Test Drive (Savory Ricotta and Scallion Scones)

skipaheadI hope it finally feels like spring is on it’s way where you are. It definitely is peeking out of the shadows this week in Minnesota. All of the snow is starting the melt, leaving dead grass, road sand, and winter litter in it’s wake. I’ll take it though. A few weeks of brown and dirty is alright by me; I know that green and rainy is not far behind!

Last night I texted E and told him “family walk at 6.” It was a tiny bit chilly, but we took Little K out for a walk. The pups stayed home since this was our first “test drive” of Little K’s new ride, but we’ll bring them along next time for sure!

I did my own little test drive made these savory scones a few nights ago, my first attempt at making a savory bread. Although they were very tasty, I don’t expect I’ll be making them again in the near future. No sir. The spring bug got me. Salads, and fruits, and dinners on the grill for this girl! These scones are perfect with a bowl of soup on a rainy or snowy afternoon.

Overall: four-star
