When Peter Bowker the writer of Last night’s Desperate Romantics pitched his idea of mixing the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood with Desperate Housewives he should have been shown the door; he should have been locked in the village stocks and made to regret such an absurd notion but no, some idiot obviously high on drugs or I don’t know what said yes that’s a great idea.
I am at a complete loss that this series was given the go ahead.
I don’t know if I can bare another episode in case Lizzie Siddal takes Effie Ruskin to one side and suggests she has a Bazillion to save her marriage.
Today I made scones for tea.
The Noble Scone
The man of the house would have liked clotted cream as would I but as I didn't have any we had them with lashings of butter and jam of our choice.
Scones – I make no apologies for using imperial measurements….
8 oz self raising flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 oz sugar
2 oz butter
1 egg beaten with milk added to make 5 fl oz
Oven – HOT
Rub butter into the dry ingredients then add most of the egg and milk mixture and bring it all together .
Don’t bother using a rolling pin just thump a few times and either cut into squares or triangles or use a cutter. Dab remaining egg mixture on top
Place on baking parchment lined tray and cook for about 10 minutes.
Cool on a tray for a few minutes then devour.
