I want so badly to tell you the drama of our clothes dryer.

About how my dear, sweet husband broke it because he forgot to change a setting.  How he nearly shocked himself trying to fix it, and lost a screwdriver in an inaccessible place.  How the repair man came and with 15 minutes (and $128), brought our nonfunctioning dryer back to life.

I want to tell you the whole hilarious story.  But it wouldn’t be right.  It would make John look like a macho guy from a sitcom who idiotically breaks things around the house, and me look like the nagging TV wife that has to put up with his shenanigans.

Nope.  Not going to do it.  Because the reality is that I do ridiculous things, too.

Like overworking the food processor until it smokes, or coaxing the blender into exploding hot soup all over the kitchen (just to name a few.)

I’m not nearly perfect enough to publicly poke fun at John’s little slip up.

Instead, I’m going to tell you about scones.  Scones that are delightful with your morning cuppa.  A little spicy, a little sweet, and chock full of whole wheat and flax seeds.

Scones that are perfect to snack on while you catch up on the loads of laundry that were waiting for you while the dryer was on holiday.  Some of which may be towels that you used to clean up the latest culinary explosion (ahem, marinara sauce.)

If you’ve also recently broken or spilled something, have a scone.  Or offer them to the repair man.  They’re tasty.


2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 T baking powder
2 T ground flax seed
1/4 t salt
3 chai tea bags
1/3 cup canola
1 cup almond milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Stir together dry ingredients, including the contents of the tea bags. Add in oil and milk.  Knead gently until well combined.

Divide dough into two rounds.  Flatten each round and cut into 6 wedges.  Sprinkle with sugar if desired.  Bake 10-14 minutes, or until sides no longer look doughy.
