Oatmeal scones

by grainnep

I’m on a short mad dash round the east coast of the US for work, in to NY, down to Florida, up to Washington DC, home via NY in time for our wedding anniversary..just in time!
Iv eaten well, amazing salads and fish, huge portions though, HUGE. My one bug bear on this short trip – crap coffee, filtered muck tasting of nothing. Ive had to take to ordering an espresso after dinner as thats the only way to get something half decent. That doesn’t help the jet lag but it’s so worth it. When I’m home I’m looking forward to one of Dom’s special brews…..oh and a scone…
