Weeks have passed.....












I've been busy...honest I have.  Baking each week as usual....suppers as usual... I cook every day.  Just keep putting off posting til I do something else and all of sudden it is midnight and then...I think I'll do it in the morning...which I don't because that's when I read your blogs...and then..it's noon and then...well...you see what happens.

These were yesterday's strawberry scones.  I made them for my garbage guys.  Yep....I bribe them.  This is what they took away with smiles on their faces.  I told them straight out that I was bribing them as well as saying thank you for always taking everything I put out there.  They said "bribes are good" .... and cheerfully loaded up the 5 bags of grass, leaves and shrub clippings...as well as 5 twined 4 foot long bundles of Nanking bush ...  an old length of garden hose and a complete, full grown, dead spirea shrub.   I love my guys....  they treat me well.

However, one of them did mention they wondered why they hadn't seen me for some time.... to which I said..uh, oh.... I must be falling behind on the muffin quota.  Sorry...I'll attend to that straight away.... so, two weeks in a row they've had warm from the oven goodies.  Next week, if it is not raining... I don't know...they could be out of luck, I may be out golfing....finally.  But, yesterday they picked up two more houses after ours..turned the corner and parked the huge truck in front of my neighbour's ...and proceeded to have their coffee and fresh scones.  Hahahahha.... that did make me laugh.   Doesn't take much to amuse me.... it made my day.

Thanks guys!!  I love ya...












Next week.... double chocolate chunk cookies....

Aren't you nice to your garbage guys! Maybe I should start bribing mine as well, but wait, then they would expect it... too much bribery goes on in Chicago as it is! :-)

These look delicious. Wow, I never thought of baking something for my trash guys. And, we put out every week almost 4 of the big size city bins worth of green stuff (we have an acre and always doing lots of yard work and tree trimming). I must do that some time for them.

You're too nice -- those scones are to die for!

I love that you bribe the garbage guys! I bake for the receptionist at the doctor's office all the time. I always get an appointment when I need it and I never have to wait for hours in the waiting room!
