Mother’s Day indulgences

May 10th, 2005 · 1 Comment


My Mother’s Day indulgences included oatmeal scones with loganberry jam. The scones are a new recipe I created, using soy butter instead of butter, and adding wheat germ and rice bran for extra nutrition to the oatmeal and flour. I found the Swedish loganberry jam on a shelf at T&C and brought it home as a treat. Yes, the plates too were a small indulgence, something I searched for weeks to find. Sunday afternoon I took time off from my usual endeavors of gardening, blogging and desk tidying to read Song of the Azalea. Although I didn’t know it at the time, this autobiography of a former Communist in China turned out to be an appropriate story for Mother’s Day. More review of this book to be published later…and time for my morning indulgence again today…
