Summer Strawberry Scones

Summer Strawberry Scones

I’m not ready.

Starbucks recently released their Pumpkin Spice Latte.  This morning I listened to news reports that claimed flu shots are available early this year.  Well you know what?!  I am not ready to let go of summer just yet.

Yes, I complain of the heat and the dehydrating temperatures, but I am not ready to give up sandals, warm nights, and beach trips just yet.

I want to hold on to summer just a minute longer.  I want to continue eating summer fruits and veggies.  I want to be able to make these strawberry scones for another couple of weeks.
