Orange Ginger Scones

Orange Ginger Scones

We have been waiting on the birth of our second grandchild. This time around we will be having a grandson. We are thrilled to be welcoming in this new grandbaby. Last week when our daughter went in for doctor’s appointment the doctor thought she would be having it any day, but here it just about a week later and still no baby.  I guess it will happen when the baby is ready… but in the mean time the waiting is not so easy.

I will keep you posted.

Are you bored with my scone recipes? I hope not, because for some reason they are one of my favorite things to bake.  With the kids visiting this past weekend I took the opportunity to bake a batch for them to enjoy. Orange and ginger is a new combination for me, I know that I have never put the two flavors together before.
