Distraction from the purge

UPDATE: I found the link for the scones. Here it is: https://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/buttermilk-cheese-scones

Purging, sorting, dumping. Sigh! Purging, sorting, dumping. Putting your house on the market is a lot of work.

I need some distraction and I’ve been baking for the crew at work. Made scones–Gruyere and Swiss and dried cranberry served with some homemade mandarin marmalade.


It was very hard to resist right out of the oven

Ugh!! I can’t find the recipe I use for this scones? And I want to make it again. Oh well. . .

I wanted to share a recipe and I decided to share one of my favorite quiche recipe–smittenkitchen.com Leek and Mushroom Quiche that I change with what I have in my kitchen. I posted in my old blog Rainbow Swiss chard and Comte Cheese version.


Not the best picture, doesn’t do the quiche justice



My saga of dirty coffee mugs

I don’t know why it bothers me but it does. A sinkful of dirty mugs the first thing in the morning is so annoying as I posted 2+ years ago (previous dirty mug post). It hasn’t change much at work.

At least you have to give these folks credit for their stacking skills

My problem is that there are people that I work with that think Mom works with us and will take care of their dirty dishes. Mind you, there are signs that are up right above the sink about what to do with a dirty dishes.


Not that should even be an issue for any adult

And as you can see there is dish soap and sponges to wash your dirty dish or there is a dishwasher is right next to the sink.


Pretty obvious, don’t you think?

I just wanted to end this rant with my favorite sign I’ve ever made. I thought it was funny and helpful. It was obvious to me that people didn’t know what to do with a dirty mug.
