Cranberry Apple Scones

My kids are always doing things that gross me out or surprise me. Like this morning I was making these lovely cranberry apple scones. Yum, right!

We had just had our breakfast of bacon, eggs mixed with mushrooms and onions, and sweet potato hash browns. My husband makes fun of me for making large breakfasts, but it is seriously my favorite meal of the day! But back to my story. :) After our yummy breakfast I went to work on making these delicious scones. While I was cooking my daughter brought her plate to the counter and was standing on a chair pretending to cook the few bites of eggs she didn’t eat on the now cold skillet. This didn’t bother me, she was entertained and happy. Life was good. It was when I went to grab my oven gloves, which are literally gloves, and stuffed my fingers in to get the scones out of the oven, I encountered a lovely surprise. Egg bits stuffed deep into the fingers of the gloves! Awesome! My daughter is such a lil stinker! What gross things have you encountered lately?

So I’m kinda bummed that my shredding and slicing attachment broke…AGAIN! It was $17 plus shipping to replace the disc and $30 to buy a new food processor, so when I broke it the first time I just bought another food processor. Having two has come in handy, but I don’t need a third! I’m seriously considering buying the paderno spiral vegetable slicer. Do you have one of these babies? Do you like it?

I’m so excited for Thanksgiving! What are some dishes that you make for your family? I think I’m going to start making these cranberry apple scones for our Thanksgiving breakfast each year. They aren’t too heavy, which will allow me to stuff myself during turkey time!
