Not surprisingly, the hardest adjustment with a new baby is the lack of sleep. John is almost a month old now and I think we’re over the worst, but I still have days where I feel like a zombie much of the time. In our old life my husband and I would take full advantage of sleeping in on the weekends to make up for any lost sleep during the week. And then after sleeping in I’d bake us something sweet or he’d fry up some bacon and eggs for breakfast. It doesn’t quite work like that now and weekend mornings, and breakfasts, are quite different.
But last Sunday I managed to bake us some scones.
This time of year I always have strawberries around the house, I just can’t get enough. I’m gobbling them up every chance I can get, and putting them on top of cereal, in smoothies, and baking them into scones. I only wish I had more free time to do more baking with strawberries, but until I do, the memory of these tasty these scones will have to hold me over.
Thanks to the yogurt, these scones are softer than most, almost cake-like. The strawberries add little bursts of flavor. And they aren’t too sweet, perfect for breakfast. I think I ate three all at once, straight from the cooling rack.
I may not be able to sleep in anymore, but a strawberry scone (or three) just might almost make up for it.
