Last night, I just had to have a scone. Just HAD to. I found this post with recipe online, halved it, used regular milk instead of cream, and raisins instead of currants. Wow! Sooner than I would have imagined, I had amazingly fluffy scones. YUM!
This morning, in a fit of contemplation, I thought to myself, “What is this pastry–sweet and fatty–craving?”
AHA! It’s about that time when I get my PMS symptoms. Either I’m really tired or feel like I’m going to catch a cold, or want to eat lots and lots of butter. I happened to be sitting cross-legged on the floor, so I put my index finger on the Three Yin Intersection acu-point, on my lower leg. And immediately, I took a nice deep long breath. Like a sigh of relief. Ahhhhhh.
It’s so easy to forget. I do all the time. And if I took a moment to reflect and test out some acu-points, before reaching for the scone (or croissant or cookie), I might get some longer-lasting relief.
Anyway, wanted to share that with you. But since I like to look for a silver lining in each cloud, I am thrilled that I’ve come across such an easy and yummy scone recipe!
