Cravings and a Recipe...

My raging pregnancy hormones have me in quite a frenzy lately...not only do I CRY all of the time...over totally lame things...even while laughing...I am really craving a lot of foods too!!! With my other babies I would crave a few things here and there but with this one...I have a multitude of cravings...maybe she'll have some hair when she is born...

Such cravings include:

Broccoli - steamed with salt...I could have it with every dinner
Cheeseburgers - not those wimpy McD's ones but the ones loaded with fry sauce, pickles and lettuce...yummm!!!

Also, I hate to cook when I am pregnant...totally HATE it...I would rather the kids just eat cereal while I go and get a cheeseburger...everynight...and with every baby, I have always loved sandwiches...

Scones - I have been really craving these lately and I found a great recipe follows. Fun fact about scones...most of the recipes I researched online all came back to roots in UTAH...must be a mormon thing!

German Fried Scones...

2 packages dry yeast (roughly 2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup warm-hot water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons salt
3 eggs, beaten
4 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup water and then add 1 Tbsp. sugar. Pour boiling water over other 1/2 cup sugar, butter and salt. Mix well...add eggs. Add yeast mixture and 2 cups of flour, mix well. Add rest of flour. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Fry in hot oil. Can be refrigerated overnight.
Honey Butter
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2-3/4 cup honey
2-3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
Mix together and serve with scones.
