The Thrill of the Hunt

We went out to breakfast this morning at Cliff's. For those of you who haven't been to Cliff's, let me tell you, it is a great place for breakfast. The breakfasts don't taste like they came from a restaurant, a la IHOP or Denny's. Biscuits made from scratch, hash browns that don't look like they came out of a box, can't beat it.

Then we went house hunting. We like to do this from time to time when we want to keep the children occupied for a little while while we are out of the apartment. We also like to pretend that we could actually afford to buy a house - ahh, someday.

Anyway, we found some really nice homes a little ways out from the Wife's work. It's a bit too far for me to commute if I were to work downtown, but since I loathe the city, it wasn't too bad. Perhaps if we can't find a way out of Houston...

Cracks me up y'all call our Scones, biscuits, and our biscuits, scones!!

Our friend from England makes authentic scones every year for our Mother's Day Tea. The only real difference between a scone and an American biscuit is that the scone is sweeter. Ok, that's probably not the only difference, but it is the primary difference in my mind. Scones also may have more density.

All I know is that I made the dreadful mistake one day of purchasing a package of crumpets at a local supermarket. Supposedly they were an imported product (I doubt it) and were there as a trial. They were inedible as far as I was concerned. The parts that didnt' taste like rubber band reminded me of cardboard. Yuck!

Hey, happy house hunting! That's always such a fun activity - until you've seen about 30 of them and can't even recall which ones you liked and didn't like.
