Well, I had a soup and baking day yesterday, it was the first day of September and I felt all Autumn-ish and baker-ish! The soup was a necessity as I had some ham stock and a few bits of ham lurking with intent at the back of the fridge, (soup to follow tomorrow, I want to talk scones now!) and then instead of serving the soup with bread, I served it with cheese and chive scones……..my ultimate favourites on the scone front.
