I picked up a Chicago Diner chai scone at Whole Foods. This was a pretty rare event for me because I usually don’t buy prepared vegan food, especially baked goods. However, we were without a stove and I wanted a scone! It was $2.69 and pretty tasty. Not something I would buy all the time but it was good.
What is the best way to serve a scone? On a vintage Fire King snack set! I picked up a set of 4 (4 plates, 4 cups) at a thrift shop. They were only $1.18 per set. The pattern is called Primrose. I am sentimentally attached to the Primrose pattern because it is the pattern my maternal grandma had (not to be confused with my paternal grandma who has appeared on this blog). I inherited a few pieces from her and I still use her Fire King Primrose loaf pan to make sweet breads.
As for our old stove, it came with the house and was the cheapest builder’s model stove. That stove already had issues and we agreed the next time something else goes wrong with it, it was out of here. The oven stopped working so it was time for goodbye. I didn’t want to invest a single penny into that hunk of junk. I’ve got a new stove now and I am very happy with it. It has five burners and a convection oven feature that I can’t wait to try out.
