Blueberry scones with dark chocolate are fluffy, buttery breakfast scones, bursting with blueberries and rich chunks of dark chocolate.
I can hardly believe that it is already Labor Day Weekend–the quintessential days signaling the end of summer vacation are upon us. I realize that in the majority of states, the new school year has already begun, but in Michigan, we have a steadfast rule not to start school before Labor Day.
It’s a law, even! We voted on it. Something about holding on to the last glimmers of sunshine and lazy days of summer until the last possible moment…or maybe it was something about milking the last bit of summer tourism revenue. Either way, I voted for the former.
I’ve been dragging my feet with my own lesson planning with the hope that somehow, some way, if I didn’t shore up the planning, than perhaps summer would go on forever. I still have so much Summer Living to do! Unfortunately, much like Bullwinkle pulling a rabbit out of his hat, my procrastination trick never works. Instead sunshiny miracles, I’m left feeling melancholy for the beach days that will never be, and a need to confront the inevitable long nights ahead in which I’ll need to plan lessons as if it were my job.
Oh, wait. That is my job. Drat.
The guilt of such poor planning on my part can only be assuaged by the buttery goodness stemming from my further procrastination of such necessities.
Translation: I’m hiding in the kitchen and baking blueberry scones in a last ditch effort to stall the inevitable.
Dare I say we all benefit from my foot-dragging approach, because without it, we wouldn’t be munching on these Dark Chocolate Blueberry Scones. If not for my effective procrastination techniques, we wouldn’t have such buttery scones with all of their punchy fresh blueberries, kisses of rich dark chocolate.
And where would we be then? Huh?!
I, for one, would probably be done with my lesson planning, packing up the Sons and heading toward the beach. And what fun would that be?!
(Aww, dang. I’m digging a deeper hole, here.)
But instead of being responsible, I stayed indoors baking. Suffering for my
baking addiction craft to bring you Dark Chocolate Blueberry Scones. Because I’m a giver, my Friends. And you need to have these blueberry scones.
Sigh. My job here is done.
So, I guess now the beach will have to wait another day whilst I spend the day delving into Scope, Sequence, and Calendars for the upcoming school year.
Unless of course, you’d like a blueberry pie? Because I could totally drop everything to bake you a pie right now!
Enjoy your dark chocolate blueberry scones, Friends.
