Recipe For Cheese And Tomato Scones

This recipe represents the proverbial straw that broke the camels’ back. A few years back, a so called friend asked me to email a company about someone else cheating in a competition they were hosting. She asked me because she didn’t want to damage her relationship with her sponsor. But I didn’t for one minute consider my relationship with them. It’s a repeating pattern in my life where I put my friends’ needs and wants before what is good for me. Last year, someone in the social media business who I thought was my friend, sent me a message asking me to please create a recipe and post it to her client’s page to get the ball rolling for a competition. I really didn’t mind and so I made these cheese and tomato scones, with International Scone Week in mind. I did not follow the competition and regretted helping, as a whole lot of bloggers were sent product in a drop off to encourage them to enter and they didn’t bother. I didn’t get the drop off and so used my own money to help her client. And for no reward! I decided there and then that I would have to toughen up and learn to say no to people who don’t have my best interests at heart. You won’t say no to these amazing scones which worked our perfectly for lunch time meals at work for Dave and I.

  17. Isn’t working with people such a joy? (Not!) The older I get, the more intolerable I grow with the shenanigans of others. I’m a believer in karma. What goes around comes around and only good things will come to you and your honesty.

    At any rate, these scones look fab! I cannot believe the rise / lift on them. Beautiful! Wishing I had some to pack in my work lunch today…

  19. You always amaze me with how unethical people are. But really, I shouldn’t be this naive. I receive so many emails from people claiming wanting to help me and my blog, but in reality, reading in between the lines, they are only looking out for their own interests as I can’t see how their “offer” is at all helpful. These scones look like the single most delicious recipe you have ever posted…..and you have so many scrumptious recipes! I can’t wait to try these.
