Slightly British

It is a hot one today.  Time outside was early this morning.  Cotehele and I went for a walk at the park. Mr. C enjoyed a bicycle ride.  Waiting for the delayed broadcast of the Formula One race today in Silverstone, England, I was looking for inspiration to use the last of the raspberries and nectarines.  Rhome's recent post about strawberry shortcake biscuits came to mind. We always have scones. The two ideas were just the right  combination for an indulgent lunch. It was time for a calorie splurge anyway.  hehehe   Fresh raspberries and nectarines were perfect over freshly made scones and whipped cream. And, of course, tea.

The race had some weather induced problems and pit issues created position changes. Fernando Alonso won with Sebastian Vettel came in second.  All in all an interesting race.  I miss the F-1 race in Indianapolis like crazy.  We may never have another chance to see one in person.  Scones, fruit and tea is as close to being there as we got today.

Wishing you peace, joy and love ~ and a good week. ;-)

That looks delicious! After a week of vacation, I definitely don't need any more calorie splurging, but just one bite couldn't hurt. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the mention! I never thought of combining raspberries and nectarines, and not about making a shortcake type dessert of them either! Looks amazing.
