Cozy up to this: Snowstorm and Scones

Last month, Boston finally got the snow that never came last winter. We had an enormous snowstorm, complete with driving bans and houses washing out to sea and super duper elevated French Toast Alerts.

Thursday night I walked into the Porter Square Shaw's and then turned around and walked out and straight over to Pemberton Farms - which was deserted. Then we had a cozy Friday at home getting ready for the storm (instead of buying bread, I made it). Friday when it got dark, the snow finally started coming down, so we did what any normal person would do and left the house. We trekked over to Davis Square, stopped in at the Burren for a drink and wandered around until we found somewhere that was serving dinner, since most places were closed.
The storm picked up Friday night, and Saturday morning you could have sledded down our front steps if you wanted to. We walked and snowshoed down to Harvard Square then up to Olde Magoun's (they were actually the only place open) then headed back home for some more shoveling.

When it's cold and snowy and all you want to do is curl up and be warm, remember that it's also a fantastic idea to turn your oven on and bake! This recipe is straight from Joy the Baker and I implore you to make it at least once before spring starts it gets too warm, so July. It will rock your world.

I made these scones twice in the same week (they were gone in a day), and while they're a little ingredient intensive, they are worth it. (This was another time when the guys at Dave's Fresh Pasta hooked me up - I couldn't find chives ANYWHERE.)

Seriously, what are you waiting for? Go. Hustle to the kitchen now!
