Today is a very exciting day in Beezus, because we decided the best way to spend a day when none of us have finals is by having a Lord of the Rings marathon. After all, it’s nearly that exciting time all us cool people have been waiting for anxiously–the release of the Hobbit movie. So I thought, what better way to celebrate the end of the semester than LOTR?
And then I remembered that “Hobbit Scone” recipe I pinned ages ago and thought to myself, “I must have them.” (Original recipe here)
I admit a part of my recent resurgence in blogging has been due to the fact that I’m reading “Julie & Julia” right now and her blogging success story makes me feel infinitely guilty for neglecting my own online ranting efforts. So it’s not all that surprising that I’ve also been feeling the irresistible urge to cook things. Lots of things.
Of course, I have been struggling all semester to master the strange inferno that is our oven, and at last I’ve arrived at the issue–the bottom coils still work just fine, but the top ones don’t do a darn thing. Thus, very uneven heat. I moved the rack up a bit and voila, excellent (and adorable) hobbit scones.
The adorable shape is courtesy of my friend Feliks, who got me a lovely rolling pin full of all sorts of cookie cutters for Christmas last year. I found their tiny-ness exceptionally adorable (and perfectly appropriate for a hobbit)

I promise I really do learn things at college, besides just the ways in which an apartment can be broken. It’s just I doubt the endeavors of me wrestling with literature or psychology would really interest anyone, other than as a slow descent into madness.
Anyway, back to pretending to revise my science fiction story. Happy finals week, college kids!
