I suppose "Oat Crisp" cereal is far better than "Oat Soggy".

Post Cereals has a line of "Honey Bunches of Oats..." cereals. Your morning bowl was probably something similar to the "...with Almonds".

Biscuits aren't quite scones. They are less sweet and a little fluffier. Scones are a little richer. When I started making scones I thought the recipes I was using made them too dry. I've increased the liquid just a little bit (like 1T more than the 1/2C called for) and they are perfect for us. Mine turn out great, but I give a lot of the credit to Nordic Ware's scone pan:

Yes, now that you mention it the bunches are clustered.

Ahhh scones....

The best blueberry scones I've had were at The Flying Star Cafe in Albuquerque.

I checked their website and they're not on the menu anymore.

Alas! Woe is me!

G'night ladies, it's always a pleasure

I make to-diet-for orange-chocolate chips scones. Melt-in-your-mouth goodness.

Found this little hole in the wall cafe when the progeny and I were taking the boy off to college at ASU in 1999. Stopped in Tucumcari at Lena's Cafe on the advise of the "host" at the NM visitors' center. Didn't look like the kind of place you'd go into unless you were told the food was good. Oh, was it good!



Himself and I went to the relocated version over on Rte 66 in the mid-2000s and it was still good but didn't have the same dive-y ambiance.

When you get out of bed stand on a cold floor in your bare feet. The cramp will dissipate faster. One of those Old Wives's Tales that really work.

I find that as long as my potassium level is good, the cramps stop. That's why I go on a banana frenzy every so often. It ups my potassium level to normal.
