Americans should just replace the c with a t and be done with it, because 'stone' is way more descriptive of the American baked good compared to what it should be.

Both are essentially meant to be vehicles for better things anyway. Clotted cream and jam or cream cheese, respectively.

I just looked up the pastry and it looks like a cross between a muffin and a biscuit outside the US. What’s the texture supposed to be like?

I’m buying presents for my husband right now, but I’m sure the true gift to him was that his online movie database was useful to me. :P

Did you throw your back out? That can even happen to physically active people and can completely immobilize them.

I agree with Bagels, heavy, bland and boring.

But real scones, British scones, not those horrible American ones, are amazing. With some clotted cream and jam :drool:

I wonder if they sell the British kind here in the states. I’ll have to try them.




When did saying “This is very [insert ingredient] forward” become a thing in the culinary world? It’s like a thing everyone says now and I’m not sure if I should hate it like I do with the term game-changer.

I've tried some of the American variety and they are really dense and almost biscuit like in texture. English ones are lighter, more crumbly and savoury in comparison.

Not sure if it's actually your birthday or not, but just incase, Happy Birthday! :applause:

Drier than cake, moister than cookies. Crumbly but soft on the inside.

Facebook's rebrand to Meta Platforms. It's ironic that a company that used to think of themselves as "the hacker company" has essentially become MetaCortex.

I was told by my husband that the things received in ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ are cumulatively added with each day. That is a lot of birds and leaping and dancing people. :blargh:

Wait, wait wait... which part? :squint: The dense and rigid part or the light and crumbly bit?

It's less moist than a muffin (and certainly not as sweet) and denser than an American "biscuit", though it's in the form of one and baked similarly.

It's really only good with plenty of topping, especially clotted cream (a spreadable cream halfway between heavy cream and butter) and jam or honey, or for savoury cheese scones some spreadable cheese or whipped herb butter.

I like being touched much more than I appear, but my own body annoys me to no end when I recoil from my husband touching me. As a result he’s sometimes hesitant to touch me, as I tend to twitch like a hypersensitive cat even when I can see him doing it.

It’s annoying but I can’t help it.

I'm thinking I don't want to go to work tomorrow and that I've come to the firm conclusion, that work is deeply unjust. I feel it is my duty to fight against this injustice.

Which will be best accomplished by sitting around in my dressing gown for a few more days, reading books, watching crap on youtube, shovelling sugary confectionary into my face hole and staring out the window in a manner that implies deep thought, but infact betrays complete mental vacancy.
