I'm not the best writer so I borrowed a verse from the internet and handwrote it in each card.

A few years ago my Mike & I went to Australia and had possibly the best times in our lives (besides getting married of course.) One of my fondest memories was of a day trip we took to see some caves. It was a long excursion and although seeing the caves was pretty cool; we almost deemed it not worth it until we made a pit stop at a small little shop for some scones and tea. It was very English which was a bit odd but those were the absolute best scones I've ever tasted in my life...
American scones just don't cut it I'm afraid. Anyway, I finally attempted to make Joy of Baking's scones and it wasn't as hard as I thought (considering I'm not a baker.) Fortunately I didn't need to use the kitchenaid for this which was great because I don't really know how to use it. I did ask my husband to prepare the Mock Devonshire Clotted Cream last night so we would have it nice and cold this morning. The scones came out quite well and was perfect accompanied with the cream & preserves we bought back from out Catskills Hiking Trip.
Served with English Breakfast Tea

The spread: Corn Tortillas + Grilled Chicken + Cilantro + Raw onions + Lime + Homemade Sofrito + Store Bought Salsa Verde + Homemade Spanish Rice (simple recipe of Sofrito, olive oil, tumeric for color and rice)
We ended up with a lot of leftover corn tortillas (like 95 tortillas!) So I made tortilla chips. I also squirted some lime on the chips for an extra zest. In less than 15 minutes, we snacked on a bowl of healthy and hearty chips! The husband approved!
I served it with store bought salsa & guacomole. We tried a new brand of salsa and we both didn't like it. In fact, I've never bought a jar of salsa that I liked. I much prefer to make my own. The guacomole was really good though!
