Mondays just got better!

It's a blog cafe kinda day!!!

Today we're in Wales!! Oh the beautiful countryside we get to visit with Marie at A year from Oak Cottage. She's taking us to a quaint little place called Llangollen! (pronounced CLANG Gock Lyn!) It's charming and relaxing and she even includes a recipe for her delicious scones. Served with clotted cream and strawberry jam.

I'm excited to try it... Does anybody out there know what clotted cream is or how to make it? Inquiring Jenny's want to know!

Hurry on over to A year from Oak Cottage and have a wonderful time exploring the countryside of my ancestors (it's true! I have ancestors from Wales!)

Hi, Jenny! Didn't you love Marie's tasty post?! Hubby & I love the UK, but we've not been to Wales yet--hope to one day! You would love clotted cream... Clotted cream is a thick yellow-ish cream, often used in place of butter in some parts of the UK, and it's made by special process using unpasteurised cow's milk. It is DELICIOUS! You can't get clotted cream here. But I make a mock Devonshire cream, using sour cream, which makes a pretty tasty substitute. Glad to share the recipe, if you'd like to try. Hope all is well there with you. :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))
