"The wife is like the fire, or to put things in their proper proportion, the fire is like the wife.
Like the fire, the woman is expected to cook: not to excel in cooking, but to cook,

.... be a cook, but not a competitive cook,

a school mistress, but not a competitive schoolmistress; a house-decorator but not a competitive house-decorator, etc...
She should have not one trade but twenty hobbies; she... may develop all her second bests.

Women were not kept at home in order to keep them narrow;
on the contrary, they were kept at home in order to keep them broad.

G.K. Chesterton, What's Wrong with the World?

Maple Walnut Scones

This recipe is from the Farm Chicks in the Kitchen cookbook.
They taste like maple bars.  My kids love 'em.


(p.s. Come on up for breakfast Paula and I'll make these for us. ;)

I tried them with soft wheat. didn't really work out. I need to learn more about conversions. They tasted good but the texture was dry and crumbly.
