Benedict, cherry-cardamom scones and lemon curd

Did y'all see that Benedict Cumberbatch was just found to be second cousin 16 times removed to King Richard III? As my friend Liz tells me, "You always knew he was royalty!"


Related only geographically to birthplace of both Ben and Rich are the scones and lemon curd I made today. They made a fine lunch for the boys, a touch of dessert for me, and the curd served as a surrogate sunshine in today's sky of gray.
