I was trying to remember when was the first time I had a scone...
I am kind of leaning towards the time we stayed at the Lodge at Koele on the island of Lanai, when we got married in 2000.
Usually whenever you have a wedding reception at a hotel in Hawaii, the hotel includes a room for you to stay in.
Since we had our reception at a golf clubhouse, the clubhouse catering gave us a room at any hotel of our choice.
We chose the Lodge at Koele, so all we had to pay for was our airfare.
The hotel had a daily afternoon tea held in their lobby area and guests could have various teas and sweets...one of them being scones.
Recently my friend, Val, gave me a package of those scones from the Lodge...these are dense but are delicious after they are toasted a little.
No need for butter or jam, the cranberries give them a lot of flavor.
I'm glad I got to re-connect with these scones, thanks Val!
