Every spring our church ladies have a ‘spring tea.’ And of course, scones go with tea. Well, probably starting 7 or 8 years ago, I started making my ‘famous’ scones for the tea. And of course, that was pre-weight loss, pre-changing-the-way-I-eat, and pre-changing-the-way-I-look-at-food. So the main ingredients in the scones are white flour, heavy cream, and sugar. And they still ask me to make them almost every year. Which I did somewhat reluctantly last year. But it is a little bit of a struggle for me. For one thing, they taste good. And there is no way I am making 100 scones without eating a few of them. And I am really struggling with my weight and trying to eat right right now. Then there is the other ‘moral dilemma.’ I really don’t think food like this is healthy for people. Why should I be making something I think is bad for your health and serving it to other people? But then I think, well, am I just being ‘holier than thou’ and trying to force my own opinions on other people? If they don’t get it from me they will just get it elsewhere.
Writing this out, I think I already have my answer. But I really would be interested in hearing you all’s opinion on this topic.
