Tonight we are headed to Babe’s for the best fried chicken in the state of Texas with my sister-in-law and her hubby. Because it will be served with creamed corn, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and biscuits, I thought it might be good to have a little lighter dessert afterward.
This morning, I made fresh lemon-blueberry scones (recipe is on the blog). Because it is still so hot out and the humidity is really high today, I thought I would cut up fresh fruit and serve over the scones with a spoonful of whipped cream. So that will be our dessert.
After sampling the peaches and blueberries, they weren’t exactly the sweetest, so I added cut up strawberries to the peaches and blueberries, and sprinkled a little strawberry jello to make a sweet syrup. This will be so fresh looking poured over the scones, which will be served in individual little triffle dishes. (Use pretty wine glasses or goblets if you prefer.) Topped with the sweetened whipped cream, and folks, I think we have a winner!
Great ending to our fried chicken dinner! Remember…All’s well that ends with a great meal!
