Simple Scones Whether for Mother’s Day brunch or for tea time, these scones are a great addition to the table. Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup sugar 1 tsp. baking powder ¼ tsp. baking soda ½ tsp. salt 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen ¼ - ½ cup dried blueberries ½ cup sour cream 1 large egg Directions: Making sure the oven rack is in the middle position, preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Grate the butter into the flour mixture with a cheese grater. Use your hands to work the butter in until it resembles coarse meal. Gently mix in blueberries. In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth. Using a fork, stir the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough into a ball. The dough may be sticky and it may seem like there isn’t enough liquid at first, but as you continue to work the dough, it will come together. Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7-8 inch circle about ¾ inches thick. Sprinkle top with 1 tsp. of sugar. Use a sharp blade to cut into 8 triangles. Place on a cookie sheet about one inch apart. Bake until golden brown, about 15 – 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
HARD WATER SHOWERHEAD BUILDUP If the waterfrom your apartment’s showerhead is spraying out in all directions, it's probably time to give it a deep clean. Hard water causes the white build-up on the shower head that eventually can lead to problems with some of the holes clogging up. Mix a solution of equal parts vinegar and water, then pour it into a plastic bag. Submerse the showerhead in the vinegar solution fastening off the baggie with a twist tie or piece of string. Let the solution sit for 15 to 20 minutes, then remove and scrub the holes with an old toothbrush. Rinse well and you’re ready to shower! .

GRILL SEASON REMINDERS Time to light up the barbeques and get grilling! It’s definitely the season when more people will be cooking outdoors on their grills. Just a few reminders to our residents, so that our apartment complex is as safe as possible: Only gas grills are permitted – charcoal grills, standing fire pits and turkey fryers are prohibited Grills should be placed well away from the patio or balcony door and close to the railing. Never leave a grill unattended. Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it. Make certain that the grill is level and stable. Use insulated, flame retardant mitts, barbeque tongs, and utensils when grilling. Propane tanks are never to be stored outdoors near a grill. Only tanks attached to grills are permitted. Turn off the fuel supply to the grill first and then to the burners when grilling is done. Check the grill regularly for signs of wear and tear, especially hose cracks and leaks. KNOW WHERE THE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ARE LOCATED IN THE STAIRWELL AND KNOW HOW TO USE THEM PROPERLY. Be safe this season and enjoy the benefits of outdoor cooking!

WHO DO I NEED TO TALK TO? Any time you come into the leasing office with a question or concern, please see our leasing agent, Chere Davis. She can answer almost any question you have, and if not, forward your question or concern on to our property manager, Tami. Chere is the contact person for our residents and is responsible for assisting residents as much as possible. Tami’s role includes a multitude of “behind the scenes” jobs such as reporting, record keeping, documentation and inspections, which may limit the amount of time she has to work on the daily functions of the leasing office. If there is an item that Chere can’t help you with, she will certainly pass the information or question on to Tami, who will contact you as soon as her schedule will allow. We appreciate your understanding.
