Indio, California: This morning I baked in
the outdoor kitchen for the last time. And I only used the oven. The
pastries were prepared in the motorhome kitchen, as everything (including the
potholders!) have been packed-away in preparation for our Tuesday departure.
Several weeks ago, an amazing-looking
recipe came up on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter or
maybe even Pinterest. Can't recall. I just know that I
saved it in my "Recipes to Try" file in OneNote. (See,
this Old Bubbe is totally hip, computer-confident, and
dealing with social media.) The recipe,
Apple Roses, from Cooking with Manuela, looked too
fun to not try:
Since this video has been viewed over three million times to
date, many are intrigued by this pastry! Manuela makes
it look so easy - and it is, but... dang, puff pastry dough is so difficult
to work with in hot weather.
Oh, yeah. It's hot again. The cold (72°) snap lasted but one day.
The only tip I will add is to notice how
thin she slices the apples. Thin is in - and thin slices
will make rolling the pastries a snap. The Apple Roses
are not very sweet, so a powdered sugar dusting just
before serving would be a nice addition.
The clubhouse closed for the season this evening. The last night. I had to bring
my own Tanqueray!
After Friday night's madness, the crowds were smaller and subdued.
Everyone was probably so sad, knowing they won't be able
to enjoy this view until November.
Fish & Chips - and a burger
We said goodbyes to the few remaining staffers - Bryon,
Romeo Caesar and Jose - and I cried all the way home.
Until my next update, I remain, your two-more-days correspondent.
