Last Supper

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.

Rose Apples

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.

Apple Roses

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!

Motorcoach Country Club

After Friday night's madness, the crowds were smaller and subdued.

Motorcoach Country Club - view from dining room

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.
