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.
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.
