rose pink breakfast~

this books was so delicious i am back for seconds, who could resist a rose pink breakfast...



let me grab my bag and apron...







join me while i gather my abundance...

















the scent of roses permeates the garden~







looks like i am ready to set the table...









who doesn't love fresh picked roses...







the menu is all set, with just a minor change from muffins to apple roses~

















and for some quick and easy dunking, pancake bacon strips...











such a beautiful book...



and another happy ending~



~apple roses~

puff pastry
one apple
cinnamon
sugar

slice apples thin from bottom up on a mandoline. place slices in a pan with water and heat to soften, add cinnamon and sugar and let soak until pliable. i used scissors to cut in half.

spread out puff pasty and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. slice into strips. place 4 apple slices per strip and roll, place in greased mini cupcake pans and bake at 350 for 15-20' until puffed and golden. i think for an extra dimension a drizzle of caramel would be delightful~












bacon pancake strips for dunking

bacon
pancake batter
butter
syrup

learn from my mistakes... i used no fat bisquick pancake mix, the batter was too thin and they did not puff up like a full fat pancake. in other words, they were flimsy... i ended up cutting mine in half. i also didn't have a griddle, which would certainly make much prettier pancakes then being squashed in a frying pan! even though they were not pretty or full bodied, they were delicious and a lovely way to eat pancakes utensil free in the garden!











i hope you enjoyed your invitation to the garden, your invite is still open at...
