Cool Fall Day

Hello!  I'd like to share with you about what to do on a cool fall day. 

How about a hot cup of tea with a spoon of honey.  Well, might as well make a whole pot and put it under the tea cozy so you can have more than one cup.

Then while you're baking bread for the day, save some dough and make apple cinnamon buns.

Mine are not from a recipe, and are never fancy.  I just flatten out my dough on the countertop, spread with butter, brown sugar, and apples.  Then roll it all up and slice.  

I like to use my glass pans with parchment paper in them. I find I make less of a mess for latter this way. ~smile~ 

Sometimes I put the cinnamon in the middle before rolling, or I just sprinkle some on top.  
I didn't get a picture of them fresh out of the oven, but it makes a lovely syrup with the juicy apple that my family loves.  I also add a bit of icing glaze to top them off.  

While the buns were rising, this day.  I decided to move my philodendron plant.  It was just sitting on the window sill and the vines were getting too big for this spot.  I had some onions hanging in the window and I thought it would be a great place to put the plant.  So out came the onions and in went the pot. :)  Simple. I have the onions in a bowl on the counter...they'll need a new home. 

I love the mesh hanger, and it's hung on a hook that is over the curtain rod (a pressure shower curtain rod) so it's able to hold the weight, and move from side to side as well depending on if I need more light or not.  

It's a cool fall here in the Yukon, and the temperature is rarely far from the freezing mark.  This day was rainy and cool, but today it's warmed up to about 10C with the sun shining.  

Thank you for dropping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you may be.

Hello, I always love seeing people use a tea cozy. And I like the easy way you make your buns I bet with the apple on them they are delicious! I just had a cup of Raspberry leaf tea! We have had a much cooler week here and I am so very glad! Going to make some burgers for dinner and then maybe watch a wholesome good movie.
I think of you often!
Blessings, Roxy

Apple in cinnamon rolls sounds delicious! I'll mention it to my husband since he is our bread baker and likes to make it from scratch once or twice a year, usually in November. :-) Often he makes it cinnamon rolls.

Down here in Texas we are going to be in the 80s all week during the days. Sometimes I get a little homesick for cooler autumns, but not quite Yukon cool. ;-)

Your tea cup and cozy are so pretty! Thanks for sharing a little of your life with us.

What a pretty teacup! Your yummy cinnamon buns are perfect with a cup (or two!) of tea. We continue to have Indian summer in Ontario. It feels so odd to be wearing short sleeves outside in October.

I have to give your apple cinnamon buns a try, I can only imagine how nice your home smells while they are baking.

The tea cozy looks very cozy! I agree that a nice cup of hot tea on a cool day is the perfect remedy. And I find too, when I change things around in the kitchen, it's a challenge to find a place for everything after one thing is moved. Your apple cinnamon rolls look very yummy, a great way to use up leftover bread dough!
