Apple Fritter Cinnamon Roll Bake

I made this for breakfast recently, 
it was delicious, but honestly I think it may be more of a desert rather than a breakfast food.
Served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, that's how I see it in my future.
Be prepared to swoon and be prepared for a trip to the dentist afterward,
this bake is sweet, sweet, sweet!!

Apple Fritter Cinnamon Roll Bake  
Click here for the recipe.

This is all you will need...

the cinnamon rolls cut up and tossed into a prepared baking dish.

I cooked my 2, cut-up apples on the stove top although it said to microwave them.

The cooked apples go on top of the cut up cinnamon rolls,

top that with 5 tablespoons of melted butter combined with 1/3 of a cup of brown sugar.
Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Then forget to take a picture of it when it comes out of the oven,
that always happens
* sigh *

But here it is plated, drilled with the icing that came with it.
Just put that icing in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it up.
Then, it drizzles beautifully!!
And don't forget, the full and accurate details for this recipe are here.

This rates, I will definitely make this again!

Saturday Critters ~ 150 ~

Two weeks ago I shared images of my yard birds with you guys here.
One of the birds I photographed and shared was a 
White Breasted Nut Hatch.

This bird was hilarious as he posed and posed and hammed it up like no other.
I can't delete these without sharing them...
you had to be with me to really get it but perhaps seeing these images will help you understand.

He jumped to another branch in the tree and I thought we were done...
but he started back up again...

he gave me that stare, "are you getting this"??
It was hilarious...but I'm sure you had to be here with me, 
perhaps now you feel like you were!

Sharing images of this cute little White Breasted Nut Hatch.

New Hope & Ivyland Railroad

This past Wednesday was a beautiful fall day. 
Rain was forecasted for Thursday so...
we decided last minute, spur of the moment to take a ride out to New Hope, Pa.
and ride the railway to no where, for the Fall Foliage Excursion.

One half hour out and one half hour back, non stop...
destination, only to have fun!!
The ride had live narration, a beautiful view and we even saw a few deer.

Lot's more from New Hope to follow!!

Good Fences ~ Edition 136 ~

I photograph this horse all the time.
We pass him on our way to and from our bike path each time we ride.
I enjoy living in an area that is both coastal and rural.

This big guy usually hangs out up by the barn,
but as soon as he see's me, he always comes to greet me.

He's curious, smart and beautiful...
so why does he think that the grass is greener on the other side?!

Sharing these pretty horse and fence images with my good friend

Yarn Along

This is my proudest Yarn Along to date.
This Guernsey Wrap has been on my needles forever...
but I never grew tired of working on it because the pattern is forever changing.
I love the yarn, from Plymouth Yarn Company,
it is Cashmere De Cotton, 10% Cashmere and 90% Cotton.
Made in Italy, it was a joy to work with.

It is a gift for Christmas and I could not be more thrilled with the finished product.

And if you are wondering how long it is...

it's it is drying on my yoga mat and it did not even fit!

But don't get any ideas about yoga in this house...
the yoga mat is for blocking and drying hand knits only.

I am joining Ginny at Small Things
for Yarn Along

Scenes from Yesteryear...

Staying alert during a ride in the car is so important.
This is a struggle for I knit, or do I enjoy the view?
I generally choose the view and I am so glad I did on this day...

Could you imagine missing this?
A few weeks ago the hubs and I were in South Jersey looking at property,
we both saw this and as I shouted the hubs was pulling over, he saw it too.
But you must know that he is well "schooled" as he was on the shoulder before I even shouted.

This mural was amazing, a true work of art.
I wish more people would/could do this, 
it is such a great way to beautify an ordinary building!
And can you imagine, this is a Self Storage Building, one of the best I have ever seen.
