Gently roll the pastry dough, not to tightly, into a log. Cut the log into six pieces and place each piece in the muffin tin. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30. As soon as the Pastry Rolls are done turn them out onto a cookie sheet immediately while they are hot otherwise they will stick in the muffin tin. Let them cool a bit before eating as you could burn your mouth and then the whole experience of eating these tasty treats will be ruined.

Callie made "Apple Fritters" for breakfast. They are really good. I think she got the recipe from the "PioneerWoman" cookbook.(go to http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/03/apple-fritters/ ) These are light and flavorful. We had them with coffee on the deck. I finished planting the flowers in the pots on the deck and it is fun sitting on the deck for breakfast when the weather is cool and the wind is calm.
Callie loves to cook and its great having her here. I am getting new recipes and she is putting together the menus. Sunday morning is a great time for fritters, homemade donuts, and eggs bakes or fritatas. Very civilized indeed.
Instead of apples I used fresh peaches. It was awesome. When you make the icing drizzle try adding two tablespoons of peach syrup. It is yummy!

She does like having a giant turkey leg at the carnival once in a while...like maybe once a year. But for the most part she will do her own cooking thanks!

The San Luis Valley has some wonderful asparagus that grows along the canals. You just have to know where to look. Unfortunately I am not giving away my secret. But if you ever do find it you will be ruined for life from eating store bought asparagus.
Greg and Denice came by our house and picked up Don and me to go "harvesting". We had a wonderful drive. The day was beautifully warm and the sky was blue. But after awhile the storm clouds gathered and it began to rain and hail. But that didn't deter Greg and Don. They endured the pelting and gathered beautiful specimens. As soon as we got home I sorted them into spears and others that I would chop. Tomorrow we are having asparagus quiche. Yum! If it doesn't get eaten too fast I will post a picture.
