Good afternoon to you all...Oh how I love summer...And what a glorious Sunday it is. The sun is bright with uplifting cool blue hues. The birds are singing and the garden looks like a little outdoor paradise. So sad to think that we are enjoying the last few warm days of summer.
Weekends don't get much better than an afternoon lounging around the garden. Taking in a bit of sun or just a napping under a tree. And why not make your own garden the perfect hideaway. A comfy comforter set on the grass, a few pretty indoor pieces to create a little romance, comfy pillow, a few favorite magazines or books and some easy appetizing accompaniments. Viola... A perfect summer day under the sun.
For my husband and I, I chose an easy to prepare quiche and apple tart that require minimal time in the kitchen. (recipe below) No time to waist in the kitchen... Sunny days are better spent outdoors don't you think??
Have a fabulous Sunday and a great Labor Day. Hugs to you all lovely friends.. Thank you for stopping by.
Recipe for Quick and Easy Apple Tart
- 1 whole sheet puffed pastry, cut in half
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 3 whole apples, cored, halved and sliced, but not peeled
- Store-bought caramel sauce, for serving
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the puffed pastry rectangles onto a baking pan that's been sprayed with nonstick spray or lined with parchment paper. Add the sugar, cinnamon, salt and lemon juice to the apples. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.
Arrange the apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a straight line, overlapping as you go. Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Serve with caramel sauce and chopped walnuts or pecans.
