Good morning! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was great, an extra hour is sleep is always welcome. My mother arrived for a nice long visit and in addition to celebrating my birthday we have many plans.
One of the things we love to do is bake and this weekend is no exception. We made a fabulous recipe for Overnight Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls from Averie Cooks. Which by the way I mistakenly thought was a pumpkin cinnamon roll recipe and in fact linked to that on Friday. Sorry.
The recipe is easy but is a little time consuming because the rolls have to raise for 21/2 hours, so the overnight option is perfect.We assembled the rolls before bed and Sunday morning let them raise for one hour, then bake for 25 minutes.
Thirty minutes later we had, hot, gooey, perfectly fluffy cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. A cup of tea, the NY Times, a pile of magazines and a good book and you have the perfect leisurely Sunday morning breakfast.
Now I know a sugar laden roll is not everyone’s idea of the perfect breakfast so if that is the case save the roll for a snack after you have had your bacon and eggs.
Are you a fig fan? I have to be honest, aside from Fig Newtons I do not eat many figs. However this year I have decided to branch out and try a few new things. The figs are drooping from the branches of trees here and consequently they are everywhere I turn, the grocery store, the farmers market. I am looking for something new to try them with, other than the standard blue cheese and drizzled honey.

Doesn’t this Cranberry and Fig Chutney recipe look like a great accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner? Or maybe on left-over turkey sandwich?

Or perhaps a little Fig Ice Cream from Wonky Wonderful would be something to try?
Do you have any fig recipes that you make often and would be willing to share? Or for that matter any delicious chutney or relish recipes that you will be making for Thanksgiving?
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is a month away? I cannot believe how FAST these last few months of the year seem to be going. I have so much coming up in the next few months that I wish there was a way to slow things down.
Oh well, I guess the only thing to do is take a breath, enjoy the little moments and hold on for the ride.
I hope that you have a great day!
