September Tea/Garden Journal

September Tea/Garden Journal: The Charm of Home
It is time for the September Tea/Garden Journal.  The garden is now down to just a few enjoyable flowers and herbs.  We had a very wet year here with fungus and pests were a problem.  In my garden today I have zinnias, mums, rosemary, crabapples, and the lavender is having it's second bloom.

September always seems like a romantic month to me.  It is where summer gives us it's last kiss and fall ushers in the coziness of cooler temps.  It was sunny in this window a few minutes ago and when the clouds rolled over I started taking my pictures.  I always will prefer cloudy moody shots over bright sun.  I love the way the light is coming through this beautiful lace curtain.  Lace curtain provided by Heritage Lace.

My teacup today is a brown transferware pattern called Charlotte made by Royal Staffordshire.

The Last Rose of Summer

S'mores Crescent Pastry: The Charm of Home
It is literally the last rose of summer this week.  I might have a few more in the garden but by then it will be fall.  

The Last Rose of Summer: The Charm of Home
The post is inspired by this little antique teacup I found recently.  I liked it so much because it was brown.  I don't see these teacups made in brown ever.  It has no marking on the bottom so, I don't know the maker.

S'mores Crescent Pastry: The Charm of Home
I had sheet music to fit the post.  It is really old piano/organ sheet music.  I would say at least from the early 1900's.  

S'mores Crescent Pastry: The Charm of Home
The treat today is a s'mores crescent pastry. They are super easy to make and the children loved them.  

S'mores Crescent Pastry: The Charm of Home
I used a package of ready-made Pillsbury Crescent rolls.  I rolled them out and spread marshmallow fluff and milk chocolate chips over that.  Then I rolled them up and baked as directed.  When finished I melted (in the microwave) some Pillsbury Fluffy Vanilla Marshmallow frosting and drizzled that over them and then I melted some of the chocolate chips (also, in the microwave) and drizzled that over the rolls. And then you have a plain crescent roll turned pastry!     

Enjoy this last bit of summer.  It is going..going...gone.

Apple Stack Tea

Apple Stack Tea: The Charm of Home
I made my cheater version of apple stack cake this week.  It is a traditional Appalachian recipe.  I went out of my way to make it gooey!  Nothing says fall is coming more than an apple dessert, snuggly quilts, and a steaming hot drink.

Apple Stack Tea: The Charm of Home
The way I made this was with a spice cake boxed mix and ready-made cream cheese icing.  I just sauteed four large apples with 4 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.  I added the pecans for looks but, I discovered they discolored the apples.  So, I won't do that again.  I have seen the cake iced with just the pecans on top and the apples in the middle.  It tasted delicious.  The children gave it really good reviews and it is just about gone in 24 hours.  

Apple Stack Tea: The Charm of Home
The teacup is hinting at dry and crunchy fall leaves.  The teacup is made by Grace's Teaware.

Apple Stack Tea: The Charm of Home
Have any of you made an apple stack cake before?  There are many versions of it.  I would love to make another one with more stacks and maybe apple butter between the layers. Some of the cakes are even more like a stack of cookies.  A very intresting recipe.
