Frost and Food

Taking a page from Zoey @ Perennial Passion, I am moving my containers in before the frost tonite. Well, Hubby has brought them in, and he's only gotten them as far as the garage, AND I don't really know what I am going to do with them, but, I have started! I have geraniums out there that I want to save, but the Mandevilla and the canna are in the garage, for now. And that's farther than they've ever gotten before!

This lovely creation is Braciole. It is yummy and it doesn't appear often enough at our table. It is round steak covering pork steak with salami, egg, green onion and mozzarella cheese stuffed inside. It is a gift my boss gives me a few times a year. It is as fabulous as it looks, but I would venture that it is a frustrating thing to make, so I will let her make it for us!
Mini fruit pizzas I made for Jeff to take to work. He is still working graveyard and the employees bring treats to share. I am sorry, but I've let him skip more than one turn, I think. I will have to make up for it when volleyball season ends.



  1. Those mini pizzas are beautiful! Do you actually use pizza dough for that?

  2. Those fruit pizzas look yummy!
    We have had such an early fall,the leaves peaked a week early, and it's just been plain miserable the last few days. But still no frost.

    The Braciole looks interesting and Yummy...

  4. Way to go, Sissy. You will be happy you saved those plants next year.

    That food looks magazine cover beautiful! I have never heard of Braciole, but it looks like something I would enjoy. I bet they gobbled up your cookies!

  5. Well you just made me hungry very early in the morning. :)

  6. The Braciole looks interesting...and a lot of work, I would think. The mini fruit pizzas look delicious.

    I brought in some of the plants I want to save just in time, too; they're in the garage for now, but I've got to make room for some of them in the house soon!

  7. Yummy! I put a flower box under the pickup Fri night. But felt crappy last night and was under the impression it wouldn't frost here. Well, it did. RIP plants. I do have one orange hibiscus to bring in.

    Winter is coming too soon!


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
