Yesterday was a blustery day blowing swirls of the light snow and the tree branches! With our snow covered streets it was a Norman Rockwell winter picturesque morning. Perhaps his paintings and illustrations quickly come to mind, because Stockbridge, MA is a little over an hour's drive west from our home on the MA Turnpike. It is a fav road trip to visit this very familiar museum filled with his works.
While the snow was blowing outside, we were very comfortable indoors. The computers, the cell phones and the iPad were in constant use. The question of the morning: Would the Metro-North travel resume to NYC, anytime soon?
Breakfast was quick and yummy! Whenever our freezer's supply of muffins is gone, (and it was gone) there are always Craisin Raisin Twists. :) Previously, I have posted about my fam's happiness of biting into a Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Twist that is filled with Plumped Raisins/Craisins. Usually, I soak the dried fruit in Apple Juice for added flavor. However, last week there was no apple juice to be found in my home. However, we live in New England and cider is a staple in our fridge! Cider it was!
Yummy, I learned that Apple Cider gives Craisins & Raisins a nice tangy flavor. In a 1 cup container (with a lid) fill 1/2 full with Craisins and/or Raisins. Pour Cider to cover dried fruit and place lid on top and into the fridge. I use a 1 Cup Ziploc. Store in fridge for 2 days and the plumped fruit will be ready to use. This stores well about 2 weeks in the fridge.
As of yesterday morning we are liking the tang of Craisins & Raisins that have been swimming in Apple Cider. The Flaky Cinnamon Twists were baked following the package directions (and until lightly browned) and adding 6-7 plumped Craisins/Raisins in the middle of the dough before twisting.
A quick and yummy breakfast included Cheesy Scrambled Eggs, half a Grapefruit & Coffee.
We did enjoy!
