I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m sorry, I know your lives all revolve around my blog posts. 😛 The writing bug hasn’t really hit me lately, but today, I’m breaking my radio silence! (Insert applause here).
I just want to start with how amazing Fall is! Unfortunately, we can’t watch the leaves change color here in Penghu due to the fact that we only have plam trees and evergreens, but we can delight in the change in weather. I love Fall! The weather, the clothes, the upcoming holidays, the soups, the PUMPKIN, the opportunity to wear jeans to work and not sweat to death, everything! I’m using a lot of exclamation points here, but Fall is totally worth it!
To kick off Fall, I made pumpkin pie!!! This was my first time making pumpkin pie, and I have to say it was a success! Not like it’s that hard, but you’ve gotta enjoy the little things. I made three, which I thought was a little excessive, but then everyone wanted to try some, so it went pretty fast saving Nick and I from pumpkin coma (it’s a real thing). We followed up by making Flautas for a bunch of the foreigners in Penghu. Everyone loved them! That’s another great thing about Fall, we can cook and not sweat to death (as you can see, summers here are pretty brutal without air conditioning).
Fall has already brought about many adventures in cooking, and as you know, we LOVE adventures! Another recent adventure of ours is dog sitting two dogs for a friend for a month. We love having dogs! Nick was a little skeptical at first, but the dogs worked their magic and now he LOVES them! They add so much fun and excitement to our lives! The say people with animals are happier, and while I haven’t done any kind of studies, I agree with them. It’s a constant source of entertainment!
So there you have it, The recent happenings in our exciting life! (Impressive, huh?) As soon as I remember to bring the camera to school with me, I’ll write some more about our summer adventures, but if you know me, my memory isn’t my best asset, so it still might be awhile. *sigh*
