Celebrating Chile and Fall Season

September means two things to me: Fall and '18'.

 I enjoy decorating for Fall and cooking with pumpkin. I have lived in this country for so many years that is now a part of the things I enjoy doing. You can check out what I have cooked using Pumpkin in the past Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Ravioli, my favorite White bean and Turkey Stew served in Pumpkin Bowls.

I just saw this recipe for Pumpkin French on Pinterest that I really want to try. What are you making with Pumpkin?

Pumpkin French Toast - Sounds amazing!!! 

 I also enjoy decorating for "18", Chile's National Holiday (like the Fourth to the US). That means, I make Chilean food, we make crafts related to Chile, and make handmade decorations using crochet for the holidays. My first decoration coming up is a banner made using the national colors: blue, white, and red. I also crocheted the letters to spell C-H-I-L-E. I still feel like the banner is missing something, so I'm still calling it a work in progress. But it's hanging in my living room and my daughter has learned how to spell Chile thanks to it. My son is learning to recognize more letters thanks to that banner being on the wall. It's a win-win for everyone. :-)

That's the latest going on here! 

Hope you are having a great week!
