I am back in this first day of autumn.
Autumn which is arrived properly: light rain, orange leaves, cold weather good to wear a jacket.
I am so happy with this season!
Unluckly the time for blog is still non- existent and because of it I set aside the long post with travel suggestions and only rush for recipe ones because I have so many to post and because they are quicker to write.
We spent another whole week- end at home, on the couch.
Mainly because we are saving energy for the next weeks, when school, rugby and many other things will start again after the summer break but also because the weather was rainy and we were too lazy to plan anything but what to see on Netflix.
We are back from holidays and we yet don’t feel like we have ever been.
Lot of work, lot of rush; after month without a home fitness chance I decided to give in with gym: five days a week of course or it doesn’t work.
I AM DEAD.
I didin’t have the chance to cook a lot after our return, only a dessert for a family meal last sunday.
I took the recipe from a magazine and it turned out… AWFUL.
Since husband studies as bartender ( for fun only!) we love having a cocktail or two in the week ends.
To celebrate the start of our summer holidays we organized a mexican dinner with a friend to eat food paired with mojitos and other nice cocktails.
Yesterday I had my parents in law and my sister in law plus family at home for lunch.
So happy because nothing beats the joy of cooking, cooking, cooking then eat all together!
As always in these occasions I try to to test the more new recipes I can: it was quite hot on Friday ( about 104° F) but I kept the oven on the whole afternoon and produced a mint/ eggplant plum cake, a pecan pie and a chocolate cheesecake.
