In a desperate attempt to channel the feelings of good old American fall, I started off today with a homemade pumpkin frappuccino and proceeded to bake pumpkin breads in several variations.

No new boots or comfy sweaters were in the cards for my attire, though, no matter how high Andy blasts the A/C. A raincoat would have been more useful. The seasons are a-changing here too. Rainy season has rolled around once again.

It’s better than the hot season, sure, but I’d still rather have crisp air and colorful leaves.

What are you fall favorites? (Especially things I can recreate from afar.)

    Getting all weepy and nostalgic for American fall has practically become an annual feature for my blog. I love living overseas but man, I really miss an American fall. I’m even considering making “fall scented play-dough” ostensibly for Will but we all know who it’s really for! I second the apple pie suggestion, as well as pecan pie, fall leaves, gourds, mugs of apple cider,…

    Hi Alexis! Our last post also did not have a “real” fall–though it was probably a bit closer than Benin. Can you get apples and great cinnamon there? Make yourself a great apple pie. And if the weather is too hot to eat it, just throw some of the pieces into a homemade vanilla ice cream and bam! You’ve got fall. Also carve any interesting gourds that you can find. Have fun! We missed pumpkin spice lattes when we were away too.
