Lovely fall days

It’s finally starting to cool down a little in Louisiana. I actually had to wear capris jogging pants to run in the other day. Shocking!!

The pup has loved the cooler weather, maybe because she was born in November. Always, when it first turns chilly, she gets overly excited and runs playfully all over the yard. Now she has a much bigger yard to run in and cats to play with – even though they don’t play much with her. Misti and I had a puppy play date the other day, which made the Voo very excited – and very sleepy.

Isn't she absolutely precious? 
There’s nothing like sweet, cuddling puppy on a cool day.

Also, I finally got around to making pumpkin pie white hot chocolate this week. 

Notice the BLUE countertops...no more camo countertops for me, lol!!
I divided the recipe by four so I could make a single serving. Also learned that I think I would like a little less pumpkin puree. And I added the whipped cream just because. For those of you who don’t like pumpkin (aka Tara), I think just leaving the pumpkin out would still make this yummy. Our university’s coffee place has something called a Mayan Mocha where spices are added to the hot chocolate. It’s quite delectable, and I think using white chocolate would be even better.

Has anyone else been making fall yummy goodness?

You know it! Pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin bread...I'm about one slice away from turning orange from the beta carotene.

That pumpkin hot chocolate looks delicious. Have you posted the recipe? I have not been reading or blogging, but today is a new day. I actually posted and I am reading my favorite blogs like yours. :-) Your pup looks like a happy one after the "cool" walk.
