6 months

Howdy folks!  Yes, I'm still here.  Saudades demais.  I made my first bolo de cenoura to eat while we are watching Brasil vs Chile today.  Recipe from Tudo Gostoso, using the blender (SO Brazilian) and vague directions (3 unidades de cenoura?  And what size is a xícara de chá?)  We are missing Brazil and friends a lot.  I've often thought about writing but, well....I've only had one mango since I've been back and it's not been so tasty.  We are transitioning, adapting, learning and figuring out how to live life here.  Beijos to everyone!


  1. Miss your posts. Funny, I just made a typical American-style carrot cake with cream cheese frosting the other day. But here I cannot call it a "Carrot cake" or people just look at me funny and tell me "no it isn't." lol Do keep us informed about any fun re-entry stories. and... Go Brasil!

    1. Hi Jim! I'm trying to figure out how to fit more writing in my life, so hopefully more posts to come!

  2. I liked the tips on the carrot cake, I'd like you to take a look
    On my site too, I made a simple and quick to make scone cake. Many thanks for the tips.
