Another month has come to an end and soon it's socially acceptable to bake Christmas cookies, make holiday plans, and decorate ones home with lights. It still feels like fall (probably cause it still is fall), so I'm probably waiting until the fields are covered with snow and I can smoke my breath before getting excited about the holiday season. To be honest, that could be any day now.
In the meantime, I'm going to take a break from the daily grind, jump on a plane to visit a dear friend, say "Buenas tardes!", and have a good time. Should you have any recommendations for places to visit or eat (mostly eat) in and around the Costa del Sol as well as helpful phrases in Spanish, feel free to leave a comment below or send me a note. Also, I still haven't figured out my holiday read... Any favorites?
Wishing you all a spooky Halloween!!

» I finally got my hands on Kimberley Hasselbrink's Vibrant Food. This book is a gem! I've already made multiple recipes, such as the candied ginger granola. According to my mom, this is the best granola I've made in all these years. And believe me, I've made many.
