Light and airy choux pastry buns filled with light pumpkin whipped cream and topped with dulce de leche. Delicious sweet clouds of joy. A very flavorful dessert!Aren’t you glad it’s September already? I’m doing my happy dance because I can officially cook or create something with pumpkin. I have actually finished two big cans of pumpkins during the Labor Day’s weekend and am excited to create something fun this month. September is also a big month since I added more clients to my list. It’s a good sign when you get lots of traffic at work, but it also means losing that flexibility in blogging.
Today we’re celebrating National Grandparents Day. I have so little memories about my grandparents from both sides. One of my grandfather passed away years before I was born and the other one passed away when I was ten. My grandmother passed away when I have moved to the U.S. I remember planning to visit her, after thirteen years living abroad, but sadly, she passed away few months before I went back to Indonesia. It was shocking.
Though I had little memories with them, I remembered how they spoiled their grandchildren so much. We visited them every weekend and they always had something for everyone of us. From candies to snacks to surprises, they had prepared everything.
Both of my grandmothers were sweet teeth, though one of them also cook delicious food and enjoyed gardening so much. And I just want to dedicate today’s post to all grandparents, including my mom. Thanks for giving me all the stuffs Mom and Dad won’t let me have!
