September Memories

It’s the heavy rainy season here in Panamá. Where I live, it’s typical for it to rain every afternoon. In September it usually started at about 1pm and lasted 3 – 4 hours. The start time has gradually been pushed back later and now it starts raining at about 4pm. I actually enjoy the predictability of the weather here.

September was a pretty chill month, though lots happening behind the scenes as I was gearing up for my vacation month in October. That’s right, I’m on vacay!! You won’t see many posts here again until November because I’m traveling (photos to come!).

At the beginning of September, my boyfriend and I traveled to Bocas del Toro to pick up his parents and bring them back to Boquete (where we live). It was their first time in the Chiriqui mountains and my boyfriend’s dad’s first time in the Chiriqui province! They only stayed for 2 nights, but we really enjoyed having them here and were thrilled that they got to see a new part of Panamá.

My neighbor had two huge banana bunches come ripe at the same time, so he gifted us a HUGE bag full of ripe bananas. There must have been 40 or more, I swear. Well, that calls for some creative banana recipes! I ended up making 3 or 4 banana breads, banana cinnamon rolls, banana and apple cinnamon turnovers and homemade banana pudding. Delicious…….

Of course I had to add chocolate chips...

This was my first time making this turnover, and the first one turned out a bit messy. But still delicious!

Between both of our immediate families, we celebrate 6 birthdays in September (including mine and my boyfriend’s)! My boyfriend was actually in his hometown for his birthday, but we went out to a nice dinner and played a game of darts in Boquete for my birthday.

I almost won!!
