Our 1st Thanksgiving

Our 1st Thanksgiving!
...ALONE =( 

We were going to go up to Maryland again but then we realized it was just too much driving for the moment. We were up there only a week ago anyway and that 12 hour drive is not a joke! Alone, yes but we had fun cooking and bickering all day. I also was able to dye my hair in the meantime haha.

Apple Strudel Pancakes *deliiiiicious!*
I thought I'd be romantic for myself. That heart shaped pancake was made by me FOR me. O yeah.

Mr. & Mrs. Clunie

Hi everyone! I've been out of state catching up with old friends, going to a wedding, saying hello to my new baby niece, then showing my city to a friend after I got back! I've been running all over place preparing for thanksgiving and planning for black friday too while working. I'm actually super excited about that, I just hope I actually DO get up at 5 and run out the door. Speaking of out the door, that's exactly where my diet and workout plan went once I hit NC. My friends took me to Red Robin, Cheesecake Factory, Red Bowl, etc. I didn't care I just wanted to have fun haha! Here are some pics from my pumpkin's best friend's fall inspired wedding :) ! His family is from Jamaica and my goodness can his momma cook!! The house was full of people and I stayed with them. It reminded me of Bengali weddings and I loooved it and felt so welcomed and close to home. They are the sweetest!!

FOOD | Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin season! After we carved our pumpkin into a spooky guy (which is now a shriveled up angry gran pa) I made use of all the left over pumpkin bits. I've never made roasted pumpkin seeds let alone ate them before! It was fun to do and super easy. I love spicy food and this is a great healthy snack to munch on. I was told you only crack it open and eat the seed that's inside but I end up chewing up the whole thing haha. There are many variations and every way is tasty even if roasted with just salt and pepper. You can roast them on high for a shorter period of time like mine or roast them for a 45 mins to an hour at 350 degrees. Just don't let them burn so check on them from time to time. Here's my recipe below!
