Monday Musings

We survived last weeks sugar high. Halloween was a success we managed to cover just our street and it was good enough for the boys to get an idea of trick-or-treating. Ray woke up at 7 am the next day thinking it’s going to be Halloween everyday and insisting on going trick-or-treating.  That took some explaining but I think he gets that Halloween is just once a year! JJ is still obsessed with all the Halloween nursery rhymes and keeps asking me to play “Punkin Halloween” (5 Little Pumpkins).

The weekend flew right before our eyes as we had spurs of pouring rain and then some sun.  A little snow in the higher altitude regions lead to a beautiful view of snow-capped mountains this got me all excited about the holidays and I started getting ideas of holiday décor for our home I have a post coming this week of some of my favorite Amazon deals.  I am way eager to get a tree up and start decorating but I’ll wait for another couple weeks. As for now…I want to dive into some recipe books and get some delicious recipes out before Thanksgiving!

Every year for the past couple years as tradition my husband and my sister both cook a thanksgiving turkey.  My husband loves to marinate his Turkey with our traditional spices he loves to give it a very traditional Pakistani taste.  My sister on the other hand cooks her Turkey with a classic American marination she has a special recipe she hasn’t shared but she does the whole shebang with mouth watering stuffing and cranberry sauce. Both Turkeys are devoured!!

I love to get into the Thanksgiving spirit by some holiday decor, kitchen essentials, and making sure the kids enjoy the holiday as well. My little Ray loves to help in the kitchen and so I’ve linked some of my favorite items for toddlers and kitchen must-haves for the food festivities found on Amazon! And if you’re a prime member on Amazon you can get free two day delivery which is amazing! Since becoming a prime member I’ve been so spoiled standard delivery at many retail stores takes 5-7 business days which seems like a lifetime away after you’ve reaped the benefits of being a Amazon Prime member!

Here is my roundup of Amazons must-haves for Thanksgiving (you can simply click on any item and purchase)…
