For those in the US, how was your Thanksgiving day and Black Friday? Ours were pretty quiet and in fact we both had to work the day after the T-Day, which was a little bummer. At least I had a choice to work from home and it was only half day.
We didn’t like crowds so much so no Black Friday shopping either. We enjoyed our quiet T-Day and Black Friday.
Anyway, it’s Pumpkin season now!! I am not quite experience cooking with pumpkin but I couldn’t hold myself not to experiment with them. Since I am one lazy ass person, I rather bought canned pumpkin so I don’t have to cook/roast, carve and mash them myself. I like simplicity and practical.
Here’s a little snapshot what kind of pumpkin kitchen experiments I’ve been doing.
One of the recipe wasn’t created by me was the Pumpkin Pancakes. I adapted Diane’s Balance Bites recipe and halved it. And since I’m still on my Carb Nite Solution, I made 3 servings (3 medium pancakes) from half of her recipe and only ate 2 of them along with my other protein and fat breakfast today.
Here’s the nutrition breakdown for 1 serving (1 medium pancake)
We didn’t have any turkey on T-Day so to make it up, we had a roasted chicken on Friday instead! 🙂
I will post the other 2 recipes if they came out right! 😀
Have a great Weekend!
