Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Hope you had a great one!
We don’t celebrate it where we’re from (South Africa) and nor does it get celebrated where we’re currently living (Dubai). So it was just a regular Thursday around these parts.
Nonetheless I definitely enjoyed doing some pumpkin recipes this month in honor of both fall season and Thanksgiving since many who read this blog are based in the USA. I most especially enjoyed the Pumpkin Pie. What an awesome dessert! I’m definitely a fan. And pumpkin pie spice? Genius!
I’m definitely going to make these things a lot more in future.
So let’s see what we did in November.
1. Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Cups // 2. Mango Smoothie // 3. Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe // 4. Vegan Pie Crust with Coconut Oil // 5. Vegan Pumpkin Pie // 6. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie // 7. Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes // 8. Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes //
Wow, everything was on the sweet side this month! Well no worries, we have some nice savory ones for you coming up. My favorites this month were the pumpkin pie and the carrot cake cupcakes. You?
COMING UP IN DECEMBER
Well I do have my eye on possibly making a trifle pudding for Christmas! Trifle pudding is big in South Africa. It’s the traditional pudding usually served at Christmas time.
But we’ll have to see about that one, what I definitely DO have in store for you is these goodies!
WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
We love comedy and gave ‘Chewing Gum’ on Netflix a go. It’s good. Definitely funny, but leans towards gross a bit often for me. But still, we’ll definitely watch season 2 when it comes out!
Then we’ve been watching ‘Westworld’, which is awfully complicated (or maybe that’s just me), and ‘Jane the Virgin’ which I LOVE. And new comedy ‘American Housewife’ is also right up my street. Love Katy Mixon, she is too fab.
What are you watching? Anything you recommend?
WHAT WE’RE READING
I was given a kindle for my 40th birthday! Soooo excited! Will soon have so much to read! I am still busy with some paper books for now, but look forward to going (more) digital. Not sure I will ever give up on paper books, just love buying them and having them, but super excited to have this option too! Will definitely save me heaps on shipping costs when I buy from Amazon!
I’m busy reading a book called ‘Rewire‘ about changing the wiring in your brain so that you can overcome bad habits and create new productive good habits. Wow, the human mind is fascinating.
Jaye has just got started on ‘Hearts in Atlantis‘ by Stephen King which is one of my favorite books.
THE KITTY CATS
The Kit Kats are strutting around the catwalk, doing their turns, looking fabulous!
I was saying to Jaye that no one knows how to enjoy themselves as much as cats. Happy cats are just sooooo happy. These guys have a full daily routine, between eating, cuddling, playing, sleeping, bird watching and lazing in the sun rays behind the curtains, they enjoy each moment to the fullest! They are always a good example to me of how to revel in the enjoyment of all the good moments of the day!
Hope you’ve had a good November and are enjoying the holiday season!
Lots of love!
