Yesterday I went to my friend Javier’s apartment to celebrate Thanksgiving. We had a lot of fun bringing dishes from our homes and exercising the food away with a Kinect afterwards. For my contribution to the meal I brought a simple pasta salda and some polvorones.
I stole the pasta salad idea from the bf. It’s really simple:
-Cook any pasta you like
-Strain and mix your favorite dressing (I chose Italian dressing)
-Put it in the fridge overnight
-I also added some basil and chives from our garden
The second thing I brought were some polvorones. They are sugar cookies from Puerto Rico (and many places in latinamerica) and are flavored like almonds. That recipe I linked to has some rum, but I make mine rum-free. 😉
I made around 40 and managed to come back home with 5 !
Today I decided to get rid of that pumpkin that had been sitting on my windowsill all fall.
I made some roasted pumpkin seeds….which I hated and proceeded to throw away 😦 They looked delicious but I was disappointed (I forgot to take a pic of the finished product).
With the rest of the pumpkin I decided to make a puree to use for later. I went crazy boiling an obscene amount of pumpkin.
In the end I had a ziploc bag of puree….A little less than i thought I would have but still quite a lot for myself.
I think I’ll use it for muffins or cupcakes later on….right now my tiny apartment smells like pumpkin and Im quite tired of them. 🙂
