Busy as a bee, and sorry for another late post. So we were invited at my friend’s place for Thanksgiving, and she asked me to cook the turkey since I do that every year. Turkey was in the oven at 5:30 am, had to cook it early because it takes about 6 hours. We arrived at my friend’s apartment around 1pm, I met her cousins, aunt and uncle, they were very nice people. We had fun and my kids enjoyed it too. We ate so much we seemed drugged from food lol of course that didn’t stop us from munching later on.
My Turkey, and I have to say everyone said it was delicious, there were no leftovers 😀
Been busy for the past few days so I wasn’t able to update soon. Kids had a whole week of no school for the Eid holiday so we decided to go to Atlantic City for a change. We stayed at the Taj Mahal Trump Hotel and it was a very nice place. Took the kids to the aquarium, and after that we went to the beach. It was cold so we didn’t stay long but smelling the fresh ocean air was a nice treat. Kinda reminded back home and our beach house, yea I do miss it sometimes. Too bad most of the stores were closed on the Boardwalk but we enjoyed the walk.
Even though it was cold out tonight I had fun trick or treating with my kids. Of course they were more excited, I’d be if I had all that candy 🙂 We didn’t stay out too long, just about an hour or so because Alethea got tired and it got colder. We made it home just in time to see the other kids in our neighborhood trick or treating and they looked adorable, my kids had fun giving out candies too
Went over to my friend with my kids to carve some pumpkins for Halloween, kids had fun even tho my son hated getting dirty but we did a pretty good job. Can’t wait to start trick and treating with my kids, my son is going as Superman and baby girl as a princess 🙂 they gonna look cute.

Went to my friend’s 30th birthday party last night, had loads of fun. She wanted me to cook a Kuwaiti dish, cinnamon chicken with rice and tomato sauce (machboos), and also meat lasagna. I kinda screwed up the rice but at the end it turned out well, never cooked for 15 plus people before. I literally spent 4 hours cooking and by the time I got done I was exhausted.
