So, this past weekend I threw a little Halloween party for some friends! It turned out really nice and we all had SO much fun!
It was a cute, festive little gathering. I had it at my house and entertained Dan, Casey & her boyfriend, George and a few girl friends. My parents hung out with us for the night too, which was fun! I made an assortment of Halloween themed foods and drinks and my friend Gianna brought cupcake flavored vodka (yes, CUPCAKE). The vodka was delicious, however, my body is so not used to the combination of sugar+alcohol overload so by the end of the night I was suffering from a pretty bad tummy ache :( which continued into the next morning. So, Saturday night was the my first and last experience with cake vodka. Thanks, but no thanks.
|well, it seemed like a good idea!|

Harvest Quinoa - Serves 12
- 1 cup quinoa
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 dried cherries (no sugar added)
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp salt
This recipe makes SO MUCH!!!!!! Another reason why I think it would be perfect for Thanksgiving :)
All in all, it was a fun lil get together with some of the best company, good food & maybe too many drinks! All I know is as usual, Gianna and I totally went to town on the desserts........see all that candy corn? Gone. And I wonder why my stomach was hurting!
