Jack O Lantern

This is our first time making one. We were at Bates Nut Farm a few days back, and pumpkin cost $6 each. Yup, for something that you'd carve, leave it at the lawn and thrown after Halloween. Uh-uh, I'm just there for the pictures then.

2 days after, we headed to Target to buy stuff. Low and behold, pumpkins were $1.50 each. I can deal with that.

Happy Halloween @happymommyadi #lovehalloween #halloween #playtime #happy
Happy's first Jack O'lantern was a successful joint project of me and @breehive... Pahirap ng pahirap request ha!

Anna and Happy (for only 5 minutes) went on carving the thing. It turned out great.

Same day, I decided to make pork buns (siopao asado). That one turned out great too. Posted it on Facebook and for some reason, a lot of people did ask for the recipe. What's up with that? It was tedious to make, but readily available on any Asian grocery or Filipino fast food chains.

My very first pork asado #siopao turned quite good according to my fans  all 18 mini bums going, going gone! @breehive #happy #adi #mommyinlove
What's for lunch?: Homemade pork buns (siopao asado) @happymommyadi #filipinocuisine #homecooking #foodie #foodporn

Maybe it's the fact that those sold on the supermarket are freakin' expensive like that $6 pumpkins huh? Plus it's better making your own, at least you know what's in it and not some unknown meat.
