Tomb of Jahangir – Lahore, Pakistan

So basically, my trips to Pakistan consist of spending time with my family and eating amazing food. Since we go after many years and for short periods of time it’s hard to do too much sightseeing. However, we did manage to squeeze one day for it, in the city of Lahore. When our driver picked us up, he assumed we wanted to go to all the biggest shopping centers in the city. When we told him we weren’t interested in shopping and instead wanted to see some historic sites, he was shocked. I think mainly because that is what a lot of people like to do when they go to Pakistan, things are a bit cheaper. We saw four sites in one day (with 2 kids under the age of 4)! My family and I have a knack of squeezing too many things in one day! lol Our first stop…

Egg Salad Sandwiches

This is a continuation of recipes from the tea party I did a couple of months ago. I learned how to make egg salad sandwiches very early on in my life. I picked this recipe up from my aunt who taught us how to make them at summer camp. I always remembered eating hers and loving the taste. And when she showed us exactly how to make them, I couldn’t believe how easy they were! Ingredients: -5 hard boiled eggs -1/4 cup mayonnaise -1 medium sized cucumber, chopped (I prefer the Persian ones) -1/2 tsp paprika -salt & pepper to taste -bread of choice -extra cucumber slices for garnish (optional) Instructions: 1. Combine eggs, mayonnaise, cucumber, paprika, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. 2.Serve between slices of bread that you can either cut in half or like I did in cute little four squares. (To make them even cuter, you…

The Streets of Pakistan

As you can tell by the title of this post, I have finally started sorting through photos of my recent trip to Pakistan and I am so excited to share it all with you! This country, which my parents are from is one that is full of diverse cultures, a rich history and delicious food. Although I wasn’t born in Pakistan, I did move here when I was only 6 months old. I lived there for about 6 years in a town called Rabwah (now known as Chenab Nagar) which is located next to the River Chenab in the province of Punjab. The country itself is located in South Asia and is the 6th most populous in the world with over 197 million people! Getting to Chenab Nagar from the airport in Lahore is an experience in itself. Most of the highway is nicely paved, however as soon as you get…

DIY Flower Crown

In the spirit of spring and the fact that I love love LOVE flowers, I am going to show you how to make flower crowns! The first time I made this was for a party I did for a friend who was getting married a few years ago. And when I made it, it was a real struggle but then eventually I got the hang of it. I recently did another party for a friend and made these very spring inspired flower crowns! What you need: -Bouquet of flowers (one that includes filler flowers like baby’s breaths) -Floral Wire -Floral Tape -Wire Cutters -Scissors What you do: 1. Select the color combination you prefer 2. Cut the flowers, leaving about 1-2 inches of stem 3. Make little bunches of flowers and arrange them in a pattern you like so it will be easier to tape them on the wire when you are ready 4.…
