Labor Day Weekend is Here!

Labor Day weekend is almost here, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during their much-needed break from work. Good thing there’s plenty of options on how to spend your weekend!

Looking to do something a little different to do? There’s the Asian Garden Mall. Plenty of shopping for any taste, plus so much good food that pleases everyone from the safe to the adventurous when it comes to eating Asian cuisine. Or you could be the type that just wants to keep it calm and lounge on the beach, which is just a short drive away! Sunset Beach is absolutely beautiful and watching the amazing sunsets it got its namesake from would be a great way to finish off your holiday weekend.

From all of us here at Pointe Pacific Living Apartments, whatever you choose to do, we wish you a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!

Westminster Holidays: Lemon Maple Squash Recipe

Mashed potatoes get all the glory during Thanksgiving, but if you are looking to mix things up and try something new, we have a wonderful Lemon Maple Squash recipe from the cooking experts at the Food Network. The side dish is a must-try food and will help add a bit of variety to your holiday meal. Here are the simple directions. Have a happy Thanksgiving!


Directions


Chop 4 pounds butternut squash into squares while removing the seeds. Put the squash cut-side up on a large sheet pan. Next mix ⅓ of a cup maple syrup, 1/3 cup of water, juice from a medium sized lemon, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and salt & pepper (just a pinch).

Next, pour the mix on top of the squash and add 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake everything for roughly 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After, flip the squash and let it bake until caramelized (usually about another 25 minutes).
