5 Spice Pistachios

So, tonight was the first night I made anything for Thanksgiving. I saw this on Eating Well dot com & thought it would be an ideal appetizer. Especially since Im feeding 4 men & myself. In my head, all men love nuts. [Meh heh heh.] This was a very quick prep; pretty much you throw them in the oven & go about your business.

There will be more recipes as I prepare Thanksgiving food. Some will not necessarily be low cal but, I figure that 90% are & any holiday recipes can be helpful.

This is my very first Thanksgiving that Ive prepared all the food myself. Ive taken on quite a task!
