And the days go by

Here it is, October 26th already.  October is a busy month for us.  Anniversaries, birthdays, more birthdays, Halloween, Reformation, you name it, it seems to happen in October. 

So today, quick before the month is over, I have decided to make a few pumpkin flavored things. I have also decided to share them with you, since pumpkin season is just beginning.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Here is the original recipe I found.

1 16 oz container Cool Whip, thawed
1 5 oz (small box) vanilla pudding mix
1 15oz can pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix all together and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with graham crackers.

Here is what I actually did.

1 16oz Cool Whip, not quite thawed well enough to mix well
1 5oz box pumpkin pie flavored pudding mix
1 cup pumpkin because I had used the other half of the can for something else
And I forgot the pumpkin pie spice.

I am serving mine with apple slices. Wish me luck!

I also made these bars for the pot luck tomorrow.  Light and Spicy Pumpkin Bars but I am sure I will frost them with real cream cheese frosting and not the light version that came with the recipe.

One other pumpkin thing that I highly recommend. The Pumpkin Pie Martini. Rumchata, pumpkin pie vodka, and ice.  Did I mention I highly recommend it?? 

I was too busy to bake and pumpkins for pies but maybe when November 8th is over with, I can add that back to my list!  What is your favorite pumpkin recipe?  I would love for you to share!

Throw back to Halloween 2010

Hello! You been busy or something??

Have you got more specifics for the Rumchata/pumpkin concoction or just mix rumchata with a little sprinkling of the other stuff so that you can call it pumpkin??

AND look at all those cute cupcakes and cowboys in that picture. I kinda think those big girls are pretty cute too.

Pumpkin Pie martini?!?! Sign me up! We love good ol' fashioned pumpkin bars with a think layer of cream cheese frosting this time of year. Yum! I should probably give the light version a shot.
