More pumpkin

Tuesday. Is it really? This week is so busy and my to-do list is ever so long and all I really want to do is sit back and enjoy life. I am taking a break from my sewing projects right now to blog and make pumpkin puree (the pumpkins are in the oven as we speak!). I am going to quickly finish this post, so I can go change and get to dinner out with the girls in my life group (something that we haven't done in awhile!).

Before I give you this amazing pumpkin recipe. . . what have you been making lately. . . please comment. . . I am curious.

Several weeks ago, I needed to come up with a super quick snack food/finger food for the Tuesday morning Bible Study I attend. This was my contribution. . . a yummy dip of pumpkin goodness paired with some crunchy, sweet apples. I only made a half batch, and it made just enough to fill my serving bowl. I will confess, my husband was a tad hesitant about me making this. . . he just didn't think it sounded good, but after one small taste, he was hooked. It seriously is like eating pumpkin pie. . . a really good pumpkin pie!

Harvest Pumpkin Dip

(This is the full batch, super easy to half)

1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can pumpkin
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Beat the above ingredients together and serve chilled. Super delish!

Enjoy everybody! I hope to be back tomorrow with another post. . . I have a lot of stuff to share (I have been busy!).

  1. Since you asked....I made the sour cream cranberry bars but using yogurt for the sour cream. They were good ...as good as can be with out chocolate. Then I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies using canola oil instead of margarine or butter. Those were exceptionally good. I also made the easiest soup ever, a chard and meatball soup that I think I found at a Rachel Ray site. Then of course I quilted a table runner, made a taggie for a friend's grandson and a secret for my grandson. I am have quilted a baby blanket and am now ready to bind it.


I love hearing your comments and feedback. . . It makes my day!!!
