4 more days and counting. Actually, it's 3 more days because you know everyone really starts celebrating on the 24th.
I've been busying myself with creating the yearly family calendar. This is a sneak peek of January's page.
Of course I need nourishment whilst doing all this crafting so I decided to try a new recipe that my friend Kristina gave me. Here's her recipe on her blog.It's a Gooey Pumpkin Cake and it is wonderfully delicious and a perfect fall dessert. Sure, today may be Winter Solstice but who's gonna nitpick about cake?
These are the ingredients.
I halved Kristina's recipe because there's only 2 of us. The full recipe makes a 9"x13" pan so I made mine in an 8"x8" pan.
Also, I should have blended the cream cheese with the pumpkin better than I did. In hindsight I should have used a mixer because my hand got too tired trying to mix it together. There's only so much a crafter's hands can do in a day. lol. But it was still fantastic! It's like a layer of yellow cake topped with a pumpkin cream cheese gooey goodness.
I have a personal theory that coffee is better in the afternoon than in the morning. When you need a little pickmeup during that afternoon drag, the savory sweet flavor of coffee with lots of milk and sweetener hits the spot. mmmm. a great accompaniment to a piece of Gooey Pumpkin Cake, too!!
