I guess I’m a follower.

I had no intention of making anything pumpkin until October.
I was certainly not going to buy canned pumpkin when I have them growing in the garden.

Trouble is…my plants are not ready, and everywhere you look

pumpkin recipes

what’s a girl to do

I needed to make something pumpkin.
I am also in need of a lunch box dessert for the week.
Those cookies from last week did not live to see Saturday.

My kids are not straight up pumpkin lovers, but with chocolate they’ll pretty much eat anything.
So…I get my pumpkin fix, and they get a dessert.

Good thing because mean mommy sent them to school with no desert today:)
