Tasty Tuesday

              Hello October, and to more pumpkin recipes!!! I just love this month, it's so full of wonder, and boy I did wonder if we would have a pretty fall this year with the drought, but the trees are beginning to turn and fall and all is right with the world, once again!!  I only wish my Internet provider would get on board, I was without service for 5 days, and it's a good thing it came back on yesterday, or no telling what I'd get into, just wait till you see what I painted with chalkboard paint!! lol
        Ok, back to this post....I've been stocking up on canned pumpkin, just in case there's a run on it, with the high price of real pumpkins this year, another drought stricken crop, the canned variety might be in high demand?  I needed some comfort food while my Internet went dark for those days, and without Pinterest too, I was forced to clean out my recipe drawer, and look what I found!
