I hate to be alone in the mornings. It’s boring. When I was a little girl, and wanted my brother to wake up and get crackin’ so that we could play a game or watch Saturday cartoons together, I would throw a couple of dog biscuits onto his bed and our two Cocker Spaniels would jump on top of him and run all over the bed looking for the treats. When he would emerge from his room, I would be sitting on the couch, pretending to look uninterested in his arrival, and I would try not to smile. Unfortunately, I have the worst Poker face known to man. The worst.
I am so very grateful. My family is healthy, I live in a country where I have a multitude of freedoms, and I, and those that I love, are safe, well fed, have a roof over our heads and have little to truly worry about. My hope would be that people everywhere could experience these things and as tomorrow approaches, I do know how very lucky I am and have so much to be thankful for.
Here are some recipes from posts past that might fit the bill for tomorrow.
Peace and love…Geni
Of course, Plain and Simple Pumpkin pie…
I was sixteen and running late for my first date with a boy whom I really liked and I made the cataclysmic mistake of telling my dad to “entertain” him for a few minutes. After I sprayed my last bit of Aqua Net onto my two inch high bangs, glossed over my lips and slipped on my “pumps”, I walked into our family room to find my dad, six foot three inches tall, and my date tap dancing on our wood floors while my dad whistled and sang, “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
If you are afraid to try something new with pumpkin for the sheer and utter fear that you will soon be addicted to yet one more pumpkin recipe, then run now while you still can. This recipe for these soft and fluffy pumpkin whoopie pies might totally take the cake (pun obviously intended), may be the big pumpkin Kahuna, and will in one bite convince you that perhaps pumpkin is the new chocolate!
