It's all about pumpkins

We had another recipe night tonight. Let me tell you something about these ladies...give them a theme and it is AMAZING what they come up with to eat. Oh boy, did we feast. Our theme for the night was pumpkin. Anything Pumpkin. There were breads, cookies, cakes, desserts muffins, pies, bars
and not just one..but THREE different yummy soups.
These girlies can cook! I loved getting to try things that I have never had before. I loved hearing that these things really aren't that hard to make. I am now ready to spring the new pumpkin recipes on my fam!

I have to point out another great part of this night. This might be my favorite part of the night...that's saying a lot because I like me some food...
I love spending time with these guys!
I love talking to them. I love laughing with them. They are so much fun to be around.
I also enjoy a night out and the chance to not come home until after the kiddos are in bed..thank you Erik : )
Super fun Loni...thanks for hosting the night!
Here's what I brought. (It is pictured above next to the bowl of whipping cream in the 9x13 pan)
