My first pumpkin dish of the season...
Pumpkin Pie Cake!
This turned out to be really good. It's a thin layer of pumpkin pie filling on the bottom and a crunchy, cakey, streusel-like top. It really is a mix between a pie and a cake. Very good.
Now to package it up and send it off to San Diego.
Also on the crochet front, I added six more rows to my Big Yellow Taxi Blanket while watching baseball last night. I keep crocheting on it, but it doesn't seem to get any bigger. I know it does, but it's hard to see at this point. There's still a long way to go.
The Captain has spent the last few days working in the backyard. He cut and installed this wood trim along the hedges. It looks good. Will be even better when the grass fills in next year.
These are the stones that were stacked along the hedges. Not sure what he's going to do with them yet, but it's something back in this corner of the yard. (I just typed yarn instead of yard and had to fix it. Ha!)
While moving all the stones, he displaced a bunch of geckos from their homes. I guess they'll set up house in the new habitat he creates with the stone.
Fletch was playing King of the Mountain last night.
He stayed up there for the longest time just looking around.
He reminded me of a billy goat.
I made some dip yesterday so we'd have some munchies for the race today. These brown rice Triscuits with sea salt and black pepper are good!
This was originally supposed to be filling for some tortilla roll-ups, but it was so good with the Triscuits I decided not to make the roll-ups and use it as dip instead. The ingredients are: 1 pkg cream cheese, 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar, 1 small can chopped black olives, 1 Tbsp dried onion flakes, 1 tsp garlic powder, 4 Tbsp diced jalapeno (from a jar).
