You Know What You Folks Need

Really !

I know what you need.

I got me a jar of it this afternoon.

Wanna see ?

That's right, marshmallow fluff.

And no, I was not making fudge, or rice krispy treats, or even whoopie pies.

Nope, I went for the instant gratification

A fluffernutter

white bread+peanut butter+fluff+white bread= : )

It's Pumpkin Time !

Time for the kids to carve some scary pumpkins again.
you know what that means to me ?
Some good pumpkin butter,
just like apple butter, and easy to make

After the kids clean the guts and seed out of the pumpkins, take a spoon and scrape the inner walls to get as much meat as you can. This will not only reward you with precious butter, but make the carving easy for the kids. The recipe has never been written for me, but I have used 1/2 cup cider to 1 cup pumpkin in a crock pot on low for 10 hours/overnight. I had 5 cups of pumpkin when I was done scraping.
I add cinnamon and allspice to taste, and with this batch, I did add 1/4 cup splenda

Nothing better on a piece of toast in the morning, and good with peanut butter too !

Thank You Sheetz

I have been on the road doing some political work in my area the past few days, and I have to say, I have had a lot of coffee.
Today, the weather turned cold and rain set in, and a hot cup of coffee turned into a necessity.
I have come to realize that I am not a big fan of the 7-11 coffee.
I have found that fast food places serve coffee that has a burnt taste.
Many of the Quick Marts, and Stop In's that I tried had coffee in a thermos that was either cold, or just plain weak

Thank God for Sheetz

I found 3 separate locations on my route today, and every stop I made I got a great cup.
The half & half dispenser was full, and they had splenda, my favorite sweetener.
After my volunteer obligations were done, I made a stop back in to Sheetz for some chili mac, and in the morning, I am going out of my way to get my first cup of coffee there.
I am hooked
