first post~~~~~

So, here I am, recovering from a broken hip. Might I just say this is the worst thing I have ever done!!! A word of advice~ DO NOT break your hip!!!! I think I am going to post a recipe a day. I think I will because I miss my kitchen so much! I cannot get into my kitchen at all. The wheelchair is too big, and because I cannot hop on crutches, it is a zone I cannot enter. My husband, Rick~ and my 22 year old son, Cody, are doing a wonderful job of keeping me fed and watered, but I miss just browsing in the refrigerator or cabinets! I guess I need to add that until today I wasn't sure I was going to recover. Today I am fairly certain I will, a great improvement!!! I am going to be a Grandma for the very first time in a couple of months~such a joy!!!! So, in planning for Theo's (my Grandson's name) baby shower, here's a recipe for an "autumn" dip!

  • 2 cups pumpkin
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

The How To:

Cream together pumpkin and cream cheese. Add in all other ingredients until well blended. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with gingersnaps and graham crackers.

I am defiantly. going to make this for Jolene's shower which will be some time in November.(Jolene is the Goddess that is granting me my first Grandchild, with a little help from Bob, my oldest son!)



  1. You will be the best grandma ever cooking like that!

  2. I don't think I get Chexmix here but I hope you have fun with the game!
