Houston, We Have Snow...

So, I guess this means our Indian Summer is officially over, huh?
NOW I'm in the mood to decorate for Christmas.

For those of you who asked about my pumpkin pancake recipe...uh, I really don't HAVE one. I plopped a can of pumpkin into a bowl of Jiffy pancake mix, added water until it was the right consistency, then some allspice just for fun. I had to use a much lower temperature on the stove to get them cooked all the way through without burning the outside (thanks for the tip, Rachel!), and in hindsight, I probably should've only used 1/2 a can of pumpkin. I'm kind of an experimental chef...usually what I try works. Sometimes it doesn't. The Pumpkin Pancake Experiment went well, but I can tweak it and make it better next time, kwim? Um, does that help you at all? lol

I'm scrapping today, getting a few required pages knocked out so I can work on my folk art doll.....finally! My goal is to get her started tomorrow. Wish me luck! Hope your Monday is happy!

Okay this is my second attempt at posting a comment!

I love snow and you are so dang lucky to have it:0)
It always puts me in the mood to decorate for Christmas too!

I made Pumpkin muffins on Sat...1 butter cake mix, 1 can pumpkin, some pie spices and that is it! They were yummy!

For some reason my holiday spirit hasn't kicked in yet. That is so not like me! Could you send me some snow?

You and Rachel with your "just throw it together" recipes! They're kinda hard to follow :D

I am very intrigued at the thought of a fork doll? What's a fork doll, can't wait to see. I am freezing in my own house, it's so damp and cold. I despise cold weather- but it's a blessing for my son with MS. Hot weather is terrible for people with MS. So, I'm thankful for the cold for their sake. Personally, I'm heading to Hawaii the first chance I get :)I was working on some ink work to send out to Heather Bluhm and Nita, Cindy etc. and my fingers just don't work well in the cold.
