~An Anniversary Celebration & Dessert~

My friend JoAnn attended a Garden Club meeting, one evening last week, and e-mailed, the next day, about a dessert that was served. I baked it and did a little taste test while it was still warm. It's every bit as good as JoAnn said. I'm putting the recipe in my favorite desserts file.
1-box yellow cake mix
1-large can pumpkin pie mix
1-8oz can evaporated milk
1-stick butter (melted)
2-small pkgs. pecan halves
Mix pumpkin pie mix with eggs and evaporated milk. Pour into large baking dish, crumble dry cake mix over the top, drizzle with melted butter, garnish with pecan halves.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven, until brown. Approximately 45 minutes.
Easy recipe that reminds me of dump cakes. This may well be a pumpkin dump cake. Some of you might have already tried this dessert. Whatever it's called, enjoy!
I sprinkled a small amount of powdered sugar over my sample. I believe a little whipped cream might be good, with this dessert, too.

~25th Anniversary Celebration~
November 5th marks our 25th wedding anniversary. We are planning a little get away. We will be returning to one of our favorite places, after a three year absence. I know some of you know this place and know why it is so very special to us.

Our life together and marriage, the second time around for each of us, began when we were introduced, in the late fall of 1982, by a mutual friend. A year later we were married. We are not only husband and wife, but best friends. It's been a very interesting 25 years. Life is good!
The photos of our getaway place were taken during our stay there in November 2005.

The posts that have published this week are all scheduled posts. I like this option, so I put together several.
Look for a "ghostly" post, Monday.
