Smiles in a Box.

Would you just LOOK at the box of goodies that sweet Mrs. Meg sent to me, unexpectedly in the mail!?! Only some of the finest Kansas acorns, some fall goodies and THE cutest handmade onesie that I have ever seen!! :) Meg, I will have you know that you just had me grinning from ear to ear for the rest of the day...how in the world is it possible for someone I have never met to know just how to make my day? :) Thank you ever so much!! Doug even said after I showed him all the goodies..."Why can't we live closer to her?" :) I truly LOVED every little bit. :)
Acorns-from the left-A Virgina Acorn-A Kansas Acorn-A New Jersey Acorn--Who knew they could all be so different?
And here is a delish fall dessert that you have to go make right now!! Pumpkin pie bars...oooohh. You will LOVE them then walk around your house for the rest of the day breathing deeply and audibly saying "ahh" because it will make your whole house smell delish!

Get all these Goodies together:
1-1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) cold butter or margarine
1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
3 eggs
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

Then do all this:

HEAT oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; grease foil. Mix flour, 1/4 granulated sugar and brown sugar in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and nuts.

RESERVE 1 cup oat mixture; press remaining onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 min. Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar, eggs, pumpkin and spice with mixer until well blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.

BAKE 25 min.; cool 10 min. Use foil to transfer dessert from pan to wire rack; cool completely.


Then send me an email thanking me for making your fall day. :)

Loves to you all!! Have a great weekend!! :) xoxo

Pumpkin is my favourite veg. Roast with some fivespice on it, or perhaps honey, wedges baked in fry salt and parmesan, mash with too much butter and more parmesan, sweet yummy pumpkin pie, I think I will have another favourite way to cook pumpkin now. (we dont get many sweet pumpkin dishes here, but I LOVE them)
