Almost Ready To Go

Two desserts baked and almost ready to go!

I’ve got my cheesecake baked and am just waiting for it to cool so I can put the topping on it.

And I’ve also got my pumpkin cake roll cooked and cooling. I don’t know what it is about “rolled” things, but I’ve always been so nervous that I was going to crack and/or ruin it.

So far, so good though! My cake is all rolled up and cooling off as we speak, ready and waiting to be filled with all sorts of delicious cream filling.

I really hope that this thing turns out as delicious as it smells. If it does, I am totally sharing it with you guys. I’m pretty sure the recipe came from my friend Heather’s mom, wayyyy back in the day. Actually, I’m pretty sure the recipe was given to my mom but since they don’t like pumpkin over there (crazies) I took the recipe when I moved out.

Can’t let a good pumpkin recipe go to waist, am I right?? Winking smile

My little baking buddy is usually out at my feet the entire time I’m baking, but he’s actually been laying low today…most likely because we left a blanket out and unfolded, and he’s allll about the blankets.

As far as eats for me go today, I’ve been doing the grazing thing quite a bit. Whenever I spend the day cooking/baking in the kitchen that tends to happen, but that’s fine by me. There’s been a few bites here and there of random snacks, but I did manage to snap a photo of my clementine.

And my more substantial snack…a pumpkin yogurt bowl made with plain Greek yogurt, pumpkin, unsweetened applesauce, bananas, raisins, and granola.

I feel like it’s been forever since I last had a yogurt bowl, but this really hit the spot.

Now’s it’s probably getting close to finishing up those desserts out in the kitchen, so I better get to it! Gosh I just love Thanksgiving and all of the delicious food that comes with it…and I also LOVE not worrying an ounce about eating it. Winking smile

    Courtney, if that is the pumpkin roll I think you are talking about, it will be amazing! I might have to call my mom up and tell her to make one asap!
