Its Better Than Pumpkin Pie

Every time we have made this to take somewhere, people want the recipie. I thought I would post it on the internet so everyone could find it:

1 29oz can pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1 12oz can evap milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1 box yellow cake mix (2 layer size)
1/2 cup-1 cup butter/margarine (salted)
1 cup-2 cups chopped pecans

Mix pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, evap milk, and spices until smooth
Pour into 13×9 pan
Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly across the top and pat down (gently)
Melt butter and drizzle over the cake mix to lightly coat
Sprinkle pecans evenly across the buttered surface
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes (or until lightly browned and set)
The pumpkin part on the bottom should be the consistency of pumpkin pie and the top layer should be a rich crust as the butter fused the pecans into the cake mix.
Let cool before serving and store in the fridge:)

Wal Mart

Last night while traveling, I had to stop at Wal Mart to buy some new windshield wipers.  I was talking to the checkout lady and she mentioned that Wal Mart would be open all day on Thanksgiving.  Can you believe it?!  They are making a store full of employees work just so a handfull of people can go shopping.  Craziness!!


For those of you wondering why I quit posting about the OSU/Michigan game…Cyndi came home and needed to use the laptop.  So, I ended up and didn't get to blog the last quarter of the game  🙁

We are Marshall

Just saw a preview for the new We are…Marshall movie.  I'll probably wait to see it on video.  Even though I went to Marshall, I think Huntington (and the school) need to get over the plane crash.

By the way…that cheer (We are…Marshall) didn't start until I was at Marshall in the late 90s.

OSU Score

6:11 left in 2nd quarter.

OSU just scored another td and 1 extra point. 

OSU 21

You should hear all the crazies in the "shoe" go wild.  (Why would you want to go somewhere that stinks?  I'd come up with a new nickname for my stadium if I were the people in Ohio.)
