Pumpkin Dump Cake

From my Facebook Friend, Noëlle Rábago Boesenberg.

I made it to bring to Sacramento on Halloween for moving day. Very easy. Smells wonderful! Delicious...

1 (29 oz.) large can pumpkin

1 (13 oz.) can evaporated milk

3 eggs

1 cup sugar (ok to use less if you want)

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1 box yellow cake mix

1 cup chopped pecans

1 ½ sticks butter (melted)

Mix together pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, spices. Beat well. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 inch glass pan.

Sprinkle cake mix over pumpkin mixture, then sprinkle on the pecans.

Pour melted butter over the whole thing.

Bake 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch closely at end. It burns easily.

Serves 12-15.

Scarf for Clifford, the big red dog.

I was visiting in Sacramento.
little 6 year old granddaughter wanted a scarf for red stuffed Clifford. I told her I had yarn but no knitting needles. Very sad Nonna. Very sad little girl. Can't disappoint my little girl! :-(
Now what?
Son-in-law (daddy) overheard and asked what knitting needles look like?
"Sticks with points on the ends," I told him.
"Hmmm," he said. And went to the kitchen. He returned seconds later with a set of chopsticks.
Clifford is getting a scarf. :-)
happy little girl.
ingenious son-in-law
Now she wants me to make him a shirt! That's going to be another story...
The end.
