pre-thanksgiving dinner!

Last night, a bunch of us girls got together for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner. It was so good!  Everyone is a chef at heart.  :)  We were all super stuffed by the end and had plenty of leftovers to go around.

One of the exciting, new Thanksgiving treats we tasted was Kyla's Pumpkin Crisp.'s the receipe.

1 can pumpkin (16 oz)
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
1.5 C sugar
3 eggs
4 t. pumpkin spice
**Mix all these ingredients together and pour into a 9x13 pan.  Then drizzle the following ingredients on top.**
1 box of yellow cake mix (use less if you'd like)
1 C butter (melt and drizzle over the cake mix...again use less if you'd like)

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes! 

For someone who doesn't even like pumpkin things very much, this was amazing!  It didn't even taste much like pumpkin!  Thanks, Kyla for sharing such a yummy treat!

This was the perfect way to kick off the holiday's.  What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
