I am back....it's been awhile and so much has happened! I think my mind is just too overwhelmed to recall all of it, so, I might just start from TODAY!

FIRST OF ALL-----can someone PLEASE tell me how to get the music to be deleted from my rock you slide show? I don't know about you, but, I'm sick of that song now! LOL
I hope to add a playlist soon.

Before I get too far ahead of myself, I have wanted to put this recipe up!
Hubby and I LOVED it! And, I will be making it again for sure! As we were eating it, I asked hubby how long it had been since we had anything with that MAPLE taste! Awesome!
Pumpkin Maple Turnover

Pumpkin and Maple Turnover

Makes: 8 servings

1 pie crust (from box or homemade--I used a Jiffy Pie Crust mis, I LOVE those!!!)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon maple flavor
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Dash salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon maple flavor
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted*

1 . Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll crust on ungreased large cookie sheet. In medium bowl, mix pumpkin, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon maple flavor, the pumpkin pie spice and salt until smooth.

2 . Spread pumpkin mixture over half of pie crust to within 3/4 inch of edge. Brush edge with water; fold crust over filling. Carefully move turnover to center of cookie sheet. With fork, press edge to seal; prick top several times.
3 . Bake 23 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

4 . In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon maple flavor and the milk until smooth and desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm turnover. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm or cool.

I'm at home for a few days...I've been back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth!!! Each time I come home, I have to just drag myself here. I hate coming home alone. When I do get here (which is now a 3+ hour drive, since we moved the trailer) I'm happy to be in my own home. I stay real busy and that helps. We can't get internet connection on the laptop in the trailer, so, I'd have to go sit along the side of the road to pick up my emails and do any AVON stuff I needed to do. I just hate the idea of paying another $60 a month for an aircard, when we already pay so stinkin' much for all the technology stuffs! Home phone, satelitte, internet package and then, the cell phones. UGH I wish it was easier and cheaper!!! Maybe hubby and I will decide to do that for our Christmas gift to each other---but, then, the 2 year contract sucks, too!

Found out hubby will be working Thanksgiving..that's a first. But, all is well, since we had no plans, anyway. They are trying to get the mine up and going to be producing copper from the new location by December 1st. They gave them a deal they can't refuse. Double time PLUS holiday pay PLUS double per diem! $1050 for one day, can't turn that down. Plus, they will get that for the other 3 days--Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The only catch is they can't miss a day for 12 days or be late~!
I just hope FRED doens't have a temper tamprum! Hubby's had a few ittle things with him, here and there, so, I just hope he earns his money that week! I'm still trying to convince hubby he needs a new truck and keep FRED for backup...wish me luck! He'll need the tax deduction by next year for sure, tho!

Well, I have more to say, but, I gotta get off here and go get a girl hired for AVON. Hope to be able to post more later.

count your blessings....
