Pumpkin roll dessert....

The public schools were out today for an in service which meant Kendall and I hung out together until Clayton got out of preschool. We then met the play group at the bowling alley. The bowling alley lost partial power so we left and went out for ice cream. It was sort of a crazy day but ended nicely for me with a scoop of chocolate almond ice cream on a sugar cone.

I'm hosting play group tomorrow (yikes! I have got to clean this house!), but did manage to make a new dessert that I've been looking for an excuse so I could make it.

Pictured above is the cake. It is really thin and I am spreading cream cheese frosting on it. Below is the finished dessert. It is called a pumpkin roll. I can't wait to taste it. I don't know why, but this year I have a hankering for pumpkin flavored desserts.

I found this dessert in my Southern Living cook book. There are pecans in the batter and then you roll it up as soon as it comes out of the oven. The white stuff is powered sugar.

I have another picture from this evening:

I can only imagine what is going through each animal's head.
Lilly: Dang door.
Buddy: Thank goodness for that door.
