Thursday already....

Yesterday was a good day! Accomplished alot around the house, dr's appointment went very well, all is good. Today is a sew day, bought new fabric yesterday (like I really need to "buy" more fabric, really should be "shopping" in my garage LOL) for another deli lunch tote, they are so cute and so simple, sometimes I need something that sews up quickly, especially after all the time it has taken to finish the halloween is done! Will post a photo tonight so come back and check it out.
Nicholas is supposed to have preschool today but he's having a tough time listening to the teachers and had an episode of spitting on Tuesday...yikes what to do?? I'm going to take him but I might just stay today and observe. He is my busy boy, always into something, I think he looks for mischief :-)
Time to feed the kids. Speaking of is a recipe for Pumpkin Bars that I received from a friend who is an excellent baker! ENJOY....thank you Gail and Margit!! Two of my "silly" friends.

Pumpkin Bars
2 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon -- ground
1 teaspoon Nutmeg -- ground1/2 teaspoon Cloves -- ground
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Vegetable Oil
16 ounces Pumpkin, canned
4 medium Eggs

2 cups Powdered Sugar
1/3 cup Butter or Margarine -- softened
1 package Cream Cheese -- (3 oz.), softened
1 tablespoon Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan. In large bowl, Blend all bar ingredients at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at Medium speed. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 Minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.In small bowl, combine frosting ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread over Cooled bars.
(You can successfully freeze these bars by allowing them to completely cool, Then placing them inside zip baggies, then removing all of the air inside the Baggies, using a drinking straw to suck it out. They are great to freeze in Small baggies for individual servings, but can also be frozen in large baggies For larger groups.)
