Well, I have had a rather busy week, what with my little SUV breaking down, discovering it needs to be replaced (*sniffles*), and shopping for a brand-spanking-new vehicle. (Big shout out to my friend, Amy, who has been chauffering my stranded little behind all over, and to my father-in-law, who rescued me in the first place as I sat with blinking lights in front of the mausoleum during rush hour.)
Despite all of this, I have NOT been too busy for a new recipe. :-) I love pumpkin, but, as stated before, baking doesn't seem to be my calling or gift. That being the case, I wanted to make something pumpkiny but cold. And I found it: pumpkin pudding. I started with some general suggestions I found online, but once I tested it things started to get a little ad-libbed.
What you will need:
1 can of pumpkin
1 box of vanilla pudding mix
pumpkin pie spice
milk (evaporated or regular -- I used 2% because, well, I have no car and can't go to the store.)
What I also used:
Pampered Chef's Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle
Mix the pudding, pumpkin, and 2 cups of milk together, along with some pumpkin pie spice to taste. If you are using additional ingredients, add them to taste, too.
My personal assistant and I agreed that it was certainly a delicious recipe, and, what's more, SUPER easy!! Love it!

Plan for the evening: grab a blanket, snuggle into a comfy deck chair, and eat pumpkin pudding!
