Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls (Secret Recipe Club)

Today is my last posting for the Secret Recipe Club.  They are disbanding which is sad.  I’ve enjoyed checking out other blogs.

This month I was selected to check out Ashley’s blog – Cheese Curds in Paradise.  I love the name of the blog.  Ashley lives in Wisconsin which is known for cheese.

I noticed that Ashley creates menu plans for the week so she knows what is going to be for dinner each week.

There was a couple of recipes that I wanted to try out like Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches, Bacon Pesto Spread, Pizza Muffins, and Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds.

I finally decided on pumpkin pie crescent rolls for this month’s recipe.  The Imaginative One loves pumpkin pie and crescent rolls.  I thought this would be a good way for him to have the best of both worlds.

The Wee One loved the pumpkin pie crescent rolls.  As soon as I got them out of the oven, he was standing there waiting to try one.

So far it’s been only the Wee One and I who have tried the pumpkin pie crescent rolls.  They are going to be served as the dessert for our weekly Sunday dinner.  (We didn’t have one last week because I was sick and my mother-in-law had the boys.)

Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls

Stars of the recipe:

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. canned pumpkin
  • 2 Tbsp. condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages of crescent rolls
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, condensed milk, flour, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.  Mix until well combined.
  3. Unroll the crescent rolls.  Spread 1 & 1/2 Tbsp. of the pumpkin pie mixture over the crescent rolls.
  4. Roll the crescent rolls in the crescent shape.
  5. Place on the cooking sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
  7. Enjoy.

Visiting the University of Louisville and Dinner

After we left the Muhammad Ali Center, we went to the campus of the University of Louisville.  One of my students played football there from 2010 until 2014.  Since I was down there, I wanted to visit the campus.

While we were at the Muhammad Ali Center, I talked to one of the people who worked there.  He knew who my student was which was totally cool.

It’s a totally beautiful campus.

There is an art center by where we stopped to visit the campus.  Outside the art center was different statues that I thought were cool.

A giant wishbone

The beautiful fall foliage on the campus

As I was walking around, I took a photo of the band they gave me to wear while I was in the Ali Center.  I love the saying – “Be great – Do great things.”

Here is more of the campus – So beautiful in the middle of the city

The sunset – I took this photo as we were driving down the highway.  I think it came out great.

We then got to our hotel and needed some dinner.  We ended up at this Mexican restaurant called Mi Pueblo Mexican Cuisine.  We had the best service.

We were the only ones in the restaurant until another customer came into the restaurant.  They were friendly from the get go and were cheerful.  We ended up leaving them a big tip when we left.

They gave us a sample of a street taco they were testing out.  Pretty yummy!

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel room and just relaxed for the evening.

While we were relaxing, I figured out how the Wi-Fi works on my camera.  I had tried to figure that feature out for the past month.  I love it because I can download the photos onto my phone.  So cool.

I can also use my phone to take photos remotely.  Yeah!  I’ve wanted a remote for my camera for a while.

On the next blog post, we are gong to visit the Highlands area of Louisville for breakfast and then the Louisville Zoo.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Have a magical day!

Welcome to Day 27 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

Here are more photos from Hubby’s and I’s visit to Louisville, Kentucky.  (First post)

After we left the Ohio Falls, we headed to the Muhammad Ali Center.  I highly suggested this place.

Freezer Meals (Day 26)

I am behind with the 31 Days of Slow Cooking.  Last week was crazy busy with parent teacher conferences on Monday and Wednesday nights.  I did not get home from work until almost 8:30 on those nights.  Then I had activities with the boys on Tuesday and Thursday evenings so I was gone on those nights.  Then my Hubby and I went on a weekend trip to Louisville, Kentucky so I was busy during the weekend.

On Friday, we traveled 2.5 hours south to Louisville.  Once we got there, Hubby decided to turn off the GPS unit because he knew where he was going.  Needless to say, he did not know where he was going so that GPS unit had to be put back on.

The first stop was crossing the bridge to the Indiana side of Louisville.  We went to the Ohio Falls Interpretive Center area.  We enjoyed the coast line of the Ohio River even though it was treacherous at times.

Here are photographs of our drive down and the area around Ohio Falls.

This display was at one of the rest areas in Kentucky.

When we were lost, we found this cool church.

Three Bean Salad – Secret Recipe Club

#Secret Recipe Club

Every month, I’m assigned another blog to check out.  After checking out their blog, I’m to find a recipe to make, photograph, and then post. This month there are five Mondays.  On the fifth Monday, we have a special themed Secret Recipe Club.  This month’s theme is fall or even Thanksgiving dinner recipes.

This month I’ve been assigned to Sid’s Sea Palm Cooking.  After exploring her blog, I decided on the Three Bean Salad.

As a child, I remember having three bean salad for different potlucks or holiday meals.  So  I thought this would be a good salad for the Thanksgiving table.  

It’s a frugal side dish because I found the cans of kidney beans and green beans at Aldi’s and the wax beans at Meijers.  Funny story when I was in Meijers, a college student stopped me so she could ask me what ingredients were needed for green bean casserole.  

You could switch up the beans to your liking.  This recipe is a very forgiving recipe.

This is also great for Thanksgiving because you can make it the day before so one less thing to get done on Thanksgiving Day.

Sid’s recipe was originally made for 80 people so I adapted the amount of the dressing for a smaller amount.

Peach Cobbler (Day 25)

peach-cobbler

Welcome to Day 25 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

We are almost to the end of this series.

Since Halloween is next Monday, I’m going to play This or That – Halloween version.

 Chocolate candy or fruity?

I’m partial of chocolate candy.  I have always said since I was born near Hershey Park, I must have chocolate in my blood.

Witches or Vampires?

Witches, hands down – Especially if they are good witches.

Trick or Treat?

Treat – Yum!

Halloween Party or Scary Movie?

I dislike scary movies, so Halloween party would be preferred.

Skeletons or Zombies?

Skeletons

Trick or Treat or Hand out candy?

When the boys were younger, I would go trick or treating.  Now that they are older and go out on their own, I hand out glow sticks not candy.

Hay Ride or Corn Maze?

I seem to get so lost in corn mazes so I prefer hay rides.

Scary Costume or Funny Costume?

I like funny costumes.

Pumpkin Seeds or Pumpkin Pie?

I prefer pumpkin seeds.  The Imaginative One loves pumpkin pie more than pumpkin seeds.

Bottle Feed a Baby Zombie or Walk Alone Through a Dark Forest?

I wouldn’t want to do either of those two choices.  However, I would prefer to walk alone.

Bats or Black Cats?

Bats

Pumpkin Spice or Hot Chocolate?

I love pumpkin spice.

Celebrate in your neighborhood or at the mall?

We celebrate in my neighborhood.

Lemon Bar (Day 24)

Welcome to Day 24 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Today we are going to continue with the photos from the Donut Trail.

After Kelly’s Donuts, we went to downtown Hamilton.  We found the mural dedicated to Robert McCloskey.

View from the side mirror

 

 

Here are other photos of downtown Hamilton.  Some of the architecture is interesting so I quickly snapped photos as we drove by the buildings.

 

Next up was Martin’s Donuts in Trenton.

It was a cute pink building.

I don’t know why he was insistent that he stand in front of the sign.

Across the street from the donut shop

Trying the Banana Pudding donut

Our last stop was Milton’s Donuts in Middletown.  It was the closest donut shop to our house.

The boys wanted Buckeyes instead of donuts, so we allowed them to get the Buckeyes.

We had a lot of fun doing the donut trail.

What a wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful fall Saturday.

Corn Casserole (Day 23)

corn-casserole

Welcome to Day 23 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Yesterday we got early to finish the rest of the Donut trail.  We were successful this time.

Now Hubby is going to get my free shirt for completing the Donut Trail.

 

During the next few days, I’m going to be sharing some of the photos from the Donut Trail.  If you are ever in Butler County, Ohio, this is one trail you should do.  It took us two mornings to get it completed.

Butler County is located just south of Dayton and just north of Cincinnati.

Our first stop took us back to the donut shop located next to the pumpkin farm.  In the small town, there is an antiques shop.  While we were waiting at the light, I was able to capture this shot.

 

The first stop – The Wee One was willing to pose by the sign.

Afterwards we traveled to Hamilton, Ohio.  Hamilton is known for two things.  It’s the birthplace of Robert McCloskey who is the author of Make Room for Ducklings and Homer Price.  Also the high school is where President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act in 2004.

This is Mimi’s Donut Shop.  She had cool seats that were recycled barber chairs.  The Wee One was a brat so he did not get out of the car.

 

Then we drove to Kelly’s Donut shop.  We ended driving up and down the street looking for this shop.  Hubby was suppose to turn left instead he turned right.  That’s why we couldn’t find the shop.

The Wee One got out at this stop.  He wanted a bouncy ball from the gum ball machine instead of a donut.  We allowed him to get that ball.

Across the street from Kelly’s was a prepatory school.  They had some cool statues so Hubby stopped so that I could get some photos.  The Wee One refused to get out, but the Imaginative One was more than willing to pose for me.

Join me tomorrow for the rest of the photos from the Donut Trail.

Cashew Chicken (Day 22)

cashew-chicken

Welcome to Day 22 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Your pets least likable character trait.

It’s thundering outside.  The rain is pouring.  Suddenly lightening lit up the sky.

No one’s home but the dog.  He needs comfort from the scary storm outside.  So what he does he do?

Does he run and hide in the bedrooms of the family members?

No, he decides to run through the doggy door into the backyard where it’s wet, loud, and dark and then bright when lightening lights up the sky.

He goes to his secret hole in the fence that no one can find.to patch up.

Then he runs to grandma’s house.

Either he finds a little hole in the fence and runs into her backyard to her doggy dog.  He escapes the bad storm.

Or he stands at the side door whimpering until someone lets him.

Meanwhile, his owners get a call from grandma telling them that their dog is at her house.

This is one of our dog’s least likable trait.  We can’t believe that he doesn’t run and hide during thunderstorms.  Instead he will run over to my mother-in-law’s house.

When we leave for the day, we have to check the weather before leaving.  If the weather calls for rain, the doggy door will be shut so he doesn’t run to grandma’s house.

 

It’s early in the morning.  People are trying to sleep.  All of the sudden you start to hear squawking coming from the living room.Or you hear “Nich-o-las,” “”Get off the Computer,” and “Beak Bump.”

You can not sleep because the bird is insistent someone come and pay attention to him.

Then there is the mess all around the stand.  He thinks there are imaginary birds sitting on the ground.  So he throws food to those imaginary birds.

This is my son’s bird’s least likable trait.  He likes people to pay attention to him.  If they don’t, he will either start squawking or talking up a storm until someone pays attention to him.

 

What is your pet(s)’s least likable traits?

Apple Pie Pork Chops (Day 21)

apple-pie-pork-chops

Welcome to Day 31 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Today’s prompt

Share a childhood memory that makes you smile.

I could write about my trip to Walt Disney World in 1990. That trip brings a smile to my face. But that’s what most people expect from me.

So what childhood memory makes me smile the most. It’s the trip to Boulder, Colorado when I was 10. My grandma was suppose to go on the trip. However she had back surgery so she couldn’t go. My family decided I was going to fly to Boulder from Dayton by myself.

Once I got there, my aunt and her first husband picked me up from the airport. I was going to be staying with them.

We traveled through a national park. So I got to the Rockies. We then went to a friend’s apartment. Uncle Mike drank a beer. I can remember telling him that “you are not supposed to drink and drive.”  (We must have been talking about it at school.)  I also remember eating olives for the first time while visiting them.

My aunt was going to be travelling home to Ohio so I was going to be her riding companion. Because of a snow storm, we were delayed a day leaving for home. We drove through Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana before getting to my house at some ridiculous hour in the morning.

Since I fell asleep while we were driving through Illinois, my family made me go to school the next day.

So why does this memory make me smile, I think this trip started my wanderlust. I love exploring new places and even places I’ve visited before.

In fact, next week Hubby and I are going to take a small weekend trip to explore a new city. Then next month, we are going on another trip.

I sometimes will travel different ways to work because of that wanderlust.

What is a childhood memory that makes you smile?

Cranberry Chicken (Day 20)

Welcome to Day 20 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

 

I decided to Google a writing prompt for today because I was coming up blank on what I should write.  I found a website called Massive Sway that had writing prompts for each day in October.  So I’m using today’s writing prompt.

What do you like to do on a dark and stormy day?

Last night as soon as the Wee One had soon left for his acrobatic lesson with his grandma, the dog decided he was going to jump on me.  He was breathing on me and shaking like crazy.  Why was he doing that?  It was getting ready to storm.

I was working on progress reports at that time so I finished working on them.  Then I took a bath and just relaxed.

The rest of the night was stormy.  It made for good sleeping weather.  However I kept getting interrupted by the dog walking into my room, jumping onto my bed (something he’s not suppose to do), walking around my head, and then jumping off the bed.  He did that a few times before finally settling down for the night.

It continued raining throughout today while the temperature was dropping.  I wish I wasn’t at work because it would be a good day to just relax, read a book, and cook some cookies or brownies.  On a rainy day, it’s nice to make soup in the slow cooker.

In fact, I had made taco soup last night.  We had more of the soup for dinner tonight.

Chinese Pot Roast (Day 19)

chinese-pot-roast

Welcome to Day 19 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

I’m a day behind with the Write 31.  Life has gotten a little crazy around here.  I ended up having to write an Individualized Educational Plan for one of my students.  Then I had to get ready for a meeting with my principal.  Finally I had to write detailed progress reports for each of my students.  That’s only on the work end of my life.

My mom ended up moving out on Monday.  She is within three minutes driving time from my house.  That is if the weather is nice.  I can walk there in 15 minutes.  Having her close is so much better than the previous situation.  She used to live 40 minutes from me.

So I helped her out with moving out on Monday.  Actually I used the Imaginative One’s strength to help get the tv, microwave, and other boxes out to her car.  He and I ended up walking to her apartment so he could help get some of the stuff out of the car.

Last night I took her shopping so that we could get a tv.  The one she took to her house ended up not working.  It was manufactured in 1996 so maybe it was time for a new one.  LOL!  So my life has been CRAZY for the last few days.

With the crazy came a writer’s block.  I couldn’t figure out what to write and I didn’t want to write.  Now it feels better to have some of my inspiration back.

I’m going to attempt to have the next recipe up later tonight.

How’s your last few days been?

Balsamic Pork Roast (Day 18)

balsamic-pork-roast

Welcome to Day 18 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

This a bittersweet dinner recipe for me.  I cooked it for the second time on the day my sister passed away.  I got the call from my mom when I was about to sit down with my family to enjoy the dinner I prepared.

I attempted to eat some of the meal but was so worked up that I could not enjoy it what so ever.

The rest of my family enjoyed the flavor of the pork.  The balsamic vinegar lends a bit of sweetness to the pork but is not overpowering.

Balsamic Pork Roast

Stars of the Recipe:

  • 2 lb. pork roast
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ⅓ c. chicken or vegetable broth
  • ⅓ c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. honey

Steps:

  1. Season pork roast with salt and garlic powder.
  2. Place in slow cooker.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together broth, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, and honey.
  4. Pour the mixture over the pork roast.
  5. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 4 to 6 hours.
  6. Enjoy!

Mom, What’s For Dinner (10/16) and Beef and Noodles (Day 17)

beef-and-noodles-2-1

Welcome to Day 17 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Nineteen years ago, I went on my last first date.  I was in my second year at Wright State and had met him the previous month in our teaching art class.  Our teacher had a sick family member so she cancelled classes three times.  We ended up in my dorm room just talking about this and that.

Fast forward to October 14, 1997, Hubby asked me out on a date.  We planned for our first date for that Friday.

After my observation at a local elementary school, we met up in downtown Dayton and ate at Spaghetti Warehouse.

Then we went over to his parents’ house before he dropped me off at my dorm room.

A year and a half later, we walked down the aisle.

Welcome to Day 16 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Yesterday was a beautiful day in Ohio.  I had a hair appointment.  Afterwards we went to the Air Force Museum.  Then we went shopping at Fresh Thyme and Barnes and Nobles.  Later we had a family birthday party.

All in all, it was a great day.

Honey and Apple Pork Roast (Day 15)

honey-and-apple-pork-roast

Welcome to Day 15 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.  We are at the halfway point of the 31 days of slow cooking.

The Imaginative One is working towards his cooking merit badge.  He’s done the camping portion of the merit badge.  Now it’s time for him to create a menu and then cook it for us.  We are having baked pancakes made with pancake mix rather than from scratch.  He’s putting together sandwiches for our lunch.  For supper, we are having chicken nuggets and French fries.  They didn’t say it had to be healthy.

I’m still helping him with the cooking because there are some basics he doesn’t know.

It’s interesting having him cook in the kitchen.

Please  click here for the recipe for honey and apple pork roast.

Coca Cola Ham (Day 14)

coca-cola-ham

Welcome to Day 14 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Ham is one of those meals that I can make that all the family members will run, skip, or hop to the table when I make it for dinner.

When the Imaginative One turned 13, we had this for his belated birthday dinner.  The Coca Cola helps make a delicious glaze that is unbelievable.  It’s good by itself or as a sandwich.

Coca Cola Ham

Stars of the recipe:

 

  • 4 to 5 lb. sliced ham, fully cooked
  • 1 c. (8 oz.) can of coca cola or Coke
  • ¼ c. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard or yellow mustard

Steps:

  1. Place ham in the crockpot.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar and mustard.
  3. Spread the brown sugar mixture on the ham.
  4. Pour the cola around the ham.
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours.

Dear Tanya (10/13) and Slow Cooker Meatloaf (Day 13)

slow-cooker-meatloaf

Welcome to Day 13 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

I’ve updated my recipe for Young’s Dairy Pumpkin bread/ muffins.

Dearest Tanya,

It’s been a month and a half since your death and since mom has lived with me.  She has found an apartment 3 minutes from my house that she’s going to move in within the next few days.  Her old car broke down so we are selling her car to someone who enjoys fixing up cars for a hobby.  She is going to get a new used car also.  So things are moving forward.

The other day when I was on dismissal duty I saw a perfect Monarch butterfly.  It flew by me and then flew up into the sky.  Was that you saying hi to me?

Do you remember when this song came out in the early 90’s?  I told you this song was about them finding true love in the elevator.  I think you believed me.  If you didn’t believe me, you at least pretended to believe me.

I always will come up with silly things to say.

Oh, a Hurricane came through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.  He’s name was Matthew.  Any who, they actually closed down Walt Disney World last Friday because the prediction was that it was going to be category 4 hurricane that could have done a lot of damage.  Fortunately it was downgraded to a category 3.  Still bad but not as bad as they thought.  My students thought the name of the Hurricane was Jesus, Tacos, Earthquake, or Michael Jackson.  Obviously they don’t pay attention to the news.

I miss you dearly!

Love your annoying sister,
Traci

Barbecue Pork Chops (Day 12)

barbecue-pork-chops-2

Welcome to Day 12 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

So I’ve discovered a cool trick for adding photos to my blog posts.  I’ve always been afraid of using up the limit of storage I’m allowed to have on the blog so I was very sparingly putting photos on the blog.

I can now put them on my Google Photos, right click on the photo and choose the copy the image on the menu, and then paste it into my blog post.

I did that for a few blog posts but then was tired of how I couldn’t resize the photo.  This weekend I realized I could resize the photo manually.  Sweet!  Now I can share more photos without worrying about the amount of storage I’m using.

Here is a photo of Hubby and I when we went to the Goo Goo Dolls back in early August.
