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.)

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.

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!




More Freezer Meals (Day 27)

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.
Our lunch

When we were lost, we found this cool church.
