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.)

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Sid’s recipe was originally made for 80 people so I adapted the amount of the dressing for a smaller amount.
