Man do I remember Disney Movies. A few weeks ago I had the honor of hosting a girls night at my home that included the following :
1. 3 Moms
2. 3 Toddlers, 1 Baby
3. Puppy Chow and a Cheese ball filled with bacon..drool
4. The Little Mermaid
You know what? Us mom’s remembered every last word to every last song in that flick. From Ariel singing about her items she collected from humans to Sebastian leading a full on ocean orchestra – LOVE.
As far as animation goes times have changed…and this is where I ease you into the next recipe. There is no harm in testing out some pre-holiday recipes in order to toss Thanksgiving up, I realized that I am holding onto some dishes that it seems the Holidays HAVE to HAVE and I don’t even love them. Now why on earth am I doing that? I most certainly do not want to disappoint guests…However this little casserole is knocking on sweet potatoes door…and well..he’s ready to fight.
• 2 cups pumpkin puree
• 1 cup heavy whipping cream
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1/2 cup all purpose flour
• ½ tsp baking powder
• ¼ tsp salt
• 1/8 tsp salt
• 2 eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup butter
• ¼ tsp cinnamon
• ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
First you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, Now let’s get our mixing on.
OMG , I also just saw Lady & the Tramp a couple of days ago…my how times have changed!!
Combine the pumpkin, heavy cream, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, vanilla, melted butter and ground cinnamon to taste. Spoon into a casserole dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let this dish cool for at least 30 minutes, it will really set up nice so don’t get nervous.
VOILA – Sweet Potatoes, meet your match…I also recommend picking up any old Disney favorite and making a night of it.
