PUMPKIN COBBLER

I first had this at a ladies prayer meeting.

We were meeting at Shirley's house and she served this in pretty glass dessert goblets with a dollop of  whipped  cream on top.

It was a cool, rainy night in fall and her house was so warm and cozy and then she brought this out and the evening was complete.

She sent me home with the recipe and I'm hoping you will like it as much as I do.

If you are an experienced baker you will appreciate the ease of this recipe and if you are a beginner you won't be intimidated.

It's the perfect fall dessert.

3 eggs

1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling, just plain pumpkin

1 (12. oz.) can evaporated milk, not condensed, make sure it's  evaporated, there is a difference.

1 cup sugar

1/8 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. cinnimon

1 tsp vanilla

1 box yellow cake mix

2 sticks real butter, melted

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)  I use them

Mix the first 8 ingredients really well.

Pour into an ungreased 9x13 inch baking dish

Sprinkle the dry cake mix all over the top of the pumpkin mixture.

Drizzle the melted butter over the top of the cake mix.

Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top of the melted butter.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until it's golden brown and set, this should take at least 30 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream.

A LOOK INSIDE MY JOURNAL

All of you have been so good to me.

You have prayed and encouraged.

You have sent cards and messages and flowers and food and gifts.

So I wanted to give you an update on whats going on.

As you know two years ago they found a mass in my abdomen.

It turned out to be retroperitoneal fibrosis.

It's rare.

Not many people have it and so they don't know a lot about it.

I had to have a scan back in the early spring, the first of March I think anyway at that time we found out the mass had grown five times bigger.

That scared the doctors as they felt sure it had transformed into a cancer.

So we had to have more scans more tests and wait.

Then thankfully this month I had another biopsy.

We went to the dr. yesterday and he said the drs at U of L could not tell what it was so once again they sent the tissue sample to the Mayo Clinic.

Good news, wonderful news, it has not transformed. It is not cancer.

It is still the retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Bad news is it is growing and the dr referred t…

NOT EVERYONE KNOWS

Sometimes we think everyone knows so we don't bother to tell.

But not everyone does know.

There is always a new wave of people coming up who haven't done what so many take as ordinary.

So today we are going to tell you how to freeze persimmon pulp.

First of course you have to gather the persimmons.

Now persimmons cannot be picked.

They aren't good when they are all pretty and perfect on the trees.

When they are ready and sweet they fall.

When they fall it's not unusual for them to get a little banged up, don't worry about that.

A banged up persimmon with a little dirt or a twig on it are the best ones.

If you gather very many persimmons and can't work them up right away keep them in a shallow dish, don't pile them up and put them in the fridge.

They will keep a couple of days this way.

When you are ready to freeze them you want to sort through them and pick out any bits of leaf or twigs or dirt or maybe even a little bug.  Don't be freaked out by that …

NEVER GIVE UP

I'm tired today.

I've had it with Retroperitoneal Fibrosis.

I'm ready for it to pack up and get out of here.

When I was first diagnosed I didn't feel bad.

I wouldn't have really know anything was wrong.

Once I started getting treatment everything changed.

I know that's common with several different types of illness's and treatments.

There is a group of people who have this disease and they have a page you can follow.

They all tell about what they are experiencing.

I don't like the page.

I looked at it and everyone went on and on.

It seemed like a down place to me and besides that I wasn't having any of the things they were complaining about.

Several of them talked of pain.

They talked about having a hard time coming off the medications.

Well now I know.

Now I could post on that page.

I have gone from no pain to pain.

I have gone from a high dose to a low does and it's hard to adjust to.


I swell like crazy.

My eyes bother me.

I cry over every sin…
