Eclair Cake

A family favorite, SUPER easy!

In a 9x13, make a graham cracker crust.
(I crush a sleeve and a half of crax, melt 3/4 stick butter, throw in some cinnamon, mix together in 9x13 and bake at 350* for about 10-15)

Allow to cool completely.

In a separate bowl, combine 3 c. milk and 1 lg. box of instant vanilla pudding.

Stir until it begins to thicken. Then slowly fold in 1 container of Cool Whip.

Spread evenly over the crust.

Melt 1 tub of chocolate icing in microwave for about 45 seconds.

Pour slowly over pudding mixture. Spread evenly.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Pumpkin Muffins

I was asked to make these for teacher appreciation this week.

IF I had to make them again (for myself) I would leave the chocolate chips out (I'm not a huge chocolate fan -- go figure).

3 cups flour,
2 tsp baking powder,
2 tsp baking soda,
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Stir these together

In mixer beat

1 16 ounce can pumpkin

2 cups sugar

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups veg oil

Add to dry ingredients just until mixed an stir in 2 cups choc chips.

Divide into muffin cups. Bake 400 for16-20 minutes. Makes 2-3 dozen muffins.

Walnut Cilantro Pesto

Antique Mommy is at it again!

This looks like a pesto I could actually make -- since I do know how to operate a food processor!

And, since I LOVE me some cilantro, I do plan on trying it.

Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup

A yummy favorite at my house, this is like queso with some chicken chunks thrown in -- and just that nutritious!

4 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can Ro-Tel
1 pint half and half
1 pint milk
1 small pkg. Velveeta
3 chicken breasts, cooked, diced
salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin to taste
avocados and tortilla chips for serving

Melt Velveeta in microwave. Combine all other ingredients until warm, not boiling. (It's VERY easy to burn the milk on the bottom of the pan -- take your time with this soup). Great in a Crock-Pot on low. Serve over tortilla chips and/or avocado.
