Day 4 - On the Edge the darn song still stuck in your head?  I HAD to take it off the blog, it made me feel a bit like this...

And yes.  It's still stuck in my head.

THANK YOU for ALL your comments!  Wish I could answer them all individually, they cracked us up!  And it's fun to imagine your famous person twins, gives us an idea of what you all look like.  What a FABULOUS lookin' bunch, I might add!

So I didn't tell you yesterday who I've been said to look like.

I've been told I look like a more "funky" Annie Hall.  Hmmm, not so sure about that.  Haven't worn a tie since, well, the '80's!

However, when I first met my husband I told him he looked like....

Yep....John Boy!  (minus the mole thingie...)

I KNOW!  And I still married him???

He was once traveling through Jordan and while sitting in the business lounge got the "Hey, you look like John Boy Walton!" from one of the staff.  In JORDAN.  It's a big joke around here.   A couple of years ago he was going to be out of town for about 3 weeks and after he left, I found THIS under my pillow... I wouldn't forget him.  

I also think it's kinda funny my name is Elizabeth.... 
Good night John Boy!

Ok, enough of that.  I ALSO forgot to tell you our all-time fav TV show!  (No, it's NOT the Waltons.)

I'd have to say for BOTH Beth and I, 
our favorite TOGETHER has to be: 

Oh how we loved that show!  Once we were traveling together (um, like we often do!) and we were trying really hard to get to our hotel in time for 24.  We wanted our jammies, the chips 'n salsa we'd snagged from lunch, and our hand applique all ready to go.  BUT, we got STUCK in traffic.  So we totally pulled a Jack Bauer zooming down side roads, pulling in and out of traffic and made it to the room with 5 minutes to spare!  

My other all time fav is:

We all wanted to be one of Charlie's Angels when we grew up!  I always played Sabrina...first, she had a cool name.  Second, it didn't take me long to figure out that she was the smart one!

What's YOUR favorite TV show of all time???

And yes, I promised another recipe.  This one is seasonal and perfect for RIGHT now!  And no, there are no funky ingredients.


Classic Pumpkin Squares

4 eggs, beaten
1 15-oz can pumpkin
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil 
(although I like to do 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup plain yogurt)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  
Beat together eggs, pumpkin, sugar and oil.  

Add flour, and the rest of the ingredients.  Mix until smooth.  Spread batter in a 10x15-inch baking pan.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Meanwhile, mix up the best part...the cream cheese frosting!

You'll need:
1 package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Cream together the cream cheese, butter and vanilla.  Slowly add the powdered sugar until nice and smooth.  
After the bars cool, go wild with the frosting!

And what you'll get is....
