Welcome again to Red Couch Recipes! Today a little girl in church, about 15 months and such a cutie, was licking a sucker and as she was licking she said, "num, nummie, num!" I think this pumpkin dessert is "num nummy num." There are lots of recipes similar to this, but I think this is the best. It was my Aunt Ionia's recipe. She used to make this in the fall. We had this dessert for dinner tonight. It's easy to prepare and so "num nummie num!"

Ionia was quite the cook and she liked to entertain. After she died my cousin Cindy put together a book of her recipes and made copies for all the cousins. This recipe was included in the book.

Today's Thanksgiving Challenge
Today I am thankful for pumpkins! I have always loved them; I am crazy about pumpkins! To me, they are the bright part of fall! I don't have much luck growing them, but I always buy a bunch. I have nine on my porch right now. Here are our carved pumpkins about six days after Halloween.
In keeping with our pumpkin tradition, my son is hucking them into the compost pile. Luckily, they all made it over the fence! We used to live on a hill and roll them all down . Believe it or not, we never had any volunteers the next year.
I am posting this with the following:
