More GNO Goodness

For those who were at this last GNO and can't wait to get their hands on the recipe for that yummy dessert or for those who couldn't make it and want another option in the recipe box...here you go!

Caramel-Drizzled Pumpkin Poke Cake – October GNO
From the kitchen of Lori Connelly 

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 jar (from 12 oz jar) caramel topping
  • 12 - 16 oz Cool Whip, unthawed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease or spray bottom only of 9 x 13 pan.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, pumpkin, water, oil, eggs & pumpkin pie
spice with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, then on medium
speed 2 minutes.  Pour into pan.  Bake 25 or 30 minutes or until cake 
springs back when touched lightly in center.  Let cool about 5 minutes.

Poke cake every inch with handle of wooden spoon.  Drizzle sweetened
condensed milk into each hole poked.  Let stand about 5 minutes until
condensed milk has been absorbed into cake.  

Take lid off of caramel jar & place in microwave on High for about 15 
seconds.  Spoon about 3/4 of the jar of caramel into each hole.  Cover
& refrigerate for about 2 hours or until chilled.  

Spread unthawed Cool Whip on cake to frost.  Sprinkle cake with cinnamon
& pecans.  

Store cake loosely covered in refrigerator.

Another night of fun! Girl's Night Out ~ Oct 10th

Yep, life is a journey and we're taking time to play! Whether you are a fierce competitor or an avid spectator, whether you like games that keep you on your feet or laid low in a comfy chair with a snack - this night of fun, fellowship, and prizes is for you! Get your game on and grab a friend - your won't want to miss out on the fun! It's not all about fun and games. Tara Cox will also be sharing and encouraging us with her personal journey in life. "Grounded" coffee shop opens at 6:30pm, featuring Pumpkin Latte's and Apple Carmel Cider! Program starts at 7:05pm. Childcare is provided.

Here's the first of four exciting chances to figure out the clue for our main game next Monday (they'll be embedded in this and the next three sneak peaks). LET'S see if you can figure out the answer before GNO. In the meantime, we'll pull back the curtain a little, each day this week, to reveal the fun to be had next week. Here's your first glimpse.

Option 1) Try to translate the seemingly simple image in your brain, with your uncooperative hand, as you draw clues for your randomly guessing Pictionary teammates. Yelling is perfectly acceptable. (You'll do it anyway)

Look for the next clues each day on Facebook. We will send them all out to you by email on Sunday if you miss them!
