PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE BARS


Yesterday afternoon our Mexican Train group met at Friend Carol's house. The temperature was cool but the sun was shining coming in the windows. Carol also had decorated some for fall. It was just a perfect day to gather with friends and have a friendly game of Mexican Train. 

After the light lunch Carol surprised us with, we were all surprised when she said she had dessert. It was the first time this fall several of the ladies had had pumpkin. (It wasn't for me since I made the Cranberry Pumpkin Bread earlier this week and took one of the loaves to HPC Thrift Shop to share with the other volunteers.
