Pumpkin Crisp

I made this last night for a game night, and it was SO delicious and everyone really loved it. I think I first got this recipe while living in NY...and they had us make it for an Enrichment night at church. It is excellent and warm for fall eating...and anytime you want a delicious flavorful dessert.

1 package yellow cake mix
1 can (16 oz) solid pack pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup melted butter

whipped topping

Preheat oven to 350.

Grease bottom of 9x13" pan.

Combine pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, spices and salt in large bowl.

Top with pecans.
Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until golden and set.

Tami’s Creamy Chicken Soup
(my friend made this for a holiday party one year and it was rather tasty. I just made it last Sunday and threw everything into the crock-pot before church--and it was great that way too)

2 big cans (26 oz each) cream of chicken soup (you can use 98% fat-free)
1 can evaporated milk
1-2 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash’s seasoning
3 Tbsp. chicken bullion

Put on stove and heat (not boiling). Turn down to lowest setting and add:
2-3 cups milk

In meantime boil:
frozen pack peas
frozen pack carrots

6 cubed potatoes

Boil & Shred:
5 chicken breasts (I used a rotisserie chicken--all de-boned and cut up)

Throw all in a pot together.
Add some water from chicken and potatoes. Simmer.
Put cheese on top when you serve.

This makes a huge serving for a crowd--you can get at least 2 meals from it, or you can halve the recipe.
