My Accomplishment-Pumpkin Roll

100_4805

For many years, I have thought about trying to make one of these.  However I have always been intimidated by the idea of rolling it up.  I’m not sure why as I make many other things that need to be rolled.  Anyway, today was the day I put my fears behind me and tackled it.  Guess what?  It was not near as difficult as I thought it would be.  With a little practice, I think it would even be easy. 

Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Floyd.  Temperatures are in the mid 60’s. Lots of sunshine.  Just beautiful!  I can hardly wait to get my stuff finished and get out in this wonderful weather.   Yesterday I cooked a large pork roast in the crockpot.  We had pork roast, cheesy potatoes and pinto beans.   Tonights menu will be pork bbq with homemade buns, home fries and slaw.   I think there will be enough pork left over for burrittos tomorrow night.  I like to do this.  Cook a large amount of meat and then use it in several different ways for supper over the next few days.  This speeds up cooking time in the evening. 

I think I need to get busy.  My “green swing” is lonely and needs me to come keep it company.  God bless.
