Sweet Pumpkin Dip

My little friend, Ella, and I made this recipe together and after tasting it we both though it was good but not outstanding. John tasted it while home for lunch and loved it! He likes that it has a mild pumpkin flavor. It sure is a nice way to enjoy some autumn fruits!

Oh, LDH, that dippy sounds very intriguing.

Today I'm making some of the cocktail meatballs you posted on and I"m going to put them in baggies in the freezer. That way, I'm a step ahead for the holidays. Freezing them raw. Hope that's what you meant.

Take care. Susan

I love your bio in the sidebar! You do NOT look like you have been married 36 years! And I too have a fetish for baby feet; there's something so precious about them. Beautiful dish for the improv challenge - pumpkin dip is always delicious with some good ginger snaps!
