Let Me See That Pumpkin Roll

Sorry for the totally lame 90s hip-hop reference. It's just one of those mornings.

THANK you - Cyndi - for reminding me to post this recipe! I'm glad you liked it! The recipe for the pumpkin roll (in the pictures from the post below) is RIGHT here for your baking pleasure. Enjoy!

3 eggs
1 c sugar
2/3 c pumpkin
1 tsp lemon juice
1 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
dash of cloves

1 c powdered sugar
1 stp vanilla
1 package 8 oz cream cheese
4 Tbsp butter
*All ingredients must be at room temperature. Beat all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

Beat eggs together in large bowl. Slowly add sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice. Sift flour and baking powder together and add while mixing. Add the salt and spices. Grease large cookie sheet with shortening. Spread mixture evenly in the sheet. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Run knife around edges and immediately turn onto kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar. (Try to run a spatula under the whole thing--sometimes when you flip it over, the middle will stick to the pan and break) Roll the cake in the towel and let it cool. I roll it so it is skinnier and longer rather than thicker and shorter - that way, you can eat like EIGHT pieces and it's not a big deal because they're small. :)

Unroll and spread with filling. Roll again tightly; wrap the pumpkin roll in wax paper and then tin foil. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Mystery of Edwin Drood

Join the Marmalade pairs for a fun night of mystery and intrigue at the Empress Theatre’s “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” Charles Dickens died before he could finish his book, “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” and so the mystery remains unsolved... Until now! The audience gets to vote on who the villain is in this wonderful Victorian romp. There are hundreds of possible endings, so each performance is unique and different! This musical comedy/mystery is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit!

We would like to get a group from the ward together to see the show:

When: Monday October 29, 2007

Time: 7:00pm (doors open @ 6:30) Please meet at the church before 6:15 if you are interested in carpooling out to Magna together.

Place: Empress Theatre in Magna (9104 West 2700 South)

Cost: $6.00 per ticket

If you are interested in attending please let Anna Heywood know by emailing her at or calling 755-3549. She will make all the arrangements for tickets. Thanks, and we hope you can join us!

Not Your Kindergarten Teacher's Caramel Apples

Thanks to some serious evaporated milk rescue efforts on the Kasteler's part, Monday evening's activity was a success. I was so impressed by the ability of some present (who shall remain nameless, but I just happen to live with one) who managed to fit all the topping options onto one little apple. These fall treats were not for the faint of heart. Thank you so much to everyone who came!

Apples to Apples

For this month's activity, we're celebrating all that IS fall. That's right - we're talkin' caramel apples, spiced cider, pumpkin rolls ... and Noah will knit each of you a sweater.

Please join us at the church on Monday, October 8th at 7:00 p.m. to make caramel apples - (yeah, those intense you-could-eat-one-for-three-meals kinds) eat some Fall goodies and play games.

So, to get your caramel apple on and to claim your Noah Riley knit goods, meet us at the church Monday @ 7:00.
