I just realized I never shared with you all how my pumpkin bars turned out for the bake sale! The second batch was done without nuts, but with a few mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top. Below is one of each (and all the other little soldiers in the back).
Things over here at DTMS HQ are just a little more than slightly chaotically insane. Dinner after a day of (EARLY) travel back from the sunshine state consisted entirely of things that come out of cans (tomato soup, tuna), so I skipped the pictures in an attempt to avoid scorn. Many exciting food-related events are on the horizon however–your patience and lack of scorn will be rewarded.
