While perusing my favorite message board I stumbled on a post titled "What should I bring to a potluck?" While scanning the replies I came across a recipe for pumpkin bars. What the heck, I have some canned pumpkin. Why not try them?
So, I gathered up all my ingredients and had to dig a little deeper than I thought for a couple of them. The next thing I know, the entire contents of my lazy susan cupboard are spread out on the floor and kitchen table. That is when I realized, I'm a spice whore. WTH? 3 containers of garlic powder (2 of them open). Not to be outdone were the containers of black pepper, anything containing garlic, all their Italian seasoning cousins and not to let the baking supplies feel left out ... 3 containers of cinnamon, 3 packages of expired yeast and enough sprinkles to decorate my Christmas cookies until I die.
So, I weeded through all the duplicates and expired stuff and think I filled up half a kitchen trash can. I really hope those pumpkin bars were worth it!
