Some time ago, someone requested a flan recipe. Here's one for the season!

Pumpkin-Vanilla Flan Recipe

1 box (2.7-3 oz) flan with caramel sauce mix (Royal)
1 cup pumpkin pie mix
1 cup French vanilla coffee creamer

Place 4 6 oz. custard cups or ramekins on a tray.
Follow directions on flan box, substituting 1 cup pumpkin pie mix and 1 cup vanilla creamer for the 2 cups milk. Refrigerate one hour until firm. To unfold, run small metal spatula around edge of each flan, then invert onto serving plates.
Shake gently to loosen, then lift off cups. ( You could substitute eggnog for the vanilla creamer or stir in 1/4 t. ground nutmeg before pouring into cups, or use low fat milk instead of vanilla creamer)

Savory Pumpkin Souffle Recipe

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup enriched cornmeal
One 16 oz. can organic pumpkin
1 1/2 cup milk
1 t. salt
1 t. curry powder
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. pepper
6 egg yolks, beaten
6 egg whites

Heat oven 350. In heavy 2 qt. saucepan, sauté onions in butter over medium heat until tender. Combine chicken broth & cornmeal; add to onions along with pumpkin, milk, salt & spices. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat. Cook over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat; pour into large bowl.
Add small amount of pumpkin mixture to egg yolks; return to corn meal mixture, stirring vigorously. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir small amount of beaten egg whites into corn meal mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon into 2 at. soufflé dish. Bake for 55 - 60 min. Serve immediately. 6-8 servings. ( This is a very elegant side dish. For the "high hat" effect, run a rubber spatula around the dish ( about 1 inch from the edge and about 1 1/2 inches deep) before baking.)

Ditto is still happy with his trade of a box for my new recipe cookbook.  He carried his box into the bed room that has morning sunshine.  He has added a few toys to the box. He is not sharing it with Little One.

I am still trying to sort out the get well cards sent to me while I was in the hospital and several weeks later.  I was so out of it and didn't know what was going on around me.  I opened cards and mixed up the envelopes. Now I don't know what card went with what envelope. I want to send out some thank you cards but am having trouble finding the addresses.
