Good Sunday afternoon! Well I've had a pretty eventful weekend so far. Friday when we were out I noticed a sign for a new shopping center near us that was having a pumpkin festival Saturday. I saw tons of pumpkins (which always excites me this time of year, so pretty) and I was thinking we should maybe check it out, and I planned to look up more information on it on the computer when I got home. Well I was about to head to bed around 1 in the morning and I quickly remembered to look it up. Well I saw that they were having a pumpkin dessert contest, and that you don't have to register until you get there with your dessert in hand. I was SO excited, I couldn't pass it up! I knew right away what I was going to make, and the next morning my husband and I headed out early and got my ingredients. You could submit as many entry's as you want, and I chose 2: Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Icing, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. Well I'm so thrilled to say that I won 2nd and 3rd place! I really enjoyed it and I can't wait until next year! Now, on to these insanely delicious potatoes. Wow, these were good. You can definitely just make them in a big casserole dish instead of the individual ones, but I just love my colorful little ramekins from the Target dollar spot (even though I think these were $2.50 for a set of 4) but so worth it! You must must MUST make these! I would highly suggest letting the top layer of cheese get as brown as mine did, because to me, that totally made them! Enjoy!!
