Dieting on Cheetos

Have you ever had one of those days? 

Deciding to start my diet this week I leave 3/4 of a pan of "Pumpkin Pie Squares" from Saturday to Thursday.  Lifting the foil of said cake, the smell of mold wafts up my nostrils.  I realize the Lord is beside me reminding me of my diet.  I then turn seeing the bright orange and turquoise Cheetos bag sitting on the counter that we bought to take to Grandma Chickie (101 years old) who is in a nursing home.  As I munch on her treat (three Cheetos, four, five, six....) guilt sets in and I roll down the top of the bag, clip it shut, and wonder how I'll explain this to Rick.

Pumpkin Pie Squares
1 - 13 oz. can evaporated milk
2 teasp. pumpkin pie spice
1 C. sugar
3 beaten eggs
1/2 teasp. salt
1 - 1lb. 13 oz. can pumpkin
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1/2 to 1 C. chopped nuts
3/4 C. margarine
Combine evaporated milk, eggs, spice, salt, sugar, & pumpkin. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over top. Thinly slice margarine. Place margarine squares over top of cake mix. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake 50 min. @ 350 degrees. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. Serves 1-15.

I can't even sign my name to this post.
