Pumpkin Pie Dip
We recently spent Thanksgiving with some friends down in little Randle, Washington. This was our first long trip in our new RV (longer than 2 hours) and we were excited for a change in scenery and to spend time with a very good friend her fantastic family. This all spawned itself because we received a two-night free stay at a KM resort and they happened to have a campground/resort in Randle where our friend Cori lived. Since Cori had extended a Thanksgiving invitation for the past couple of years we thought this might be the year we go and since we purchased the RV in August we had been planning a short Turkey day getaway and this seemed like it was meant to be.
Now the KM resort was wonderful! In spite of some miscommunication about our reservation we really thought that Maple Grove was a great little RV resort. The resort had all the amenities you would want, bathrooms, main lodge, cable TV hookups, power, water, sewer and even internet. Some of the more remote sites even had amenities like a covered outdoor community kitchen. Our only regret was that we didn’t have time to play a little golf and experience more of what the resort had to offer.
The next best thing about this trip was the company we were spending our holiday with. Cori and her family and friends were really awesome and we had a great time. When we arrived at Cori’s mother’s house she instantly invited us into the kitchen to enjoy the snack spread she had laid out for guests. There were vegetable trays and sweets and chips and salsa and then there was this dip with cookies set around it. Cori’s mom looked at us and said you have to try this pumpkin pie dip and she proceeded to grab a cookie, dip it and chow down on it. I’m not much of a fan of pumpkin so I opted out of the dip but everyone else raved about it and my friend Dene asked me to get the recipe and post it so I can make it someday. So here it is, the much raved about pumpkin pie dip posted as promised. I may make this for Christmas this year.
