Pumpkin Roll {tasty tuesdays}

Yesterday was our annual family Pumpkin Day.  No, it's not on the calendars, but it's a fun family tradition for us.  

We usually have some chili to eat, something pumpkin-y for dessert, carve our pumpkins, roast the seeds, and watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".  It's so much fun!  

Last night our yummy pumpkin-y dessert was a Pumpkin Roll .....mmmmmm

You should really make one today!
