something new: i was looking around online today, and found a chronic pain support "group" - a chat room/message board kind of online community for people suffering from chronic pain. in all honesty, most of the members there have conditions more numerous and awful than my own, but i feel like i could really benefit from being a part of their group; it's not to say my own husband and family and friends aren't incredibly supportive (they are!), but only that living in pain brings new issues and difficulties to life, which are hard to imagine or understand without living through it yourself. i feel like this is a good opportunity to gain some perspective about my current situation. we'll see how it goes!
also, the recipe for the delicious Pumpkin Crunch Cake!
preheat oven to 350 F - grease 13 x 9 inch pan.
1 can (14 oz.) pumpkin puree (not filling)
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 1/3 c. granulated sugar
1 T. pumpkin pie spice (or 2 t.cinnamon + 1/2 t. each nutmeg and cloves)
1/2 t. salt
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 1/4 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
1 c. melted butter
whipped cream
1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together pumpkin, eggs, evaporated milk, sugar, spice and salt until smoothly blended. Pour into prepared pan.
2. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly on top. Scatter nuts over cake mix. Drizle melted butter over nuts, moistening dry mixture as much as possible.
3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until set and golden. Cool at least 1 hour in pan on a wire rack before serving. Serve w/whipped cream. Store leftover dessert in fridge.


Blogger Edge had this to say:

I feel dumb I didn't think of this before:

My stroke forum is on the same site, and it's helpful to have a group you can talk to. In case you need more than one :)

And thanks for the recipe. U ROX!
