Okay friends, listen up.

Thanksgiving is coming! It is right around the corner. Our Thanksgiving plans are a little wacko this year. Often, I work on Thanksgiving. This year, just thinking about lifting people out of bed and walking them down the halls, etc., makes me want to take a nap. At nearly 37 weeks pregnant, that’s just about the last thing I want to do. Not to mention the fact that I probably don’t have any scrubs that will fit me.

In addition to that, I’m not really in the mood to spend nearly 3 hours in the car to get to family. Family is coming to us the weekend after Thanksgiving though! On Thanksgiving Day, we’ll be going to see some extended family that lives nearby and we’ll also be stopping by a friend’s house. So what do you bring when you’re just “stopping by” somewhere?

“Oh you don’t have to bring anything, you’re pregnant!”ย 

Yeah. Right. I write a food blog. Which pretty much means I cannot show up empty-handed. Out of the question! It would be out of the question even if I didn’t have this blog.

These no-bake mini pumpkin tarts are a simple solution for any last-minute event. A no-bake treat! Simple to make, easy to eat, and full of the flavors of fall. Perfection!

Plus, they are super cute, are they not?

    16. Do you prepare the pudding like the box says
      Or do you just use the dry powder to mix into the pumpkin?
