Pumpkin Sheet Cake...

The holidays are quickly approaching and with that comes family get-togethers and pitch-ins. Are you like me and can usually think of anything to fix on any given day, but once you are invited to a potluck, your mind draws a huge blank?  I don't know if I am intimidated by cooking for other people outside of our little family, or what but I have the hardest time thinking of things to make!  Well, look no more.  This cake is easy to make and while the long list of ingredients might scare you a bit, they are probably all things you have in your cabinet.  I made this a few weeks ago and I'm fairly certain I took step-by-step photos, but I can't find them anywhere on my computer.  So, all you get is the final deal, which is usually all you get as time doesn't always allow for step-by-step photos anymore!

 P.S. If you are a member of my family, you can probably expect to see this at our upcoming Thanksgiving feast.  Just sayin' :)
