The Foodie Extravaganza Gang are sharing desserts today........
Radha of Magical Ingredients is hosting this fun event that happens on the first Wednesday of each month. The host chooses a theme or an ingredient based on National Food Holidays. Since October is National Dessert Month, Radha invited us to join her, leaving the theme wide open to include any and all desserts.
I decided to share something seasonal. Let's see what the others whipped up for us......
When we got home from Curacao and before we left for Georgia we hosted a Welcome Home Dinner for our first exchange student, our daughter Marina and her family. We invited John who is graciously housing Marina, and her toddler, Little Miss M. He was also hosting her fiance, Devin, however he has since left for a trucking job and, hopefully, we will have found a permanent residence for the family before he returns.
I only had 2 days home between trips so I was looking for something that would be special but not require much hands on time. This dessert filled the bill and was very well received. It took me only minutes to put together 10 delicious servings of Pumpkin Parfait and put them in the refrigerator until time to serve.
When it was time to serve I topped it with a store bought gingersnap and dessert was served. I had intended on sprinkling them with gingerbread crumble but time got away from me before I made it. Sticking a cookie in the center worked out just fine.
