Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle

Tonight all the ladies of the church are encouraged to gather at the home of sis. B (not booker). I am not sure what time we are supposed to be there, but I do know we are supposed to bring a "harvesty" dish to share. Here is mine. I hope it turns out well. I have never made it before, but you don't get great recipes unless you try out some new ones.

Honestly, although this recipe has over 300 five star reviews I myself am a little skeptical. LOL, oh well.
Oh man, I should have made my mother in laws sweet potato casserole. Maybe I will make it anyway. Don't let the name fool you. I don't like sweet potato pies, but her casserole is soooo good.

Hello! :)

I just ran across your blog and saw that you attend Bro. Booker's church. Do you know Kim Baker? I'm trying to get a hold of her. Could you have her call me at 918-378-1985? I'm Cindy Hill from Tulsa, OK and I attend Bro. Howard's church. Your help is greatly appreciated! :)

Thank you! :)

I didn't give myself enough time to make it (missed the leave in the fridge overnight part). and then I just got tired. Sorry.
