Because Christmas is right around the corner, you’d best be “creating your list and checking it twice,” because you don’t want to forget anybody. You’ll discover restaurants, vineyards and breweries, and local businesses with fantastic gift options from San Miguel to Santa Margarita and the surrounding districts.
Make sure to mark your calendars for some of the fun events coming up. Many are free, family-friendly, and memory-making, such as the 60th Annual Paso Christmas Light Parade, which will take place on Saturday, December 4 from 7 to 9 p.m., beginning at 11th and Spring Street. The procession is organized by the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association.
Bring your family to the lighting of the Sunken Gardens and Historic City Hall in Atascadero on Friday, December 3 at 5:30 p.m. Following the lighting, children may enjoy a visit with Santa, as well as hayrides and fire engine rides. Tours of City Hall will be available, as well as hot chocolate. The event is open to the public and is free.
Winter Wonderland returns to downtown Atascadero on Dec. 10 from 5 to 9 p.m. Food, music, artisan vendors, Santa Claus, and SNOW have all become part of the trademark event. There will be numerous large snow slides and play mounds of white “stuff.” So mark your calendars and come to downtown Atascadero to experience the finest of the season.
We’re going to get through this together, Atascadero
Last week, Carol Porter and I gave an update on Coats for Kids 2021 at the Templeton Women in Business Luncheon Meeting at Ian McPhee’s. Members of the group donated money as well as lovely new sweatshirts for youngsters ranging in age from newborn to sixth grade. Thank you for your kindness, members; it’s been a beautiful afternoon.
The recipe for this week’s pull-apart loaf is easy but tasty, and it’ll be ideal for a Christmas morning breakfast.
Pull-Apart Pumpkin Loaf with Glaze
14 cup granulated sugar 14 cup granulated sugar 14 cup granulated sugar 14 cup granulated sugar 14 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon spice for pumpkin pie 1 box original flaky-style refrigerated biscuits, 16.3 ounces 14 cup canned pumpkin pie filling 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted Nuts, chopped (optional) Sugar glistens (optional)
Glaze ingredients: 12 CUP SUGAR (POWDERED) 14 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 2–3 tablespoons of milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using nonstick spray, lightly coat a 9-inch loaf pan. Combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl and put aside. Make 8 biscuits from the biscuit dough. Separate each biscuit horizontally into two pieces and set flat on work surface. Brush melted butter on one side of each biscuit round. Sprinkle with sugar-spice mixture and a scant 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie filling on top of each. Stack the rounds into four four-pile mounds. Place stacks in prepared loaf pan on their sides in a row, making sure that the sides without filling are touching the pan on both ends. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through in the middle. Bread should be allowed to cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. To prepare the glaze, combine powdered sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and enough milk to form a thin drizzling consistency in a small dish. Place the bread on a serving dish and invert it. Drizzle glaze over the top of the bread. Warm the dish before serving.
If using nuts, sprinkle them over the pie filling on the rounds before putting the bread together. If you’re using sugar sparkles, sprinkle them on top of the unbaked bread before baking.
