Fall is that special time of year when everyone on the planet goes crazy over pumpkin anything. As the leaves fall and the nights grow longer, our bellies growl in anticipation of the next comforting food.

There was no one who complained and all their plates were clean which is extremely rare. After eating this meal, I decided that I wanted to have this every weekend.
