What says Fall and Football better then Pumpkin Pie? And that was just dessert.
I was inspired by squash and my Autumn obsession, pumpkin in everything. Oatmeal, soup, stew, bread. and pie of course. I love cooking and eating this time of year.
In preparation for the Autumn cooking class I am going to teach, I thought I should make some of the test recipes.
Mya was well occupied outside on the deck painting a boat load of mini pumpkins we bought. She did a beautiful job.
I decided on a menu of:
Appetizer: Sweet and Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
Main Course: Gardien Chick’n Breast in a black balsamic fig reduction, with a side dish of sweet delicata squash roasted and stuffed with mixed grain rice.
Dessert: Healthier Pumpkin Pie
Heavenly. Just what we all needed. Mya ate the whole squash including the skin. It melted in your mouth. The fig reduction was the perfect match of flavors. I cannot wait to make these dishes and more in my upcoming Autumn Harvest class.
I wish you all had taste-o-vision.
Mya likes her squash empty and rice and chick’n on the side:
Can you smell the cinnamon and pumpkin. Slice of heaven, I am getting hungry all over again!
