Last night Dan threw a wonderful dinner party, in true Iron Chef fashion, with a single food theme running through all the dishes. To celebrate the wonderful fall bounty, Dan made pumpkin rice, curried pumpkin seads, and pumpkin soup cooked in a real hollowed-out pumpkin. Everything was absolutely delicious! My favorite was the pumpkin soup, which felt good to my sickly little head, so vegetably and wholesomey. Josh, our guest of honor, also made a pumpkin pie which was pretty good too. He was a famous (read: employed) dessert chef before he moved back to this area recently to pursue more career-like careers. All in all, a real pumpkin success!

Anouther dinner party approaches Saturday. It's almost like we're real adults!
