The Great Pumpkin Dinner.....no, Charlie Brown was not there

....but this guy was......



Carmelized onion, saute'd mushrooms and gorgonzola tart



Potato, ham and cheddar tart



Italian wedding soup



Butterscotch pumpkin cake



Cheesecake.....the new recipe



Breaking in the new firepit......PRICELESS




(Ironically, I failed to take a picture of the Pumpkin soup....which is the crown on this annual dinner....however, there was some leftover so, I will post a picture later with the recipe if anyone is interested....)

I have a wonderful group of friends....they are there for me when I need them....through the worst and always the best....I love them....and the way I show love is to cook...so, each year I have The Great Pumpkin Dinner and show them how much I love them. We gather, gobble, laugh, gorge, giggle, imbibe, chortle, even snort, but for sure we just ruminate in each other's company.

I had a beautiful Saturday night....I hope you did, too.

Peace
