As soon as September 1st rolls around, then I feel like I have permission to start celebrating EVERYTHING PUMPKIN. Some of you may not agree with me– I know there is a big Pumpkin Spice controversy where half of the world says NO PUMPKIN SPICE until its officially fall and the other half says bring on the pumpkin!  I say BRING ON THE PUMPIN!  This Dinner in a Pumpkin recipe is the perfect (and most delicious) way to use your fall pumpkins.

Have you had a chance to check out the Six Sister’s Stuff  newest cookbook?  I love all of their cookbooks, but I think that this one has got to be my favorite.  I love Holidays and baking and this cookbook is packed full of 150+ recipes, traditions and fun ideas for Each Month of the Year.  You don’t have to worry about sitting at the fridge wondering what you are going to make because they take care of you for every month of the year.  This fall, you’ll love this delicious Dinner in a Pumpkin recipe that they gave me permission to share with you.
