I was looking for something different and simple for a stuffing for Thanksgiving. Not everyone eats it so I'll likely scale it back by half without doing the muffin thing.

2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
1 stick butter, softened
1 fresh bay leaf, available in produce department

Pumpkin Ravioli
Planned combination uses pumpkin pasta recipe #2, with pumpkin ravioli filling with the ricotta mixture.

Because of all the other cooking, I'm planning on making a pumpkin pie or two with the fresh pumpkin we have. I have a cheesecake on order coming in from a coworker's kid's school fundraiser. We are also considering getting another latice apple pie from Sam's Club as the one we got last week was kick ass!
