The entries were varied and nom-a-licious. We had pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin bruschetta, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin roll, 2 kinds of pumpkin pies, pumpkin swirl brownies, afghan pumpkin kadu (a savory pumpkin and rice dish), pumpkin kugel, pumpkin-ated pork chops and pumpkin empanadas. It was like Thanksgiving and a bake sale rolled into one gluttonous afternoon of eating. It was delicous. It was pumpkinriffic. it was awesome.
The winner by votes was the Afghan Kadu, but everything was so yummy, we didn't care about winning, as long as we could keep coming back for seconds and thirds all afternoon. nom.
We're thinking the next Iron Chef Lunch will be... food on a stick!
