Last night’s dinner had an unofficial pumpkin theme. After making a pot of black bean and pumpkin soup, I stumbled across Ashley’s recipe for a single-serving pumpkin cornbread you can make in the microwave.

Obviously, that had to happen.

Note the classy linens

It was the perfect cold-and-rainy-night meal, maybe or maybe not with a little Tom Waits on the side. I really can’t help myself sometimes.

What’s one of your favorite thing to eat on a dreary night? Favorite thing to listen to?
