    Delish! I so wanna try this one, too bad we don’t have canned pumpkin here in Venezuela *sob* but we do have quite a sale in pumpkin this week, I just bought some (in fact, I’m eating one pumpkin dish a day this month, yum!)…I guess I’d have to cook the pumpkin. I’ll try this and post a picture! Did I mention I adore pumpkin? Yeah, hehehe…
