Though I did most of the manual labor, I did have help, and have to give credit where credit is due. My DW and a friend of the family came up with two of the dishes. DW had the pumpkin cake idea (I had the recipe), and the cream cheese icing idea. Our friend, a new member to DC (She joined yesterday, but I don't know her DC name yet) had the idea for the Jack-Pies, and the appetizer salad. She also inspired the pumpkin ravioli idea.
Me, I just made the noodle dough, cooked the pumpkin, made the raviolis, the soup, the cake, the jack-pies, the spiced-ice, and anything else I might have missed here, except the salad. I also seasoned and tested everything, and figured out amounts of ingredients needed, and so on and so forth.
But the ideas were indispensable. as was the company.
