This recipe was an accidental discovery, serendipity, if you will! I couldn't find a recipe that quite included everything I had in my pantry and I so wanted pumpkin rice, so I picked a little of this and a little of that from other recipes and made one myself. It's absolutely delicious. I made it because I was in a pumpkin-y mood on Halloween Eve, and now I'm totally making it again on Thanksgiving. My picky two-year-old son even gobbled it all up and asked for seconds! I hope you enjoy it! If you find ways to tweak it, please feel free to comment!
