This has become a family fall tradition. I was a teenager, many many moons ago, when mom first made this. When I came home from football practice, mom said "your dinner is in the oven." I opened the oven "what the %$#@ is this." It was quite good. Prep time does not include the overnight cooking of the pork.

The last of my Fall PAC recipes. This was very good as well as fun to make. I must admit, I kind of had it easy on this one. Yesterday, I made Roger's "Running Creek Spaghetti Sauce" and because it already had the onions, green peppers and mushrooms in it, I simply added the sauce! The slight hint of cloves really compliments the stew. Serving it right out of the pumpkin was fun, too! Thanks for another keeper, Roger!!
