Hay Hay it’s Donna Day is back after a short but sweet summer break.  The past couple weeks I have been tweeting and asking, what do you want.  Sweet?  Savory?  Everyone came back with savory.  Savory it is.  I picked an easy and delicious spicy chicken dish with pumpkin.  Vegetarians – let’s see your take on this recipe, maybe a little tofu or just an extra dose of pumpkin?  Don’t have pumpkin available in your part of the world, maybe add some butternut squash or kabocha?
