Autumn spiced chicken and vegetable soup

me, in silence, through many dark and intricate passages in my progress to the
studio of his master.” Edgar Allan Poe

Petite coffee
rubbed flat iron steak paired with a Chesapeake Bay crab cake

Wild rice

Sauteed green beans and baby carrots in tarragon butter
“It was already one in the morning; the rain
pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when,
by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the
creature open.” Mary Shelley

A ghostly
pumpkin crisp with cinnamon whipped cream and house made pecan brittle
“There are mysteries which men can only guess
at, which age by age they may solve only in part.” Bram
