We are thrilled to announce that The Inn will be featured in the Holiday issue of Midwest Living Magazine.  Have not had the opportunity to read the complete article, yet.... but from our conversations, it appears as though they will be publishing the recipe for our ever-popular Autumn favorite, Spiced Pumpkin Bisque.  Here is a preview for our friends.... Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups chopped onion
4 cloves garlic crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
