very simple, really.   remember, i am a slapdash cook for 
most modern schtuff...  throw it in the pot and see what 
happens.  not a lot of measuring so this is as close as i 
can get.   yes, i love pumpkin too, as a savory almost 
more than as a sweet.

1 lb. cubed pork
1 onion, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 or 1 ears corn, cut off cob
fair amount garlic, minced
green chile, chopped, fresh roasted or frozen preferred, 
to heat taste
1 small pie pumpkin, steamed and cubed
olive oil
bay leaf
4 c. water or chicken broth or both

brown pork cubes in olive oil.  remove.  saute onions, 
celery, corn and carrots in same pot, adding add'l oil if 
needed.  add minced garlic after other veggies start to 
swear, being careful not to burn garlic.

add water, bay, marjoram, salt and peper and simmer until 
it's soup/stew.

add steamed cubed pumpkin .  (it will be cooked, and 
easier to deal with than trying to cook raw in stew. 
 pumpking may disintegrate some, turning soup to stew). 
simmer another 10 min.

add green chili to taste and simmer until at least warmed 
through.  longer cooking will add heat.

adjust salt and pepper.

NOTE:  do NOT substitute sausage for pork or add sausage. 
 altho it may seem like a good idea at the time, it throws 
the flavor off.

CHILI HEADS:  chipotle makes a nice addition instead of 
green chili but adds more heat

i really like it with a good dark bread and butter.
