    Just a few more days remain to flag recipes, shop, chop, clean and cook for Thanksgiving dinner. We all know we will overdo it on Thursday (or through the weekend). In the days leading up to the oversized feast, do your taste buds and your body a favor and treat yourself to this healthy and comforting vegetable stew recipe, shared by the Irish Rover’s Siobhan Riedy. Feel like having someone else do the cooking and then washing it all down with an ale or cider? Not a problem: The restaurant offers the hearty stew, featuring pumpkin, as a fall and winter special.
