This is Mary, There is a recipe on this site that sounds simple and delicious. It is a crock pot cranberry Orange Pork Roast. It's something you could put in before leaving for work and then have with a side of vegetables when you get home.

I posted the following recipe.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Pudding
15 oz. can solid pack pumpkin
12 oz. can evaporated milk
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
2 T. butter, melted
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 pie crust (not placed in pie pan)
2 T. sugar

Place pumpkin in a large bowl and beat with a spoon to soften. Gradually add 1/4 cup of the evaporated milk, stirring until well blended with the pumpkin. Then add remaining evaporated milk and the 2 T. sugar and the rest of the ingredients except for pie crust, and beat until blended.

Transfer to a 4-quart crock pot coated with non-stick cooking spray. Cover crock pot and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours, until pudding is set when lightly touched with finger. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F. Unfold refrigerated pie crust (or make your own crust) and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Gently roll out crust on lightly floured surface until slightly thinner. Using cookie cutter (try turkeys, leaves, pumpkins!) cut out small cutouts. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake crust cutouts at 375F. for 8-9 minutes, until cutouts are light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack. Serve pudding warm or cool, garnished with a pie crust cutout to 'fake' pumpkin pie! Or you can crumble up purchased sugar cookies or shortbread and sprinkle those on top of the pudding, so each bite tastes just like real pumpkin pie. Oh, and whipped cream is necessary too. Serves 8
