Dinner in a Pumpkin

*image found here

I have been wanting to try this for quite some time but have never been able to find a recipe! I was so excited today to come across this recipe from Studio 5. I don't know that I'll get around to trying it this year, but maybe next Halloween! Have you ever tried dinner in a pumpkin? Did you like it?

  • 1 pumpkin, 10-inches in diameter
  • 3 cups hamburger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 can mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped green peppers
  • 1 cup rice

Clean pumpkin and set aside. Brown hamburger and drain well. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, mushrooms, soup, onion, celery and peppers. Cook rice according to directions on box. Add to meat. Mix well and add mixture to pumpkin. Put lid on and bake at 375 degrees for one hour.

I used to love watching this little music video when I was younger. Well, I decided to show it to my little youngster this year and he loves watching it! He always asks "again? again?" after we finish watching it. Or when we haven't watched it for awhile, he will come to me and ask "watch spooky computer?" and what he means is that he wants to watch this on the computer. He calls it spooky, and comments about how it's spooky throughout the video. :) I think it's cute. Hope you like it!

Halloween Drinks

When I was growing up, my mom would make "Witches Brew" every year for Halloween. It was a lot of fun and a special drink we only got once a year. Unfortunately, I never really loved the taste of it. But I would love to have a special drink for Halloween still! I found these two fun alternatives that sound much tastier. :) Find the recipe for Ogre Eyes Hot Cocoa here, and a different Witches Brew with Broomsticks here.
