Porter and a Pumpkin

Have you ever had a dinner in a pumpkin? It's so yummy. I love the Farnworth family and learned this tradition from Pam. I sure miss her and think of her often. This is year 2 now that I have done this on Halloween night and I plan to continue this tradition forever. Much love and appreciation going to my sweet friend Pam for her wonderful recipes I'll always cherish.
The heating element in the bottom of the oven was orange when I opened the oven to take the picture. Pretty weird that it turned blue huh? And, Thank you Porter for being such a good sport and smiling big with the pumpkin. You look swell!

Oh it's so delightful. It has cooked ground hamburger, rice, cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup, canned mushrooms, soy sauce, garlic, and you bake it in the pumpkin. When eaten with the soft pumpkin it's such a nice combination.

That sounds yummy. I have heard of dinner in a pumpkin but haven't done it myself. Have you ever tried pumpkin soup?? It is yummy too.

My Mom has done the dinner in a pumpkin for years when my kids were younger. We would bring the grandkids over to her house to trick or treat and she would have dinner in a pumpkin all ready for us for dinner. It was wonderful!!
I guess I should be doing this for my grandkids!
