Thu, 07 Nov 2013 17:06:11 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=42379#comment-774889 We picked up two gorgeous cheese pumpkins last weekend. Currently, they are serving as Autumn decor to impress our house guests, but when it is time to eat them, we will definitely be making this. Can’t wait!

And, yeah, my kids had candy for dinner on Halloween. That is all. You win some, you lose some.

We’ll be getting our pumkin fix straight from its own bowl.

Thanks for a great, great recipe and new tradition.

I threw this together this morning and put it in the oven to bake while the turkey was cooking (we do our Thanksgiving with friends early in November). It was so easy, and it was a total show stopper. We served it surrounded by little toasts on a big platter, and it was a huge hit. I am betting this one will make quite a few appearances around here in a couple of weeks, when all of our friends have Thanksgiving with their families. So terrific.

We have such a nice tradition in our little town ..we gather at a friend’s for a wonderful potluck, half the parents take the little guys out and the rest hang in to greet trick or treaters . Saving for next year (or as one suggested Thanksgiving. Looks much simpler than a recipe I just got in from epicurious that looked very time consuming
Thanks!!

We provide the ghoul-osh and guests provide bottles of grape blood (aka wine and juice). The kids bring their pjs and get changed out of their costumes and we all warm up and have fun after being out among the ghouls.

The best part of this tradition: the ghoul-osh can be made in the crockpot or a couple of days ahead of time, so dinner is always ready the minute we return home from trick-or-treating! It helps prevent old and young alike from immediately binging on candy because we’re starving and waiting for food to appear on the table.

He even suggested the soup inside the pumpkin. I asked him if he would try the soup if I made it, and he replied, “No.”
Well, I had my answer! I’m putting it in chili!

I might try this in our Australian autumn, maybe in May. It’s already too hot to think of eating roasted pumpkin!
I love traditions that involve food :)

They’re large, and their flesh is too stringy to cook (and it tastes kind of sour). A food pumpkin is usually labeled “pie pumpkin” or “sugar pumpkin” and they’re much smaller, with dark orange flesh. Ask your produce people at the grocery store – they’ll point you in the right direction!

I’m just wondering how you can tell the difference between a food grade pumpkin and jack o’lantern on

As Jess said, I don’t think it’s realistic for me for Halloween, but it would be a fun fall meal on a more relaxed evening. Thanks!

I don’t have to do any of those things! We have one child – and he’s four MONTHS old. We’re on a really different schedule : ) This is actually really low-fuss though, so on a night you want something toasty and warm, it’s a great thing to turn to. Especially since it involves about ten minutes of hands-on prep time and then a really, really good result.
I’ll confess a family secret: I think I had Wendy’s more Halloweens than I can count growing up, all vegetables consumed this day were optional. (Sorry, Mama.)

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 16:28:33 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=42379#comment-771053 So, you’re telling me I’m supposed to rush home from work, get everyone into their costumes and out the door at a decent hour, parade them around the neighborhood, receiving and consuming All The Candy In The World . . . AND I’m supposed to make them dinner? Maybe next year, I’ll be awesome like you. Tonight, we’ll probably have hot dogs. From a street vendor. xox

p.s. This looks amazing. Thanks.
