Dinner In A Pumpkin

On the This Mama Loves To Cook blog that I contribute to, my friend Melissa posted a recipe for Dinner in a Pumpkin last year. I never got to try it out last year, so this year I said FO SHO I'm trying it. It just sounded like such a cool idea and a great Fall tradition! I had Joey and the girls clean the pumpkin out while I browned the beef and cut the onions. I mixed everything together, poured it in, stuck the lid on, let it cook and Voila! Dinner in a pumpkin! It made me feel all Martha Stewartish... if only for a moment...:)

Find the recipe here! Try it! Its easy, yummy and the kids will think you are one cool mama.
