Dinner In A Pumpkin

DINNER IN A PUMPKIN

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*

INGREDIENTS:

Medium sized pumpkin (about 4 pounds)
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 4-ounce can mushrooms
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups cooked rice
Black olives
Steamed carrot
Whole cloves
Fresh parsley

DIRECTIONS:

Using a sharp knife, cut lid from pumpkin and scoop out
pumpkin seeds and excess membrane with a scraping tool.
In a large skillet, combine ground beef, chopped green
pepper, chopped celery, and chopped onion and cook over
medium heat until ground beef is browned. Add next seven
ingredients to skillet. Mix well and place mixture into
pumpkin cavity. Place lid on pumpkin. Place pumpkin on a
foil-lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2
hours. Just before serving, embellish pumpkin by placing
(with toothpicks) black olives to make eyes, a steamed
carrot to make a nose, and whole cloves to make a mouth.
Use fresh parsley leaves to make hair around like opening.
To serve, scoop out part of the baked pumpkin, along with
the meat mixture, onto each plate.
