Finally my Pumpkin Queso Fundido! That pumpkin had been staring at me for days. :-)

The recipe is here.

This is a fun dip, great for a party. The dip itself is very salty, I suggest my notes if you plan on making it. But definitely a do-again, I can't wait till DH sees it. And it makes for great photos!

True, I'm just trying to be fair and not change the date. How do others feel about extending to Thanksgiving?

Fine with me. In fact I will be making the pumpkin cheesecake with the ginger snap crust.

Pasta with a sauce of roasted sweet potato, tomato and coconut milk.

This was my first time to make it but not my last.

Baked empanadas with filling of roasted butternut squash, roasted and peeled poblano peppers, smoked gouda, carmelized onion as main ingredients. Craig also made the dipping sauce with cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and some other things I can't remember. I made the dough and put them together. He still has to type up the recipe as he made some changes to the original savory pie recipe he used as a base.

I was about to say I couldn't participate either as I am in a major pain flair from going out on the weekend.

I take it I can extend it to the US Thanksgiving seeing as ours has already past

There are some really great ideas happening!

Everything looks so good. I'm about ready to try out my inventions. I will have two to offer.

I am so sorry Craig and Karen. Life interrupted. I will set up the Poll ASAP.

Let it go to the end of the year. That way folks can include any specials they make for the holidays!

We can do that, too! Okay, we will carry the Challenge on through the end of December. All pumpkin and winter squash ideas are welcome to participate!

Thanks Craig!

Now if I could quit cutting off chunks of my blanket and sewing back on the other end...

We used Alton Brown's recipe for B-nut squash gnocchi this time. It uses about equal mixtures of potato and squash puree. You could definitely taste the B-nut squash this time compared to the other recipe we used previously and the color is a lot darker too. Used frozen pureed squash that was drained in a colander and then heated in a pan until it was pretty dry. Cooled a bit before mixing with the warm potato and proceeding with recipe.

This was the recipe we used previously that didn't have as much B-nut squash in it. You can definitely see the color difference.
