Dinner in a Pumpkin:

1. you clean/scrape out a pumpkin--I prefer pie pumpkins rather than carving pumpkins
2. Brown your meat. I usually end up with either ground beef, pork sausage, or stew meat
3. sautee veggies: I've used  carrots, broccoli, onion, mushroom, bell pepper, celery, water chestnuts, corn, peas
4. Cook your grain: I've used rice-both brown and white, and quinoa.
5. Mix it all together with a can or two of creme of mushroom soup
6. Put it in the pumpkin and bake at 350 for about an hour.

It's really yummy, and when you serve it, you scrape the sides of the pumpkin and eat it too. Really yummy.

ETA: you also put in about 2-3 tsp brown sugar
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

I'm making Puerto-Rican style empanadas for dinner tonight using leftover pulled pork. I've never tried this style before, so I hope they're good!

Peas and chips and salsa. Weird night. I also made chocolate chocolate chip pecan cookies.

Celery cheese soup (it's kind of bland- if I do it again I'm using sharp cheddar and more herbs) an English muffin and some cheddar on the side.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Scallops. I've never cooked them before, but they were on offer at under a pound so why not :) ? Fingers crossed. (And does anyone know any good recipes?)

Wrap them with bacon, if that is not a dietary concern. Other than that, good luck. I don't know much about scallops, except they taste delicious when wrapped in bacon.

This sounds really interesting and good.  i might give it a try this weekend.

PSA - cardboard is also delicious wrapped in bacon  ;D

My favorite way: cook them in butter, garlic and white wine until opaque, on low heat. While these are cooking, make a homemade vinaigrette (mustard, olive oil, and vinegar, with some spices). When scallops are done (10 min. or so), place over fresh greens, and pour vinaigrette over the greens. So good.
