Halloween Parades: Isn’t it fun to get together with your friends at school or church and march around for your parents before playing games and eating treats?

HalloweenTreat: Soup in a Pumpkin
Here’s the recipe I’ve used before.


1 medium Pumpkin
1/4 cup Onion — chopped
1 1/2 lb Ground beef
2 T Soy sauce
2 T Brown Sugar
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups cooked rice

Clean stringy pulp and seeds from pumpkin. Saute onion and ground beef. Add soup, soy sauce and brown sugar. Simmer for 8-10 minutes. Add cooked rice. Put meat-rice mixture into pumpkin. Replace lid. Place the pumpkin in a 13 x 9 pan. Bake at 350 for 60 min to 90 minutes until pumpkin is tender. Slice in quarters to serve.

I liked it, but none of the kids did. Or maybe they were just too interested in going trick-or-treating. (That’s why we usually resort to something quick and easy like English muffin pizzas.) However, next year I might try this recipe. It looks pretty good.
