Dinner in a Pumpkin

Here's the Dinner in a Pumpkin recipe our family likes. We've been making this since we got married. It makes for a fun October tradition! (sorry I don't have a picture of the inside...)1 small to medium pumpkin. Cut off top and clean out.

Lightly brown 1 lb. of ground beef

½ c. chopped celery
½ c. chopped onion
¼ c. diced green onion
1 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper

Cover and simmer over low heat about 10 minutes or until veggies are tender.

2 c. cooked rice
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
½ c. chopped or sliced mushrooms
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2-4 tbsp. soy sauce

Put mixture in pumpkin, replace lid, place on baking sheet in oven at 400 degrees. Bake until pumpkin is tender (about 1- 1 ½ hours). Scoop out to serve, scraping sides of pumpkin to get the cooked pumpkin in the mixture. Mmmmm!
