(Andrew just walked in a looked over my shoulder and said "Is that that pumpkin gross stew?")
I made it last week and it was sick. I'm big on texture and the texture on this was terrible. I made a regular beef stew and added in the chunks of pumpkin the last 10-20 minutes to let it soften. It got soft alright. I had bought a different type of meat (it was on a great sale) and it was mushy. How can beef be mushy? The flavor was just normal stew flavor. Nothing great.
It was a big disappointment. I wanted to love pumpkin stew and start a new tradition of cooking it after we carve pumpkins. (Most people said that is where they got their chunks of pumpkin from. Instead I sacrificed one of my home grown darlings. Sad.)
This is the poor little pumpkin that got the knife.
Today the kids and I made Candy Men. I found the idea on a blog that I have in my reader.
As soon as I saw her post I knew we had to make them. WinCo has great bulk candy. That is where we got our monster heads and all the pieces to their bodies. I love these guys. Too bad they have already been consumed.
Aren't they the cutest!?!
We were totally shocked to find this under the wrapper. Even the candy was cute!
I love Halloween!!!
