    Pumpkin Carving!

    Just thought I'd share some of the results of the pumpkin carving party with you all!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
    WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Oh there's poachin'! Just not where I'm at! Pumpkin stew is basically a beer stew already cooked, for the most part, and then placed in the pumpkin, in the oven, for the last 1/2 hour of cooking time. It is awesome!

    I don't think it's native to NL but if you know how to make stew, then all you do is use beer instead of water. Makes a huge difference in the taste as well as helping to tederize the meat. I do all my stews this way, be it beef or pork. It is absolutely yummy! The difference with doing it in a pumpkin is that you can scrape a little pumpkin off of the inside and serve it on top of the stew! It is truly divine as far as stews go!
