Welcome October.....

For dinner tonight I made Baby Pumpkins with garlic custard, from a recipe in Sunset Magazine. They tasted great. I did find the recommended Baby Bear pumpkins after a bit of searching. The recipe says the custard is enough for six pumpkins, I thought it was just enough for the four I bought. You could add a cooked veggie to the custard; broccoli would be nice. Be careful when scraping out the seeds that you don't cut a hole in the bottom of the pumpkins (like I did). Kim, Casey, and I really enjoyed these. Nice way to welcome fall.

What a great idea. Sort of a different take on the 'bread bowl'. I imagine one could even put in a stew or a bean soup to the baked, holowed out pumpkin.

Regarding the fire photos, hubby is a volunteer fireman. Around midnight one night the department got called out on this house fire. Terrible story but no injuries or fatalaties (well, one fireman suffered an injury). Since I was still up and since the fire was just down the street, I grabbed my camera and off I went. Hubby is the third sillohuette to the right in the first photo. These people had zero insurance on this house, they'd JUST finished it--had installed brand new appliances, but hadn't quite moved in. Everybody is pretty sure it was arson, but it can't be proven.

I can hardly wait to make this pumpkin recipe, by the way, it's had me salivating for a couple of days now!

I hear they are rebuilding. Fortunately, they didn't lose everything. They still have a home, clothes, vehicles, and the like. And hopefully this time they won't rebuild with bridge and railroad timbers. I'm hoping this time they'll decide insurance isn't too expensive. Hubby loves firefighting. I think it must be an addictive thing, like extreme sports.
