free pumpkin!

ok, so i made this thing.

i needed recipes to use up pumpkin because halloween day i was driving down route two and at conant farm they were giving away the last of the season's pumpkins on the lawn for free.

now, you maybe see free pumpkins and think "decorations!" but i see free pumpkins and i see food.

so i found that recipe and pretty much made it.

when i say "pretty much", there are some differences in how it got executed in my house.

for starters, even though everyone tells you that for cooking you really want to use darlin' little sugar pumpkins and not field pumpkins.

that's all fine and dandy, but what i have to work with is one enormous misshapen FREE pumpkin.

free, as in "there's a few more dollars i'll have to spend on heat or something later on."

second thing and along the same lines: while i know onions are not interchangeable with shallots, they come close and i HAVE onions that i'd like to use before they go soft and shallots have to come from the grocery store.

so if i adjust the recipe, the only ingredient i have to buy special is the goat cheese.

and i know you are all dying to know: is it good?

why, yes.

yes it is.

it is very, very good.

Hmm....that is the way we cook. We had this great recipe for broccoli cauliflower casserole. But we didn't have gruyre cheese. We had swiss - close. We didn't have the right onions but we had onions. We were to use some chili powder. We only had HOT chili powder - just used less. We were to use sharp cheddar cheese and i only had mild. Hey it worked. It was really really good. The only thing we had the was the exact same as the recipe was the vegetables and the parmesean cheese. But everyone loved it so what the hell. I like the way you think. :-)
