    I have no little ones to carve jack-o-lanterns with and no little ones who visit the door on Hallowe'en.

    I DO have a GREAT recipe for pumpkin-potato soup, though.

    So I thought I would pick up a couple of pumpkins after Hallowe'en and make a couple of batches of soup.

    ALL THE PUMPKINS WHICH WERE IN CLEAR VIEW AT GROCERY STORES ON HALLOWE'EN HAD COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED BY NOV. 1!!!!

    Next year, I guess I'll pick some up on Hallowe'en itself.

    Boo! Hoo!

    That's odd, but I do know around here, there were warnings of shortages prior to Hallowe'en.
    Check in the produce section of somewhere like Safeway, they may still have sugar pumpkins with the squash display.

    Sorry, I'm a day late on delivering that cake, er casserole recipe! Here it is:

    Pumpkin-Pecan French Toast Casserole (cupcake version instructions follow afterwards)

    First for Women, November 13, 2017 issue
    Active time: 30 min
    Total time : 5 1/2 hrs
    Serves: 12

    6 large eggs
    2 cups milk
    1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin puree
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1 tbsp. vanilla extract
    2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
    1 tsp. nutmeg, divided
    1/2 tsp. ground cloves, divided
    1 stick, plus 1 tbsp. butter, divided
    1 large loaf brioche or challah bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1 cup whole pecans, divided
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup flour

    1) In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves, and a pinch of salt until smooth and creamy.

    2) Generously grease 9" x 13" casserole dish with 1 tbsp. butter. Arrange bread cubes in dish. With sharp knife, coarsely chop 3/4 cup pecans; sprinkle over bread cubes. Pour custard mixture over bread cubes, pressing bread with spatula to submerge. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 4 hrs or overnight.

    3) Heat oven to 350F. In medium bowl, using fork or pastry blender, mash brown sugar and flour with remaining butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves until crumbs form. Sprinkle streusel evenly over top of casserole. Sprinkle remaining whole pecans over streusel. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until custard is set and top is golden brown.

    Cupcake version:
    Prepare the custard as directed in step 1, then stir in the bread and pecans until well-coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight, if desired. Divide the mixture evenly among 12 parchment-lined muffin wells; top with streusel. Bake 25 to 30 min. or until cooked through.

    There's a lentil filling for a stuffed acorn squash recipe in the Lentil Recipes thread. Serves 6. It's from Haylie Pomroy's website.

    This squash recipe is for a single serving and is from Haylie Pomroy's Metabolism Revolution book but I could not locate it on her website.

    Stuffed Acorn Squash-one serving (Meal Map 1 version)
    1/2 acorn squash, seeded
    1/2 tsp minced garlic
    1/2 cup diced onion
    splash of water
    4 oz. lean ground turkey*
    1 cup diced apple
    3/4 tsp fresh rosemary
    1-1/2 tsp fresh thyme
    2 cups baby spinach

    1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (my note-if you are using a toaster oven, don't use the paper).
    2. Place the squash cut-side down on the baking sheet and roast for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top of the squash
    feels tender when gently pressed. Remove from the oven and set aside.
    3. While the squash roasts, heat a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and onion with a splash of water and
    cook until just tender, about 6 minutes. Add turkey, increase heat to medium, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes until
    just browned. Add the apple, rosemary and thyme and cook, stirring, until the apple softens. Add the spinach and salt
    and pepper to taste and cook, stirring, until the spinach wilts.
    4. Preheat the broiler. While the broiler preheats, fill the squash cavity with the stuffing mixture. Arrange the squash
    on the baking sheet, stuffing-side up, and broil for 5 to 10 minutes until the top gets nice and toasty. Once browned,
    remove squash from the oven, allow to cool a bit, and serve warm.

    If you have too much zucchini or someone gifted you some excess zucchini from their gardens, have a look at these recipes for possible ways to put that produce to use!
