    That looks epic! I love food served in its shell, or in hollowed out bread!

  6. I am from Jamaica originally and one of our staples is pumpkin soup that most folks have has dinner on Saturdays. Our pumpkin soup is a lot different….it is a whole meal with meat and vegetables, yams (not sweet potatoes), potatoes, Jamaican dumplings etc. If I ever make it again, I’ll write about it.

  7. This looks like a pumpkin fan would love it. I will pass this on to my wife, she loves pumpkin.

  8. That looks like a perfect hit for the holidays.
