For this edition of Souper Sunday it is Halloween week
and it’s all about the PUMPKIN!!
I am so excited to re-share my friend Michelle’s Pumpkin Chili Recipe. It may inspire you to whip up something fun for Halloween!! It is and odd combo, I know, but really yummy & even the pickiest of eaters will have no idea about the pumpkin!! Give it a try!!
1 T. canola oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey (I used turkey)
1 can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
28 oz. chopped tomatoes, with the juice
1 can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!!)
7 oz. chopped green chilies
1 can chicken broth
1 T. cumin
1 T. chili powder
1 t. sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 t. unsweetened cocoa
Sauté garlic and onion in oil. Add meat and brown. Add remaining ingredients, cover; simmer for approx. an hour- stirring occasionally. This also works great in the crock pot. Enjoy!!

WOW Halloween is almost here! I can not believe it! And to beat all they are calling for snow showers on Saturday! I thought I would share a few of my Halloween treats from the past as the past few weeks have just been insane! Hubs has been in New Mexico for work and every time I pick up the phone I seem to get bad news. Enough, of my pity party! LETS TALK PUMPKIN!!!

My good friend Jen is back sharing another one of her family favs. I did not have the success that she did with my ghost. However, the Holiday Spirit is there and the dish was a hit with the boys.
1 lb ground beef (I use turkey)
1 onion, chopped
1 (12oz) bag frozen veggies
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 jar beef gravy
1 3/4 c chicken or beef broth
2 T butter
1/4 t garlic powder
1/2 c milk
2 1/4 c mashed potatoes
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 375. Brown meat & onion, set aside 12 peas, add remaining veggies, tomatoes, gravy to beef mix. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 8-10 mins. Add egg to potatoes, mix well. Put beef mix in a casserole dish, mound potatoes in 6 “ghost” shapes. Use peas as eyes. Bake 20-25 mins.
Happy Halloween!! mama bird
