Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".

Turkey Turnover

This is the go-to recipe for all the leftover turkey. A flaky crust surrounds this great combination of turkey and cheese all melted together. This is a very versatile recipe, chicken or ham can be substituted for the turkey or a combination of turkey and ham or ham and chicken.This is a great meal in one with a lot of flavor, just add a salad and enjoy!

Pumpkin Surprise

The first time I made this special dessert was for my friends dinner party right before their wedding, we served a 25 person sit down dinner and this was the dessert. I just love to serve this little surprise it makes the dinner so special. It really is very easy to make and is delicious, very rich in flavor. The surprise inside the pumpkin is like a pecan pie surrounded by pumpkin pie. You might want to make two per guest, someone always says do you have another one of those?



Pumpkin Surprise
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
8 Mini Pumpkins
1 1/3 cups pecan halves quartered
1/2 stick butter
1 cup maple flavored syrup
3 eggs, slightly beaten at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
Directions
Wash and dry the pumpkins
Cut the tops off of the pumpkins and clean the seeds and fiber out of the cavity
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper, you will be very glad you use the parchment if they spill over and sometimes they will just a bit
Place the pumpkins on the parchment paper lined baking dish
Add the pecans on the bottom of each pumpkin cavity, dividing the pecans equally between the pumpkins
Slightly beat the room temperature eggs, add the vanilla and sugar to the eggs and mix well, set aside
In a medium sauce pan melt the butter, remove from heat and let cool to room temperature
Add the syrup to the cooled butter, very carefully stir in the eggs and mix well
Dividing the mixture, pour the mixture over each of the pumpkin's cavities to cover the pecans leaving a small space at the top of the pumpkin
Place the tops of the pumpkins by the filled pumpkins
Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes or until filling is set
Let cool for 15 minutes before transferring to a serving dish
Serve warm or at room temperature
Garnish with whipped cream and roasted pecans


Clean The Pumpkins


Fill Each Pumpkin With The Mix


Ready To Serve A Crowd


Or A Dinner For Two


This One Is Just For You!


Enjoy!


Thank you so much for stopping by to enjoy this Pumpkin Surprise with me today. Your visits are always very important to me and we look forward to seeing you again real soon!
Peace and Joy

Whats For Dinner Next Week 11-17-13

It is cold, the temperature sitting at 29 degrees, burrr, come sit by the warm fire with me and have a nice cup of hot chocolate. We had our last harvest for the fall garden just before the freeze, we gathered enough jalapeno's to make some pickled jalapenos, a few green tomatoes to have fried green tomatoes and some beautiful roses. More Holiday Tips, we have several bags of cookies in the freezer to replenish the cookie jar as it empties out, along with several loaves of pumpkin bread ready to warm and slice. We have a breakfast casserole in the freezer just ready to heat and serve. I like to have these things on hand it allows me to spend more time with family and friends. Now lets see what we have on The Menu next week.
