This was sooo yummy. I'm just a little disappointed I couldn't get a better picture! I bought a real Cinderella pumpkin and it was gorgeous. Anyway. After 3 hours of the filled pumpkin being in the oven, I pulled it out to take a look, and the flesh was so soft that it cracked and fluid started leaking everywhere. I tested the filling and it wasn't quite cooked :( So, I thought, nothing for it; scoop it out and cook it some more. I put all the filling back in my big pot and simmered it for an additional 30 minutes or so. After all the filling came out of the pumpkin, though, it couldn't hold itself up anymore, and collapsed completely. I scooped up some flesh and added it to my pot, and saved the rest. So, next time, I don't think I will pre-bake the pumpkin, as it seemed unnecessary. I might also try lentils as a good sub for the brown rice. The only other thing I would change about this recipe is to double the meat; each bowl only had about 3 slices in it, and my man likes a little more meat than that. But, wow! Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing!
