Free Pumpkin Gooseberry Patch Cookbook and Recipe

Guess what time it is???? Time for a FREE Gooseberry Patch ebook! I love this book. You can get it on Nook, Kindle and Apple! (Always check and make sure it is the price you want to pay. It is only free for a short time.)
Here is one of the recipes in the book. It is called Dinner in a Pumpkin. I've ALWAYS wanted to make this and will do so very soon. No picture now but I will have one once I get this recipe worked into my menu plan. Have you made it or something similar? Let me know. 
Dinner in a Pumpkin

10-12-inch Pumpkin
1 onion, chopped
2 T. oil
2 lbs. ground beef, browned
10-3/4 oz. can cream of mushroom soup
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. brown sugar, packed
4-oz sliced mushrooms, drained
1 1/2 c. prepared white rice
8-oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained

Remove top of pumpkin and set aside; hollow out, discarding everything but the pulp. Decorate with permanent markers, if desired, and set aside. Saute onion in oil and a 10" skillet; add beef adn heat until browned. Drain. Stir in soup, soy sauce, brown sugar and mushrooms; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Add rice and water chestnuts; heat thoroughly. Pour mixture into pumpkin shell; replace top. Place on an ungreased baking sheet; bake at 350 degrees until pumpkin is tender, one to 2 hours depending on size. Be careful not to overcook or pumpkin may collapse. Serves 6 to 8.
Some of the other recipes that I want to try is Pumpkin Chowder, Sweet Potato-filled pumpkin, October bisque, Autumn soup and Pumpkin Ice Cream pie. Well just about every recipe in this book I want to try, yes even the Pumpkin Fudge and Pumpkin Cobbler!  Oh wait, did I mention that there is a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice? I'm so going to make this pronto! I really hate paying $4 for 2 oz. of this in the store. Now I have the recipe.

So click to get the free cookbook. If you don't have a Nook, Kindle or iAnything, you can still download this on your computer with the Nook and Kindle for PC.
