    PinkCherryBlossom's Note:

    This is Argentinian stew in a pumpkin. The whole pumpkin is used as a pot to hold the stew. The pumpkin is baked long enough for it to become soft so chunks of it can be easily scraped out when serving. This makes a stunning centerpiece to a dinner party or Halloween meal.
