ast month I wrote about tailgate food and I used the featured recipes at a football watch party I hosted. The pulled pork was delicious


although I don't think it really needs to cook as long as called for in the recipe. Mine was tender and perfect before 12 hours was up. Of course, I cooked it the remaining 4 hours as directed to give the barbecue sauce time to meld with the meat. I plan to  I was also very proud of my bacon-wrapped


stuffed jalapenos, although I did need to adjust the  page 2 for details. [20-323-021-01] The night before the watch party I watched


the daughters of some friends and decided baking cookies would be a good activity for us. I found The Raggedy Ann Cookies recipe, featured here, in a book put out by one of our operations employees, Angie Ellison. They sounded fun and easy to involve children. (Turns out only the 5-year-old, Mia, wanted to help; the pre-teen had other plans.) Mia had so much fun buttering the bottom of


a glass, dipping it into sugar—always careful to thoroughly coat not only the bottom but the sides of the glass, as well—and squishing the cookie dough ball. Although I am not sure why they're called Raggedy Ann Cookies, they were delicious  coconut. 


also celebrates the taste of autumn. Pumpkin can be used for so much more than pies: soups, stews, stir- fry, breads, cookies—I'm trying a recipe I found for Pumpkin Mac and Cheese. If it is any good I'll  With some simple preparation, you can cook,


freeze and have fresh pumpkin all season. It cooks in recipies similar to canned pumpkin, but tastes so much better. For desserts, use a small, thin-skinned variety like Sugar Pie or Cinderella, both commonly found in the fall.

Fresh Pumpkin Meat 5 lb. pumpkin = 4 c. cooked; 2 c. cooked = 16 oz. can


Directions: Wash your pumpkin and cut in half using a non-


serrated knife making short stabs into the skin. You may want to de-stem the pumpkin beforehand by cutting a square around the stem and pulling it out. After separating the pumpkin halves, use a spoon


to scrape out all the seeds and inner strings. Either throw them away or keep the seeds for toasting. Line a large, lipped baking sheet with foil. Lay your


pumpkin halves face down on the pan. Bake at 350° for about 1½ to 2 hours depending on the thickness of your pumpkin. Your pumpkin is done when it feels soft when poked with a fork. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Scoop the


cooked pumpkin meat into a bowl with a spoon and mash like a potato for use in recipes.
