Give Away : Two Dairy Diary Sets

Halloween pumpkin heads, once again creep behind our curtains to sit on our windowsills grinning manically at neighbours and strangers passing by, while their good friends get roasted in the Kitchen.  
      
 So do I. I mean I am currently getting roasted, baking gloriously under the Albanian sunshine. While I am doing so, I was offered a lovely give-away for two Pebble Soup's readers. Not one but two Dairy Diary Sets normally £8.99 including :
  • Dairy Diary with events stickers
  • Page markers in five colours
  • Sticky notes
  • Notepad
  • Designer pen
  • Pocket Dairy Diary
if Halloween gives you the creepies think idea for Christmas stocking filler!
There are two ways of winning a Dairy Diary set.

method one : leave a comment telling us what you intend to cook for Halloween

method two: Tweet this give-away and leave a comment to let me know that you have done so.
This competition is open to UK and Irish residents only, it will close on the 3rd of November at midnight. 
The lucky winners were picked by the randomiser they are
Janesgrapevine and susiemcd1
In the meantime and before going back to my holidays, I leave you with a recipe from the Dairy Diary set

Pumpkin Gratin 


Serves 4 / Time 50 mins / Calories 334 per portion / fat 24g of which 9.5g is saturated

 Ingredients
Pumpkin 1.8kg (4lb), peeled and de-seeded
Parmesan Cheese 50g (2oz), grated
Fresh breadcrumbs 50g (2oz)
Pecan nuts 50g (2oz), roughly chopped
Chopped Thyme leaves 2 tbsp
Butter 50g (2oz), melted
Method
1 Preheat oven to 200°C /400°F/Gas 6. Cut pumpkin into 2.5cm (1in) thick wedges. Place in a lightly buttered oven-proof dish. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
2 Mix together Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, pecans, thyme and seasoning in a bowl.
3 Sprinkle evenly over pumpkin. Then drizzle over melted butter.
4 Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes, until pumpkin is tender and topping is golden. Serve immediately. 
TIP Rather than Parmesan cheese crumble over some strong blue cheese – if you prefer.
If you like the sound of these recipes and want to see more enter the give-away, good luck.

I'm going to make either some Red Velvet Cupcakes with dark chocolate cobwebs or I've had a request for some Parkin.

I'm afraid I won't be cooking anything for Halloween, it isn't an occasion I ever bother with.

I am intending to make pumpkin & chilli muffins to serve with a hearty sausage and bean bake. Toffee apples for the children!
Great give away!

Probably some form of pumpkin soup, although I have seen a delicious recipe for pumpkin bread...

Looks like a lovely set to have. Having just harvested 3 massive pumpkins from our plot, it will probably be pumpkin soup which I just love. Or pumpkin curry which I also love ;-)

Baking Addict said...

I'm making Halloween cake pops, pumpkin cake, roast pumpkin seeds and possibly some Halloween inspired cupcakes if I have time!

I've just tweeted as well.

I've never cooked anything special for Halloween - and I won't be starting this year because I've made loads of chutney over the past week due to our tomato plants going bonkers and I'm tired of being in the kitchen.

I'd love to win the dairy diary set and at the moment I'm just planning to make pumpkin soup - probably Thai style with coconut milk and chilli in it.
