Directions:
Cut off tope of pumpkin and clean out all seeds and pulp. (Paint face with permanent market if desired). Preheat oven to 350

In a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add meat and brown and drain. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, mushrooms and soup. Simmer 10 min. and stir often. Add cooked rice and water chestnuts.

Spoon mixture into pumpkin and replace top. Place pumpkin on a baking sheet. Bake one hour or until inside meat of the pumpkin is tender. (Larger pumpkins take a little more than an hour.)

Serve on baking sheet immediately as pumpkin will melt down as it cools, but will usually last 3-4 hours.
