My Mother use to call me Cinderella, not because I wore glass slippers, nor for my flare for transforming mice into men, but because I was the oldest child followed by four brothers. Needless to say whenever a house-chore had to be done my Mother would shout out, "Cinderella!"
Find a small pumpkin
Cut the top off, keep it as a hat.
Scoop out the seeds, every single one.
Layer the pumpkin core with the assorted toppings:
Gobs of shredded parmesan cheese
Chunks of crusty French bread smothered with camelized golden onions,
Salt, nutmeg and pepper sprinkles,
Laced between each layer swirls of white wine and frensh cream (don't be stingy!)
Put in the oven, bake it until it is ready to melt.
Add the top hat and serve with a cane... I mean a spoon.
