Deidre, that's sort of what I did, kind of.  I just baked a butternut squash from my garden.  Sliced the round part from the long part, sliced each in half. placed face down on parchment paper on baking sheet, and baked 375 for 1 hour.  I think 90 minutes might have been better, but the flesh scooped out ok, and pureed nicely in the food processor.  I made a pie but haven't tasted it yet.

 

I read if they are baked in a casserole dish with 1/2 inch or so of water, they steam and cook faster. Might try that next time.

Evolution of chickens, sort of.  Tyranochicken Rex?  Chickzilla?

 

Pic is from the link.  Apparently, it's all good breeding.

@ Joan...I grow my own baby pumpkins, actually in pots. If you buy them from the store, the smaller pumpkins are best. Or miniature ones. I cut them in halves, and then quarters...spray with a little margarine, and salt them, and then put face down in a baking dish...cover with tin foil. You want the pumpkin to be nice and soft so you can mash it yourself or put it into a blender after baked. About 90 minutes on 375. I use Splenda, so you can really taste the pumpkin and not just a bunch of sugar. Delish! :)

I don't like electric but I'm stuck with it because this place is all electric. Gas in this area is propane. It is very high and at least this way I don't have to sock hundreds of dollars into an outside gas tank every winter.

Mike the parts issue would be a deciding factor in deciding whether to buy one - if it ever came available. My current stove is a Maytag. It has good points and bad points. Mostly I like it much better than my old electric stove.

I may find room for sweet potatoes in my garden next season.  Will they grow in a container like regular potatoes, where you keep adding material that the potatoes grow in?

Deidre, please do share our recipe for roasting pumpkins. Do the same principles work for winter squash? My neighbor gave me a very large bushel basket of them, all different kinds.

You can call me Mike or Michael. My first name is Dennis but I never used it. (Most likely form Dennis the Menace.) My mother always called me Michael.

I envy anyone who has a Chambers stove but there are no parts for them today, so no repair. The company name was used again a few years ago, but they had no parts for the classic stoves like in your picture.
