  • An Onion (Chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (Keeps the vampires away. Even the ones with a y)
  • 1.5 pints of Chicken Stock (Either from a chicken or from a cube)
  • Pumpkin. About a pound (A clue: One 6 pound medium-large pumpkin and one small pumpkin yield about 5 pounds of pumpkin flesh when carved out)
