Mushroom Marinade?

SO I found this recipe called Chinese Garlic Mushrooms.

And it asks for marinated tofu, which is not available at any stores in town. And other than the marinade I made to make my tofu taste like bacon, I've never made another marinade before in my life.

So I shall put forth the recipe and hopefully you guys can suggest something that would go well with and not against the other flavors.

8 lg open cup mushrooms
3 spring onions
1 garlic clove
2 TBSP light soy sauce
10 oz package of marinated tofu, diced (my problem)
7 oz can sweet corn, drained
2 tsp sesame oil
salt and black pepper

Thanks so much in advance guys!

Whole Pumpkin Stew

Hey. I want to make a pumpkin stew for Halloween dinner where the stew is served inside a pumpkin. I've never done this before so I just wondered if anyone had any recipes that they've tried.

I found a recipe here which looks pretty good and has you bake the entire pumpkin in the oven with the stew inside. As opposed to this one which has you cook the stew in a pot and then serve it in the pumpkin when it's done. I think baking it in the pumpkin would make it more flavorful.

Also I was considering taking any recipe that calls for celery and replacing them with turnips, since someone doesn't like celery. Turnips are supposed to be flavorful. I don't really know what else would be a good replacement.

* And if you have any other recipes for Halloween, appetizers or anything, it'd be cool to hear.
