Halloween No Carve Pumpkin Decoration
I dread the idea of carving a pumpkin at Halloween. It’s messy and they never turn out how I want. I found a new way to decorate a pumpkin easily! No carve pumpkin decorations is WAY easier than trying to carve a real pumpkin. I found this in a magazine from years ago and it has been such an easy, no-fuss and fun way to decorate pumpkins.
No-Carve Pumpkin Decorations!
Gather these supplies
- black spray paint (optional)
- real pumpkin or get a fake one from the craft store
- package of adhesive googly eyes in assorted sizes
- craft glue or colored glue
In a ventilated area, cover floor with newspaper. Spray-paint pumpkin black and let it dry.
Put the googly eyes all over pumpkin. Use glue to secure eyes if adhesive doesn’t hold.
Spider Web Pumpkin
Get Colored Glue and make a spider web on the pumpkin! See these web stencils.
Pick up spider stickers or other creepy stickers and decorate the pumpkin. Or use a stencil of a spider and spray-paint a spider on the pumpkin.
See these spider stencils.
Cabinet Cooking Recipes
Welcome to my Cabinet Cooking recipes. These recipes are the “open your cabinet” and you should have most of the ingredients to quickly make a meal kind of recipes. Most of my Cabinet Cooking recipes derive from using staple items I find during caselot sales. These meals become simple and inexpensive but full of yummy flavor. As I create these Cabinet Cooking meals, I will share my recipes.
Crockpot Kidney Bean Hamburger Cheesy Stew
The Stars of the Recipe (a.k.a. ingredients)
1# Browned Ground Beef*
1 Large Onion
6 Potatoes, medium
2 cans Kidney Beans, rinsed
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Diced Tomatoes (with juice)
1/2 Cup Water
3 Cloves Garlic (or 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
1 tsp Better Than Bouillon (or 1 Beef Bouillon Cube)
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Seasoning Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 cup Shredded Cheese (for topping)
Potatoes can be sliced or diced, peeled or unpeeled. Chop onions and mince garlic. Brown hamburger meat (see my quick prep idea below)!
Using a 6 quart crockpot, mix all of the ingredients (except cheese) and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Uncover, sprinkle with shredded cheese continue cooking uncovered for 1/2 hour.
As with most crockpot recipes, adjust recipe to what ingredients you have on hand when you open your cabinet!
*I buy high quality ground beef in bulk from Zaycan Foods and pre-browned the hamburger. I freeze browned mean in pre-measured to make my meal prep a snap!
