Chilly Season. Chili Season

Time for Chili in the crock pot in Minnesota.

Just the basics at our house. We like the spicy chorizo meat, but I have also substituted sauted mushrooms for an all veggie option.

Crock Pot Chili

1 pound of chorizo, browned
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 14 oz. can tomatoes
1 14 oz. can tomato sauce
1 14 oz. can chili beans
1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
salt, pepper, chili powder to taste

Saute onion and green pepper until tender. Add chorizo, breaking it up as you brown the meat.

Mix all ingredients in a crock pot. cook on low for 4-6 hours.

DIY Painted Acorns

Not a lot of explanation needed for this simple fall project.

I used acrylic paints, Mod Podge, glitter and mini pom poms.  I had all the supplies I needed on hand (and in the back yard).

I  "Baked" the acorns and acorn caps in a foil lined pan at 170 degrees for one hour. This kills any bugs, and helped to dry out my collection which was wet from an overnight rain.

I painted some acorns with acrylic pant, some I coated with Mod Podge, then sprinkled with glitter. I also did a few acorns and caps with Mod Podge and glitter.

After everything dried, I glued the caps on.

I glued the small pom poms onto the leftover caps.

These would be great displayed in a jar, glass bowl or sprinkled on my Thanksgiving table.
