Halloween Chili

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
6 slices of bacon, chopped
2 pound coarsely ground sirloin (yes sirloin get a 2 lb roast and have the butcher grind it!)
3 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
Freshly ground black pepper
½ medium onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
2-3 15-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed (I add one Big can and one 15 oz can)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
8-12 oz Beef Broth (pour un till it just covers bean/meat)
1 cup chili sauce (I use Heinz Chili Sauce)
Salt to taste
Yields: 8-10 servings big bowls
Preheat a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat with vegetable oil and brown the bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, leaving the fat in the pot.

Add the sirloin to bacon drippings in the pan, using the back of a wooden spoon to break it up while it browns. Season with the chili powder, cumin and ground black pepper.

Add the onion and garlic, and cook until softened, about 7-8 minutes. Add the beans, brown sugar, Worcestershire and Beef Broth, and cook 5 minutes. Add the chili sauce and season with salt to taste.

A few minutes before serving, add bacon back to the pot and stir to combine.

Make This

Another fun idea from Glamma, we made a mini size to start. Then enlarged a new one, put on card stock and took to have it laminated. Cut out the pieces put magnets on the back. I can't wait to make accessories for it. Necklaces, skirts, bags, shoes oh the possibilities. Just you wait! I hope to finish it be for next week.

Our Delightful "Crazy Aunt Bethany" made this Chalk Pumpkin, she just painted it with chalk board paint! My three year old loves it! What a fun idea. I am thinking I might try it on a large artificial pumpkin. We will see if I have time this year, it not I absolutely will be doing it next year!

Quick Witch Lunch

We had a Witch stop by and stir up a spell for lunch. It was a frightful delight. My little goon helped wrap the mummy, she shrieked with delight.

We swirled and whirled a brew so green (amazing how coolaid can do that thing) It was fresh worm juice.

Creepy crawly spiders joined us, but not for long they got gobbled up too!

We made all 4 in an hour with crazy kids, each one took there turn! They all loved getting to sew. Take your fabric fold in half iron to make creases. Sew bottom and side. Inside out and measure 5 inches to make the "cuff" sew that and TA-DA! One more way to have some Halloween fun.

Halloween Tree

Thank you Monsoon Season for breaking a perfect size limb off my neighbors tree. It will make the perfect "Scary Tree" to add to my Halloween collection. I cut the branches trimmed it up and shaped it. Filled a tin can with "quick set" cement and spray painted it black. We added some hanging bats. It is still a work in progress, we are painting black pumpkins, and need some cob webs. I got some flashing lights to put under and around the tree (on the ground not the actual tree per Mr Safety putting lights on a dried out tree= fire hazard) check back for a picture of the final product I think it will be great!
