Loving Fall Decor!

I do not celebrate Halloween but Fall is my favorite season. It can be hard to decorate for Fall without getting jack-o-lanterns and other spooky stuff in the mix. This craft idea was SOOOO cute, it literally took me 10 minutes from start to finish and most of that was collecting the stuff I have laying around.

If anyone wants to do this and does not have branches, I'll be happy to share from my abundance.

The Sinamay Ribbon is my touch to the project, please go to Kaysi's Blog to see the tutorial on how to make them and see them with raffia ribbon!

Thanks for checking in with me. Enjoy!!

Posole is Mexican Stew. You can make it vegetarian/vegan or with meat. It works either way REALLY well. I am going to list all the ingredients for meat and include the vegetarian options in parentheses.

1 Can 15 oz Crushed tomatoes
1 can chopped tomatoes with green chilis, hot or mild
1 QT chicken stock (vegetable stock)
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 can golden hominy, drained
1 small chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
1 lb sausage, browned or any leftover meat (just leave out meat, beans are a GREAT protein source)
1 tsp. chili power
2 tsp. cumin

You just dump it all in a stock pot or crock pot. 2 hours simmering in stock pot. In crockpot, 8 hours low/4 hours high You can even brown the sausage and add it at the end.

Serve over any carbs, rice, diced and roasted potatoes, quinoa, couscous, orzo or any other noodles.
