Stuffed Pepper Soup

I hope you are staying warm in your part of the world.  It's still below zero here today and we're expecting a few days of this kind of cold!  Yikes!
When it's this cold, there is nothing like a hot bowl of Stuffed Pepper Soup to warm you up!  The original recipe I found (see it HERE) is delicious, but it's made with condensed soup and I wanted a recipe that was 'less processed'.  
I found one on Pinterest, but it had ingredients that made it taste more like an Italian soup.  That's not a bad thing, but I wanted a soup that tasted like a stuffed pepper.  So, I looked at my recipe for stuffed peppers and modified it to make it into a soup.  
The result:


The recipe:

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion - chopped
3 green peppers - chopped
3 15-oz. cans tomato sauce
3 cans of water
1 14.5 oz can beef broth (I use low-sodium)
3-4 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 - 1&1/2 cups uncooked rice - depending on how thick you like your soup!

Combine tomato sauce, water, beef broth, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce in large pot on medium-high heat.  
Brown ground beef and onion in skillet.  Drain and add to pot.

*The chopped green pepper can be added to the pot or cooked along with the ground beef and onion.  I've made it both ways and it still tastes the same!

Bring everything to a boil and then lower the heat. Simmer for 20-30 minutes.  Add the rice and continue to simmer until the rice is cooked.

Dinner is served!

This recipe easily serves 4. Enjoy!

How To Decoupage Dresser Drawers - With Napkins!

Welcome back!  Last week you saw a garage sale dresser transformed with paint and decoupaged napkins.  If you missed it, click here

Today I have a little tutorial showing how it was done.  Let's get started, shall we?

The drawers were sanded down to bare wood and the edges were painted black to match the rest of the dresser.  The napkins were found at the Dollar Store.
Notice they are 2-ply napkins?  You only need one, so separate those layers! Iron the one-layer.  It helps when you are ready to lay it down on the wet decoupage medium.   Since the napkins were not wide enough to cover the entire drawer, I was going to have to piece them together.  These napkins also had a very definite pattern that was going to need matching, so it was time for some measuring.  I found the middle of the drawer and matched it to the middle of the napkin.  Then I marked the edges of the napkin on the edge of the drawer with chalk.  See the white (chalk) dot? There are actually two of them as guides for …

Frankenstein & His Bride

Halloween will be here in a couple of days and if you need a quick craft - I've got you covered!

This was another of my "Spur Of The Moment" ideas.  I was working on a Christmas craft (that I'll share soon) using paint stirrers. This part of the paint stirrer was actually 'scrap' from the other project, but I hated to waste it, so, I grabbed some paint and got to work.  This shade of green wasn't my first choice, but, since this project was 'spur of the moment', and I wasn't running to the store, I couldn't be picky.   After the green paint dried, I painted some black hair and glued on two eyes.  With a sharpie, a nose, mouth, and some scars were added.  On the 'Bride' some red lips and white streaks completed her look.  
So what do you do with them?  Add a magnet to the back and you have a new refrigerator magnet, or, glue a pin on the back and wear it on your jacket.   This would also be a great project to do with kids, don't you …

Candy Corn

October seems to be flying by and before you know it, Halloween will be here.  I had some wood scraps sitting in a pile, so I decided to make some candy corn.  

I made myself a pattern in two different sizes.  

This was a "spur of the moment" project, and it fought me every inch of the way.  For starters, while I was cutting one of them out, it split right down the middle.  Thanks to a little super glue, you can't tell which one, can you?
Next, I started painting and didn't use a base coat/primer.  Needless to say, I needed many coats of paint.  Yes, it was my own fault!
 Finally, I got the paint to cover and I used a sponge to transition one color to the next.  Out came the sander and the candy corn was distressed!
Time for sealer.  While I was spraying, I ended up with a drip. Because I'm so patient - NOT - I decided to fine-sand it off and re-spray it.  Well, I made a mess of it!  Not to be out-smarted by a piece of wood, I drilled a little hole:
Pretty, huh? I grabb…
