Good Sunday Morning

Good morning to all,
We woke up this morning to temps in the 30's ; highs today are supposed to be in the low 40's.. Ouch!!
It was so nice and warm here yesterday.

I have a little crafting to finish up today. Then on to more projects. :)
Thought I would show you some easy peasy paper cones. ..... There are a few NO SEW PROJECTS on here today. :)

Cones can be cut from plain colored paper or from greeting cards. To create, draw an arc onto a corner of the construction paper or card using a compass opened up as wide as it can go. Using a pair of pinking shears, cut inside the line. Roll the paper into a cone and staple; reinforce with tape along the inside seam.

No Sew Country Santa

"Hung Up on Christmas" Santa No Sew Wreath

Today's lunch is White Chili. I already started it in the crockpot.

2 tablespoons olive oil (OR vegetable oil)
2 onions, chopped
1 tsp. oregano
4 cooked, boneless chicken breast half, chopped
3 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
2 (4 ounce) cans canned green chile peppers, chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
5 (14.5 ounce) cans great Northern beans, undrained
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for 10 minutes, or until onions are tender. Add the chicken, chicken broth, green chile peppers,oregano and cumin and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the beans. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until heated thoroughly. Pour into individual bowls and top with the cheese. Yummy! Great for a chilly day!

  8. Thanks for jogging my memory about making old-fashioned paper cones. Think I'll use last-year's Christmas cards that I always save and never get around to using for anything. This will make a good project to share with my 16 yr-old granddaughter.

  9. The cones are terrific - easy but really cool. Did you save me some chili?
