My Creativity for the day is Scarecrow Chili! I used the Cricut, The Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartidge, The Cheerful Seasons Cricut Cartridge, The Feelin' Groovy Cricut Cartridge and The Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge!
This particular Chili has macaroni in it but you are welcome to leave it off if you so desire. I have published the recipe below the pictures. Happy Cooking! :-)
