MotherStucker MADE: Good as Gold Halloween DIY

Difficulty Rating: 2

I bought all my pumpkins & glitzy DIY supplies from Walmart this year — while I was there Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ caught my eye — Mr. MotherStucker is planning a Monday Night Football Party October 27th & I haven’t (hadn’t 😉 ) a clue what to serve to the party crew.  Problem solved! I’ll be feeding guests delicious items from the Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ line which features all natural meat conveniently priced at $6.97. The dry rub products are high protein quality items that have no preservatives. The unsauced items are perfect to have on hand to throw into a favorite (pizza, casserole, taco) recipe. All are fully cooked & hand pulled, making party food that much easier! MotherStucker will be attending a tasting event later this month at my local Walmart, hosted by Farm Rich Smokehouse & I’ll be sharing a hassle free recipe that I create using one of their all natural meats.  Make sure to stay tuned as the M.N.F. Party post (+recipe) goes LIVE 10/27/14…

Back to the DIY gold mine, here is what you’ll need for perfectly polished pumpkins!

Materials:

  • Pumpkins (real &/or faux).  I spray painted my fake pumpkins & real pumpkins.  I embellished the real ones with tacks, sequins & pushpins (see below)!
  • Gold Spray Paint.  I found a big brand product at Walmart that indicates on the label “also bonds to plastic”.  Get it.  Avoid headache/heartache.  You’re welcome.
  • White Tacks. Clear out the store.  Your’re going to need more than you think.
  • Large Gold Sequins.  LARGE as in bigger than a quarter.
  • Pushpins with the little ball type thing on the end.  Do those have a name?  It doesn’t matter what color the ball type thing is — unless of course you are super specific — in which case my hap-hazard directions below are highly likely to give you hives.
  • Measuring tape.  Yep.

Directions & Assembly:

  • image-9The picture to the left is a fake pumpkin.  Follow the directions on the can of spray paint & have a blast feeling like Midas!
  • Moving on to the real pumpkin…  not “The Great Pumpkin” as MotherStucker’s certainly isn’t perfect. Just take a real one & starting from the top, attempt to cover all the orange flesh with your gigantic sequins. Thankfully  the huge sequins come with 2 small holes (one at the top & one at the bottom) in which you can insert your pushpin.  I found that one pushpin was plenty.  Don’t be temped to hot glue the sequins on your pumpkin.  Just don’t ;( !   More than likely you’ll fall into a pattern of full circle sequin touching the next full circle with space between.  You guessed it OtherStuckers, go over your first sequin layer with a second sequin layer for max dazzle factor.image-11
  • After the sequin shenanigans you are going to want a break. Check out this coupon from Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ, yes #SmokehouseBBQ! Now Print! Plan your own party feast!
  • Last but certainly not least grab another real pumpkin & spray paint that bad boy thoroughly. Now comes the fun part…
  • Chevron is ALL the rage & your pumpkin should partake.  Start by measuring your pumpkin around the circumfrence.  What you are looking for is easy division.  For example, my pumpkin-to-be-chevroned was nearly 40″ around.  Ideal pumpkin chevrons are 5″ apart from peak to peak.  Therefore my 40″ pumpkin was going to need 8 peaks total.  MotherStucker isn’t a math person.  Stay with me OtherStuckers.  If I can do this, YOU can do this.  Trust me.
  • Using your measuring tape (just tie it around the pumpkin) mark off your peaks in permanent marker.  Place a white tack in each marked peak.photo-50
  • Using the highly effective “1 for me, 1 for your RULE” work down in a v shape from whichever 2 peaks you decide to start with.  My peaks were approx 15 pushpins apart (7 down each with #8 forming the low point of the top V). This is more “spirit of the law” than “letter of the law”.  MmmmmK?
  • Take your chevron down the pumpkin as far as your like for thickness.  MotherStucker’s worked out to be about 5 tacks deep.  Fill in all the way around! Repeat with a second chevron row & more if you like!

Ingredients

  • Smithfield Peppercorn & Garlic Tenderloin (on sale at Food lion $4.99 – $9.99 through September!)

  • 1 can of black eyed peans drained
  • 1 can of fiesta style corn drained
  • 1 onion diced – this recipe is so good  it is going to make you want to cry!
  • Handful of grape tomatoes diced
  • 1 tablespoon of EVOO
  • 2 cups of shredded Fiesta Mexican Cheese
  • 1/2 lime sliced for squeezing
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro divided – more if you are are cilantro obsessed like me!

Directions

  1. Prepare Smithfield Tenderloins as described on the package.  MotherStucker recommends throwing them on the grill!
  2. After letting the Smithfield Tenderloins “rest” for a few minutes cut meat into thin slices (approx 15 – 20 per Smithfield Tenderloin).
  3. Coat a skillet with 1 Tablespoon of EVOO over medium heat.  Add diced onion and allow the little tear-jerkers to get wimpy but not burn. Stir often por favor.
  4. Add black eyed peas & fiesta corn to the skillet by folding in gently.  Does the term “fold” in a recipe irritate anyone else?  No?  Ok, just me – moving on….
  5. Add 1/2 of your cilantro stash to the skillet.  Squeeze 1/2 a lime over the mix & reduce heat to low!
  6. Assemble your “Tac-OH-MMMM-Gee” bar with taco shells, sliced Smithfield Tenderloins, skillet yumminess & toppings. Call your OtherStuckers, grab a plate, load it up & get out of the way before the stampede starts! ! 😉 !

This recipe makes tacos (try naked “Tac-OH-MMMM-Gee”s menos a shell!) with LOTS of tenderloin left over!  Smithfield Marinated Pork products are perfect for a delicious artisan meal that is easy yet sure to impress. Ready to enjoy in 20 to 30 minutes, they are the perfect solution for busy families on the go. Instead of doing takeout, throw a tenderloin on the grill or in the oven and you have a delicious, perfectly seasoned home-cooked meal. In addition, Smithfield has lowered the sodium in all of their marinated pork products an average of 25.5 percent, making them healthier than ever.

Why Use Coupons?

mothersdayCoupons create delicious Christmas cookies. A few days before Christmas, my dad walked into the house, his arms full of groceries. As my mom and I were putting the groceries away in our pantry and refrigerator, we came upon six bags of dried cranberries. My dad explained that there had been a coupon for dried fruit at the supermarket – buy one bag, get one free. My mom rolled her eyes. “You’re wasting money,” she told him.

But was he really?

Two days later, I got started on my annual Christmas baking. Remembering that we had six bags of dried cranberries in the house, I decided to throw two cups of the cranberries into my brown sugar cookie batter. Those brown sugar cookies with cranberries ended up being the best cookies that I’ve ever tasted.

For me, a coupon allowed me to create a new, more delicious cookie recipe. However, there’s an art to using coupons. And in order to really save big, you’ll need to be patient, creative, and practical. Let me share with you a few of my tips and secrets.

  1. Match coupons with sale items. A coupon alone might only save you a few cents, people can get coupons from rebateszone and bradsdeals. But if you’re patient enough, wait until an item goes on sale and then use your coupon. With this method, you can often get products for less than half the original price.
  2. Get organized. Buy yourself a little coupon organizer. These come in many different sizes and designs, so go ahead and choose one that you like. Organize your coupons according to type – food, clothing, household items, and so forth. Sort through your coupon organizer every month or so to get rid of expired coupons.
  3. Study up. Before going shopping, spend a few minutes going through store flyers and matching up sale items with the coupons that you already have.
  4. Speak up. Check with stores and find out their policies on coupons. Do they accept competitor’s coupons? Will they give you cash back or apply overage to the other items that you’re purchasing?
  5. Sharing is caring. Ask your friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors for their extra coupons. Many libraries receive newspaper subscriptions, and if you ask them, they’ll most likely give you the coupon inserts.
  6. Grab a cup of Joe. Sometimes, at coffee shops and cafes, people will purchase Sunday newspapers, read them, and then leave them behind. That means more coupons for you! Check these newspapers for the coupon inserts inside.
  7. Stock with a strategy. Buy things in bulk when you can get a great deal. But do so strategically – only buy items in bulk if you know you’ll definitely use them, and if they aren’t likely to expire too soon. Go ahead and stock up on essentials like toothpaste, cereal, and dishwashing detergent, but know when enough is enough.

Why use coupons? Coupons can encourage you to try new foods. You might purchase something that you’ve never had a chance to try before, like Swedish meatballs or pesto sauce, because you happen to have a coupon it. Don’t know what to cook for dinner? No problem! Buy ingredients according to the coupons that you have, and try to create a meal out of whatever items you purchase! Or perhaps you’ll be like me, and stumble upon a fantastic new recipe because of a coupon. Buying with coupons also allows you to stock up on household essentials, so you’ll never run out of ingredients like sugar or flour, and have to run to the store.

461290_4074617709622_1002664698_oUsing coupons means more money in your pocket. More money in your pocket means you’ll feel less stress, and you’ll be able to put your hard-earned salary towards the things that you love and care about. Ask yourself, “What are my dreams and aspirations?” Do you want to start your own business? Take up golf? Pay off your son’s college loans, so that he can pursue his own dreams debt-free?

Whatever your goals, coupons may help you reach them. Using coupons while buying groceries or household items will free up your savings for the more important things in life. A little coupon clipping here and there, some time spent surfing Coupon Audit, and you’ll be on your way to big savings, and big things.
