I used the same wire- its 24 gauge. It was hard to get to stay in the right shape at first but if you keep wrapping it evens out, and since the wire is so thin its easy to bend it into the right shape. And, thank you.
Thanks, ladies. I thought it might be fun to try, just for the wide range of colors I could get without having to pay for lots of different pigments. I might give it a try, for personal use. I can't imagine wax, dye and melted fat could do too much harm.
I searched and couldn't find much about this. Does anyone use crayons to color soaps? Does it produce a colored lather? I googled it and apparently crayons are made of stearic acid, which is a type of fat, therefore they would melt into the soap.. Anyone? I want to make razzle dazzle red soap.
Kale is the greatest. I eat it raw- Rip it into pieces and put in a bowl with salt- maybe a tsp or tbs (depending on how much kale and your taste) 'massage' it- rub the salt into it, squeeze it, etc. It seems to soak up quite a lot of salt. This makes it less crunchy and easier to digest. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes. At this point you can taste it and add more salt, massage it more if its still crispy (it should have the same texture as cooked kale). Add a little bit of lemon juice, some olive oil, raw garlic and cayenne pepper. I usually put sliced carrots and radishes in as well. What looks like a lot of kale unprepared turns out to be not so much when done, so use a lot! So good.
I have this really great book from 1970 called "Cooking on Wheels" If I remember correctly, all the recipes were for typical nasty 70's fare- tuna jello salads, casseroles, etc.
When the boyfriend and I went camping we made foil packets- a pool of bbq sauce or lemon slices on the bottom for flavor, chicken or steak, vegetables- potatoes, squash, peppers, onions. Also, shish kebabs with steak cubes, zuchinni, yellow squash, peppers, onions, tofu cubes, cherry tomatoes- and I'm sure mushrooms would work well, though I'm allergic. You can cook Pillsbury type tubed biscuits in a skillet- just throw some butter in and let them brown for a few minutes on both sides.
First Post! I feel like I've been lurking here for years.
Anyways, I bought this XXXL Steel Reserve tee at the thrift store (how could I not?) And kept it sitting in my room for months because it was way too priceless to botch. This was a lot more complicated than it should've been- it was so big that it was really hard to take in well, especially without a sewing machine. The image was from the back of the shirt- I basically made it into a tube top, turned it around and added straps. I left the top unhemmed and unfinished looking on purpose. Ta-Da!
