Help! So, I have two big boxes of those little samples of countertops you see at the contractors. One box is all squares of quartz and the other is granite. One side is polished on all of the square. I was wondering if etching cream works on these types of stone? Otherwise, what else can I do??
Hey guys! So, with working seven to eight hours a day, soccer games, a boyfriend, and numerous family events, I often have to make myself quick meals. While I've mastered this with little difficulty, I've yet to discover any really fast and delicious desserts. Can you help me?? I love chocolate and caramel, peanut butter not so much. But hey, I'll try any recipe! Just needs to be fast and not require any ridiculously hard to find ingredients. Thanks guys!!
You paint? Well, what about doing something like his world and your world kinda meshing together and linked together through the two of you? I live in rural Wisconsin, so I know all about farm and outdoor life. A painting of a field of corn maybe swaying in the wind? Something that really highlights and reminds him of home. Hope I helped a little!
Alright, so my boyfriend is headed off to college soon and I, being a year younger, am going to be a senior in high school. We've been dating for just over a year and a half, and I want to put something together to help him survive college. I've already got a few things, band aids, kool aid packets, tide to go stain remover pen, stuff like that, but I need some more ideas. What did you need your first year of college?
I really really love veggies and salads and the like. -But- I hate lettuce and most leafy greens. I will tolerate them in small amounts. But in general, I hate, hate, haaatteee lettuce. My usual salad consists of tomato and cucumber that get a little salt to bring out the flavor while I'm doing the rest of the work. Then I like to halve green olives and thrown in some feta. So good! Other days I like to just do tomato, cucumber, and feta. But then I like to mix up some olive oil, garlic infused red wine vinegar, dill weed, and a little bit of basil and douse it in that. So delicious!
I like adding a little bit of peppermint or orange extract to my batter. So tasty!! I also like taking my canned frosting, putting it in a bowl, and whipping it just with a fork. Gets it extra fluffy and extra delicious.
Wow. That sounds intense. I honestly don't know if I could pick a winner, though homemade tortillas sounds pretty darn tasty.
I noticed you were using a pretty big knife to cut the bacon. Looked pretty tough. I usually have to cut bacon in half to fit it in a pan, but I just wash a pair of kitchen scissors really well. Trust me, it's a lot easier than trying to use a knife. Just be sure to wash them well before and after and you're all set!
Hm. This is a very interesting statement. I'm going to take two approaches to that. My first will be what I believe is the most common meal in the US and that would be Hamburger and French Fries. In my personal opinion, I'mma go with Pork chops, gravy, crescent rolls, and peas. So nummy!
2. Why do you feel this is the All-American meal?
Well. You do see a large amount of different restaurants, diners, and other joints that sell it. McDonalds is quite possibly the most well known restaurant. Though, nowadays chicken sandwiches and chicken fingers are becoming more and more popular. In my family, when it's your birthday you always get to pick what you want made for dinner. I just love pork chops. Brown gravy spooned over the top as they come right off the grill. It's divine.
3. What state are you from?
4. Do you think geography has any effect on what people think the All-American meal is?
Oh, I'm sure it does. Geography certainly effects what food and resources are available, though maybe not to the extent it was years ago. I still believe people would want hold onto the food that makes their culture unique. People certainly have different tastes for things in different regions. We Wisconsinites absolutely love our cheese and dairy products. Vegetables and other produce too. I'm sure that other places don't hold these things in such high value though.
If I'm just trying to jazz up a cake, I like adding a little orange extract to the cake mix. It's so tasty! Or I'll add peppermint extract and I'll top the frosting with some crushed up peppermints. The ones that come in the individual little plastic? Yeah, those. So tasty!
