Yay for unholycookies!  I can't wait to see you dear!

(And for the rest of you, unholycookies is the friend who was young Tom Riddle.  You should pester him to post pictures of his wand and costume!  Wink)

Ok ladies, we are still missing pictures of two packages, but everyone has sent and received, so I am calling this swap officially done.  Smiley  Thank you all for a lovely swap! 

I am sure I will do another round at some point, but probably not until the semester winds down.  (I am teaching a college class this semester, on TOP of my full time job running their costume shop, and running a very large HP swap, so I'm going to be pretty booked.)  I'm thinking the next round will be over winter break sometime.  Either just before the holidays, so we can trade in order to make goodies for holiday gifts, or just after the holidays, when everyone's lives quite down.  I'm also thinking of making the next round a "Seedless Beadberry Jam Swap", (ie, with no seed or acrylic beads).  But who knows.  Maybe someone will want to start their own "Seeded Soup Swap" too...   Wink
3453  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Turkey Ham & Corn Chowder on: August 27, 2010 06:30:29 PM
DH and I made this for dinner tonight, and it was so tasty I had to share with you all.  Usually I do the majority of the cooking in our house as Jim isn't much interested.  But when he does cook, he usually goes all out and makes something very large and time consuming, and it usually involves cast iron, and a roux.  Tonight was one of those nights when I just didn't know what to make for dinner, and didn't really want to cook.  I had some turkey ham to use up, and found a version of this recipe online, hoping I could get DH to help me.  Jim did most of the cooking tonight, while I got to enjoy playing sous chef by chopping things.   Smiley

Turkey Ham & Corn Chowder

2 shallots, diced (or onions if thats what you have)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 pinch of paprika
1 quart skim milk
2 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
1 cups frozen corn
- pound Turkey Ham cut into 1/2 inch cubes
4 tablespoons fresh parsley, snipped
1 tablespoon sherry

Start by heating a 3-quart saucepan (or a cast iron dutch oven in my case) over medium-high heat. Saut shallots in oil for 3 minutes or until translucent.

Blend in flour, pepper & paprika. Remove pan from heat; slowly add milk, stirring constantly.

Return pan to heat. Add potatoes; bring mixture to boil, stirring constantly. Add corn and turkey ham; return mixture to boil.

Reduce heat to low and simmer soup for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender and mixture has thickened.  Add the snipped fresh parsley and the sherry just before its finished cooking.
3454  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini Art Quilt Swap 3 (Sign-ups CLOSED, Sendouts Sept 7) on: August 26, 2010 04:37:08 AM
Well, I couldn't sleep much last night.  In fact I've been up since 3:30...  I didn't actually use the time to sew on my art quilt, but I was inspired as to HOW I want to quilt it.  That's been something that's been plaguing me since I finished the front.  Hopefully I can start on the quilting tonight, if not, it will be tomorrow.  Especially since I want to start the embroidery and embellishing on Saturday.   Cheesy

There were a whole lot of crazy dressed up people when we went to Half-Blood Prince, some as characters, some just dressed oddly.  I went with 2 of my students (I run a theatre department costume shop at a college).  One of my kids dressed as Tonks, one as Tom Riddle while still in school, and I was Mrs. Weasley.   People stopped us and asked to take pictures with us.  The Tom Riddle was the best.  His wand was a-freakin-mazing!  But lots of others were dressed up.  Tons of girls also just had funny tees on, with HP related slogans.  ("I'd fake O for Drayco", etc.) 

The theatre we went to was playing it at midnight on 8 out of 12 screens.  They made people wait in line by theatre number, and only seated one theatre at a time.  They would call a number, let only the people in who had tickets to that number theatre, then let them get concessions, and seat them.  They started seating people at 11:00pm, but we were in theatre #8, so we had to wait to be seated last.  They didn't even let us in until almost 1:00am.  Then seated us, then started ALL 8 MOVIES.  So we all got out at the same time. It was insane. 

Sevs, you should clearly move to Bowling Green.  We could go dressed up together.  Plus it would mean I had a friend here.  :-/

Um, do you live on the moon darling?  Wink  Each place I've lived has been insane on opening night, from the tiny town in northern New Hampshire, to the oddness that is Bowling Green KY.  I mean heck, I'm even in the bible belt here, where they freak out about books on "sorcery", and we still had to buy tickets online two weeks in advance and camp out on their lawn for HOURS to see the movie.

Is this swap gonna happen, I want to craft for a fellow slytherin

Yes, the swap is going to happen.  But right now we are just in Interest Thread mode, as it is far too early for sign-ups, and crafting.  (Especially since one of the items for your partner is a treat or snack for the film.) 

Sign-ups will be started in September, and anyone who has commented here in the interest thread will be notified and sent a link to the new thread then.
