kabobs - marinate veggies, skewer them, throw them on the grill.
good grilling veggies:  mushrooms, squash, zucchini, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, onions...
add fruit to the skewer (or do a dessert kabob) if you want:  pineapple, apples, pears, strawberries, plums, nectarines (sugar them up for a crunchy exterior)
almost any marinade will do - homemade or store-bought.

the standbys of veggie burgers & veggie dogs work well, too.

she does a fantastic job creating freehand designs using clorox bleach pens.

i have all of my notes & ramblings through the 16 days of the olympics on my blog.  for my final notes, check this post.  there are plenty of other hints through the pages of this thread that i don't touch on, so i definitely recommend taking the time to read through them.

I love the color!  Congratulations!
I can't say anything to convince you to package it up & put it in the mail though!

a fab replacement for the ricotta in any stuffed shells or lasagna is:

1 brick tofu, firm
1 can chick peas
1 bag/box/bundle of broccoli or spinach

in a food processor, add the tofu & chick peas.  blend until creamy.
add the broccoli or spinach & pulse until it is well chopped.

you can add italian seasoning, &/or salt & pepper to taste...

use this as you would any ricotta stuffing in food.

that's ok.  i have had people telling me that i do it wrong too...  but, after stoles, butterflies, & shawls, all coming out with holes...  i figure if i am doing it wrong, the final product doesn't show it!

what i would do with those instructions is:

yarn over - bring the yarn under the working (right needle), up and over to the back (original yarn position)

Also, your description makes it sound like you are doing yarn front/forward and yarn back instead of yarn over. You want to make sure you bring the yarn over the working needle or you won't get the lace holes that you need.

my description? 
i always wind up with the hole the way i am describing it...  bring the yarn forward, under the needle to the front, up, and over the right hand needle then knit the next stitch.  i have done many, many, many lace patterns this way & always have a hole where i yo'ed.

as for the slipped stitches, i think it really doesn't matter in the end which way you do them...  as long as you are comfortable with the way you are doing them!

what i would do with those instructions is:

yarn over - bring the yarn under the working (right needle), up and over to the back (original yarn position), slip the next stitch knitwise (i always slip in pattern...  on knit side, slip knit wise;  on purl side, slip purl wise.  unless the pattern says to do otherwise), knit the next stitch on the next needle, slip the passed stitch over the knit stitch, then a final yarn over.

i hope this helps!
