Not sure if you can get this, but Chik'N (soy chicken) nuggets and dipping sauce are great, they hold up well and are fun for kids.

I like an egg and cheese bagel or english with so much grease that it's shiney!  Also must have well done homefries with a huge globe of ketchup...

(I have to be careful - I'm making myself VERY hungry!!!).

ooh!  Peanut noodles are the BEST!  Put them in the fridge after cooking and enjoy cold or at room temp.

8 ounces spaghetti
1 bunch green onions, sliced (white parts only)
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup hot water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


DIRECTIONS
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain.
Meanwhile, combine oil and onions in a small skillet. Saute over low heat until tender. Add ginger; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat.
Toss noodles with sauce, and serve.

HA!  Before my husband and I bought our house, we had this apartment with a galley kitchen, the WORST stove, zero counters, and an oven that the door would fall off onto my feet that had no temperature gauge. 

I was the mistress of the toaster oven (that we had stacked on top of our microwave b/c of no counters).  Additionally, one-skillet meals are super great.  You don't have to stick to the norm of hamburger helper type things, but make up your own! 

Also, when I needed to, I'd make my own counter space by laying a cutting board over the non-working burners.  We actually ate pretty well.  You seem eager to make it work, so it probably will.

Good luck!  I can attest in my brand-new custom kitchen that it WILL get better  Smiley

No problem - I work in a design studio, and I think foam core has a tendency to lose it's strength pretty quickly...  especially if you're trying to strecth things on it or jam it into a frame back.  Smiley 

I'd use foam core if I were trying to spray-mount paper, but I'd be afraid that the glue would bleed through the fabric if I sprayed it.

although foam core is easier to cut, masonite or something to that extent, will get you where you want to be.

so fun!  great job!

everytime i've done framing, I've basically used a smaller piece of masonite that fits into the frame and hot glued the un-shown sides to the back of it - similar to if you were going to, like, upholster something.  Basically, you want to make sure the front is nice and tight.  Putting glass over it is not always necessary and can take away from the detail as well as can sometimes squish the effect of the front.

Good luck!

Thanx for the input, what's the difference between Masonite and press board vs foam core?  Anyone?

you know, we have an unfinished sunporch (called a "Florida Room" here in the east) and I have been totally uninspired with it until now!  I may have to borrow that awesome idea from you!
