1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / coffee mug sweater on: August 20, 2010 05:42:29 PM
Maybe it's just my mugs, but whenever I have a hot drink, the mugs are always too hot to hold and I have to hold it by the handle which is awkward for me for some reason. 

So I made this little cosy for my mug.  Probably not ideal for people who drink coffee the normal way, but I use straws Smiley 

I already have some better stylistic ideas in mind for round two, I'll keep you posted!



2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / eggplant pesto stuffed shells on: August 19, 2010 03:49:42 PM
I've been getting creative trying to find things to do with the super-cheap farmer's market eggplant and made this tonight...

Last week, I grilled eggplant and topped with pesto, then baked and it was delicious, but I made way too much, so I froze it (I was going out of town and knew it'd be a yucky mess by the time I got back if I just stuck it in the fridge) and tonight I thawed it out to see what I was working with.  It was too smushy for my taste, so I skinned it and dropped it in my food processor (that thing is the best $12 I've ever spent).  It made this really tasty concoction that I was tempted to make into some kind of panini but then I thought of pasta.



So I stuffed each shell with a little piece of mozzarella cheese and this eggplant pesto thing, then topped with a tomato sauce I made a couple days ago (nothing special) and baked to melt the cheese.  Easy and delicious!   Also very simple to make into a vegan dish -- the cheese made it more hearty and filling, but I think it'd be a very delicious cheeseless meal as well.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / my first project -- sea turtle on: August 17, 2010 07:17:37 PM
I'm new to crochet and have loved browsing through craftster for inspiration when the learning process was particularly painful!  This is the first project I've made without patterns or anything and I think it turned out kinda cute..There are certainly some things that could be modified to make it better, but I thought I'd share anyway.
