this is my first time posting pics, hope this works.
This is also my fist try at ATC's

I CAN NOT draw, but I color like a pro!!   Cheesy  So this is something I tried today.
I used Bic Mark-It pens    
Strathmore 300 Series 140# Watercolor Paper (bought them cut into ACEO ATC 2.5 x 3.5 cards)
A computer print out of a stained glass template
water color pencil

Step 1 ~ Lightly color cards with a pink water color pencil, then go over them with a wet paint brush. Let them dry (or dry with a hair dryer)

Step 2 ~ Tape cards to BACK of a coloring sheet. This one is a stained glass template. I used EMT paper tape, similar to masking tape & I had it on hand.

Step 3 ~ Color, color, color  I used Bic Mark-It pens. (Petal Pink , Fandango Pink , Dessert Rose , Cloud 9 Gray  and Tuxedo Black ~ I LOVE the color names)

Step 4~ keep coloring
You want to go over the colors a couple times. You want a good bleed through.

Step 5 ~ Flip over and carefully remove the tape.

Step 6 ~
Cards after tape is removed

Step 7 ~ All framed up!!

Any comments, criticisms, suggestions welcome!!

Thanks for looking!!

78  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Suggestions for stuffing pasta shells?? on: February 27, 2011 08:40:25 AM
I know everyone has a favorite way to make Italian style shells.... any other ideas?

One of my favorite meals is TexMex stuffed shells
Boil large pasta shells, or manicotti (i think the shells are easier to fill) till very al dente
mix 1 large jar of salsa with roasted corn with a couple pinches of chili powder  and shredded cooked chicken, beef or pork. simmer for a few mins.
shred some pepper jack cheese also dice some extra sharp cheddar (or use a piece of a twisted cheese stick)
fill shells with salsa mixture & a small piece of cheddar. lay shells open side up in baking dish pour more salsa over top & sprinkle with pepper jack
bake @ 350 till warm & bubbly

I've also made shells, rinsed & cooled them. Fill with a bit of shredded lettuce & use a melon baller to add scoops of chicken or tuna salad. if you are going to serve this way make sure you salt cooking water.

Any other suggestions for what to stuff shells with?

Hi! I'm new here. What a great thread this is. I just spent 20 minutes skimming some of the posts.
It's my fella & I most of the time, so our meals are usually more simple. (chicken breast or steak with a steamed vegtable & rice or potato) We cook more elaborate meals when we have his daughter on the weekends.

Looking forward to dinner tonight though. For our New Year's Eve dinner we are having a big dinner.
Salad of chopped olives, pickles, beets and carrots over baby spinach with Parmesan cheese shards & Greek dressing.
Shrimp cocktail
Main dish is bacon wrapped fillet Mignon, twice baked potatoes stuffed with extras Sharp cheddar & Bacon and steamed asparagus
dessert is pomegranate seeds over french vanilla ice cream
Later for snaking (if we have room) cheese, grapes & roasted almonds.
Also at midnight sparkling white wine with grapes. (Spanish tradition) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Grapes

Happy New Year!!
