1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Tips on how to ripen avocados??? on: September 14, 2010 10:29:13 PM
I just put a couple in a brown paper bag on the counter. Their "gasses" will stay close and ripen them faster.
I buy green ones at the market and just have one simi ripe then as I use the most ripe one I move another in the bag...that way I always have one ready to go and they don't go bad before I am ready for them Smiley

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / They call me Wall-E on: November 02, 2008 12:27:34 AM
For Halloween this year my son wanted to be Wall-E. They don't make costumes (well we did see one in a catalog but it was kinda lame for the price) So we decided to make it.
Here it is in action on Halloween:


Now to take you on a step by step of the progress.

1. Started with a box...wasn't sure how to go about keeping it up on him and that but I think we came up with a good thing.


2. This is the first painting.


3. With the side treads on...that was an engineering feat. Thinking how to hook them on and make the spoke all from stuff we already had at the house was a process.


4. Treads off again and painted up to look like he was rusted and dirty.


5. Painted treads are on and ready to go.



6. Finished headpiece and completed costume.



It was allot of work but most of it was the planning and waiting for paint to dry. Vincent thinks it is the greatest thing in the world, so that is all that matters.

6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sushi success! on: September 16, 2008 12:49:08 AM
well you need a short grain rice...it is stickier. And then i make a rice vinegar and sugar mixture that you sprinkle over the cooked rice and let it absorbed. The fillings can be most anything you want.
I do make my rice in a rice cooker but you have to use the short grain.
