Got everything wrapped up.  The local crafty store was kind of crazy for Halloween stuff.

*  I sent in a large box, so there are more goodies in 'em.  Smiley

Am majorly spoiling my partner - it's a big box of goodies, plus a few smaller crafty items!

I'm being tempted by my stash of junk food right now.  It's a bunch of local things.  Smiley  Chips, candy, and a lot of Canadian junk food.  Smiley

It's fun.  Smiley

Sending in my questionnaire!  I might end up knitting a smallish bag for my partner!  Smiley
17  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: how do you make mushrooms appetizing? on: September 27, 2013 08:38:49 AM
I love mushrooms but the white button mushrooms get me to gag every time.  I think it's the fact that they are rather tasteless.

Mushrooms have an earthy taste and they absorb everything you add to 'em.

My favourite thing to do with portabello mushrooms:
-  soak 'em in a mixture of soy sauce, veggie stock, and garlic  (poke holes in both the top and the bottom using a fork)
-  drain and pat 'em dry
-  fry 'em over high heat until the surface is brown
-  eat like a burger!

I also like to add garlic, onions, a little bit of red wine, to cooking mushrooms and puree 'til soft.  It's a good consistency for spreading and tastes good too!
18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / First Time Carving Lino and Finished Product (Monster Hunter Logo) on: September 18, 2013 07:27:19 PM
Okay, I'm loving the details that you can do in lino.  (Although, I ended up stabbing myself twice with dull tools.  Ow.)  It's mounted on wood with a disc of craft foam and felt.

I made a couple of tee shirts with this.  (It's a dragon from Monster Hunter - the Rathalos!)

Finished Product!

20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: 2013 Back to School Lunch-along on: September 13, 2013 10:18:56 PM
I used to do simple bentos for myself in university.

*  pocket sandwiches:  spread filling in center of two slices of bread, squish with other side of a large circle cookie cutter, and then cut it out with the right side.  Can be frozen in multiples.
*  faux fried rice:  cook rice, add frozen veggies, soy sauce, garlic powder.  Stir together and microwave until hot.  Was fast and easy, and can be done with leftover rice.
*  real fruit jam:  cook fruit of choice down, with a little water and sweetener of choice.  It's done when it sticks to a spoon.  (You can also add wine/mead to it.)  Also good for getting rid of slightly soft fruit.
*  preserving colour in fruit/fake Grapples:  Take grape juice (I used white Welch's), and slice up apples.  Stick 'em in the juice, and fish 'em out again.  They taste like the grape juice and don't go brown at all.
*  holding sauce in a seperate container:  I used Kinder Surprise eggs (they are a chocolate egg that has a toy capsule inside), the capsule is really leak proof.  Smiley
*  cornbread muffins:  Use sweet or savory cornbread and add whatever fillings you think will go great with 'em.  I've had chopped up hot dogs in 'em.  The best part is that they tuck nicely into the lunch box and can freeze well as well.  Smiley
