1  "Mexican" Mac & Cheese in Recipes and Cooking Tips by i_heart_duckies on: October 22, 2007 09:08:26 PM
Hey there everyone!  I came up with this tonight for dinner and thought I'd share the recipe.  Hubby and I both love Mexican food but eventually you get sick of the same old same old, so I threw some stuff together.  We thought it was pretty good.

Mexican Mac & Cheese

1 pound (or close to it) ground lean hamburger
1 package of taco seasoning
1 box of pasta (I used shells because that's what I had)
1 jar of salsa con queso
1 medium size can of black beans
about 3/4 of a cup of frozen corn

Brown the hamburger and add the taco seasoning and water as called for on the back of the package.  Meanwhile boil the pasta until it's done.  In a colander drain the black beans and put the corn on top of the beans.  Then dump the pasta on top to drain it and heat up the beans and corn.  Put the pasta/beans/corn mixture back into the pasta pot and add the salsa con queso.  Mix in the hamburger and serve.  This made a LOT for hubby and I.  Looks like we're both having leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

I thought I'd join in too.  I just started my shawl yesterday, but having no kids and not being able to work till I get permanent residence here in Canada... well let's just say I have a LOT of time on my hands.  lol

I'm doing the snowdrop pattern too, but I'm making some modifications.  Basically I'm doing a different edging and I'm using misti alpaca laceweight and US size 2 needles. I'm going to have to do more repeats of the snowdrop pattern to get a shawl that's big enough.  Here's what I've got so far (7 snowdrop repeats across)

I put a piece of paper behind where I have it pinned out so you can see the pattern.

3  My first sock and a psp eating monster... in Knitting: Completed Projects by i_heart_duckies on: January 23, 2007 09:12:04 PM
So I finally finished my first sock, after ripping it out three times till I got the right size (apparently my mother doesn't wear woman sized socks, she wears 8/10 year old size socks).  These were made on size 7 needles (ribbing) and size 8 needles (the rest of the sock) with bernat berella 4.  I love the colors of this sock.  I can't wait to start the other one, but since I misread the instructions I need to buy another ball before I can start.  Anyway, on with the picture....

And, because I needed practice working with the dpns again after so long, I made my hubby a psp eating monster.  Size 8 needles and caron simply soft.  Oh how I love this yarn.  I just started a pair of fingerless gloves with it and my mom crocheted an afghan for me with it.

And with his "brains" poking out.

Pardon the wee wee shot, he was being a brat and not posing properly so my sister in law just had to hold him up.

(edit: I titled this picture in my blog "OH THE INDIGNITY"  because that's the look he had on his face throughout the whole ordeal.  lol)

5  Chico's Happy Feet in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by i_heart_duckies on: November 14, 2006 06:43:27 PM
My furry "nephew" hates going out in the snow, it makes his feet hurt.  As soon as my sister in law Tammy told me about poor Chico and his cold feet I just had to do something.  So I made what I like to call "Chico's Happy Feet".

I'll post pics of Chico in action when I have some.

6  big bad doggy coat in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by i_heart_duckies on: August 16, 2005 10:48:06 PM
So I decided my fiance's dog needed a coat cause he gets cold when we go for our late night walks.  I used a combination of the doggy coat pattern in SNBN and the skull chart from the beaded wristbands.  I changed the pattern to suit my tastes a little bit too.  Ok, on to the pictures

Bear in his coat.  (ignore my so sexy pjs.  lol)

Closeup of the skull

Next time I am definitely duplicate stitching any pattern I want on because I absolutely hated sewing in all of those ends after doing intarsia for the skull.  Tell me what you think!
