i heart smoothies. the other day i made a smoothie that was surprisingly good. i had a half of a banana, a half a container of lowfat raspberry yogurt, some skim milk and ice cubes. i didnt think the banana would taste that good when mixed with raspberries, but i really liked it. i also take a handful of mixed frozen berries (it comes in a bag, and has strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in it), and add some vanilla yogurt, orange juice, and ice cubes. i got a strawberry icecream flavored smoothie the other day at a local coffee shop, and it was amazing. i really need to find out how they made it.
a bunch of people in here have mentioned putting tomatoes in mac 'n cheese, but i dont think anyone's mentioned ketchup. ketchup and mac 'n cheese just belong together. esp if the mac 'n cheese is from a box, or if it's easy mac. if i come home and am too tired/lazy to cook, i'll make easy mac with a hotdog and ketchup. it's even better with cheese dogs. i discovered that you dont even need to cook the hotdog/cheesedog seperately. just cut it up and throw it in the bowl before you put the easy mac in the microwave, the cook, add powdered cheese packet, stir, and top with ketchup. you can choose whether or not to stir the ketchup in; i, personally, dont.
oh man there are so many good sandwich ideas on here. I'm definitely going to have to try a lot of these. I agree that putting chips in sandwiches is good. when I was little, I used to put the french fries in my burger from my happy meal as well. I love pretty much all kinds of wraps. my school makes an awesome chicken Caesar wrap. It's just a wheat wrap with grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese (i believe), and Caesar dressing. also, Italian sandwiches. I think they're a Maine thing, because no one outside of this area seems to know what they are. I could be wrong though. They taste best when bought at Amato's, but the home made version can be good too. You take a sub roll, one of the long skinny ones, and slice it on the top. Then you put the following in it: ham, American cheese, chopped onions (white ones, not red), sliced green peppers, slices of deli pickles, slices of tomatoes, and sliced Greek olives (but i pick those off, cause i don't like them). Then you pour some olive oil over it and put some salt and pepper on it. They're best when the roll is a little soggy from the oil. a little messy, but really good.
i saw this recipe earlier today, and thought i'd try making them. well, i realized after mixing some stuff together that i didnt have enough butter. so, i used 'i can't believe it's not butter'. that stuff lives up to it's name. everything came out really good. great recipe!
i took four years of latin in highschool, and i dont mean to be rude, but "Ego amo tu" isnt quite right. to be more accurate, the latin for I love you is "te amo". Amo means I love, Te means you. tu also means you, but grmatically, it should be "te" here.
ok everyone! the costume is complete! went to the fabric store, cut, and sewed it all this afternoon. didnt use a pattern, because 1. there arent acorn costume patterns, and 2. even if there were, i wouldnt have used one because i dislike following patterns. it took about 3/4 hours to do everything.she was so excited and happy when it was done. i even let her pick out the fabric ($2/yard sale fabric for the bottom), and push the pedal on the sewing machine. she also especially loved the plush stomach. she'd randomly say "i'm fat!" and laugh when she was wearing it. here it is!
when she wears it for halloween, she'll have brown pants, shoes and shirt, of course.
