Yeah, even though I didn't know what else to use in it to clean it out, mild detergent soap was the best thing I had. I certainly wasn't going to use any other harsher chemicals. And I really did make sure to rinse it out thoroughly several, several, several times.
I also did drill holes in the top of the lid, so he could get plenty of air. Right now, I'm having trouble with my camera, so bear with me please.
In a regular lava lamp, I don't know what the liquid is (maybe just water), but the colored stuff is wax. Mine was more of a glitter lamp. I poured the glittery liquid in a plastic bucket with a tight fitting lid, and it's still sitting out in my garage since I don't know what to do with it. And since the liquid is not just water, I didn't want to put it down the drain.
Once again, I waited too long for X-mas shopping this yr. I've got everyone covered, except for my b/f. I need ideas for him. He recently lost his 2 avocado trees, and I was going to replace them. Just as I thought, it's the wrong time of yr. to find avocado trees, though. He's 42 and works for FedEx, though he hates his job. He loves music, all kinds, but already has too many cd's. I'm seriously talking in the thousands. He loves cars, action & car movies. (Particularly, anything Clint Eastwood and Dirty Harry.) I was going to get him the new Dirty Harry collection on DVD, but I think he just got it. And like me, he's kinda a pack rat, so I don't want to make or get him anything junkie or useless to just lay around the house.
So, all I can think of is finding some sort of car memorbilia. He loves Corvettes or anything from GM, and BF Goodrich tires (that's my boy!). And I was thinking some sort of memorbilia, cuz he like old school stuff. Like his watch he wears was his father's back in the 60's etc. He like antiques... Ya know, just old school stuff and cars. Didn't mean to ramble, but any help I would appreciate! Thank you, ahead of time.
I made them. I used Pillsbury's pre-made french bread dough that comes in a container similar to their crescent rolls. I just took chunks of the dough & rolled them into balls and put them on cookie sheet to bake. I should've shaped them more than I did, because I don't think they came out very bun shaped. Some even reminded me of cream puffs. Also, I dunno if it was because of the kinda bread I used or if I baked them a little too long, but they came out kinda hard. Ya know, more like crusty french bread, but they were good and soft on the inside. I just now realized that I forgot to put sesame seeds on it. I don't think mine turned out nearly as nice as the girl's who did the original post, but I just wanted to try it so bad. It was fun. I'm gonna mess with it some more tomorrow. The onion rings were a pain though. I couldn't find your plain, raw pearl onions at my grocery store, they've had then before but not when I was looking for them, of course. So, I had to settle for the ones in a jar. They were pickled, which added a good flavor to then end product. It was just time consuming to slice pearl onions, dip the slices in milk, dip them in the breading, and then deep fry them. You couldn't do too many at a time because it was such a pain to grab and flip the tiny little things in the oil, the first ones I did burnt. My boyfriend liked his burger and rings though. He said it was cute, and he did eat it.
I made this a lil while ago, and even included onion rings. My buns didn't come out the way I wanted, but I'm going to work on it some more tomorrow. I left this burger "blank" for my boyfriend who's fixing to come over. He can fix it the way he wants it. I do have the tiny tomatos, onions, and pickles, etc. He called me on his break a lil while ago, and I told him I was making cheeseburgers and onion rings. I told him I was gonna fix him one, and he was like... No, I've been eating all day. I told him I was gonna make him one anyways, because by the time he got here he would probably be hungry again. Ha. Let me know what you think...
