1741  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Once a Month Cooking - Freezer Meals - Need Help!!!! on: December 01, 2006 02:40:20 PM
You might want to consider just making some basic things in bulk once a month that you can use for a variety of dishes.  Things that take a lot of time but that are versatile are good candidates for this.  Stock would be a good example of this.  You could make a big pot of it and freeze it in small quantities.  You can use it for soup (add veggies and maybe some cooked chicken) or the base for sauces or in lots of dishes. 

If time is the main issue, you might want to invest in a crock pot.  You can do all the prep work the night before, toss it in the pot in the morning and let it slow cook all day while you're at work.  When you get home dinner is all ready for you.  FlyLady's site has more info and lots of crock pot recipes.
1742  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Kraft is Krap: Guacamole? on: December 01, 2006 02:19:11 PM
huh... Well, I'm not sure about a lawsuit, but I do think they are being dishonest.  They should probably have to call it "guacamole flavored dip", or something like that.

Since I grew up in southern california near plenty of avocado orchards, I despise any "guacamole" that isn't nearly pure avocado and generally any store bought guacamole at all.  (I know, I'm an avocado snob. Tongue)  It's so easy to make your own.

Here's my dad's super simple recipe:

mashed avocado
juice from half a lemon
a bit of finely chopped garlic and onion
salt to taste

mix it all up together and top with shredded cheese (cheese is optional).

you can also add chopped tomatoes and crushed red pepper, if you want.

The hands on this one look better than the previous one.  I really recommend drawing doing some drawings of just hands.  They're very expressive pretty complex all by themselves.  Master artists did lots and lots of studies of hands to get them right. 
1744  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Will this sell? on: December 01, 2006 01:59:12 PM
I agree with lupinbunny, I love the face but I'm not too crazy on the frame.  But, yeah, I think it will sell.  It's very cool.

Very cool experiment.  I think that play is the most important part of the art process.  I'd love to see where you take this idea.

ps. I really the first one the most. 
1746  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you use as a knitting bag? on: December 01, 2006 01:48:56 PM
I use this bag that I got when my inlaws were cleaning out gramma's parents house to sell.  Great aunt Mary was going into a retirement home and didn't want it, so I claimed it.  I don't know what it's called but it's like a small (14" x 14" x 7"), teal travel bag from I think the 60s.  I'm so diggin' it right now! Cheesy

When I was in high school I covered the back of my door with cereal box covers.  That would give you lots of color plus it's fun and cheap.  My favorites were the ones from different countries.  Smiley  If I did it again I think I would frame just a few really cool ones.

Help out a confused new knitter?

I am so lost with this bit.
BO 6 st beginning of next 2 rows.
Does it mean that I have to BO the first 6 st on each end?

BO = bind off.
this site has a good glossary and videos to teach technique.
1750  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Madison's hat with link to pattern -- easy Fair Isle winter hat! on: November 29, 2006 07:55:46 PM
Very cute!  It's such a perfect christmas hat.... I love it.  You did a great job on the stranded knitting. 

ps. I can't believe how cold it's been!! The last couple nights its gotten below freezing here in Sacramento.  Crazyness.
