Cookies!  My sister is always sending her boyfriend cookies - and he's in New York and she's in California.  Pack them in an air tight tin and they'll be reasonably fresh when they get there.

Also, energy bars are great - like balance bars and cliff bars and the like.  They're great for college students because you can throw them in your bag and you have an instant energy boost where ever you go.

Luckie-Strike, how well does this work for you?  Does the food taste as good as if you made it the same day?

Ooh! I like 'em! 

* The pics are a bit big.  I like seeing them all, but maybe you could make them a bit smaller?
1744  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Taming the winter hair frizzies. on: December 02, 2006 12:54:12 AM
Hey everyone,

I know there are a lot of threads on this board about taming frizzy hair, but I recently moved to a place where it gets a bit chilly in the winters Tongue.  I have wavy/curly hair and I'm ok at taming the frizzies if I take a shower in the morning and then just let it air dry, but that's not really an option here.  I was wondering, how do you keep your hair in check while battling the cold, dry air of winter?  And can any of you recommend a good diffuser?

I have really long hair (almost to my butt) right now but I'm seriously considering chopping it short so I don't have to deal with it Tongue.

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.

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. 
1748  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. 
1750  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!
