1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Resin Knitting Needles - TUTORIAL ON PAGE 6! - on: February 05, 2009 08:06:42 PM
So, uh, if they're sturdy enough for knitting, would they be sturdy enough for hairsticks? Sturdy enough for someone with thick, waist-length hair?

They're pretty, but I can't knit too well.

Those are really cute. If you wanted to handle them less, maybe next time just stick the wire through the clay as if it were a bead and then bake with the wire in?

At the beginning of the semester, I made this pasta salad that was really good.
Boil half a pound of whole wheat penne or other bite-size pasta.
While water is boiling, chop and steam 1 broccoli crown, 1 red pepper, and 2 medium carrots.
Drain and rinse pasta in cold water until cool.
Mix pasta, veggies, and a can of drained and rinsed cannellini (white) beans.
Add 1/2 cup of Italian dressing (I used dregs from three different open bottles - worked fine)

This kept well, was a balanced meal that only dirtied two pots and a strainer (use one of the pots to mix everything together), and tastes good cold (helpful, as my lunch break is 15 minutes between classes).

Red Wine Risotto
1 1/4 cups Arborio rice                        1 cup FROZEN chopped onion

1 cup Red wine                                   chopped fresh basil

in a 4 qt slow cooler stir rice onion & oil. then stir in brth and wine.
cook on high with cover for 2 hrs.

This looks really good, and the food network one looks interesting, too. Thanks!
I love risotto but hate, hate, hate stirring it.

I just tried this tonight, topped with some sauteed baby bellas. Soooo good! Thank you so much - I'm gonna be messing around with this recipe for quite some time!

Soymilk, cereal, and OJ are very important because starting my morning without them is difficult.
I also keep a loaf of ww bread in the fridge along with peanut butter and jelly for when I'm really stuck.

Other staples include rice, pasta, jarred pasta sauce, canned beans, tofu, and eggs. I'm trying to get into potatoes more lately because they're cheap and filling.

I also buy bagged salad and go through at least two bags a week (I live by myself and I'm a busy grad student - there is no way I'm spending my precious time shredding lettuce). Onions, carrots, broccoli, red peppers, and mushrooms are also pretty versatile - good for both stirfries, steamed veggies, dipping in stuff, omelettes (well, not the carrots or broccoli), or a veggie side with pasta (or sauce!). When tomatoes and zucchini are in season, I buy those compulsively. Crusty bread and tomato all smeared in olive oil? Standard summer dinner. For fruit I'm pretty boring, mostly apples, oranges, and bananas.

I keep jarred minced garlic, several spices, sundried tomatoes, a pepper mill, pine nuts, ketchup, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and balsamic vinegar around to flavor things with. I also really like a lot of jarred sauces and bottled dressings (Trader Joe's knockoff of Annie's Goddess dressing is divine). I cook mostly with olive oil, and I also keep flour and yeast around so I can make bread. I also usually have a sixpack of beer and a bottle each of red and white wine in the fridge - they make a lot of difference flavor-wise in soups and sauces.

Thanks. I'll look into it. Smiley
I found some good stuff on recipezaar, too, including something involving black beans and mangoes.
I am kind of guessing that most soups can be made this way, too.

So I just bought a 4-qt crock pot. The recipe book it came with is full of recipes for chickens or pulled pork or stuff like that. While I do eat chicken (ideally only twice a week or so), cooking a whole one isn't what I'm after.
For those of you with crock pots, what kinds of warm veggie delicacies are waiting for you when you come home from work?
