Any ideas on keeping them tasty but less sugary? I'll be making them for me and the DD, but DH is diabetic so will abstain. I can use splenda. When I make dry granola I use applesauce, so I can cut down on oil and honey. But if anyone has any other tips I'd love to hear them!

Sigh, I never finished my scarf for last month. Oh, well, the fabric moved from being stash to being a WIP-that's progress, right?
And purple, for the home? I've been amassing purple fabric for a quilt for forever. And..I am so embarased to say this...My sis bought me a sewing machine, and it's still in the box. I have to unclutter big time before I can set it up and use it. Plus, I've been avoiding it because I'll have to teach myself how to sew, and I keep coming up with reasons why I'm just too busy.
But all the cute thing you all keep posting are really inspiring!

I recieved from littlehajerika today! And I love love love what she made! It'll be a few days before I can post pictures-my computer is in the shop and I'm borrowing my husbands. Partner, if you want to post any pics, you can. Otherwise I should have them posted by friday.
I was spoiled!
And her package is finally on its way there, it went out today! Thanks for being patient. You were awesome to swap with.

Oh, my mom made them just the same way! Oh so yummy! Leftover mashed potatos always became potato pancakes, and leftover baked or boiled potatos become hash browns. I think I need to make a batch of potato pancakes this week.

I'll put a bagel in the toaster, then layer on sandwich meat and cheese, and nuke it just long enough to melt the cheese a little. Or, I'll poach an egg and use that instead.
Love smoothies.
Love steel cut oats, but don't make then often due to time. I add a little brown sugar and butter to mine, and maybe some chopped nuts.
I did something different this morning, though. I'll make oatmeal, not instant. The stuff in the big cardboard canister. Usually I'll add raisens and chopped pecans, milk,sugar, cinnamon. But today-it was one of those days. I hadn't been to the grocery so no milk, but I did have a big tub of vanilla yogurt to use up. I also had one small apple that needed to be eaten.
I used 1/4 cup oats, about the same amount vanilla yogurt, peeled the small apple and chopped it and threw it in, and enough water that it was just a little soupy-maybe a quarter cup, probably less. I nuked it 2 minutes, stirred it, and decided to nuke it one more minute. Added sugar and cinnamon. And I wish I'd tasted it before I added the sugar, because it didn't need it! It was so yummy.

Oh, that is nifty!
I just started crafting yesterday, and I think my idea is going to work! So far I'm at the having fun with it stage, not the cussing it out stage.  Grin

Box and bubble wrap both reclaimed from work-yay frugal packaging! I'll package everything tonight, and ship it tomorrow.
1880  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A Green Idea Chain Game 2010 on: May 01, 2011 02:56:59 PM
Hmm...melt them down and make new candles? Find interesting things to pour the wax in, like an old teacup.
Keep a few in a cupboard for emergencies, when the power goes out.
The kid's scout troop made firestarters. Filled the compartments of a cardboard egg carton with dryer lint, and poured some wax  over it, let dry, cut apart the sections.
Use some in art? I know I've seen wax layered over paper before...the paper/art/atc boards might have some good info on this.
Would the candles work okay for luminarias? You know, where you line your walk with candle lit jars and such, where the actual candle itself isn't the focal point? I mean, the luminaria containers can be decorated, or at the least, it's dark out when you use them, so it's the candle glow you see, not the candle?

Oh, the metal trash can lid? Lay it in the yard, maybe dig a little so it's flush with the surface, cover edges with rocks and or plants, and fill with water for the birds.

No good ideas on the statue wings! Shame, it sounds like a nifty find.

What can I do with broken umbrellas? I can take the fabric off and make a bag, but what about the carcass? And what's other good things to do with the fabric?
And the curly wire that holds together a spiral notebook. I can rip out the paper to recycle, but what about that? It's much thicker and heavier than jewelry wire, and all in a spiral....
