Soup. Canned tomatos, a chopped onion-or dried onion bits if I must. Any old veggies in the fridge-hey, too old for salad still works for soup. I saute the veggies a bit first. What? There's a can of corn and a can of mushrooms on the shelf? Score!Whatever spices sound good. Hot sauce packets, or even barbeque sauce, or bouillon, or a couple of seasoning packages from ramen. Not all of the above! But seasoning of some kind.Taste as you go. Ballest-noodles, rice, beans and or potatos.Even wrinkled, sprouted potatos can be peeled down enough for use, you know. It's called-"It's healthy, dammit" soup, and can be suprisingly tasty. I'll even make it when not broke, then I upgrade it a bit.
Warm cooked white rice with butter and brown sugar for breakfast, mmm. Rice is cheap, this is yummy.
And yay ramen, with any veggie I can find tossed in.
Okay...I impulsively bought a spagetti squash at the grocery-what do I do with it? Anybody out there ever cook these? If I can figure out how, and get a recipe or two, I'll keep buying them. Didn't cost much, and hey-veggies are healthy. Thanks!
What are the bags made of? Paper? Does your city recycle paper? I suppose anyone who makes handmade paper out of old paper could use a few, but you're talking lots.
When I worked at a store that was closing, all the paper bags were going to be dumpstered. I brought them home, and mulched my garden! A very thick layer of paper. Once it was watered, it stayed. I dumped a thin layer of leaves, grass clippings on top. Didn't take much. Smothered the weeds, and biodegraded nicely.
That's why a candle area would be nice. They're posted all over the board. Perhaps a subsection in the Housewares/Interior design board? Like you say, they are there, in Misc, in bath and beauty, ect. And-I've made a couple of candles, but never soap. I don't know how much overlap there is. I've made a candle or two, but soap is a whole different animal. *shrugs* I still think a board someday would be nifty.
Wow. Beautiful. And thanks for the in process pics-not that I have any skill at wire wrapping-yet! But it was neat to see how it came together. I looove taking apart old jewelry. Goodwill is my friend. I'm always digging through the odd and end and broken bin they sometimes have. Again, wow!
