2111  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: crockpot oatmeal question on: June 30, 2010 09:48:57 PM
I've never made oatmeal with egg, or in a crockpot. But yeah, to add protien, add chopped almonds or walnuts or pecans. I do like that.
Milk instead of water. You could also add dry powdered milk, but I don't know how that would affect the taste. Maybe make a small batch, and add just a spoonfull, see how that works? Or soy powder-never added it into oatmeal, but that would up the protien, too.
2112  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: June 30, 2010 09:42:29 PM
It's funny you say it's a Dutch thing-dad's grandparents are from Germany! Hey, if folks can eat rice pudding, why not with butter and brown sugar? But mmm, rice pudding...
And mmm, rice in general. So many ways to use it.Stir fry, rice & veggies, casserole, and I will fill a tortilla with cold spanish rice and eat it. Add rice to soup, or to chili. And rice is cheap-yay!

Did you say you liked buckles/leather and technology? Cause I guess that could be "military". I wonder if they have Western?

Staar84, I think Western Steampunk stuff would be sooo awesome. And, nice icon. Mad Scientists rule.

Still debating, still tempted.
I like doing collage type stuff. I made one altered book and liked it. I enjoy making new jewelry out of broken jewelry. Yes, squirtguns can be punked up. I did one as a space gun, and built a steam one from odds and ends. I like revamping/reworking/decorating things-like bags, boxes, ect. Can't sew-I used to do cross stitch and embroidery, but I squint too much now! Smiley Can't knit or crochet, but must learn as I love pretty yarn. For some reason I love rusty metal bits....

UnPaper towels? That's brilliant. I never thought of that before! Beats my rag bag. I have a new project on my list now-thanks!

Fun! I just took it, too! I'm 36% Elegant, 69% Technological, 20% Historical, 16% Adventurous and 49% Playful!
I'm the Gadgeteer-

You are the Gadgeteer, the embodiment of steampunk technology.  Ironically, many of the things that most define your style are probably too large to easily carry about, but given the opportunity you would prefer to be seen surrounded by boiler engines, gear-driven calculators, and incredible automata.  Of all the steampunk fashion styles, you place the greatest emphasis on technological accessories, and you are the most likely to create elaborate gadgets that are as much a part of your outfit as your clothes.  You probably have goggles, but unlike most people you consider them to be for more than decoration.  Whereas most people might look odd carrying a satchel of tools around, for  you they may well be essential.  Above all, you remind everyone that what sets the genre apart from Victoriana is simply the level of technology.</p>

Thanks for the quiz link!

I just discovered this thread. Wow! But I think it'll take a wee while to get through all the pages...Smiley
I saw Frugal Fridays-what other days do you do, and what are they? So many neat ideas.
Congratualtions to the crafster with the baby on the way! Try to discourage people from buying baby outfits if you can. My girl was given oodles of them-and babies grow so fast, she never got to wear all of them. Or at least gently suggest they buy ahead, in larger sizes? People have a hard time resisting cute things.
I could see making the plastic fabric that people do with plastic bags and an iron, and using that to make the back of baby bibs, also using an old terry cloth towel for the front-so absorbant for spills, and still keeping the mess from leaking through onto the clothes?
It seems every baby shower I've been to is clothes and stuffed toys. I've switched to giving children's books, if I don't know of something special they need.
I had a rolling wheeled baby cart-a bit like a bassinet, but not basket like. It was rectangular like a mattress, had mesh sides, about as tall as my bed, not very big. It was wonderful when she was tiny. It was next to the bed at night, great for feedings and cuddles. It moved with me from room to room during the day. My mom bought it at a yard sale, and I gave it away when my dd outgrew it.
I read back far enough to see dryer balls mentioned, something made from old sweaters? What are they?
Oh, if you have a collapsible wooden drying rack for clothes, here's an odd tip I found in a book. During the winter, she'd hang wet laundry on it and put it in her child's room, instead of running a dehumidifier. Said it worked like a charm.
Looking forward to joining the frugally goodness!

2119  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What are your favorite salad toppings/ingredients? on: June 26, 2010 09:47:41 PM
I love tomato salad, and I never follow the recipe. Slice tomatos. Mix basalmic vinegar and olive oil. I've used red wine vinegar, too. And canola oil if that was all I had. I add salt, pepper, basil-I never have fresh on hand like I should. And dried minced onion. Plenty of it. Flavorful without being too strong, especially if I don't feel like dicing an onion! I let it sit a while before nomming. I dump it in a bowl, liquid and all, and devour.
Yum.

And I keep frozen peas on hand-nice extra salad veggie, for tossed salad. 
2120  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Spagetti squash help, please? on: June 26, 2010 09:22:54 PM
I like spagetti squash! I cooked half of it in the oven, half in the microwave. Taste about the same either way.  It's neat how it shreds, and it does shred easier after sitting a few minutes. I had mine with lots of butter and salt. Yummy! Pasta sauce next time, for sure.
And it'll be easier the next time I deal with one. Yay-a new veggie to add to the repetoire. Thanks for all the tips, everyone!
