1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Help with 4th of July BBQ on: July 02, 2007 03:12:42 PM
If you want potatoes but not just salad, you could always go the easy route and buy potato chips.  I also like to do a bean dish.  Here's a fairly easy one.

1 pound of bacon, fried, crumbled
1 pound of ground meat, I used turkey, unless I'm really craving beef
1 can of Ranch Style Beans
1 can of your favorite Chili
1 can of Tomatoes with Green Chilies
2 cans of Butter Beans
1 can of Great Northern Beans
1 can of pork and beans
dash of tabasco, more if you like it hot
1 cup brown sugar
1 T red wine vinegar
3 T liquid smoke
1 cup catsup
1 onion chopped
Dump it all in the crock pot for 2 hours on high.

I've been freezer cooking for about 2 years now.  The things I've learned is that just about anything can be frozen.  I stay away from potatoes, unless I substitute prefrozen ones, like tatertots or hashbrowns.  I also try to undercook all my noodles, otherwise they get soggy.  If you have a recipe that you want to freeze, just make it, freeze part of it, then reheat it in a few days to see how it turns out.  Sometimes I'll even just prepare it, w/o cooking it, then I'll thaw it and finish making it, that way they don't get dried out by being cooked twice.

Here's some pics of the Barbie wrap pants.
This is the pants laid out flat. The elastic and snap are on the left side, the ribbon is on the right.

This is the elastic side laid out flat.

This is the ribbon side.

Here's Barbie putting the pants on.  The elastic side wraps around the front and snaps in the back.

The ribbon side wraps around from the back and ties into a bow in the front.

Barbie modeling them.

ok, I found a pair of the Barbie wrap pants.  The elastic is in the waist on the under wrap.  Instead of using ribbon, string, whatever, and tying it up in the back, it's elastic, with a fastener (snap in this case).  So, the fabric would have to be wide enough to go all the way around the waist, and having some gather to it would help.  Don't know which way I'm gonna try doing it for myself, yet.  I'm still trying to get my craft room put back together.  I can almost get to my fabric stash.  When I find the batteries for the camera, I'll post a pic of the Barbie pants so you can see how they work.

I would bet that if you called them Wizard Wands you wouldn't get any copyright crap.  You could also put something in you description about how your wands are so great that even Harry Potter/Merlin/Gandolf could use it.

I'm not new to scrapbooking per say, but I'm a newbie to crops.  So my question is...What do you take to a crop?  Bare minimum?  Fully loaded?  What to do cart it all in?

One of the first things I ever made was a pair of wrap pants for my Barbie.  I put elastic in the back part instead of a tie.  I'll have to see if I can find those pants in my girls barbie junk and see how I did it!  I've so been meaning to make myself some new pants.  Nothing fits!  I hate how chunky I'm getting!  Blah!  Anyway...can't wait to try that pattern!
