1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Lunch ideas on: January 12, 2008 11:27:43 AM
My husband doesn't have access to a microwave while he's at work, but I'd like to figure out lunches for him that aren't a sandwich or salad, so he can have some variation. Smiley

Any ideas or recipes anyone would have would be greatly appreciated.  Things that need to be refridgerated wouldn't be a problem, but nothing that needs to be heated.  We don't have a lot of money, and it's not particularly healthy for him to eat out all the time, but I'm having trouble coming up with ideas by myself.

Thanks! Cheesy
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making jean legs wider? on: August 05, 2007 06:52:07 PM
So, I'm seven months pregnant, and my sister just gave me some of her old maternity pants, because I can't afford my own and she's had all the kids she's going to.

The only problem with them is that they have tapered legs, and I wear bootcut or flares normally.  I found a tutorial on how to make bellbottoms, but I still had some questions:

Do I try to rip the seam open, or do I cut the dang thing off and just sew up all the rough edges?

Do I need to use a special kind of thread, since I'm working with jeans?

Roughly how much do heavy-duty needles cost?

Should I learn how to use my mother's serger, or would an ordinary sewing machine work just fine?  I'm worried about the edges of the jeans fraying, so I was wondering if using the serger would be better.

Thanks much!
