3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What are your bad sewing habits? on: August 29, 2008 08:10:05 PM
On the pins in the mouth thing, wouldn't it be worse to put the points outward. 

Lol, that image took me back, I didn't know I did this until I caught my learning  daughter at nine with three or four pins in her mouth.  I asked why do you have those pins in your mouth?  You always do that, Mom.  I don't think I've done that in many years since I was afraid she may swallow one.  Talk about learning from your kids?

My worst sewing habit is misjudging the tip of a pin and ending up serging them.  It's expensive to replace the cutter blade.  I've had to replace it twice, I'd say that's the worst ever.

hanging head in shame, all my walls are so boring. . . beiges and I'm terrified to do something cool. . . These intense colors look so awesome.  Too bad I'm such a scaredy cat.  Beautiful.

Orange is my least favorite color, next to olive green.  This is absolutely gorgeous though and seems like it would be cheery and energetic.  I would positively love this craft room.

Thank you for your lovely comments.  It's not perfect but my daughter is thrilled with it.   Although she teased about the pigs,  LOL.  I once had a hundred and some displayed in my livingroom.

A friend recently taught me to make Carne asada,  she uses cumin and many different seasonings, along with the juice from half an orange.  I'm not a fan of citrus fruits but since she soaks the meat overnight in a beer and the seasonings it's pretty good.  I just used the neck of  a beer, salt and pepper, garlic and I liked it quite well, even cooked in the broiler.

I vote for the cucumber.

Allergies are such a bummer.  I am also allergic to iodine, and corn, thankfully not actual spices.  I sympathise with anyone who is allergic to anything, especially when going to a pot luck since you feel you have to try everything so as to not hurt anyone's feelings.  Are you also allergic to salt, pepper, cilantro, parsley, onions and garlic or just the chili powder in corn starch they use for seasoning tacos?

I have found anything is good in a flour tortilla.  Even most bread in America has corn in it somewhere, and if it's packaged food, unless it's organic.  I use salt, pepper, garlic and onions a lot to season things.  That's why I was wondering about those things.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Canning Apricots on: July 12, 2008 01:44:58 PM
You could always sell some of those yummy fresh tree ripened apricots at the farmer's market so you don't have to can them all.  I wish I lived where apricots grew. . . those hard rocks in the supermarket with an apricot skin and pit, just don't ever taste like the ones off our tree when I was a kid.

Good job on the canning. It's a bunch of work and my Gramma didn't peel hers.  Although I remember how much time peeling peaches and tomatoes took, although she blanched them first.  Peeling makes even more time in the kitchen.
