My mom makes this recipe and its really good!It doesnt take to long either,but has alot of chopping involed.(I usually help with that part.)
All you do is cut up a link of polska kelbasa(two if your feeding more than 6 people).Potatoes.(two potatoes per person your feeding)chop up two bell peppers and one onion.Cook in frying pan or electric skillet for 30-40 mins or until potatoes are done.

136  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: non-cheesy scrapbooks on: November 17, 2004 05:50:19 PM
All right, I'll say it.  I'm a Creative Memories Consultant.  Hehe.  I haven't ever mentioned it before, because I dislike advertising, and I really only signed up to get all the cool tools at a low price.  CM is cheesy in the extreme sometimes.  But the quality is extremely high, and I have never purchased paper-cutting tools that work as well as these do. 

That said, it's put me into a position to know some stuff about some things.  Acid free is good.  Lignin free is also good.  You can buy black, white or "natural" pages, which opens up a lot to different styles.  And all the CM pages are buffered, so you don't even have to worry about what you use for embellishment, as long as it is not in direct contact with the photo.  (They claim to be the only company who sells buffered pages, but I have no idea if that is true.)  Now, I'm not trying to talk anyone into CM products.  I LOVE the idea of hand-made scrapbooks.  And honestly, I don't have a single scrapbook myself that is made entirely of CM products.  (A supposed nono.  It isn't against the rules, but is highly discouraged.)  Just because I started scrapping when I was pregnant with my daughter (who was it who associated scrapbooks with parent/child things?) doesn't mean her scrapbook should be pink and prissy.  Nothing wrong with cute, but I'm an individual, and so should be my memory books, right?  But, sometimes erring on the side of caution IS good to an extent.  I don't think it would be hard to make a scrapbook which would fit CM pages, and you'd get all your own style with the safety of archival papers. 

A scrapbook should be as unique as the individuals and memories it houses.  That's what I tell all my customers, and if it costs me a $4.95 sticker sale because they decide to go down to Hobby Lobby and get the neon pink alphabet ones instead, I'm happy.  The instructions that I get from the unit leaders to lead consumers into conformity sits hard with me.  Go, be free.  Put laser-cut CM pink bunnies with Stickopotumus hockey gear stickers if it suits you.  Use vintage wrapping paper as part of your picture mats.  Make origami hats for all the adults in your office holiday party photos.  And remember:  Though it seems the products available ARE cheesy, it all depends on how you use them!

I totally agree with the last paragraph in her post.Some of the products available are a little cheesy but it does depend on how u use them.
p.s-the using vintage wrapping paper as a photo mat is a good idea!lol.atleast I think it is and if its the right type of paper for the pic it could look good!
137  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: irritating comments on: November 16, 2004 08:00:26 PM
Hi.Im 13 and I crochet I learned at an afterschool activity thing.Girls at my school are very into doing crafts.We would get in trouble for doning lanyards in class. Wink Some people look at me kindof weird when I'm at Micheals buying yarn but most people tihnk its cool that I crotchet and I like to do it.Although ive only chrocheted a couple good projects(braclets)and only know how to do single and double crochet,so im not very good at it.and since I live in southern california I havent really had a reason to crochet something like a scarf because I probly wouldnt wear it.I cant believe people say mean tihngs to you about crocheting.I see nothing wrong with someone of your age crocheting,its better than buying the stuff for triple the price that you could make it for.
