1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Re: Craft Challenge #35 - Craft Your Resolution - Due Feb 1 - Feb 5 2009 on: January 16, 2009 12:48:33 AM
My resolution is to save money and lose weight by not eating at the university caff and bringing my own damn lunch instead, so maybe I could make a soft toy muffin with an eeeeevil face on it or something...

Those look righteous! I've started making my own based on yours. I couldn't find the trinket boxes anywhere so I just cut out the top of two beer cans (Newcastle Brown of course Grin) and used those. It takes a bit of work to cut them out and sand them but it seems to be working.
3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Kind Of Shoes Do You Wear To School?[Or Wherever Else?] on: August 24, 2008 03:44:57 AM
At the moment I've got some huge chunky army surplus boots (previously owned by some German paratroopers I think) with neon yellow laces. Only cost me about 20 quid in all and they're really comfy Grin
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Not a Bugatti Veyron because IDK what the copyrights are for this sort of thing on: July 27, 2008 02:57:16 PM
I saw this car on Top Gear winning a race against a plane (admittedly flown by James May, but still Grin) and wanted one. Unfortunately they're about 800,000 quid and I can't drive yet, so I made a plush one instead. Smiley

It's a bit shorter and fatter than an actual Veyron so I can cuddle it Cheesy

Nope, just a Nightwish fan... Embarrassed Wish I could speak it though, it's a beautiful-sounding language. So far I can only do English and French. Sad

Cauliflower is pretty mild and can be blended with a little cream cheese to make a mock mashed potato.

Ooh, that reminds me, the same goes for butter beans, although the texture's a little different.
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Any ideas for meals with fish that aren't so fishy!? on: April 16, 2008 10:58:36 AM
I like mackerel - it is fairly strong but in a meaty sort of way and you can tone it down with other flavours.
My favourite two things to do with it:

Mackerel pt
Flake the meat off a smoked fillet of mackerel and mash it up with some horseradish sauce, a little lemon juice and enough cream cheese to give the consistency you like. It's nice on toast with a salad as a light meal, or a bigger helping on toast with more veg and things as a main meal.

Citrus-y mackerel
Get a whole mackerel (make sure to take the guts out if they're still in there) and cut slits down the length of it, about an inch or two apart. Put slices of orange or lemon inside the slits and bake it (you can spread a little marmalade on it just before it finishes cooking to give it a nice glaze).

Aw, congratulations to them! Grin
That's odd, it's the other way round here... I'm in Durham and most of my friends are southerners!

You could try crumbling some crispy bacon or toasted nuts into the vegetables. This works well in certain soups or on dark leafy greens (it actually got me to like Brussels sprouts!).
Has he tried salads? There's tons of salad recipes on here and on other sites with different vegetables and dressings.
Seconding cooking vegetables into sauces and things as well - you can chop things up small and put them in chillis or pasta sauces or curries. Try saag gosht (lamb in a spinach sauce) or dhansak (tons of lentils and/or chickpeas). You can make them spicier to help cover up the vegetable taste.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Painting jello? on: April 16, 2008 09:55:35 AM
Hmm... not really sure to be honest... would painting food colouring onto the Jello, once it's set, with a thin paintbrush work? Or arranging sweets (like strawberry laces for the major blood vessels or something) in the bottom of the mould before pouring the Jello in?
