got this done about a week ago by Chris Blinston of No Hard Feelings. it's all scabby and very lizard-esque right now, so I'm glad I got a picture of it right after it was finished. :>

Ooh, this looks yummy, I'll have to try it. And it'll help me use up all the cabbage in the fridge...

that's exactly why I made it the first time hahah. I had this big ol' head of cabbage I didn't know what to do with. now I buy cabbage specifically for this soup.
5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Spicy Vegan Cabbage Soup on: January 28, 2010 08:50:23 PM

this has quickly become one of my favorite soups for tons of reasons. it's cheap, vegan, soooo low-fat, spicy, filling, and couldn't be any easier. I'm obsessed. it's like the perfect soup for me.

I put the recipe up on my blog if anyone wants to try it out for themselves: http://dharmayums.wordpress.com/

let me know what you think of it! I'd love to hear your variations.
6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: December 30, 2009 08:07:25 PM
I became vegetarian a little over a month ago for a couple reasons.

1) health: I never really ate that much meat at home (I'm a broke college student and it's just too expensive sometimes), but I realized that whenever I went out to eat everything I would get would be fried, greasy, gross, and terrible for me. now that I'm a vegetarian not only has my list of fast-food options severely dwindled, but whenever I do eat out usually the choices I have are are pretty healthy when put in perspective to what else is offered.

2) quality of meat: I did some research on factory farming and how most animals in America are raised and it scared the crap out of me. I can't even imagine eating something that was raised in such an unhealthy environment, force-fed to extreme amounts, and filled with chemicals. the USDA also does a pretty horrible choice of actually regulating and checking their imports, so I'm sure the meat that comes from out of the country is no better.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / the 15 minute t-shirt dress! on: August 12, 2009 07:27:46 PM
I got this gangsta XL shirt from an Anchor Blue that was closing down for $6. the print on it was so badass I couldn't resist, and I knew it would make an awesome dress. tonight I finally got around to cutting it up and I was right; it makes a totally hot dress! I took some pictures for a mini-tutorial in case anyone's bored and wants to make one of these. :>

what you'll need!
-a t-shirt so big you could swim in it
-a sewing machine (unless you're a masochist and want to sew it by hand)
-a serger (optional)
-a tank top that fits you well
-blood, sweat, and tearz!!!!11

alright, so here's a photo of the shirt before it got sexy-fied:

hueg leik xbox, as you can see.

first! you will turn the shirt inside out and lay it out flat. then you take your tank top and line it up to be centered on the shirt. afterwards, you cut around the tank top, leaving about 1.5/2 inch seam allowance. like so:

second! if you have a serger, serge the armholes and neckline. I serged mine with white thread because I was too lazy to rethread my serger I figured it'd make for a cool contrast and a nice deconstructed look. if you don't have a serger, you can always use zig-zag stitch as an alternative. or if you want your edges nice and neat and hemmed, turn them under and sew.

third! sew up the sides. if you have a serger, go ahead and serge the sides after they're sewn. or zig-zag stitch. or leave them how they are. see if I care!

fourth! put your dress on and dance around feeling pretty.

(excuse my sun burn, I'm pretty much inept at putting on sunblock.)

and there you have it! that took, what, like 20 minutes max? you didn't even have to measure or mark anything! and now you have yourself a cute little dress to go clubbing in. 8D
