Yeah, milk and sugar in your tea is very British - they also like their tea pretty strong, so milk and sugar makes more sense.   I like my tea strong, but plain!

dumb question, but i'm asking anyway. are you supposed to eat the skin on the mango? is it like a pear skin? i put a mango in a fruit salad for a party, and didnt peel it. was i supposed to? oops

Acutally, mango skin contains the same chemical as poison ivy - some people break out around their mouths after eating mango if they're not careful with the skin.  So, no, I wouldn't recommend eating it.

Wow, that's a great tea set.   Here's a link that should help:  http://www.soyouwanna.com/site/syws/hightea/hightea.html

So far I've made spice cookies, peanut butter cookies with dark chocolate kisses (from Pillsbury refrigerated dough - this was my "cheat" cookie that I didn't make from scratch), and peppermint bark (milk and white chocolate).   

I think I may make a batch of these:  http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefinder/display?id=41019   tomorrow for my mother's friends.  She has been in the hospital, and her friends have been very sweet about coming to visit regularly and helping dad with things.

OK -

Some of the suggestions that got wiped out in the server meltdown were things you could buy without being 21:

Mixers (bloody mary, margarita, daiquiri, pina colada, etc)
Grenadine (the non-alcoholic kind)
Shot glass
Vintage bartending guides
Crafty stuff like tumblers and coasters that you could design yourself.

Yep,  rum, vodka, tequila, whiskey (jim beam is a good basic choice for a bourbon whiskey, which is what most people like to mix with coke)

For sweet liqueurs - triple sec (goes in margaritas and a lot of fruity drinks) kahlua, amaretto and bailey's irish cream are three good basics that go in a lot of things

If there are martini drinkers around, a bottle of dry vermouth

Oh, and half and half or cream for white russians, rather than milk.  

Grenadine for tequila sunrises, hurricanes, and other pink/red drinks.  

Also useful (and can be purchased by people under 21) - pouring spouts, a speed opener, a cocktail shaker and/or strainer

Mississippi Sin   

(lives up to its name, best served with Fritos for the full-on artery-clogging effect.  I leave out the ham for my non-pork-eating friends)

2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup chopped cooked ham
1/3 cup chopped green chiles
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (1-lb) round loaf French bread


Combine shredded cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, chopped ham, chile peppers, green onions, and Worcestershire sauce; mix well. Set aside.

To make the bread bowl:  Using a serrated knife, gently cut vertically to, but not through, bottom of the loaf, 1/2 inch from the edge, to cut out center of bread. Lift out center of loaf; cut into 1-inch cubes and set aside. Fill bread bowl with the dip. Wrap reserved bread cubes with foil. Bake dip at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with reserved bread cubes and/or Fritos.

Makes about 4 cups

58  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Jordy Bag - Square Bottomed Lined Bag Tutorial on: December 08, 2005 08:22:39 AM
You actually do sew the lining to the outer part completely, but only around the top end.  You leave one corner open so that you can then turn it all right side out through that hole and then sew the hole up.    You're basically sewing two bags (one from outer fabric, one from lining fabric), sewing them together around the top (with right sides together) and then turning them right side out so that you get a nice clean seam at the top edge of the bag.

Oh yes,  RC Cola, moonpies, beef jerky, pork rinds, pickled pigs feet...there's no end of food items you could include.

A tacky bottle opener (I know ACE Hardware near me has some football ones that play fight songs when you open the beer bottle)

Definitely something with camo or neon orange fabric - maybe something that is camo on one side (when you want to be invisible) and orange on the other (when you don't)

You could combine duct tape and WD-40 for the ultimate redneck tool box:  "If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape.  If it doesn't move, and it should, use WD-40."
