1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Purim Mishloach Manot - anyone sending? on: March 18, 2008 06:33:36 AM
a little boring---but the challot are a good idea---maybe make them in purim shapes for interest......like a crown or a gogger or a triangle shape.......
i live in jerusalem,so we give mishloach manot on sunday---this year i'm making pumpkin soup---everyone will get a container with 3-4 servings,some nice bread---either rolls or some kind intereting bread and hamentashen.

in the past i've done a breakfast kind---bagels,cream cheese,butter,strawberries and juice and a few tea bags.

my dd wanted me to make sushi and send it with saki---but no time to get the saki---sort of an oriental take on mishloach manot

purim sameach Cheesy

if you're not going to take a cooler--make sure the food stays cool--maybe freeze some water bottles to put in with the food.

my daughter and i went to london about a month ago and were out and about all day---we took a thermos of tea with us--it was cold in london,pop top cans of tuna and yummy whole grain crackers to eat with the tuna,fruit,and good cookies as well as dried fruit and nuts.hard boiled eggs are good and lots of cut up veggies---with dip.individual salads with marinated tofu chunks.another possibility is to take a thermos with soup.

the other thing to think about is that if you are eating on the bus,you should take things that aren't messy to eat and that aren't "smelly"
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what to make with sari silk yarn on: January 07, 2008 02:00:32 PM
i just won 3 skeins of sari silk yarn on ebay.here are the particulars:

1/3 kilogram - 11.7 ounces - approx 240 yards)
Each Skein is 100 grams

How the Yarn is Made: Our yarn is the made from the same silk used to make the colorful Saris worn by many women in South Asia. When Saris are made on a mill, the ends of the silk fabric are trimmed off.  To keep this beautiful silk from going to waste, the fibers from the trimmed ends are handspun spun into recycled silk yarn. This cottage spinning industry benefits women's development groups, helping them generate additional income.
