Sorry for the delay all...here's the info for October's Iron Chef Hogwarts secret ingredient!

The secret ingredient for October is...

SQUASH!


Put an autumn twist on an old favorite with this butternut squash stuffed shells recipe, or stuff the squash itself with this sausage and apple stuffed acorn squash dish, or even use yellow squash to make a squash pie!

Excellent Iron Chef entries, ladies!

I love chowder, Jennie! Yours looks delicious.

The fresh tomato salsa with corn looks delicious, too, tiamatfire!

I actually have an iron chef entry this month as well! And a couple last minute class prompts...

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Dyed and stitched prayer flag
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Sometimes, in between crafting for swaps, I get a little stuck for inspiration. This little prayer flag came out of an attempt to keep crafting even when I don't have a swap deadline looming and to reignite inspiration for some upcoming swaps. The background is dyed and the mandala is stitched - two skill sets coming together in one project.
Project Picture:



Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tie-Dyed Fat Quarters
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I had a bunch of dye left over from recent projects and decided to just try to use it up with these fun little scraps of fabric. Each was done with a random scrunching and haphazard dye application, which made for rather irregular design results!
Project Pictures:



Close up of one, to showcase the irregularity. Smiley



Challenge: Iron Chef Hogwarts - Corn
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Chicken Salad with Corn
Project Page Link: Based on this recipe
Brief Description: This dish was born from leftovers! One leftover chicken breast from the crockpot (from last night's dinner) and a leftover ear of corn (from Tuesday night's dinner) came together in a slightly different take on chicken salad (for me, anyway). I used the above recipe for guidance, but mostly just used what I had. I used paprika instead of chili powder for a milder flavor and left out the mustard and parsley. I guess I didn't really follow the recipe all that well, lol! We'll see how it tastes at lunch today, anyway. Wink

Challenge: Iron Chef - Lentils
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Lentil Salad
Brief Description: I made this fantastic lentil salad to take to a bonfire on the beach...

*Thanks to Mistress Jennie for providing this awesome example!

In addition to earning house points, I will continue to run the Iron Chef Hogwarts giveaway! Each time you make a dish containing the secret ingredient, you are entered for a chance to win a end of term prize! If you make a dish with the secret ingredient each month, your name will be entered into the drawing at the end of the semester THREE times for THREE chances to win!


The secret ingredient for October is...

SQUASH!


Put an autumn twist on an old favorite with this butternut squash stuffed shells recipe, or stuff the squash itself with this sausage and apple stuffed acorn squash dish, or even use yellow squash to make a squash pie!



Previous Iron Chef Challenges






NOTE: All secret ingredients are chosen at random from a list of ingredients that have been actual Iron Chef secret ingredients on the US muggle television show. That being said, if you are allergic to any ingredient posted, you may still enter and earn your badge IF you choose a recipe that is traditionally made with the secret ingredient but substitute that single ingredient with an allergy-safe version. Please call out any substitutions in your post. Only substitutions based on allergy or other health-related dietary restrictions will be accepted. Thank you for your cooperation!

7  OWLs in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: September 28, 2017 07:08:40 AM
NOTE: Once you propose, please go forth on your Advanced Studies projects.  Your Examiners will PM if they have any inquiries.

~Everything O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s~
---Ordinary Wizarding Levels, OWLs, and Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, NEWTs, are advanced crafting projects.  OWLs and NEWTs are supposed to be more complex and challenging projects.
---OWLs and NEWTs are more time-consuming than HPC classes and challenges.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
---OWLs should take 3-4 weeks to complete.
---NEWTs should take more than a month to complete. (Please see post below for more on NEWTs.)
---Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed OWLs and NEWTs.  If you finish your OWL or NEWT earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your subject.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
---You must propose your OWL or NEWT before starting so that we may be your cheerleaders and help encourage you during this more challenging craft adventure.
---You may only do 1 OWL & 1 NEWT at one time.  (Dont want you to be stuck with a ton of OWL & NEWT WIPs!)
---You may propose an OWL or NEWT any time during the semester.
---OWLs and NEWTs can carry over to the next semester.
---If you decide to abandon an OWL or NEWT project, notify your OWL Examiners, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have an OWL or NEWT erased, you can propose a new one.

~*HOW TO COMPLETE AN OWL*~
1. Select which OWL you would like to complete.  You may only do one OWL at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your OWL project.  You may do this by PM to your OWL Examiners or by posting in the HPC thread.  When making an OWL Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future OWLs.
3. Begin work on your OWL project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the HPC thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in the HPC; make sure to use the OWL Header provided below.  Once you post a completed OWL, your OWL Examiner will notify the Headmistress, and you will earn your OWL Badge for that subject.
GOOD LUCK!!

I went on an abandoning spree this weekend. We hit my absolute favorite fine art craft fair on Saturday at Peter's Valley. I have to admit that the very first piece I distributed I actually did not abandon at all.

I was in a lovely booth of an artist displaying dyed fabric wall hangings enjoying her work when a woman came in an gave the artist a heart-shaped stone as a token of random kindness. "You obviously love what you do," she said, and explained that she has given these rocks out all over the world to people she feels moved to offer them to. I was loving the exchange and was so honored to have witnessed it, but I never expected the woman to offer me a stone as well, just for being in the booth! I immediately thought of alteredmommy's canvases tucked away in my purse and offered one to the woman. The spirit of randomly brightening someone's day was the same as her mission, so I thought it was appropriate, and she agreed! Her friend snapped a picture of us commemorating our exchange so that I could share it here with all of you. It was a wonderfully serendipitous moment that I'll always remember. Smiley



Yes, I am gigantically pregnant, lol.

Anyway...on a little high from the interaction with a fellow kindness "guerrilla," I abandoned another canvas on a nearby bench. It was gone by the time we did a second round of the booths.



Then on Sunday, we hit the city and I dropped the remaining three canvases. It's amazing how in the middle of such a busy place, you can totally go unnoticed, haha.

First, we found this cool stoop advertising a basement fallout shelter. Seemed like a good spot:



Then, a cool sculpture outside an office building:



And inside an abandoned box on a light post at a busy cross-walk:



Unfortunately, I did not walk past these spots again to see if they were still there before we headed back to Jersey. Hopefully they all found wonderful loving homes. Smiley

Thank you alteredmommy for an awesome swap, and thank you sheepBlue for the opportunity to be a part of such an awesome movement!! Cheesy

Excellent season, Quidditch players and CONGRATS to Ravenclaw!! Cheesy

Class: Charms
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Bleach and dyed fat quarter
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: This lively and fun FQ was made from a plain black FQ, spiral tied and placed in a bucket of bleach diluted with water ~10:1 water to bleach. While still tied, the piece was rinsed thoroughly to stop the bleach reaction, then soaked in a soda ash mixture for 30 minutes prior to being overdyed with fiber reactive dyes. The dyed fabric sat overnight in plastic, then was rinsed again and washed. I think it came out pretty cool!

Class: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Mini Dot Mandala Canvases
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: These mini canvases were made for the art abandonment swap here on Craftster. I was paired with the awesome alteredmommy, so I really wanted to do something awesome for her. She had dot mandala rocks pinned, and I adapted the idea slightly to use mini canvases. Partly because I had these in my stash and partly to increase the ease of painting these babies, since this was to be my first attempt. I made sure that my supplies matched my project for this by purchasing a set of embossing tools to get just the right sized dots. I also used several household items including a pin head, a nail head, some dremel drill bits (flat end), a thumb tack, and several jewelry making tools from my husband's workbench. Having the right supplies made a HUGE difference in this project.

Love the drop sites, Nodsu!!

I received some awesome art from alteredmommy last night! Check out her gorgeous work:



Each canvas was packed in a plastic baggie with an awesome tag declaring the origins of the art. I can't to spread some Alberta arty goodness in NJ!

Here's a close up:



The work is wonderfully textured. Smiley I didn't realize the lighting on these pics wasn't the best until I took the picture of mine:



This pic shows the colors a bit more true to life. It's already found a home on my entry-way shelf (can you spot it?):



The whole package came with a  lovely card printed with alteredmommy's friend's batik artwork:



I love it! Thanks so much, alteredmommy - now to get these babies out into the world!
