1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: November 07, 2011 03:45:41 AM
Okay, in the vain of TOTALLY BROKE, I have had the following meals all too recently...

Rice with teriyaki sauce

Plain sandwich with butter and pickles
Plain sandwich with butter and canned beetroot slices

Jelly on its own

Scrambled eggs (x2 eggs, splash of milk, salt, pepper, cook, sprinkle dill on top)

Veggie Surprise (Basically whatever vegetables you have, or can get your hands on, I like to do one of everything; potato, sweet potato, zuchinni, carrot, squash, tinned corn kernels, onion, can of corn kernels; cook garlic and onion, add veggies, add a tin of "4 beans", cook till veggies are tender, add jar of spaghetti sauce, simmer for 10 mins; add can of diced tomatos if you like. Section off and freeze containers to be eaten later. Reheat and eat on its own, or cook up some pasta to make it last longer)

Chicken and Sweet Potato casserole (x4 chicken thighs, cut into strips, x2 sweet potatos, x1 onion. Cut up, and thrown into a casserole dish. Cover in whatever cheap maple flavoured syrup you can get your hands on; I use about 1/2 cup to 1 cup, and bake in oven at about... 160' degrees; serve with rice)

Hello fellow Aussie!!!

Not sure where in Aus you are, but i'm in Brisbane, and there's some american confectinary stores around (the one I go to is in Browns Plains), and they sell the canned pumpkin puree.

I checked the ingredients, and it is LITERALLY straight pumpkin... I did notice that it tasted NOTHING like the sorts of pumpkins we get here... it was almost... blander... but better... which is an odd thing to say,..

In any case, a friend and I made pumpkin pie, and oh god.. oh god... it was so good...

Wherever you are, there should be somewhere that sells american candies, maybe just ask the vendor if they're able to get the stuff.

Cost us about $5 a can and needed just the one to make a good pie...

.... I so want pumpkin pie right now.... ohm.nom.nom.

I think i'd personally prefer it with straps... but other than that the lines are smooth, the fabric is vibrant, good work would be my honest opinion!!  Grin

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Simplicity 2338 and also hot pants on: February 06, 2011 08:48:00 PM
I am MEGA late to the party here... but I feel your pain; i'm in EXACTLY the same position!!!

So! hotpants!!!

But a pair of derbyskins.... they fit large, so buy a size down from what you normally get.

Lay them out to draw a pattern, but draw the waist higher (so it goes up to your bellybutton/ waist/ wherever you want it).

Then use that as a pattern to make NEW hotpants.

I'm sticking with thick dance Lycra fabric, and the skins are SUCH a good fit, that the modified hotpants should end up about perfect.

Now if skins actually made them highwaisted.. oh man, i'd be one happy derby gal!

A jumper here (Australia and New Zealand) is like a sweatshirt / hoodie type top.

a romper, or a onesie would have pant legs... but as an open skirt, I've always known them as a pinnafore.

Just go to www.etsy.com get your mum or dad to sit down with you and in the registration section, get her to put down her details.

She may need to be in charge of financial transactions because you have to add a paypal account (I believe).

Best to get her to sit down with you and look through the code of conduct on their website.

Good luck.

Ok, so you need white panels for behind the words, to make the panels. Should be the same stuff you've used for the two panel windows (and I hope you've made the sign too yes??)

For the "POLICE PUBLIC CALL BOX" across the top, why not use the iron on letters you can get? From vague memory, they seem to be the same, if not similar enough font that i've seen available at spotlight.

Check out your local craft/ fabric store to see if you can find them. They're an Iron on FELT, so not too thick, but still fabric, as opposed to paint, or vinylish type iron ons Smiley

If you're worried about them coming loose later on, you could do a tack stitch here and there to help hold them on (after you iron them on!!!)

Good luck!
