Is microwave popcorn popular elsewhere? If not, that would be a good one. My french teacher said she didn't remember it when she lived in Europe.

I'm not sure if you have them in the UK (or something similar..) but empty, clean Pringles cans would work nicely for cookies. This is what I'm talking about if you don't know:

(Although it may look boxy, it's a cylinder)

You could decorate it to look nicer and more festive.  Grin

I second the microwave potato chip idea. I've tried them before and they're AMAZING!! they take a while to cook though. Also, the nacho idea is good. I like to melt Mexican Blend cheese on the chips in the micro and dip the cheesy tortilla chips into salsa.

With all the good craft store deals (ahem Joann's at 6AM) and deals everywhere, it's a shopping day that's hard to pass up... except for the super long lines and crazed shoppers...

I'm hoping to get some patterns, fleece (for no-sew blankets), glass etching cream (for jars for "____ in a jar" gifts), scrapbook paper (for wooden name signs) and whatever else I can get my hands on.  Cheesy

What's on your list?

Sounds like a good idea but make sure the pad won't block the cooling fans located on the bottom of the laptop--you wouldn't want the laptop to overheat.  Smiley

Last year I made picture frames for my three best friends. I got the actual frames from the dollar store, they were just plain white frames. I modge-podged (proper term?  Huh) several colors of bright tissue paper on the frames as a background. I put glitter glue on top of the tissue paper. Each of my friends have something they really like, one liked fashion, one liked cooking and Orlando Bloom, one liked shopping. I got pictures and headlines from magazines (like BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, and some good pictures of Orlando Bloom, food, designer labels, shoes... ) and modge-podged those on each frame too. You can also hot glue beads and gems on the frame if you want. I framed a really nice picture of all of us with scrapbook paper as the background and surrounded the picture with friendship quotes (cut from ANOTHER scrapbook paper). On the back of the frame, I wrote each of them a letter about what a good friend they were and where I thought they'd be 20 years from now. They  loved them and have them in their rooms.

Though I put a lot of time and thought into them, the actual cost per frame was no more than $2-3 (the frames-$1, the scrapbook paper-$1.. I had glue, magazines and tissue paper on hand but I bought some beads and wire for each frame in the shape of a shoe, heart and star). Basically, scour the craft store and the dollar store for anything cute to use.

I wish I had a picture of one because I don't feel I described them adequately.

Good luck!

When making white rice use part water and part coconut milk. It's amazing with shish kabab or chicken... or by itself!  Smiley

I hadn't even heard of Bento boxes until this post and I kept an eye out for them while shopping. I went to Dollar Tree for index cards and there were blue and green Hello Kitty bento boxes there--only for a dollar!  Shocked Smiley

Around holidays my mom would draw a shape on my sandwich with food coloring. I remember a pumpkin for Halloween and a Christmas tree for Christmas. I thought it was so cool, and that was back in kindergarten and I still remember it...  Grin
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: your favorite smoothies... on: September 15, 2007 06:42:26 PM
My mom's strawberry smooties are my favorite homemade smoothie, I can never seem to get it to have the same taste when I make it...

1-package of frozen strawberries
Some, small "mom measured" amount (probably about a tablespoon) of Nesquick powder --I think this one is the trick to it. :]
1 or 2-bananas
Splash of milk
My mom also puts a few packets of sugar substitute to sweeten because she's diabetic and wants to feel a little better about of the fruit, but I've used real sugar before and it's good.
