1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegetarian Recipe Collection..post yours! on: January 01, 2006 06:23:35 PM
so I'm starting school again next week and realized I have no idea what to bring for lunch. last year I would rely on the salad bar  for lunch but this year I'd like to try to bring my own healthy non-cafeteria-lame-excuse-for-lettuce salads. Any sandwich ideas (I like pretty much everything in my sandwiches but tomatos Lips sealed)? or anything else that has easy morning prep?

Thanks guys Smiley

I bring lunch to school and work all the time.  I usually chop up a bunch of raw verggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. and put it in a sectioned plastic container with hummus in one of the sections.  Then I just dip and eat.  Some vegetables like carrot sticks and pea pods don't need any prep.  Then in another section of the container I usually throw in some dry cereal or trail mix, and I stick a piece of fruit in my purse.  If you like sandwiches you could put a pita pocket and knife in the container and assemble the sandwich at lunch.

Otherwise, I make brown rice or lentils or whatever the night before and just stick it in a container to take with me.  But I like the sectioned container lunch because it's quick and delicious and doesn't require any cooking or utensils or anything.
2  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Fudge on: January 01, 2006 05:50:28 PM
I made fudge for the first time last night.  I melted 1 cup of chocolate chips and one cup of unsalted teddy bear peanut butter in a double boiler with 3/4-1 cup maple syrup.  I also threw in a few vegan marshmallows torn into very small pieces.  Then I spooned the mixture into tiny muffin tins and pressed crushed walnuts into the top and refrigerated it for a couple hours.  It was just an experiment- I had no idea how it was going to turn out but everyone who tried it said it was good and that it tasted like fudge/

One time I was making Bikini Kill patches (hey, I was 16, okay?) from a pair or sturdy green pants that didn't fit me anymore, and I was using a black permanent marker.  I didn't realize how close my face got the the marker until I stood up and stretched my arms, and my hands got all tingly.  This disturbed me and suddenly I became convinced that I had MS.  I thought I was going to die.  Then I started to get a raging headache, and I was wandering aimlessly around my room, which is in the basement, when I heard a noise and became paranoid that an intruder was in the cellar.  I started panicking and it wasn't until 20 minutes later that I realized I must have gotten high from the marker.

To this day, I can't stand the smell of markers.

I bought a shirt a long time ago because I loved the fabric, but the fit is very akward.  I was going to make a headscarf out of it, but I screwed it up.  Now I finally have a use for the fabric!  I'm such a slob that I'm bound to stain somehting that I really like soon...

I like Option 4.  I think the dots would get overwhelming after a while. Like a Target commercial or something.

I'm not sure I understand this but I'm going to look into it because a crappy one would be great for wearing underneath some of my 50s sundresses.

I'm in love with that first one- the yellow.

it looks kind of like it's made from an old dish towel- up until a few years ago my mother had some really old ones with cute patterns and they would have made great pouches. I wish I'd known she was going to throw them away so ic ould have got to them first!
