21  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: College/Cheap, fast, but not horribly unhealthy ---for Vegetarians!!! on: March 30, 2011 07:07:52 AM
As a vegetarian college student, this thread is right up my alley!

I am a huuuuge fan of mexican food, so quesadilla supplies are always in my fridge. I put a tortilla on a baking sheet, top with mexican style cheese (or whatever cheese I happen to have laying around), vegetables (black olives, bell pepper strips, chopped tomatoes....again, whatever I have laying around), and some dried cilantro. Top with the other tortilla and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. They're awesome with some salsa for dipping.

I eat veggies and rice at least twice a week. I buy the huge frozen bags of asian style veggies, plus extra edamame or sugar snap peas.

My boyfriend orders wings a lot, so my substitute is fried veggies. I dip mushrooms, bell pepper strips, or zucchini in flour, then egg, then seasoned breadcrumbs, place them on my pizza crisper pan and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes. When they come out I dip them in bbq sauce. Yuuuuummy.

Grilled cheese on rye bread with pepperjack and cheddar is another favorite. Especially with my "special" tomato soup. It's campbells condensed tomato soup with 1/2 can of milk, 1/2 can of water and cumin, cayenne, garlic, and basil. Delish.

23  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Luna's Dirigible Plum Earrings! on: March 21, 2011 06:09:05 PM
Hello all! These were my first experience working with polymer clay and I don't think they turned out so bad!

I wanted to make them orange, instead of red, because in the book they're orange. I also think these are a little more my style than the beaded versions.

I love them, but you can definitely tell I'm an amateur, lol. The orange kind of made the white look "dirty" and I got a few fingerprints on them, but overall I think they were a great first project.

And just for funsies, here's another pic with my butterbeer cork necklace (to keep the nargles away!)

Thanks for looking Grin

It took 15-20 min on extra-low heat for my scarf to get to the slightly damp stage with my dryer, but it looks TONS better. Barely twists or curls at all! Thanks for your help (again, lol)

Oh wow, I LOVE the owl and the blue and black skull cap! They look so much more interesting than the plainer style baby hats. Great job!
28  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / Re: Any Akronites? on: March 21, 2011 10:06:18 AM
So, I know no one's really posted in this thread since November of last year, but I figured I'd throw my hat into the Akronite ring  Grin

I currently attend the University of Akron, and live about 40 minutes west of there in an itty bitty town between Medina and Wooster. I was surprised to see so many people from Wadsworth, since it's only a 15-20 min drive from where I live  Tongue

Let's see, my newest obsession is crocheting, my grandma just taught me so I've been doing a lot of that lately. I really want to learn to do amigurami's soon! I also do a little scrapbooking, a little with beads and clay (jewelry, mostly). I'm starting to do a little with fabric, but I don't really know how to sew. Definitely on my list of things to learn. I also love to doodle and take pictures.  I'm definitely addicted to PatCatans and Joanns, I have a ton of craft supplies that I pick up with intentions of using for awesome projects but never get around to.

Nice to see so many NEOhioans here Smiley

Well, the scarf was Pinkleo's Luna Lovegood scarf so I THINK it's just curling inward because of all the spaces, but I tried adding a couple rows of sc on the bottom and that helped a little. I'll try washing/drying a swatch tomorrow just to make sure I don't ruin it, but after I take it out of the dryer should I pin it down while it dries, or no?

Thanks a lot for your help, I figured it'd be easier to talk to a real person than anything else Smiley
30  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: March 20, 2011 08:38:23 AM
I've been eating vegetarian since I was 14 (that would have been 2004) but I'm in the same boat as most of you. I've never really liked the taste or texture or IDEA of meat. I mostly stuck to poultry until I decided to just not eat animals. I grew up on a farm so it was always pretty difficult to go feed Lucy the Cow and then come back and eat a hamburger.  Wink

At first, my parents thought it was just a phase and didn't really cook for me, so I learned to cook for myself and that's probably the best thing they could have done for me. At first I think I lived on PB&J, mac and cheese, and salad, but after a while I started getting more adventerous with my kitchen experiments and now all my food is colorful and tastes divine.

Of course, I still get made fun of, but it's all in good fun. For example, last night my mom said: "Are you going to make yourself something or would you prefer to go graze in the field?"   Cheesy I laughed...
