1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re:filipino classic - chicken adobo on: February 02, 2004 06:38:16 AM
woooooo filipinas!!!!!!!!!!!  Grin  i'm glad i posted my adobo recipe!

ok, for the lumpia,  i know my mom makes three kinds:
1) regular lumpia - egg rollish and fried
2) lumpia shanghai - those little meat-filled fried ones that you serve with duck sauce
3) lumpia sariwa - the fresh lumpia, made with those crepe-like things and served wtih peanut sauce

mmmm.... i'm going home tonight, so i'm going to snag some lumpia shanghai from my mom's freezer (does everyone do this?  lol)

o, and i'll also snag my mom's flan recipe for you whitemonkey!

the only problem i have with my mom's recipes is that it usually cooks for a family of 10 and i only cook for my little lonesome...  

(oh, ricecake, my avatar is actually me when i was a baby... i always found it curious that they insisted on placing me in that position.  post pictures of your son!  i'm sure guwapo guwapo!)
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re:armwarmers, wristwarmers and an ornament on: January 29, 2004 08:34:40 PM
the green ones were done on double pointed needles and knitted in the round.  i got to the point where i wanted the hole for the thumb, and instead of continuing in the circle i turned it over to start knitting flat.  knit flat for about 1.5 in, then continue to knit in the round until you reach the desired length.  Smiley
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re:Easy Stencils on: January 28, 2004 11:48:35 PM
http://stencilrevolution.com/homepage.php has an amazing collection of stencils. I could spend hours going through their gallery.

OMG lyd i looooooooooooooove that site.  for those that use photoshop/illustrator, they do a separation of highlights and shadows which creates pretty awesome results.

i used to silkscreen but haven't had the money to get a light box or developer, but this is a great way to get the same type of effect!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Machine / Serger Recommendations on: January 28, 2004 11:41:31 PM
so, after weeks of debating what my next splurge is (choices being between weaving, sewing, or another knitting class), i've decided to purchase a sewing machine since it seems like the best investment...  so what machines are you using?  and/or what's a great starter machine?  i have a friend who's been sewing for a while and she said "if you get a small machine and you love to sew, you're going to want a serger instead."

so so confusing for one that doesn't know what the hell to look for!  helppppppppppppppp...  Cry

8  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Re:NYC Crafty Girls on: January 28, 2004 11:18:30 PM
LOL i'm still trying to bring down my stash from last year's Smiley's hotel sale!  definitely a great way to stock up if you have a ton of friends having babies or you have sweater patterns that you're shopping for.  you need to go early, though, because they tend to sell out of the really great yarn fast.  downside to that is BEWARE... don't be a compulsive shopper!!!  unless you have a lot of people to knit for, of course.   Grin

and bring either checks or cash.  no cc allowed!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:scrap yarn projects? or what the hell can i do with my stash? on: January 28, 2004 11:07:21 PM
these are all such great ideas!  i was looking on the nyc craigslist and there have been postings for animal shelters... i'm going to see if i can bring some of my things there.  i also have a TON of hats that i've made that have no homes, but i think some of them are too thin for this horrible weather ny's been having.  has anyone tried to line their hats with fleece or flannel or something?
