1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:Tyvek Pouch for Any Occasion on: February 13, 2004 08:47:54 AM
Wow, my fascination with this tyvek stuff will never end now...

a couple things:

1) I was showing my coworker a pouch I made with it and we were discussing the feel/annoying "FedEx" logo on the inside and he suggested: "How about lining it with fabric?" Has anyone tried this yet?

2) A couple people mentioned they don't have sewing machines... I made a great bag with velcro at the top and scrapbooking rivets on the sides.

3) For those concerned about ripping off the postal service and breaking laws and whatnot, you can buy plain white (yay!) tyvek bags through office supply companies/stores.

Happy crafting. Smiley
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re:Chinese Chicken Salad on: February 13, 2004 08:32:22 AM
anyone have a good recipe for it so I can cross reference and add some new stuff

Ok, this is more vietnamese than chinese, and the flavors are completely different from what you are using, so unless you are well rounded in your culinary tastes, be wary!
I personally LOVE it, my bf doesn't know there is "fish sauce" in it, and the lime/chili combo is amazing. This is from Martha Stewart. Smiley

Vietnamese Chicken Salad
Serves 4
1   skinless and boneless chicken breast
3/4  teaspoon chile paste
1  clove garlic, minced
1 1/2  tablespoons sugar
1  tablespoon rice-wine vinegar
3  tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2  tablespoons Asian fish sauce (nam pla)
3  tablespoons peanut oil
6  cups shredded (12 ounces) savoy cabbage
1/2  cup fresh mint leaves, julienned
1/2  cup fresh cilantro leaves, julienned, plus sprigs for garnish
1  small red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
1  small fresh red or green hot chile pepper
1/2   seedless cucumber, seeded, julienned
2   large carrots, peeled, julienned
1   red bell pepper, julienned
1/3  cup roasted roughly chopped peanuts
  1.  Bring a stockpot of water to a simmer. Add chicken to simmering water, and poach until the meat is firm and the juices run clear when pierced with a two-pronged fork, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove chicken from the water, and thinly slice it lengthwise. Set aside.
  2.  In a small bowl, whisk together chile paste, garlic, sugar, rice-wine vinegar, lime juice, fish sauce, and peanut oil until well combined. Set aside.
  3.  In a medium bowl, toss together cabbage, mint, and cilantro, and place on a large platter. Top the cabbage mixture with the onion, pepper, cucumber, carrots, bell pepper, and chicken. Drizzle with the reserved dressing, garnish with peanuts and cilantro sprigs, and serve.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Scrabooking, bookmaking, etc, tool rec. on: February 10, 2004 10:14:58 AM
I went to JoAnn Fabrics this weekend and picked up a Making Memories (www.makingmemories.com) tool set. It was 20% off and came to about $25-- which I was sort of reluctant to spend at first, but when I got it home I found that it was well worth the money.


I hardly had any tools to start with, so buying the kit seemed smarter than forking over about $6-8 for each tool. The whole punch and eyelet setter work great, I feel like the whole set is pretty quality-made.

A really good book to try is The Vegetarian Lunchbasket. Most are very simple and so far they have been all really yummy.

Wait, try Saddle Back college. You can take a whole semester sewing class for about $65. I bet JoAnn's cant match that...
