1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sicilian Sideline Skewers - AWESOME party food! on: January 26, 2008 04:35:17 PM
I made these for a cocktail party we had about a month ago. They looked really cool and they taste amazing. There were such a huge hit. They were almost all gone within an hour. Here's the recipe I got from allrecipes.com:

1 (14 ounce) can small artichoke hearts, quartered
1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
36 (3/4 inch) cubes mozzarella cheese
36 slices thin pepperoni slices
1 cup bottled Italian cheese dressing
1 head Tanimura & Antle iceberg lettuce
36 wooden skewers

Combine artichokes, peppers, cheese and pepperoni in bowl. Add dressing; mix lightly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Can be overnight.
Before serving, cut lettuce in half. Rinse; drain well. Place one half on plate, cut side down. Cut remaining lettuce into 1 inch chunks.
Thread lettuce chunks and remaining ingredients alternately onto skewers. Drizzle with dressing remaining in bowl. Insert skewers into lettuce half.

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A very "Starry Night" collaborative work, oil pastels, by my students! on: January 09, 2008 07:56:30 PM
I work at a charter high school with some awesome students. I have the pleasure of teaching weekly "art workshops" (every Tuesday at 11 am!) A couple of months ago I had the students do a collabortive piece with oil pastels. I took the famous Starry Night painting and made a grid of 63 squares and assigned several students a couple of random squares each. They made a larger version of the squares on 4" x 4" bristol board with oil pastels... and this is the result! It turned out FANTASTIC! I especially love this project because it shows how differently each student interprets color, line, and shape. What is "dark blue" to one student is completely different to the other.

I would love to give the students credit for this awesome project, but I know it's not safe (and probably not legal?) to give their full name. So thank you to: Carlos, Arlando, David, Ellarese, and Josue! (I also had to finish up about 10 left over squares myself).

I have the picture at home because we had to "clean shop" recently, and unfortunately a lot of the students projects had to be sent home or thrown away.  Cry This is one of my favorite projects so I asked it I could take it home myself.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / My cousins sweet 16 party - need a gift!! on: August 29, 2005 10:53:20 AM
Well we are having a surprise party for my cousins 16th birthday. It was recently moved up from next Wednesday to this Wednesday so I don't have much time! I want to make her something.. I want it to special and I'm also low on money hehe. I don't really want to spend more than $30-40 but I want it to be a really cool gift  Huh

She's pretty creative so I was thinking of making her a kit of some sort. Maybe some beads/string/wire/hemp or something. I also thought it'd be cool to make something with the bands she really likes since she seems to really be into music. She's also re doing her room so it would be cool to make something like a tac board or a lamp or ... I dunno!

Please help  Grin
