1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hello!...need some help! on: November 10, 2005 04:20:04 PM
Hello alpin...

When I learned to sew I had a great mentor... my mom. If you know someone that would give you help it really makes learning a lot easier. I also took a sewing class in high school, which helped too.

If you ask in your local fabric store, the staff can probably direct you to good beginner projects. Burda makes lots of easy patterns and there's usually a section of easy ones on display.

Skirts are pretty easy to make, that might make a good first project. Or something small, like a purse.

Good luck!

The most delicious way to eat turnips:

Turnip Puff

1 large turnip
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 egg beaten
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup bread crumbs
Salt and pepper

Cook turnip in slightly salted water. Drain well and mash with 1 tablespoon of butter and the sugar. Cool.

Mix flour, baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper together. Stir into the mashed turnip. Add the beaten egg and combine. Place in a buttered casserole.

Mix 1 tablespoon melted butter and a little salt and pepper with the bread crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the turnip. bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40  minutes.

Seeing as it's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend... I thought I would start a thread for Veg'ns that like the fall feast! What do you make for Thanksgiving, what are your favorite recipies, what do you stuff yourself with when you don't stuff a bird?

I love stuffing (that's been made outside of a turkey) and mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, yum! Also, my Mom makes this really great turnip dish. I will try and find the recipe to post.

These recipes sound really good! I've been eating a lot of miso soup lately... this recipe isn't authentically Japanese, but I like it and it is really easy to make.

Miso Soup

6 baby potatoes, or 1 regular potato cut into chunkc
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
10 mushrooms, sliced
2 cups chopped bok choy (or your other favorite choy)
1/2 package firm tofu, cubed
3 tablespoons miso paste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
chopped green onion

Put the potatoes, garlic, and ginger into a large pot and half fill the pot with water. Boil for around 10 minutes. add the mushrooms and tofu, simmer for another 5 minutes. add bok choy, miso, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Stir well and simmer another 3 minutes. Dish up and garnish with green onions.

You can add other vegetables if you are so inclined... it would also be good with noodles.

Enjoy! I sure do...
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: random bathtub on: September 14, 2005 08:44:23 PM
Hello, I've been lurking around craftster for months and finally had to join so I could tell you about this: in my elementary school in the library, there was a bathtub! It was painted on the outside and inside like a blue sky with clouds and rainbows, and there were tons of pillows in it. It was the best place for reading and all of the kids used to fight over who got to sit in it. So that's my suggestion: a reading tub.
