Beautiful lamp! I've wanted to make a bassoon version since I saw my lesson teacher's bassoon floor lamp back in middle school. Unfortunately finding an inexpensive and irreparably damaged bassoon is easier said than done.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Desserts that use Cream Cheese? on: January 25, 2010 12:48:44 PM
I got this banana pudding recipe from my boyfriend's mother and it is one of the tastiest ones I've ever had. It's also probably going to kill me one day, especially because we always make the "extra rich" variation.

Seriously. Try it.

Darrah's Banana Pudding
1 Package Cream Cheese (2 for extra richness)
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 oz) (2 for extra richness)
4 Cups Milk (2 for extra richness)
2 Packages Instant Vanilla Pudding (3 Cup Size)
1 Large Tub of Cool Whip
1 Box Nilla Wafers
6 Large Ripe Bananas

1. Soften cream cheese
2. In a huge mixing bowl, mix cream cheese & sweetened condensed milk
3. Add milk and mix until fairly smooth
4. Add both packages of pudding. Mix for 2-3 minutes on medium
5. Fold in 80% of cool whip until evenly blended
6. Layer sliced bananas and Nilla wafers in a large pan or bowl
7. Layer pudding over the bananas/wafers. Continue until gone.

One of my favorite quick and healthy recipes is a chili rubbed pork chop. Its originally a Weight Watcher's recipe, but it tastes great. Plus, you can use the rub on any kind of protein, so its pretty versatile.

Banana Pudding is always an excellent dessert and its not too difficult. My boyfriend's mom's recipe is the one I've started using and its really easy. I also second the potato salad, except I make mine with just Potato, onion, green pepper and mayo. Super simple.

5  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Cable Hat Crochet-a-long on: January 26, 2009 01:48:58 PM
Ok so last night I was hooking along...amazed by how quick the project was going when I realized I had made fpdc where I should have made fptr.

Ripppppppppppppppp! Im back to row 7 now Roll Eyes I really need to read the patterns better.

LOL, don't feel bad, I did this exact same thing! I was wondering why my cables weren't looking too nice, and then realized I had been doubling instead of trebling.

Wow, so I didn't even realize I had missed that until you both mentioned it. I always crochet tighter than normal so I figured that was the problem....

Well good thing I was planning on making this hat again anyway, the first one was a little too tight with my glasses on.

So I finally got the black yarn I needed for this afghan and I started working on the block. Unfortunately I decided to follow the directions and use a 5mm hook. Bad idea. I have one more round left and the block is only 8.5"

I guess I'm going to be redoing it with a 6mm hook. It's a fun pattern though and Caron Simply Soft is amazingly soft... like the name implies.

I wanted to get started on this month's square already, but when I went to Michael's they were out of every single black yarn they had. Oh well, apparently they get their shipment in on Thursdays so I should be able to at least get started on this over the weekend.

It looks like a really pretty square though.

I'm definitely in for this one. I found the 2008 CAL a couple weeks ago. I figure I'll actually be more motivated to do it if I start from the beginning.

Maybe I'll make one for the boyfriend's sister....

I would love to make this, I just need to wait until Christmas break before I start anything new.
