11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Crafty Bachelorette on: September 29, 2005 12:36:07 PM
You could get the bride to give you or bring with her all of the pictures that she has of her & the fiance , and pictures of places they've been together while they've been dating and/or engaged, any pics of memorable places/moments/seasons,etc while they've been together.  Go buy a really nice, very large  leather-bound scrapbook album (that she could later have monogrammed or something inscribed on the front of it) and some nice, quality scrapbook supplies....make a "themed" scrapbook of their life together before marriage.  I say to buy a large album because you could leave plenty of pages for her to add pictures of the wedding and pictures from their first year of marriage.  And each "era" could be themed by color....dating/engagement - pink; wedding - silver/gray; 1st year - blue....or whatever colors you choose for the first part and she chooses for the other 2 later.  Then all of you could help her do the pages of their "dating life" at the party.

ORRRRR.....if all of the bridesmaids have pictures of themselves with the bride, then all of you could bring whatever pics you have and do a scrapbook of her with her friends and then after the wedding you, another bridesmaid, or the bride herslef could add pictures of the bridesmaids and the wedding with all of you together at the end.

The only thing this requires would be an album, scrapbooking supplies and pictures!  Quick, easy, fun and not too expensive unless you go over the top with the album purchase itself!
12  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Collard Greens - recipes? on: September 29, 2005 11:12:11 AM
Know this is a little late, but I'm new & thought I'd add my 2 cents Tongue....  There's a restaurant in Atlanta on West Paces Ferry Rd. called OK Cafe.....It's basically a glorified modern diner type of place.  They serve everything you've ever had at your grandma's house on a Sunday after going to church!!  (That is, if you're a Southerner!!  hehe)  But with a "soul food" twist here and there.  Anyway - things like fried chicken, pot roast, chicken fried steak, mashed taters, baked sweet potatoes, 6 cheese mac n cheese, squash casserole, greens, fried jalepeno grits, etc.  Best food on earth!  Their greens are out of this world!!  I never liked them (not even my grandma's) until I tried them at the OK!!  My Dad (he's a regular there)got their "secret" out of one of the cooks....HONEY & TABASCO SAUCE.  Just wash and trim the stems from your greens...then put in a huge pot half filled with water.  Bring it to a boil over medium to medium/high heat.  After it boils, lower the heat to low & add garlic cloves (I use 3-4 to one bunch of greens), salt & pepper, 1/3 cup honey and tabasco sauce to taste (I start with a scant tblsp).  Then cook on low for about 1 hr.  Give it a stir and taste....need more honey? Add a little more....more tabasco?  Add by 1/4 tsp until you have the heat/flavor you want.  If you've added more honey/tabasco be sure to add just a little more water because it needs to cook a little longer to make sure the added seasonings have time to mesh well.  Sometimes I fry up a few slices of bacon and after the greens are done, I just crumble them in before serving.  People will rave about these greens and never quite know what it is that makes them so good...something about the combination of the honey & tabasco...it's soooo good!  Warning, though...once I was out of tabasco and used crystals brand hot sauce...not nearly as good at all...use the tabasco.

So do you use the packets of dry ranch dressing mix and sort of dredge the chicken in it first, then in the crushed chips??  Just want to be sure if I'm supposed to mix up the dressing per directions first, then dredge in chips...my husband and 2 boys would love love love this!  And my 5 yr old could actually help me make it...it'd be fun for him to get to crush up chips on purpose!!!!   I'm thinking if he got to help cook it that he might be more likely to EAT IT!  (Been having trouble with him trying new foods)
