1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Favorite "Weird" Food? on: June 25, 2008 07:40:44 PM
hot dogs in aspic. so basically hot dogs in hot dog flavored jello. yeah, it's about as good as it sounds. for some unknown reason my gramma loves this slop and brings it to every family reunion where it sits there in all it's shiny, jiggly, hot dog glory. generally we like to feed it to unsuspecting spouses who've never been to family get-togethers.

gyros. mmmm.... i always have to get one when i'm at any of the local festivals. i'm not actually that big on fried food, but that probably has something to do with my family running a local cafe that has a full page of fried appetizers on the menu.

oh, and the fry bread tacos, i love those!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Let's talk about cooking unusual meats (tongue, knuckles, rabbit etc) on: June 25, 2008 07:04:21 PM
Being from a rural area with a pretty bad economic situation, so there are quite a few things we eat on a pretty regular basis that other people seem to find weird. I was actually surprised the first time I had a friend over for dinner and she got squeamish over rabbit stew.

We regularly have rabbit, bear, venison, grouse, pretty much any sort of game animal available here. I've had moose, elk, and buffalo cross my dinner table, but that's not nearly as common since it's not something we can get from the back forty, lol.

yeah, we've been kicking around the idea of tea bags for favors. i think it would be a gift people will actually use, and of course i love me a good cup of tea. my sister has some concerns that maybe not everyone loves tea like  i do, so we thought maybe making it into some sort of centerpiece with an assortment of tea and cocoa or coffee samplers.

I have been charged with helping my sister plan her wedding. and by help plan, i mean i am related to the most indecisive people on the planet and in order to avoid making any decisions ever, they enlist me as a wedding slave. It involves much making of puppy eyes and sniffling and "hey, you're crafty, right? so planning a wedding would be fun, right?" It's not pretty. Trust me. The good news is, she's not very picky, lol.

So i was wondering if any of you lovely, crafty people have any ideas for a garden/tea party sort of theme. We want it to be like the giant tea party we would have thrown when we were little, whimsical and slightly silly. Any ideas for decorations, favors, or just about anything else would be greatly appreciated.  Grin

i planned my baby sister's wedding in about 3 months. she and her now husband lived about half a continent away and she was the least picky bride ever, so it wasn't that hard. we did the entire thing for about $1000. as long as you're willing to be flexable about things it's totally realistic.

it's not uncommon to have a small wedding and a nice big reception/party later. and the party with the bonfire and such sounds like so much fun!

honestly, i've been involved in planning a few weddings, and i've resigned myself to the fact that someone is always going to feel insulted/slighted/left out. man, the things people can get upset over. the bottom line is that it's your wedding and really, you should do what makes you happy and comfortable. good luck!

one of my favorite easy/cheap favors is origami cranes. they're not hard to make, don't cost much, and if you string them with a bit of pretty string or embroidery floss and a couple beads, it's a fun little decoration.
