11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Photobooth Swap? on: September 07, 2007 05:19:29 AM
If this turns into a "craft" swap I'd be down.   I've seen bracelets that hold photobooth strips as welll as frames for photobooth pics -- it would be neat if everbody made frames.

I did this last year and would love to do it again as long as it doesn't end up being a BIG swap.

I'm thinking of joining--  but it's a pretty big swap and I have to go to England for a week, so I have to consider whether I'll be able to do it.

Check the College/Cheap thread.   23 pages of ideas for easy food.

Pick up a few tubs of things like white bean salad, sauteed rapini and marinated eggplant at the deli section of the grocery store, toast some baguette rubbed with garlic, add the toppings and garnish with some fresh herbs.  Not very imaginative,  but if you garnish it people will likely be fooled into thinking you made the toppings yourself.   I especially recommend white bean salad (I make a version from scratch to serve on crostini that everybody raves about)

I was staring at some excess mushrooms today, wondering what to do with them.   I'll have to forgo the broth and add some extra spices,  but it sounds good.  how much bread did you use in proportion to the mushrooms?

I would be up for this if it was a fairly small swap.

Oh, also, you can make miso soup for very cheap- get the broth powder, Dashi, from a Japanese food store, and you can get the rest of the ingredients from most health food stores.  In mine, I use wakame (a specific kind of seafood), kikkoman soy sauce, green onions, very firm tofu, white miso, and non-MSG dashi.  Dump it all into a bowl and nuke until it has been boiling a minute or two.  Highly yummy.  Dashi comes in fish and seaweed varieties, so make sure you get the kind you want, and check for MSG, a lot of them have it.

Just thought I would let people know that fish often hides in miso under the name "bonito"
Also good to know is that you should never boil miso.   Fresh miso has a lot of enzymes as well as probiotics, but if it is brought to a boil these are killed.   Make the miso soup, scoop a cup out, dissolve miso in this and then add the miso at the last second making sure not to boil it.

I eat miso soup probably once a wee,  just miso paste and noodles.

I know there is a huge thread on the regular cooking board, but I thought I'd see if people wanted to start a similar thread here, so that they didn't have to wade through pages of ideas for rotisserie chicken. 

My first contribution would be the "I'm sick of pasta,  but I'm still broke, and I have all this pasta sauce" alternative to pasta.   Boil polenta (Cheap as dirt when  bought bulk)   
Put it on a big plate, pour some pasta sauce over it and add some grated cheese or parmesan (you can also add parm to the polenta at the last stages of boiling it)  then nuke it or put it in the oven till the cheese is melted.  15 minutes and without the cheese costs under a dollar.
