1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jeans to shorts, but what to do with leftover legs? on: June 11, 2006 12:08:22 PM
So, my son has blown the knees out in 3 pairs of jeans and I turned them into shorts.  Those leftover legs were really bugging me though.  I trimmed off the frayed parts, turned them inside out and sewed them across the bottom.  Then I took a long scrap of khaki and blue striped canvas that I had, just a little wider than the legs, and about half again as long as the legs lined end to end.  I sewed the sides of each pocket to the canvas and I have a hanging storage system for umm, whatever.  The sides should probably be turned under and hemmed.  Yeah, I didn't think of that until after and now it seems like a pain.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Limoncello-- Refreshing Summer Drink on: May 12, 2006 08:25:23 PM
So, I was thinking that summer is right around the corner and I'm gonna need a drink. I got a sun tea jug (2 gallons) with a spigot, glass, at Target for $20, but I bet I could have found one at a thrift store or just used plastic.  Or a huge pickle jar.  I was thinking I could use it to make sangria, but I decided I wanted something different.  I decided to make limoncello, which is popular in Italy.


1500 ML Vodka (cheap stuff is fine)
15 lemons
3 cups sugar
1 qt water

I dumped the vodka into the jug first.  Using a vegetable peeler, I took long strips of just the zest off of the lemon and dropped it straight into the vodka.  Then I put a strainer over the top of the jar to catch seeds and juiced all of the lemons into the vodka and zest.  After the lemons were juiced, I made a simple syrup by heating the water up to a boil and stirring in the sugar until it dissolved.  Then I added the hot syrup to the jar to bring out more of the oils from the lemon zest.  Traditionally, you let the mixture sit for a month or so before drinking, but I have poor impulse control.  I just had a healthy jigger of it mixed into a half a can of club soda and it was GOOD.  It's also good in ginger ale or lemonade.
