31  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: My lunch is going to taste sooo good tomorrow! on: June 13, 2006 08:48:34 AM
Very cool.  I'll have to see if I can find some 'manly' material for my husband and son.  Right now they put their lunches in plastic grocery bags because the crochet market bags I made them (in black!) are too girly.  Men can be such dorks.
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Fine Silver Flower and Vine Wedding necklace on: June 13, 2006 08:34:02 AM
That's beautiful.  What a lucky sister!  I hope you'll post a pic of her in the necklace on her wedding day.

Nicely done.  Your garden is gorgeous, too!

What a cool bag.  And books, too - lucky kid!
35  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Help for a beginning Vegetarian! on: May 24, 2006 03:06:23 PM
Start saying to yourself regularly "On June 8th I will be a vegetarian."  Sounds dorky, but that's what I did 16 years ago.  I never had the desire to eat meat again (now cheese, I struggle with that still.  I need to work on 'I'm a vegan.")

Read May All be Fed by John Robbins.  Less intense than Diet for a New America (which is fantastic, but sometimes daunting for some).  May All be Fed also has some tasty recipes in the back.  Also, The Vegan Sourcebook by Jo Stepaniak excellent for helping one cope with the emotional aspect as well as the eating aspect of the changeover.

Visit these helpful websites for some tasty recipes:

http://vegsource.com  This site also has excellent boards for support, with input by folks like Jo Stepaniak and Bryanna Clark Grogan

Check your library for any of these amazing cookbooks:
Table for Two, Vegan Vittles, Ultimate Uncheese, Saucy Vegetarian  by Jo Stepaniak (she has others, as well.  These are my favorites)
Nonna's Italian Kitchen, Authentic Chinese Cuisine by Bryanna Clark Grogan (she has others, as well.  These are my favorites)
Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson
How it all Vegan, Garden of Vegan, La Dolce Vegan - Tanya Barnard & Sarah Kramer

Cooking items I am never without:
brown rice
arborio rice (risotto)
canned black beans (I usually cook from dry, but for in-a-hurry)
canned garbanzo beans (I usually cook from dry, but for in-a-hurry)
canned tomatoes
tomato sauce
tomato paste
frozen corn
frozen green beans
frozen spinach
lots of spices (I buy the bagged kind - fresher and less expensive)
fresh herbs (I grow them)
fruit in season
other veggies in season

Good luck!  Don't beat yourself up if you have an off day.  Just begin where you left off.  It's all about the journey.


ps - if you're low iron, make sure you eat your iron-rich veggies with a fruit or veggie containing vitamin C.  It will help your body assimilate the iron better.

Hook them together for a beaded curtain effect.  My daughter used this as a closet door.

I hope you keep up on your work as a young designer and seamstress!
