A veggie friend of mine also made amazing gyoza with ground round.  They're super tasty and though they're asian, the flavours aren't too out there, so he may like them.  Same goes for most Korean food.   If he's a fan of most fake meats, that simplifies things!  "Meat"loaf, "meat"ball subs, lasagna...

I feel your pain about pickiness.  My brother is very meat and potatoes too, and when he was diagnosed with hypoglycemia we had to try to expand his diet a little.  Creativity and lots of cheese...  Good luck!

I agree with the idea of eggplant parm, especially if you serve it with tonnes of mozzarella and/or as a sandwich with garlic bread.  Oh yeah!  I'm not even a veggie and it's one of my favorite meals.

Other tasty ideas:
Welsh rarebit (like fondu, but with beer.  Total man-pleaser)
lentil soup
potato (or potato-leek) soup
spanish tortilla
stuffed pasta shells, though this might not work with a pasta sauce instead of a cream one
angel hair pasta with fresh tomato, fresh basil, garlic, and olive oil
rizotto (especially one with spinach and herbs  YUM!)
ratatouille on a bed of rice or quinoa
home made mac and cheese, can't go wrong
Chana masaala and veggie samosas
perogies with fake bacon bits

Have you  managed to make him try tofu?  My fiancé and his friend once made vegan bulgogi with tofu that they had frozen to change the texture.  Tofu is lovely Smiley

My FMIL has been feeding us the past couple days.  Delicious ham Saturday and green chilli stew Sunday!  Plus leftover ham yesterday.  She also gave us some stew for tonight.  Tomorrow my parents feed us.  I'm feeling the love.

PS: Green chilli stew is amazing!

Alright, here's what I ended up crafting:

Felted mittens for my mom
A hedgehog painting for my sister
a painted bowl for my fiancé
pyjama pants for my brother
Caramel corn for a variety of people

My dad, my grandma, my sister's boyfriend, and my fiancé's family are all getting purchased presents because I ran out of time.

Yay! I'm so excited to have made the Facebook page!  Thanks!

Gypsyeharte, gel medium is like acrylic paint, only without any pigment.  You can get matte or gloss, and the kind that I have is gloss.  You can buy it by the jarfull at any art store.  I like to use it for collage adhesive or to play with transparency and body with acrylic paints.  You can also use it to transfer images.  It's basically my favorite art supply.

Les mystérieuses cités d'or!  I loved that show growing up.

Hi all!  I dropped in on the local Anthropologie store a couple weeks ago and left with a hole in my heart because of these ornaments

I went on a trip to Kenya in May and they reminded me of my trip.  Plus, they were made with recycled storybook pages, which I thought was just the bees knees. I wasn't willing to pay 16$ for them, though, so I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I made one for me and one for the prof who took me to Africa.

I couldn't get a good picture because of the shininess of the gel medium I used.  The giraffes are made with scrap paper, scotch tape, pages from an old Theory of Knowledge textbook, gel medium (lots of it!), and acrylic paint.

If I have time and patience, I may make a zebra too. We'll see.
50  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / First ever baby blanket on: December 10, 2010 07:49:52 AM
Hi craftsters!

My fiancé's cousin had a baby girl wednesday night, and I made this blanket in preparation.

It's an easy crocheted ripple stitch, nothing fancy, but I like it!  I chose the turquoise colour because at the time I didn't know if the baby would be a boy or a girl, and I HATE the typical pastels.  My FMIL thinks it's great because of the contrast between light and dark (babies can't see much colour at first).
