1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Gingham Skirt (first sewing pattern project!) on: July 22, 2007 02:31:14 PM
Hello! This is the first sewing project I have made from a pattern. It is McCall's M5390 and it is pattern C.
I wanted to make this cute 50s style skirt for our trip to Memphis.
Please pardon the ridiculous facial expression (I really don't know where it came from!!) and really bad hair in the second shot... I got home from work and was non stop working to finish this up!!
I think it turned out pretty well, except I used too short a zipper so it has to go on over my head (oops) and the high waist might be difficult for me to wear too long. I hope you like it!

2  UNITED STATES / West Virginia / Cool places in WV? on: July 18, 2007 02:58:45 PM
My fiance and I are going to be in West Virginia and we're looking for fun places to visit, like cafes or record stores, or other points of interest.
We are staying in Lansing, which I know is a small town, but if you know of anything around there that would be fun to visit, let us know!
Thanks for your help, and if you are ever in Wisconsin, I'll fill you in on our stuff Smiley
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Use for damaged bicycle frame? Perhaps table? on: January 22, 2005 04:24:48 PM
So I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with a good use for a slightly damaged road bicycle frame. I would like to make it into a furniture piece of some sort, was thinking an end table or perhaps a wall art. I was wondering if anyone had anything in mind and might be able to help with a concept for this! It is just in the thought stages, so don't know if I will actually make anything of it, or if it will just hang on the wall in my hopeful future bicycle themed living room. It is, after all, just a frame, there are no rims or pedals or anything on it, so I'm not sure how this could theorhetically turn into a table or anything...
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Favorite family recipes?? on: June 23, 2004 08:03:21 PM
I was going to post these to the cheap eats board, but decided to start a new thread instead!! I found these in my mom's recipe file.... The only one which requires a bit of advance prep is the sticky buns recipe, but the sticky buns are fab (don't worry if they look weird when you cover them for the night, they will look and taste great after they bake!!!). They turn out kind of carmalized. Mmm...
What are everyone's favorite family recipes?? or favorite recipes in general? Pick a few and post em if you want!

Sticky Buns

-18 Rhodes dinner rolls (frozen)
         Put rolls in buttered bundt pan
-1 pkg. regular butterscotch pudding (not 3.5 oz instant!!)
-1/2 stick butter or margarine
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-3/4 tsp. cinnamon
-1 cup pecans (or other nuts...)

Mix sugar and cinnamon. Place rolls in greased pan, sprinkle pudding (unprepared powder) over rolls. Drizzle melted butter over rolls - add nuts on top. Distribute sugar mixture over rolls. Cover with wax paper. Let rise overnight. DO NOT REFRIGERATE!!!! Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes the following morning.


Shepard's Pie

Brown: 2 lbs of hamburger or turkey meat (fake meat would probably work well also, just be sure to get something like crumbles)
-1 large onion, chopped
-1 cup peas (canned)
-1 cup cream style corn
-1 cup chopped carrots

Put all in a casserole dish, cover with about 8 prepared servings of mashed potatoes (can be from a box or homemade). Bake in oven for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.


Breakfast Pizza

-1 lb. pork sausage, Canadian bacon, or ham (can also use some of the meatless breakfast sausage, either crumbles of it or chop up the meatless sausage patties; or use other fake meat)
-1 pkg. crescent rolls
-1 cup frozen hash browns
-1 cup shredded cheese--cheddar, swiss or jack.
-5 eggs
-1/8 tsp. pepper
-1/4 cup milk
-2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
-1/2 tsp. salt

Brown sausage. Place crescent rolls over bottom and up on sides of 9X13 pan (or pizza pan--my mom has made it both ways, I have made in in a pizza pan). Add sausage, potatoes, and cheese atop the crescent rolls on pan.
Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, and pour over all.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Serves 6-8

Hope you enjoy these!!! They are great for entertaining. My mom used to make the sticky buns and breakfast pizza for our annual x-mas day brunch with my grandparents.
