Your costume is beautiful.  How innovative.   It is more of a piece of art, than a costume. 

I'll have to remember this one for when I'm a mom.

Air popped popcorn is my favorite.  I like to spray it with a little olive oil and then sprinkle different seasonings on it.  My fav is brewer's yeast , but you can add anything you want.  If you need something sweet sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.  So goood!

This is a helpful link with information on cooking without eggs.

This is a great one on making your own nut milks.  So much yummier than store bought because you can make it to your taste!

This one has great Indian vegetarian food.  There are so many options and they are all so good.

This one has vegan and vegetarian food from all over the world.

I hope this helps.

Oh my, dollmaker.  I am obsessed with candy canes.  And your candy cane cookie recipes just took that obsession a little further!
Thank you.

I would make him something for his cabin.  Maybe find a solid colored lampshade or take the frame of an old lampshade and wrap and glue parchment paper around it. Then paint it with some simple black bear stencils (for an extra cool glow spray the inside of the lampshade gold. It looks really cool with the black).  You can do some stitch/lacing at the top and bottom, too, for a nice effect. Use a punch to make holes, evenly spaced, around the bottom and top of the lampshade. Run ribbon or something like leather through the holes, back and forth from bottom to top, making a crisscross pattern.

hmmm...I may have to make one of these now...
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: it's fall! that means soup! post your favorites here! on: November 18, 2006 10:15:51 AM
This is my favorite soup.  It's tasty, healthy, and hearty and makes you feel warm and fuzzy.  The second time I made it I used less peanut butter for a lighter version that was also very yummy.  It is a vegan stew, but my meat eating boyfriend loves this soup as much as I do.  It's also really easy and fun to modify.  You can use sweet potatoes or white potatoes instead of yams, and any dark leafy green instead of kale. 

Tongue African Stew Tongue

4 cups vegetable stock, homemade (low sodium, low fat)
1 onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- minced
2 cups yams -- peeled and diced
1 cup cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup brown rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups kale -- chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
tamari soy sauce -- optional
chili sauce


Saute onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons of the stock, adding more stock if necessary, or in 1 tablespoon oil in large pot over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add remaining stock, yams, chickpeas, rice and salt; simmer for 45 minutes.

In small bowl, blend peanut butter and 1/2 cup of liquid from stew to make a smooth paste. Stir into stew along with kale and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and tamari (if using.) Add chili sauce to taste. Adjust seasonings.

Excellent source of magnesium, potassium, folate, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamins A, B6 and C. Good source of calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin E.

I love it.  I can almost smell the lily.  Hope you don't mind, but I saved it on my computer as my desktop background.  Wink

My boyfriend must NEVER see these.  I would never hear the end of his begging me to make him a pair.

Great job.
10  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Re: A rustic mountain-woman shawl on: November 14, 2006 06:47:14 PM
Summer Lee, your shawl is beautiful!  I love woven textiles.  "Yay," for weavers!

If it was not for the weavers, what would you do?
You wouldn't have the clothes that's made of wool
You wouldn't have a coat of the black or the blue
If it was not for the work of the weavers

My friend's father would sing that song.  His wife wove. 

I would like to learn to weave.

Very nice work.
