41  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Easy "I feel lazy" meal (low carb) on: January 23, 2007 07:34:45 PM
I found this recipe somewhere, it stuck in my mind, and I made it for dinner tonight.  Sorry I can't give credit where credit is due.

1 lb ground beef
1 cup shredded cheese
1 cup salsa

Brown the beef.  Stir in the cheese and allow it to melt.  Stir in the salsa.  Serve.  Easy peasy.

If you are not low-carbing, serve this with some rice or tortillas.
42  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Indian vegetarian food on: January 16, 2007 07:43:23 PM
My favorite cuisine is Indian.  It is my mother's favorite cuisine also, and she's an avid cook, so I grew up eating a lot of Indian curries.  Neither I nor my parents are vegetarian, but my parents are old-school Catholic, so on Fridays (Lent or not) we didn't eat meat.  We'd eat cauliflower-and-potato curry, or dhal (lentils), or vegetable biryani.  I'll share some recipes if there's interest...
43  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Partners in Crime - Raggedy Ann and 2 kitties on: January 16, 2007 06:38:47 PM
I've just finished a cross stitch project I've been working on for the past few months.

It's from a kit.  Don't hurt me. Smiley  The kit is Sunset #13709, Partners in Crime.  It caught my eye for two reasons: (1) I'm a cat person, and (2) my favorite childhood toy was a Raggedy Ann doll that a friend of my mother's made for me for my second birthday.  I still have the doll, and she's a bit the worse for wear (her face is embroidered, and I've had to re-embroider her facial features more than once), but perhaps I will pass her on to a daughter or granddaughter someday. Smiley

The kit introduced me to cording, a technique I haven't used before.  I used it for the strand of yarn that the cats are pulling out of Raggedy Ann's head.  As soon as I read about the technique, ideas for pillows and Christmas ornaments started popping into my mind.

So here it is:



Please forgive the poor picture quality.  I got the image by plopping the finished work onto my scanner.  I don't own a digital camera (yet).
44  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Metro-North commuters who stitch? on: January 13, 2007 07:04:39 PM
Just wondering if anyone is like me...

I live in Fairfield County, CT, and I have a full-time job in New York City.  I always carry a small needlepoint or cross-stitch project with me, and I stitch during my evening commute.  A few fellow commuters have admired my work.

I've occasionally seen fellow commuters doing needlepoint or crochet.  It's a great conversation starter.  There's also a group of 4 men who always take the 6:13 train out of Grand Central, and play bridge during the hour-long ride to South Norwalk, where two (maybe three) of them detrain.

Anyway, if there are any New Haven Line crafty commuters around here, please let me know.  Perhaps we can start a mobile stitching group? Wink
