1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Barbeque Menus? on: May 24, 2008 08:51:40 AM
I would love to hear your ideas for great, slightly unique
(nothing too crazy, I am surrounded by very picky eaters who are afraid to try new things) ideas for a great menu now that barbeque season is upon us.

So far, this is the plan for Monday (subject to change, especially if you guys come through with all the great ideas as you tend to):

Grilled sirloin tips marinated with a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar and tons of black pepper and garlic. Hopefully this will appeal to the carniverous folks because it is fairly familiar.

Chipotle lime shrimp skewers with lots of cilantro

A Grilled pork tenderloin probably marinated in mojo with a pineapple salsa

Corn on the cob, grilled of course, with a few different types of herb butter.

New potato salad  with roasted potatoes tossed with lemon zest, olive oil, garlic and dill.

Roasted veg salad with zuchinni, red onion, mushrooms, squash, and asparagus tossed in balsamic and olive oil.

and this may seem a bit odd, but trust me it's delicious... Tortellini tossed with roasted corn kernels, black beans, diced tomatoes, red onion, and a bit of chili pepper with a light cilantro dressing. It's a great pasta salad type thing.

I am also thinking a light and simple dessert like fresh strawberry shortcakes.

My menu is slightly less than coherent but I am going for variety without resorting to old favorites. What are your barbeque plans?
2  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / do any of you girls want my singer treadle machine? on: June 27, 2007 12:24:32 PM
does anyone want my treadle machine??

I bought one a year or two ago at a thrift store, and have never touched it. obviously, its old. i checked the serial number at one point in time and it was made around either 1890 or 1910, i dont remember which. the table part is not in great condition, it definitely needs some refinishing. and the drawer for the table is in pretty poor condition. i was told the machine still works, it just needs a new belt. i can't give the poor thing the love it needs right now, and i am oh so out of storage space. i'm willing to give it to anyone in the area who is willing to pick it up. i live in stratford. like i said, it needs some tlc, but it would be nice to see it restored. if anyone wants to give it a shot, i won't be upset if it doesn't work out and they have to junk it. i just feel bad about throwing something so pretty and old out without asking here first.

any takers?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have a sewing emergency! Someone please help me with the BBW tunic! on: June 25, 2007 09:43:15 AM
I am in big big trouble. I bought the Built By Wendy pattern for a dress/tunic, Simplicity 3964, and there was no instruction paper inside! I'd go back to the store, but I need to finish it this afternoon for a job interview tomorrow. Is there anyone who has the pattern who can give me a super quick overview of what to do?

 I sew quite a bit, so I could probably wing it, but I don't have time to start from scratch if I screw it up.

I'm most concerned about "installing" the yoke properly. So I just to know what order the pieces go together in, and if there's anything that is not very self explanatory.

I'd be forever in debt to whoever can help me!
