  • in reply to: Fried potatoes #430986

    My mom made these, but not for breakfast – they were a side dish for dinner (evening meal). Yummm. My mom called them “Stick together potatoes”, because that’s what they did.

    Maybe not heart healthy, but totally worth it, and not really that bad if you aren’t a couch potato. Just get up and move if you’re in reasonable health.

    Went to the site and this is what I found out. Apparently, they underanticipated the response and have closed the offer. Just letting everyone know.

    Caron International Yarn for Knit and Crochet “We’ve had an OVERWHELMING response to our yarn giveaway. Thousands and thousands of requests have come in just today. So…we’ve had to close down the request line.

    Hopefully we’ll be able offer more sample yarn in the future. Thanks everyone for your interest and participation.”

    Sure wish ours had the plastic bottoms here in Texas. Just the solid molded bottom thats not removable.

    in reply to: Uses for empty 2-liter bottles? #420965

    I use them to hold water and put into my potted plants for self watering. There is a gadget I bought at Harbor Freight that the bottles screw onto. Invert and stick into the soil.

    Kind of like an inexpensive version of those glass things that are on the As Seen On TV aisle at Walmart. The item is called Watering Cones and they come in a package of 6 for about $5 if I remember right.

    have you tried using this in the wilton buttercream icing? does it work okay?
    i just finished a cake decorating class and found a diabetic version of the buttercream icing, but i don’t like butter. this if is works out okay would be a much better way to do it.

    thanks for posting it.

    in reply to: help on freezing #402715

    Yeah, works out just fine. We used to go to buy bacon out in the country, before gas cost so much and buy 10 lbs or so of bacon divide it up into what we’d use for one breakfast and freeze it.

    Knitting I can do – well at least on two straight needles. I haven’t been too successful with circular needles although many, many years ago I did manage a project on double pointed needles – under my mom’s watchful eye. Crochet, well, my mom could do that as well, but it really isn’t my forte’.

    I ran across a tutorial page on circular knitting the other day. Will have to go back and find the link and will post it here.

    in reply to: Free G-String #400704

    I just need to find my waistline again so that a g-string would look good on me. Wonder just how large they make them?
