This is one of those staple recipes that you can do a lot with. I stumbled onto this when running into a block as to what to make for dinner and had an abundance of various basic ingredients and no where, so to speak, to go with them. It is one of those dishes that is great by itself or can be modified to your liking, a basis for a bigger meal or just a comfort meal like soup and very filling. After you make this there's no going back to the helper meals.
For whatever reason that you have to do a makeover on a wedding gown, it can be a headache if you are in a hurry. Thus, my point is, when you are working with any kind of gown, it is next to impossible to be in a hurry, given the kind of fabric you are working with. Whether it be sheer, nylon blend, organza, silk, or antique lace (which is the worst, by the way), you simply cannot be in a hurry unless you're some kind of genie!
Oh yeah, you may not hear a lot about it anymore, but there are still a lot of people still using their bread machine or bread maker. When these fantastic machines came out, they were a big hit, because the machine does most, or all, of the work for you. You no longer have to have a floured board and rolling pin to make bread products from scratch. The only thing is that I have not seen grocery shelves full of bread machine mixes like there used to be. Every now and then, I see a couple of boxes. They kind of went by the wayside, which made everyone think it was a fad when in fact, people have learned how to mix their own bread mixes for their machine, and, yes, they still sell them! But, you may have to go to the specialty stores to find them.
There is really not a separate line between illustrating fashion and actually making it. These things go hand in hand. There are very few of us that are so good at it we don't even need to try very hard. This is a very big misconception of the facts. It's is, indeed, hard work. It's hard for everyone. Especially those who have the calling and what it takes. Haven't you heard the saying "Anything that's worth something is never easy?"
Okay, I'm not going to lie to you. I'm no pro when it comes to espresso, but I know what I like, and that's the important thing. Fact is, I am not good at making that all important foam and artistic pictures like hearts, swans, and such. You don't have to be! But I did recently find out about the steam that makes the foam. Don't feel bad if you mess this up, even burn yourself learning how to do it, because it kind of takes practice. So, keep trying you'll get it, at least that's what they tell me! :-)
Back when I lived in Dallas, Texas I used to have a small garden but, all that would seem to grow in it was cilantro, green beans and small bunch onions. So, needless to say, you got what cha got!
