fabric

i found a ton of lovely grass green fabric at the thrift store yesterday. it was draped over my chair air drying and i realized it would be good fabric to recover my chair(s) in. which is a good thing. but i was excited to cut it up into bags, etc. and it might not be enough to cover both chairs- i doubt it. hmmmm. what to do.

soyrizo mac n cheez-o


i made this recipe again the other day, and i'm still eating leftovers! (when i first found the recipe it had the tagline "hamburger helper on crack" to go with it, but it's since been removed. it was a fitting tagline!) it's quite yummy and i highly recommend it. the recipe is from vegweb. (i make it without the corn.) click here to get the ingredients/directions and then make it. and enjoy.

more spring craft fair goodness


local spring craft fairs are bursting out of metro detroit like nothing else!
some of our crafty friends will be vending here:

Spring Fling …A Craft Thing, From 12 noon to 7 p.m., twenty craftspeople/artists will set up shop at Ferndale’s newest pool hall, The Loving Touch. Owned by the proprietors of the WAB and The Emory, and producers of the D.I.Y. Street Fair, the Loving Touch is not your average pool hall; with an atrium, greenery and beautiful wood d├ęcor, it was an easy choice to hold this new event.Spring Fling is FREE and open to all ages.Music will be provided during the entire show by DJs Daniel (Daniel Johnson), Ryan Allen (Friendly Foes and Thunderbirds are Now!), and JRC (of the popular blog EatThisCity.com).
