Tequilaberry’s Salad

Yesterday I made a super good salad.  We will be eating off of that for a week.  It seemed to take me forever to cut up all the salad fixings because I cut them as small as I can.  The dressing that we love to make is a recipe from a restaurant in Coon Rapids, Minnesota called Tequilaberry’s, that has since closed down.  I remember beseeching the staff for their dressing recipe and at that time they wouldn’t give it out.  Time has passed and I finally found it on the internet.  My daughter was never super crazy about salads, although she will eat them.  When I make this salad though she keeps begging for more. I found out that chopping the fixings into small sizes gives more surface area for the dressing to adhere to.  That is why it took so long to get the salad fixings ready. Boy – it is worth it though.

Here is what I used in the salad: 1 whole head of lettuce, 2/3 of a large bunch of endive or leaf lettuce, 1/2 bag of baby carrots, 1 whole head of cauliflower, 1 bunch of celery hearts, “LOTS” of crumbled bacon either bought or homemade, “LOTS” of parmesan powdered cheese.  I put tomatoes and green onions in mine but not in my daughters, because she doesn’t like them.  I don’t put the bacon and parmesan cheese on the salad until we are ready to eat it so the salad stays crunchy.  Of course then I add the yummy Tequilaberry salad dressing and chow down!

The Tequilaberry’s dressing I found on this site: http://www.chindeep.com/2010/02/27/tequilaberrys-salad/.  The dressing calls for 1 cup of Hellman’s Mayonnaise.  It has to be Hellman’s.  That is what gives the dressing the good taste.  You add 1 to 1-1/2 cups of parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of sugar.  The recipe also calls for 2-1/2 tablespoons of white vinegar.  I use only about 2 tablespoons and I also add a little more Hellmans.  Mix it all together and put it on the salad when you’re ready and sit down and enjoy!  Even non-salad eaters will like this salad!

Scrap Bowling – A Tutorial

I need to make some of these in a larger size for my cats. So cute!!

piecedgoods

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot little scraps and things that get generated in the process of sewing things.  Little triangles of fabric that need to be clipped off.  Thread tangles. Lint balls.  Other things I don’t want tangled up and sewn into quilts and other projects.  I also have a whole lot of little bits of fabric scraps that I cannot bear to chuck. Lots of these scraps end up in quilts, but some are home decorator weights of fabrics that I don’t want to mix into quilts.  Plus there’s all those bits of pieces of batting that are left over and too small to piece onto other batting.  Here’s one thing to do with those bits and pieces.

I’m assuming that anyone reading this and making one knows how to sew more than straight flat lines.   There’s a little math involved too if…

Beautiful! With sound effects!
If you look up ‘wittydud’ on Youtube he has more videos of a similar nature. One is of the deep sea and another of galloping horses, and many more of God’s natural world that our creator has made for us to live in. These kind of videos move me immensely. I think you will love them also!

25 Things That You Should Do To Get Prepared For The Coming Economic Collapse

Edwardian -Pictures

I love old pictures. Here is a blog with great turn of the century pictures! Have a look.

The Library Time Machine

I have good reason to be grateful to Edward Linley Sambourne. My original post about his street photography (Street Style 1906) has been the most popular single item on this blog and has brought in many readers who might not otherwise have heard about the Library Time Machine. What is it about his street photography which is so compelling?

The first point is one I made on that first post. We are used to thinking of the Edwardian period as the last great period of formal dress for women and men, the last gasp of 19th century fashion and the ancien regime of costume before the revolution of the Great War and the 1920s. Sambourne’s pictures show another side to the early years of the 20th century, a casual attitude to dress demonstrated by the mostly young women in them. The roots of the dress revolution…

Inspired by a version of the opening sequence of this clip called ‘What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth?’, I tracked down the original time-lapse sequence taken on the International Space Station (ISS) via NASA, found some additional ones there, including the spectacular Aurora Australis sequences, and set it to a soundtrack that almost matches the awe and wonder I feel when I see our home from above.

To those brave men and women who fly alone in the night to take us to the stars, we salute you.

Sequences:

1. North-to-south down the western coast of North and South America.
2. North-to-south over Florida, the Bahamas and other Caribbean islands.
3. South-East Asia, approaching the Philippine Sea
4. Western Europe, from France through Italy, Greece, Turkey and the Middle East.
5. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean, approaching Australia
6. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean.
7. Aurora Australis, unknown location in the Southern Hemisphere.

Explanation from NASA: Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth’s thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes.
