So you want to make a hot-dish but you're out of cream soup...

Don't despair... you can make your own. Not as crazy as it sounds if you have some stock around. I have no idea who this Tammy is, and didn't follow the recipe to the letter, but it worked! And the super trick was adding the frozen peas right into the creamy soupy mix before pouring it on the ground beef and then packing it with tots. Still some in the fridge. Nothing wrong with a 9:43 pm snack. Mmmmm 9:43 pm snaaaaack.

Yo! Go to this Show!

PARK(ing) Day Twin Cities

Let's face it. sometimes we shop because we are bored, have an extra half an hour and no other good ideas. Here's one: PARK(ing) Day Twin Cities this Friday September 17th. "Originally created by Rebar, San Francisco art and design collective, PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks." And here is a quick video.

Time for a Clothing Swap?

This is not your average clothing swap (which is fantastic in and of itself, more on swaps to come). At this one they have people showing you how to do minor alterations and have the sewing machines, etc. to do it?? Amazing.DSC_0697
