claychik: omg, that avocado looks so good
auntyalias: There
lindaslists: OMG. That is so cute. Better than the ships in a bottle
claychik: lol linda
auntyalias: ya the Avocado came out really nice, used canteloup rind for the seed
dahs512: The jar turned out great NJ
auntyalias: It's so like ships in a bottle and it was so quick and easy to do
auntyalias: I took it to Ruth's and Ruth, Sandy and her husband Jerry thought it was nifty, so did the cab driver
auntyalias: I'm showing everyone
auntyalias: LOL
claychik: lol
auntyalias: pushing the mini scene theme
dahs512: i made an easter basket...your influence
auntyalias: that's fresh celantro, thought I'd buy some to show folks
claychik: it IS really really cute
auntyalias: it's used in Mexican food a lot
claychik: ya, my mom uses it in guac
dahs512: got to have it in hot sauce
claychik: fresh salsa always has to have cilantro
auntyalias: it's wilting under the lights
dahs512: You can freeze it in water to use in stuff later
auntyalias: On Denise, thank you for that tip
auntyalias: I didn't want it to go to waste, but I can't use a whole bunch in a month
claychik: hey, the cilantro looks kinda cool behind the jar like that
auntyalias: ya, I thought so too, like jungle foliage
claychik: yeah!
auntyalias: Oh I've been spelling it wrong, Sharon?
auntyalias: I'm so Aunt Clara with my bad spells
claychik: huh?
dahs512: coriander seeds can be crushed for a similar flavor in a pinch
claychik: i think that cilantro is grown from coriander
auntyalias: Remember Aunt Clara in Bewitched? Her spells were all bad.
claychik: rofl!
dahs512: yes it is
dahs512: same stuff
auntyalias: so my spelling is so bad my older sister calls me Aunt Clara
claychik: lol that's cute
dahs512: don't sweat the petty
claychik: and don't pet the sweatyu
auntyalias: and don't pet the sweaty as Janey's husband says
claychik: lol
auntyalias: that just cracked me up
auntyalias: ok, so what do we have as Short Order Requests?
auntyalias: since we did chilies and tacos already
claychik: i want to see the tortillas rolled up like tacquitos
claychik: maybe tls and avocado for guac?
dahs512: with chicken, cilantro and cheese
claychik: mmmm
lindaslists: I sold 5 of my half pens and one of my hearts at work today. The pens are for the CNA's to wear on their lanyard for work and the heart was to be used as a worry stone.
claychik: and tomato bits in the guac
dahs512: ooh, and that on top
claychik: ooh, congrats linda
lindaslists: The pens have the eye screw in the top with a key ring attached\

claychik: i love these food demos
techi_mom56 joined the room
dahs512: Godd job on the sales Linda!
lindaslists: I would love to do country cooking. Buttermilk biscuits, country milk gravy with chunks of sausage in it, corn on the cob and fried chicken.
claychik: oh lord
lindaslists: Thanks Denise
dahs512: somebody is hungry
claychik: that sounds good
lindaslists: The Dietary manager at work wants me to make him a pork chop eraser
claychik: i really got hooked on the milk gravy when i was in tx
dahs512: I made "chicken-fried" tonight
claychik: maybe tls and a white/trans/pearl mix, with black embossing powder for the pepper specks
dahs512: The meat was Nilgi though
lindaslists: I've seen NJ do the chicken and the gravy would be easy. Saw the corn but now sure how to do the biscuits
claychik: a pork chop eraser would be cute!
auntyalias: Ok, I'm back
dahs512: yes it would
auntyalias: Hey Nancy
claychik: lol for the dietary manager to want a prok chop
techi_mom56: hi...survived the wedding...

techi_mom56: beautiful....concert piano playing ode to joy.....then to the 1800's restored pipe organ for the rest of the service...the judge (sandra) broke into tears...(has know the bride since she was a little girl
auntyalias: awww, bless her heart
auntyalias: I weep at weddings, even if I don't know the folks
auntyalias: but I'm a big cry baby
techi_mom56: then unity candle was lit to light guitar music
auntyalias: how did they like the clay roses?
auntyalias: you were working on them so hard
techi_mom56: and then a traditional hawiana hula (not the wiggle kind the talking hands) to elvis's wedding song
jude (greatauntjudy) joined the room
dahs512: Hey Jude
claychik: yayyyy!
claychik: hi jude!
jude: Howdy!
dahs512: nj is making guacamole
jude: YUM!
techi_mom56: i didnt cry didnt i saw my brother i hadnt seen in 2 years in the reception line...steve thought it was funny
dahs512: she took a pie section out of a slice of her avacado cane
auntyalias: Biz-Archive/food/Avocado-grp.htm
techi_mom56: the roses didnt get used...chuckle...type A mom changed her mind
auntyalias: jeese louise
auntyalias: well use them roses for something girlfriend
techi_mom56: oh i will...for sure
auntyalias: I'm going to mash up this TLS with the slice of avocado
techi_mom56: okay back to housework
auntyalias: see if we can't get a guacamole going on
auntyalias: then we'll top with some tomato diced up and some cilantro slivers
auntyalias: how's that?
jude: Onion?
jude: Some minced onion?
auntyalias: can't really see the onion in mini
dahs512: not in guac
claychik: sounds good to me nj
auntyalias: will just disappear
jude: Shoot.
auntyalias: you can put onions in anything you want Aunt Jude
dahs512: lol
auntyalias: that's your prerogative at the worktable
jude: Dice up some trans and bake? 
jude: LOL!
jude: then sprinkle?
jude: Hehehehe
auntyalias: hmmmm
auntyalias: now that's an idea
dahs512: so the kids can pick it off
auntyalias: wait up I do have Translucent Ice
claychik: lol
claychik: oh heck yes
jude: It is not guacamole without onion.
auntyalias: we can chop some of that up
auntyalias: it has pearl and glow in the dark
claychik: i looove onion
jude: It might look like onion.
auntyalias: so it'll show up better than plain trans
jude: Yes, good.
auntyalias: so let me get mashing on this then
jude: You got an Italian parsley to garnish?
jude: LOL!
claychik: i put onions in everything, but my bf can't tolerate them when they are raw
jude: I know, I know...go to my room.
claychik: which sucks
auntyalias: cilantro
auntyalias: got some fresh today for reference
dahs512: I used to hate onions, now I cook with them in almost everything
jude: I never really cared for cilantro that much. I'm a parsley person more.
dahs512: I use hot sauce in my guac instead
dahs512: and that has onions in it
jude: I can't eat the hot stuff. Darn. Used to, but no more.
dahs512: Nj put about an equal amount of tls next to the avacado slice
jude: That looks like egg to me.
dahs512: she is chop, chop, chopping
auntyalias: taking pictures as I go along
jude: Good idea.
auntyalias: filler clay
auntyalias: and then put the guacamole on top of that filler clay
dahs512: ooh
auntyalias: use the same colors you're working with
jude: Good idea that, too.
jude: I like to bowl, too.
techi_mom56 left the room
claychik: ooh, and it's all nice and chunky too, like real guac
jude: I was thinking of doing a faux wood one and putting Mexican schtuff in that.
jude: I do like it a bit chunky, too.
claychik: good idea jude
claychik: omg that looks totally real
jude: Amazing, isn't it?
claychik: i love multi-purpose canes
jude: Yes, tomatoes>
dahs512: she is taking a little piece of tomatoe and wil cut pieces to add to the guac
claychik: perfect!
jude: Mexican food is so colorful!
jude: Not to mention yummy.
claychik: heck yes
dahs512: looks great NJ
dahs512: easy breezy
jude: Perfect!
jude: Now, if you had some dried up bell pepper seeds, you'd have some chips!
claychik: ooh, i have some of those!
auntyalias: onions for you Jude
jude: Tortilla chips are better, though, huh?
dahs512: lol
jude: Thanks! YUM!
dahs512: they look real
claychik: yeah
claychik: that is so awesome
jude: Onions are an old, old, one of the oldest foods.
claychik: now chopped green bits for the cilantro
claychik: too cool
auntyalias: little garnish
jude: The colors are great.
auntyalias: see how I scraped up the green off of the tile?
auntyalias: In little circular motions
dahs512: do again
claychik: it fluffed it up a little
auntyalias: round and round and it makes frilly edges
jude: For the cilantro, you mean?
claychik: yep
auntyalias: Like that
jude: I'd probably put a bit through my pm at the smallest setting. It curls stuff right up.
claychik: like with lettuce
jude: Your way is probably faster, though.
claychik: that looks fabulous, nj
auntyalias: just got the picture of it
claychik: kewl
auntyalias: ok, I'm going to take a break and get these pix up, it'll take about 20 minutes

dahs512: too tiny for shots
auntyalias: I think they are better too, but we don't cover as much ground is all
auntyalias: quality for quantity
auntyalias: I guess
auntyalias: brb

jude: I will have to leave again, but will be back later. If you are around, I will.
dahs512: I think the pictures you take will be a lot better than screen shots
