Check out my wife on The Little Metal Dog Show talking about her game, Story Realms!
If you’re any sort of geek at all, you’re going to know who Felicia Day is. I’m not even going to list any credentials; she’s just that awesome. Anyway, her YouTube show, The Flog, is fun and funny. Yesterday, she answered a reader question about what superhero powers she would have, as well as name and sidekick. She came up with the powers to speak all languages, and to become invisible. Her name would be Invislingua, and her sidekick would be Tiny Man. She colored (with crayons! :)) a picture, and then asked watchers to make their own pictures and tweet to her. Tweet set! Here is my picture:
Also goache. Like?
Hey there! I’ve been a bit busy and not devoting any time to art, so I thought it was time to try something out. I had a set of goache paints sitting around that I had been meaning to bust out and try, so I thought it would be fun to have a couple joint art projects with the kids. They each did their own pieces, of course, and I had the opportunity to add some color to some line drawings I made for that purpose. Here’s what I ended up with:
Overall, pretty happy with it. I can certainly see combining that with watercolors for backgrounds. Anyway, I’ll post more when I have it.
Easy Vegetarian Sloppy Joes
2 boxes (8 patties) “Flame-grilled” Boca Burgers, thawed or defrosted
1/4 medium red onion, finely chopped
1-1/4 cup ketchup
2/3 cup brown sugar
8 large sesame seed buns
2 tablespoons olive oil
grated or sliced cheddar chees (optional)
1. In a large skillet, add the olive oil and the onions. Saute on medium heat for a couple minutes.
2. Crumble the Boca burger patties into the skillet; use a spatula to break up larger pieces. Saute on medium heat for a couple minutes.
3. Add the brown sugar and ketchup, stirring well. The color should be uniform. Saute on medium heat for a couple minutes, then simmer on low heat for about ten minutes.
4. Serve hot on sesame seed buns. If you like, add greated or sliced cheddar on top. Serves eight.
This has become a favorite comfort food in our household. It is pretty quick to make and everyone loves them. Even if you do not plan on serving eight sandwiches, I advise making your batch that size. The sloppy joe mixture stores well in the refrigerator for several days, and microwaves quickly.
