Common belief is that it originated from the Spanish Paella, which has also transformed in the United States to a dish called Spanish Rice. It can be made (separately or all together) with ham, chicken, sausage, fresh pork, shrimp and oysters, to which is added shortening, rice, onion, garlic, pepper and other seasonings.
Starting with church fairs, which were the largest public gatherings at the turn of the century, jambalaya emerged from small quantity indoor cooking to become the ideal dish for outdoor cooking over hardwood fire. Chop all vegetables, holding out half the parsley and all the green onion tops to add at the end. Leon Pantenburg is a wilderness enthusiast, and doesn't claim to be a survival expert or expertise as a survivalist.
As a newspaperman and journalist for three decades, covering search and rescue, sheriff's departments, floods, forest fires and other natural disasters and outdoor emergencies, Leon learned many people died unnecessarily or escaped miraculously from outdoor emergency situations when simple, common sense might have changed the outcome. Leon now teaches common sense techniques to the average person in order to avert potential disasters. After graduating from Iowa State University, Leon completed a six-month, 2,552-mile solo Mississippi River canoe trip from the headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minn., to the Gulf of Mexico. His wilderness backpacking experience includes extended solos through Yellowstone’s backcountry; hiking the John Muir Trail in California, and numerous shorter trips along the Pacific Crest Trail.
Some of Leon's canoe trips include sojourns through the Okefenokee Swamp and National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia, the Big Black River swamp in Mississippi and the Boundary Waters canoe area in northern Minnesota and numerous small river trips in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest.
Since 1991, Leon has been an assistant scoutmaster with Boy Scout Troop 18 in Bend, and is a scoutmaster wilderness skills trainer for the Boy Scouts’ Fremont District.

Who is the newest caped crusader to stalk the city at night, taking down villains and bringing justice to the streets?
When he challenged me to make this mask for him, Justin mentioned that in addition to crime fighting, he was planning to wear it in an upcoming race.
Thanks to everyone for being so patient while I reworked this pattern and especially to everyone who provided feedback. Note: In rounds 39-51, you will need to remove and replace PMs at beginning and end of each round. You should now have 24 sts in the eyehole and nosepiece area plus 56 sts around the back of the head. Trace the ear shape onto the back of a black dvd case (minus the plastic film cover) or plastic canvas and cut out. Sandwich the plastic piece in between the larger ear piece and the smaller ear piece and sew up the sides. See a mistake or something I overlooked, please let me know in the comments or at squirrelpicnic{at}gmail{dot}com. My daughter is a HUGE Batman fan – to the point she has the Bat symbol on the hood of her car.
I just started crocheting and would like to do this in a smaller size is there a pattern for smaller sizes? Pondering the theme of unlikely friends as I was brainstorming the construction for this Make It!
Usually an amigurumi is created by working in the round (crocheting in a spiral to create spheres). I wondered what would happen if I started instead with a flat surface, like a granny square. When I held my call for submissions last year, I received two suggestions that happened to coincide.
To play, you simply pop one of these contestants onto your thumb, lock hands with your opponent, say “One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war,” and wrestle thumbs until someone’s thumb is pinned or the crochet thumb wrestler falls off.
I hope you enjoy crocheting these and holding a Thumb Wrestling World Championship of your own. The detail I liked most from all the play sets I encountered was how some of them transformed into a bag or box to hold all the little pieces of the set. But with all the characters Hasbro has made into potatoes, I think there are a few opportunities they missed.
In order to attach these features to the spud, I decided to sew a small shank-backed button onto each feature.
As you could probably already guess, for this challenge Shelby asked me to make him a zombie version of myself (a zombie self-portrait if you will).
As a final note, I should mention that this pattern doesn’t include how to make clothing for your zombie.
As I type this, our zombies look very cute sitting on the couch together and holding hands. It is an educational tool and is considered an important contribution to a child's development.

I recently discovered an inexpensive and super fast way to give your squirrel amigurumi a head that turns. Jambalaya, chili, red beans and rice, lentil soup with brown rice and venison stew are some of my favorites, and jambalaya always makes a tasty, healthy lunch. I like rice in just about anything, and the combination of vegetables, rice and game meat are particularly good.
Jambalaya is a bit different many times as it incorporates seafood , ham, link sausage rounds and chicken, although it doesn’t have to have all those ingredients.
Return squirrel meat to the pan, and cook another 30 minutes, then return the rest of the meat to the pot and enough water to cover. I have successfully used this method, but use another most often since I like getting the bone out of the tail, and saving the bristles for tying fishing lures.

With this in mind, I chose to use a bamboo viscose and silk blend yarn that would create a fabric that is light, breathable, and comfortable against the skin. The second half of the pattern, which creates the area below the eyebrows, has been revised so that instructions for the eyehole and nosepiece area are given between place markers, making it easier to keep track of the stitch count. I’ve added stitch counts at the end of each round and for the eyehole and nosepiece area where needed.
Updated photos of the beginning of the eyehole and nosepiece area should make this part of the pattern clearer. Across the 20 sts of the eyehole and nose area: sc 9, 2 sc in next sc, 3 sc in next sc, sc 9. My 6-year old (Batman-crazy) son just asked me for one and I wouldn’t know where to start… Now I do! At this point, you have chained 12 and joined the chain with slst to the 9th st from the top of the nosepiece (between the eyes). I decided to start at the corner of a square to create a beak, and then working out from there, I could create a striped pattern that would mimic the bird’s coloration.
Sharon and Shane from Melbourne, Australia, challenged me to make a ninja, and Vanja from Osijek, Croatia, challenged me to make a sumo wrestler.
In addition to the farm one, I found a safari play set, a teddy bear picnic, a flower pot play set, a racetrack, and lots and lots of toy food. The animals are very quick to make because most of their limbs are crocheted in the final rounds. I have also included PDF templates so you can cut out felt features for each of the four characters.
This button can then be inserted into any of the holes created naturally between the crochet stitches on the doll’s body. Since the start of Squirrel Picnic, he’s had to put up with crochet squirrels coming on vacation with us, weekends sacrificed to endless crochet craziness, and a living room that is almost always covered in yarn. I set my heart on a few details from the start: an exposed brain with a flap of scalp, an eye that could pop out of the socket, and an arm that’s been cut off at the elbow. However, at the end of each pattern, I’ve listed links to the free sewing patterns I used to make my zombies’ clothes.
Cut wood boards into the eight pieces needed for the squirrel feeder and drill a hole in the side of the squirrel feeder for a doorway. Beyond the educational virtues, coloring sessions allow us, the adults, a little peace and quiet while the boy or girl enjoy coloring.
Just work the head section of my squirrel pattern through the last round, leaving 6 stitches remaining and a little hole. I’m finding this technique is faster than sewing on their heads, so it’s an extra bonus! Every technique, piece of equipment or skill recommended on this website has been thoroughly tested and researched. By paying with a credit card, you save an additional $5 and get 6 issues of MOTHER EARTH NEWS for only $12.00 (USA only). I’m happy to help you with this, but I want to make sure I understand where you are stuck. Sheena from Virginia challenged me to make unlikely friends amigurumi, meaning animals that don’t normally hang out together.
The art of using intricate folds to turn a two-dimensional surface into a three-dimensional object seems about as far away from crochet as you can get. The tough part was determining how to fold this one square so that it took a form that would stay together and do it in a way that would be easy for others to duplicate. In addition to the ninja and sumo wrestler, the contestants include a luchador and Hulk Hogan, the famous WWF personality. Challenge proposals, with only three slots to fill, it also made for a very difficult decision. It is especially gratifying to be able to publish a pattern that makes so many people happy. Through my research, I found a few barnyard play sets already in existence, including this free one from Lion Brand (you have to log in to view the free pattern). No one had made an ocean play set though, and I instantly fell in love with the idea of crocheting an island surrounded by little ocean animals.

At this beach, you don’t have to worry about sunburn or sand that works its way into everything. Just picture it: Tiger Spuds, Morgan Fryman, Spuddy Holly, Elisabeth Shue-string Fry, Oprah French Fry, Vladimir Poutine, Mashton Kutcher, James Hashbrowns, to name a few (thanks to Becky for many of these ideas!). For that reason, it might be wise to crochet the body first and then purchase buttons to fit. Of those three details, the eyes were the hardest, and I’m still not thrilled with how bug-eyed my zombie looks. Most 16” to 18” doll clothes patterns will fit your zombie, but do a fitting with the pattern before you start.
Drill a hole just larger than the diameter of your glass jar out of the front panel, assemble the feeding station and glue a large glass jar to the front.
Not to mention the result: coloring pages for preschoolers are proudly presented at the nursery, kindergarten or even grandma and grandpa's living room! Please note the images are not hosted on our servers, hence some of the images might not download. It’s even been said to have better moisture-wicking properties than cotton or polyester. My best advice is to use the same yarn that I used or a brand that has a similar ratio of bamboo viscose and silk. Sc in the next 12 scs past (moving away from) the eyehole (not into the chain sts or the ring created by the chain), dec and continue with pattern around to the other side. We talked about a few different examples before we decided that a penguin and a parrot would make an unlikely pair.
I really loved the play set idea, so Brittani and her son agreed to let me come up with a unique alternative. Update: A friend of the blog, Ankhara, suggested to pull the drawstring out from two opposite sides of the play set to close it. The sharks even play nice here! I hope you enjoy making an island play set of your very own. I’d love to see photos if you do! Potato Head kits came with ears, eyes (two pairs), facial hair (eight pieces of felt), feet, hands, hats (three), mouths (two), noses (four), and a pipe. In the end, for this challenge, I decided on making Channing Potatum, Tater Swift, and Barack Au Gratin for my real-life celebrity potatoes.
So when I decided to make a zombie version of my husband to accompany the zombie version of me, I chose to simplify the construction of some of the details. There are a lot of free American Girl Doll clothes patterns online, and from what I could tell, most of them will fit your zombie with minimal tweaking.
Attach the top of the feeder with hinges, paint or decorate the structure and drill the squirrel feeder onto a tree. If you like to completely remove your website from our search engine index, please follow the instructions below, "Remove from Index". Plus it’s an environmentally friendly choice because it is an easily renewable resource. This project was the first time I had ever used bamboo yarn so I can only vouch for Patons bamboo-silk blend. In the end, sewing a second smaller square on the front and folding the head and wings forward and the tail back was the easiest answer.
Challenge series in the first place and why I’ve decided to continue it for another year.
And then I threw in Harry Potater, because, well, Harry Potter’s name just screams make me into a potato. Fill the mason jar with nuts, seeds, dried fruit and other squirrel treats and consider placing a small water bowl in the box area. It is designed to be form-fitting and I have not yet found another yarn that achieves this. Sc across the eye and nose area (sc in each of the 8 remaining right eyehole chains, sc in each of the 8 nose sts, sc in each of the 8 remaining left eyehole chains).
A penguin in the Amazon would be a sweaty mess and a parrot in Antarctica would shiver his feathers off. The bodies and appendages are basically the same, but details like the eyes, brain opening, hair, and limbs are more complicated on the girl zombie. You’ll insert the head (eye) of a safety eye into the hole on the head of your squirrel and pull the tail tightly to close the hole around the post of the safety eye. Some of my favorites include party hats, pierced ears, handcuffs, bare feet, a pirate’s peg leg and eye patch, and a hockey player’s gap-toothed grin. And, yes, he advised me on everything for this project, even coming with me to the yarn shop to pick out zombie colors. Have fun picking and choosing which details you like between the girl and boy zombies to make your zombie uniquely your own.
