Steak, Vegetables, and Japanese Eggplant in wok

Steak, Vegetables, and Japanese EggplantI love to cook but, I dont like to use recipes. I have a knack for mixing and matching different vegetables and ingredients that are in the house. Because I have a rather large organic garden we eat a lot of fresh vegetables and salads daily. This recipe is one that I have thrown together that everyone loves. Hope you enjoy this recipe too.

Flour Flower Mesh Cup - finished decorated cup

Flour Flower Mesh CupI wanted to spruce up my plain looking mesh cup so I dipped some foliage from my garden in a flour/water paste to preserve their shape, let them dry, then did a bit of painting and gluing to put this all together. I'm so happy with it, it's pretty enough to go on my rather girly makeup table.

Cleaning A Hand Held Can Opener - black handled can opener

Cleaning A Hand Held Can OpenerI've always used a hand held can opener. I can always put it away after using and cleaning. I think under the cabinet mounted openers are unsightly. I'm funny that way.

Refinishing Teak Outdoor FurnitureI had an old set of teak patio furniture that I had neglected to maintain over the years. So needless to say, they were getting pretty dry and ugly.

Craftsman Lawn Mower Won't Start?While cutting our grass, I accidentally put my Craftsman mower (17.5 hp Briggs engine) in reverse. The mower stopped and will not start. The engine turns over 1 time very slowly and then stops. The belts are disengaged, battery is charged, and solenoid is working I guess because the starter gets power to turn.
