my bad

How was I supposed to know the fabric I used for the Jawa costumes was 100% polyester? Was I supposed to know you can't dye polyester fiber, because it's not fiber but plastic?

I'm making Jawa costumes for both Jack and Em. I constructed the costumes, checked them for fit, and left them in a Rit Dark Brown dye bath overnight, from which they emerged the same off-salmon color they'd been when they went in.

I guess the boys will have to go trick-or-treating as Mary Kay Jawas busting their asses to earn their Pussy Pink Sandcrawler.

We hit Shop for a Cause first, where the boys found nothing and subsequently sulked.

Next we pulled into the Humane Society Thrift Store, which I haven't visited in a long time. Historically I haven't found anything there.

Today we hit the treasure jackpot.

A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.

Of course E had them ordered in a matter of moments.

Finally we escaped the store with a trove of treasures (more than I've found in one place in …

You cook the crust first, at 425 or 450. I used a bag of Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower riced in the Cuisinart with a bag of Trader Joe's shredded mozzarella and as many eggs as needed to hold it together. Herbed it with some dried basil, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

Topped with a pound of browned hot Italian sausage and some shredded parmesan.

Bake til browned.

Scarfed it down, me and my hunny.
