DIY PROJECT:COFFEE CAN LANTERNS - Instead of setting them up with clamps and wood and stuff I have seen the same thing done where you just fill the can with water and freeze. Which means you then have a good sturdy surface to hammer the designs into.
Crock Pot Baked Potatoes -- what a great idea! Great for summertime, too, when you don't want to heat your oven! Just scrub, spray lightly the crockpot and potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Cook for 8 hours on low heat.
