The "Scotty Potty" - in honor of our friend.
Go to your local hardware store and pick out your favorite toilet seat. For added comfort you could pick the padded version. :) To reduce the number of purchases, cut the existing white tabs from the bottom of the seat. You can see in the picture were I made my cuts. Keep the screws and white plastic tabs for later use. The top of the seat can be tossed (or decorated if you enjoy toilet seat decorations). If you don't want to cut the white plastic tabs, then you will need to find shorter screws to attach the seat to the chair frame. The last thing you want is to be poked in the bottom when you use this contraption.
I hope you enjoyed this funny tutorial from my sweet husband, Mr. Crafty Camper!!! We took this contraption to Girls Camp with us and it was a huge hit!!! The girls thought it was so funny but after they used it they loved it (especially the padded back)!!! I think we are going to have to make another one for camp next year.
Also check out the "Bathroom Box" post, it is the perfect companion to the "Scotty Potty"
Chinese Chicken Salad
1/3 pound maifun rice noodles
2 chicken breasts
1 head lettuce (shredded)
3 green onions (sliced at an angle)
1 cup celery (thinly sliced)
1 small cucumber (seeded and thinly sliced)
3 TBL spoon toasted sesame seeds
3 TBL spoon toasted almonds (slivered)
6 TBL spoons sugar
7 TBL spoons rice vinegar
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup oil
Break apart rice noodles and deep fry a small amount at a time in hot oil. Noodles will fry within seconds and will be white and crisp when done. Drain and set aside.
Mix all of the dressing ingredients in a bottle, shake well and set aside.
Cook chicken breasts. They can be steamed, boiled or roasted which ever you prefer. Cool, shred, and then add about 1to 2 TBL spoons of the dressing mix to the chicken and set aside.
Toast almonds and sesame seeds. (Be careful, they will brown quickly)
Cut up all the veggies and place in a large bowl. Refrigerate all the veggies, dressing and the chicken till cold. Just before serving, lightly mix fried rice noodles, veggies, chicken, toasted sesame seeds, and toasted almonds. Pour dressing over salad and mix again.

I cut the ribbon into 30" pieces and burned the edges so they wouldn't fray.
