Happy Weekend, MetaFilter! This week, because I am sick to death of literally everything I cook due to non-stop quarantine cooking, I want to know what you're cooking lately that's really good! [more inside]
We're eating breakfast for dinner. Egg in a basket, or as I grew up calling it "egg-bread". How about you? What are you eating tonight? Feel free to share recipes. Be kind & stay safe.
End of another long week, let's talk about something other than politics. Many of us are coming up on winter holiday celebrations. One of the more traditional drinks consumed here in N. America is eggnog. Let's talk nog. Love it? Hate it? Do you make it yourself? Do you have a special family recipe? Do you buy the store-bought kind? Is there a particular brand or flavor you prefer? Do you add alochol to yours? Do you have any amusing/horrific stories related to eggnog? Did you know that eggnog once sparked a military riot (known as the 'Grog Mutiny') at West Point! Feel free to talk about any other holiday drinks you consume around this time of year. Or what you're currently drinking in this moment. It's an open thread. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Cheers.
We're close to the end of the week, let's talk about something other than politics. Let's talk about garlic.
“Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime...Please, treat your garlic with respect...Avoid at all costs that vile spew you see rotting in oil in screwtop jars. Too lazy to peel fresh? You don't deserve to eat garlic.” ― Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary UnderbellyLove it? Hate it? Any garlic-related stories or adventures? Do you grow it at home yourself? Do you have any special recipes that are garlic-specific? Feel free to share them here with us. Is there a particular varietal that you seek out? Did you know that Les Blank made a documentary all about garlic - 'Garlic Is As Good As Ten Mothers (1980)'. Here is the trailer. Let's talk about all things related to garlic. Remember to be kind to yourself and others. Cheers.
End of another week, let's talk about something not related to politics. Let's chat about breakfast. What is your favorite type of breakfast food? Are you a fan of cereal? If so, what kind? Or maybe you're more into oatmeal. Are you an eggs, bacon/sausage, toast kind of person? Do you like maple syrup on your pancakes? Bagels? How about breakfast for dinner? Or maybe you do not conform to these types of predictable conventions and just eat whatever you want? What about pizza? Or steak? Or noodles? If you hate breakfast and generally skip it, feel free to talk about that too. Love it or hate it, let's talk about breakfast. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Cheers.
Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. What are you having for dinner? Feel free to share a recipe or photos. Are you eating out? Leftovers? Cooking something easy and fast? Or fancy and complicated? Or maybe you're changing it up and trying something new? What's for dinner, I want to know. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Cheers.
Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about fruit. What is your favorite fruit to eat? Do you cut it a certain way? Do you grill it? Do you chill it? Do you add anything to your fruit to make it taste better? Are there certain fruits you avoid or dislike? Let's get fruity. As always, be kind to yourself and to others.
Sometime within the last six or months or so (I think?) there was a post on Ask MetaFilter about eating or dieting or ways to lose weight or something to that effect. One of the commenters said something about how he or she says something like, "does this taste as good as it would feel" or something like that. It may have been marked as a Best Answer, which means it wasn't in an anonymous thread and I think it had a number of favorites. I can't find it now, but does anyone remember where that comment was? Anyone? Thanks!
