Learning to cook…on March 6, 2012 at 12:01 am
Actually I’m not half bad in the kitchen… I make a decent toast… not really… bread’s already cooked why cook it twice?
HOLY CRAP GUYS! Thanks to everyone congratulating Lynn and I on our engagement. The love is very much felt. I wanted to thank everyone of you but the comment system kept telling me I was making duplicate comments. So if I didn’t thank you personally, please don’t be offended both Lynn and I read them all and are grateful for such loving and concerned fans! I’ll try and get to every comment over the next little while. Again thanks for the awesome love and support.
Is that a weasel with pineapples? Seems like a fine delicacy! I’m sure the next meal will be more successful! 🙂
We eat wall turkey, so I see nothing wrong with any of that dish.
Also, since you’re apparently an AC fan you may have seen this by now, but I’ll leave here anyway.
Baking Bread. Genius.
…I really hope that’s mashed potatoes that rodent is sitting on.
Heh. Anticipatory call. Awesome.
Sorry about being late to the game here, but congratulations on the engagement thing. Hope you two have a perfectly tolerable life together.
No, seriously. I wish you well.
Cooking as applied chemistry instead of an “art” is something I’m quite good at. Unfortunately, my gf and I have different tastes… Being able to paint a masterpiece does nothing for the man who prefers music, so to speak. But I can make things amazing to her, amazing to me, or pretty-good for both, so it always works out well.
Before I thought of it as chem (Thanks to House for this epiphany, and to QC for their “Baking is like Science for Hungry People, which I saw near the same time and don’t remember which was first), I was terrible at it.
I work much better in numbers and reactions than rough estimates and “feeling the spices”.
Cooking in our house is a combination of alchemy, science and art.
Alchemy (for the most part we just combine known foods together (that’s the important part), and see how it works). Science (see if we can replicate the result, if the initial outcome was good). Art (trying subtle differences to the original, which usually ends up back at the alchemy stage in any case).
So far, haven’t tried “Steamed Rat on a bed of (possibly) lettuce, served with mashed… substance, with a pineapple dressing”.
Is it a rat? Looks like it might be a chinchilla or something.
Not too sure (not that well up on my rodent species)…
I’d try it.
(this is a follow up to my last comment)
!!!! I hadn’t checked this website in a while, but awesome DUDE! I hope you two a very merry marriage(when it happens)!
Congrats dude! Seriously man it takes serious commitment and all that stuff to go to the engagement zone. You were good enough to get this far! I respect you all the more. Name it and I mail it to you (eventually if it’s under fifty AUD, sorry, still a teenager, moneys hard to come buy). But really, the main point is congrats. You’re a fucking legend. May you live long and prosper, indulging in your shared hate of nickelback.
Good on ya mate!
So, do I send my money for the new couple through the PayPal thing, or just send a check at your address?
Looks like Fried Swamp rat.. yum!
“Step up my game”
What you did there. I saw it.
You know that thing where someone says “You *HAVE* to try making this!” and then you try and then you fail miserably and you have *no* idea how you screwed up and so you vow to never try making that again? That’s why Good Eats is such a wonderful thing. Each episode will teach you everything you need to know about how to cook, for example, steak. (Youtube links near the bottom.) Go ahead and watch an episode; you’ll be hooked just like me and my kids were.
