LPT: Struggling to come up with a variety of home cooked meals? Dont use ingredients as your leader, make a list of your favorite cultural cuisines IE Italian, Mexican, American then from there write down your favorite dishes associated with those cuisines or dishes you'd like to try

For example

Italian: Spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, pesto, gnocchi

Mexican: Burritos, tacos, enchiladas, tostadas

American: Ribs, burgers, hot dogs

Then if you google that cuisine you might find dishes you've never heard of but sound great to add to your list.

Nutgate, broken down in a few pieces...it was just about principles!

Yes, you read right its about nutgate (😱again) and its totally unnecessary outcome!

We all know what happened there but if anyone don't, here a very short introduction:

CiW got a list with approved food for the girls which had cost her a few hundred dollars but she dared to have something else in her house too which was not approved by SW. (the way this sounds.. Not approved by...) An ice cream which didn't even had nuts as ingredients but was manufactured in a factory where nuts were processed. The awful situation was kick started because another grandchild from CiW took the ice cream by herself, it was not even CiW who gave it to the girl, so the tragedy or life threatening situation began!

For CIW it was no big deal, because Cece didn't ate it, CiW statement she has to learn, which is good on one hand but on the other hand its the moms job to teach pushed SW over the edge because it was no bowing down nor an apology but a dry advice from her MIL! SW took it as affront and dis

I’m half Japanese and I was always scared of never being enough to belong anywhere

Hey everyone! First off, I wasn’t sure how to tag this. I’m super sorry if Vent wasn’t right!

So as the title says, I’m half Japanese, half Caucasian. My whole life I’ve lived being seen as Asian by all my white friends, and usually white by all my Asian ones.

My family all has different experiences with racism. My brother never had dealt with any - genetics are wild, and I ended up looking more Japanese than he did. Yet, I’ve had men creep on me for being Asian. I’ve had to call mall security after a guy told me I was beautiful and that he β€œloved Asian culture”, and tried to get me to follow him home by force. I can’t go in an Uber without being asked where I’m from, and they’re never satisfied when I say I was born in Canada. I used to get sung songs at me in elementary about my eye shape. The list goes on and on, and it never stops.

I dated this one girl who was Caucasian a bit back, and during this one fight we had (which was close to when we broke up), she snapped and said I’

Sushi - Fudo - platter a ( I guess?) For 189 you get their signature sushis and 2 liter iced tea

Pizza - It's all pretty meh , my bro makes the best pizza imo (not over exaggerating)

Waffles - Amazing waffles ( it's the name πŸ˜‚) from burger boutique

Burgers - marcheese ( for now). Recently, this place has been my go to for burger. It's extremely cheap if you order the platter. Don't ask where cuz I ordered from foodak πŸ˜‚. Their fries is really bad tho. Brisket is also really good but a bit expensive

Veg food - kailash parbhat ( their method Bathura ( I think?) Is pretty amazing, just order their Bathura platter and you'll know it. Even their gulab jamun with rabadi

Thali - Maharaja darbar

Best experience - snoul - it's a michelin star restaurant so you can guess it was pretty amazing. But very expensive. The 4 of us spent around 600 and was still hungry. Everything was cooked perfectly. Ambience was amazing. Just go for the experience honestly. Rod grod is a 5/5 . Braised beef

How is there no Schnitzel avalible in game?

After looking through the food list twice on Wikia, I realized that one of the most iconic Austrian/German dishes, the Weiner Schnitzel, is not part of the Mondstadt food recipes. This is strange since Mondstadt, the region based on Germanic countries, has foods of Hungarian (goulash), Italian (pizza and spaghetti), French (ratatouille), and US (pancakes) origins while the Schnitzels are missing. If its to be implemented, the recipe could be meat+flour+egg+potato and make it a 2/3-star recipe as an alternative to Sweet Madame/Hash Brown. And while we are at it, JΓ€gerschnitzel could also be added as a one star higher alternative with mushrooms added in.

MHY please, for the love of Paimon and Schnitzel. Add the Schnitzel in and complete the Austrian/German food collection.

I’ve been somewhat active in this sub, but made this throwaway so I could talk with more details and a greater sense of privacy. The thread about what we like to see from diarists mentioned wanting a greater range of careers, so I finally signed up to post, but am a little bit nervous. I’m a speech-language pathologist in a large, urban district. I work with three schools, with students aged 3-18. Most of my students have developmental delays, Autism, or a learning disability. I work with students on developing communication skills, producing speech sounds, language skills like comprehension and storytelling, and some students who stutter. I evaluate and treat communication disorders that prevent students from participating in school. Usually, I’m moving around the school building and district throughout the week, but my district is fully remote until January, when we will allegedly switch to a hybrid model.

I tried, ranked, and reviewed every flexible dining meal on my way to San Francisco

While taking the California Zephyr from Chicago to Emeryville, a friend and I tried everything* on the Amtrak flexible dining menu. Though clearly inferior to the old traditional dining menu, we’ve ranked every available dish and written a review.

Ranked from favorite to least favorite:

1. Red wine braised beef

β€œWith pearl onions, carrots and mushrooms served with polenta and haricot vert. Served with a side salad and a specialty dessert.”

The red wine braised beef is undoubtedly the best option on the flexible dining menu for several reasons.

First, it’s the only beef option, with beef seeming to fair significantly better during the reheating process than chicken or shrimp dishes. The result is surprisingly tender and flavorful meat paired with a really tasty sauce.

Second, the vegetables paired with the beef al

My personal experiences with benefits of extended fasting

I just completed my first 12 day fast. This one had a profound impact on me and I just wanted to share it with anyone who might find it beneficial for themself. Whilst I did lose weight during this fast, I wanted to talk about some of the other benefits and changes I noticed.

In the past I have fasted many times. I have been doing it since 2014 on and off. I've done 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 day fasts. I wanted to do something longer this time. In the past, I've struggled with food cravings and dizzyness, the first problem being tough to solve and the latter being resolved with proper electrolyte consumption.

In 2020, I let myself get out of control and got way too heavy. I decided to fast just after Christmas.

This was my first time fasting beyond a week. From the 8th day onwards, all my food cravings completely disappeared, I had no desire for food atall, I would help my GF with cooking delicious foods and I never once felt hungry during the process. It was quite amazing and actually made

Geelong chicken schnitzel the 12th most-ordered food in the world for Deliveroo

"A humble chicken schnitty served up by a Geelong restaurant was the 12th most-ordered dish in the world this year for online food delivery service Deliveroo.

The city’s most popular dish was the chicken schnitzel from Schnitz Geelong, which was the second most-ordered dish in Australia for the delivery company, and ranked 12th in the world.

Last year’s most-ordered dish in the country, the Tommy the Chook chicken burger from Boss Burger Geelong, came in at number four in Australia this year and number 50 across the globe.

The chair of gluttony

Coming from an Italian family, food was always a priority in my life. With this family being poor, we rarely had the chance to actually indulge ourselves in one of the biggest pleasures in life, and our meals were filled with cheap wine and cheap pasta.

At least whatever my parents put on our table wasn’t bland and tasteless as it happened to most poor people. Still, I hated my stupid little life and yearned for change.

Being one of the oldest of too many kids, I was out of my family’s house by 18, working two shifts at a crappy diner to support myself. Except for the silence, living alone was not the paradise I expected, and anxiety and depression started seeping through my brain.

It had been one miserable year since I started living alone, and I barely had any furniture to fill my small and empty kitchenette. Where I live, it’s uncommon (and expensive) to have the houses come furnished when you rent them.

After I complained about it for the fifth time with my co-worker and only f

I'm deeply unhappy. I shouldn't be cos I have a great family, I'm healthy, middle class, my grades are good. But I have no friends and I can't find a job with lockdown so stuck inside for 10 months now. I was enjoying sophomore year, I was friends with my roomates and then March 2020 happened and my college has been online since, so I moved back home.

Am I a picky eater, or do my friends have bad taste?

My friends tend to classify me as a "picky eater" and I couldn't disagree more. They come to this conclusion because I generally don't like to eat at chain restaurants. Places like TGI Fridays, Red Lobster, Applebees and The Cheesecake Factory to me just have very bland food, frozen food, or have food on their menu that I could just cook at home for way cheaper and it will taste infinitely better. If I do find myself at one of these places, I will order something that's hard to screw up like boneless wings or a burger. Outside of this I find myself to be an very adventurous eater. I will try anything at least once.

I also refuse to eat at chain sub/sandwich places like Subway and Jersey Mike's. I live in New Jersey, where italian delis are on every other street. If I want a sandwich, I will go to one of the delis where I will get a sandwich that actually has meat on it instead of going to Subway where I'm going to get 90% bread and lettuce.

Week 51 Introduction Thread: Jewish

This week's intro brought to us by a fellow challenge participant (Thanks!):

Defining Jewish food is a task so large it's almost impossible. Jews are an ethno-religious group originating in the Levant, who have spread worldwide over the last several centuries. The main branches of the diasporic tree are Ashkenazim (those who settled in Europe), Sephardim (those who settled on the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa), and Mizrahim (those who stayed in the Middle East and Central Asia). Many more branches shoot off of these extending to places such as North and South America, India, Ethiopia, China, Korea, Japan, and more. In each of these places Jews have meshed their own culinary traditions with those of the surrounding culture, sometimes leading to great disputes over if something can actually be considered a Jewish food.

She happened to share a video with me by the YouTube channel Pasta Grammar and she seemed overjoyed learning a Northern and Southern recipe, I was intrigued by their other videos which she hasn't seen yet and they talk about how there is very little correct with the American interpretation of Italian cuisine with examples including Spaghetti and Meatballs being a big no-no, Carbonara being prohibited with egg-based noodles as it is too heavy (too much egg), there is too much garlic in a lot of American interpretations of Italian cuisine and way more than I couldn't begin to properly wr

Homemade Lasagna with Bolognese

Lasagna is a classic dish that can tell you a lot about a cook. There are dozens of ways to make the Italian classic... from utilizing different pasta types to adding all sorts of vegetables, or simply opting for a ragu of sorts and cheese. Making lasagna from scratch calls to a cooks ability to make a decent ragu (meat sauce), make homemade pasta sheets, and, if one opts for it, getting creative with the way the "casserole" is layered.

Below is my adaptation on a "classic" lasagna. If you want to have a whack at making it, I've left the technique and measurement list (in both weights and Imperial). I'll also go ahead and link to a video that I created for those of you who prefer something visual. I spent a lot of time on this, so I hope it helps you save some of your own! Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

RECIPE (Serves 8...)

For Lasagna…

[PRIMAL MEAL PLAN] for week of 24JAN2021

I feel like 2021 has already been quite a year, and it's only been 3 weeks. I hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy!

Butter chicken: If you don't have a pressure cooker, don't worry; this should be just fine in a slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 Basil Bisque: When buying Leeks, buy ones with lots of white and light green, as you don't eat the dark green parts. Also make sure you wash them really well after slicing them, because a lot of dirt gets in between the layers.

Spinach Shakshuka: I think I've put this on the list before...I know I've put in the regular one that is kind of spicy with lots of tomato, but this is a green one. It calls for a special kind of spinach, but as always, use what you have if you can't find whatever specialty ingredient it might call for.

Pork loin: if you don't eat pork, this is fine with chicken! I've been asked to try to include more "easy" and "fast" recipes. This does bake a while, but there aren't many things fast

COTOLET

Japanese Cutlet with an adorable name. I went to Japan last spring with my family, and this is probably the closest to authentic Japanese cutlet you will get. Kind of insane that it's tucked a way on Yonge street in Richmond hill.

The giant pieces of deep fried breaded Pork or Chicken cutlet come with various sauces. I've only gotten the brown sauce which isn't quite typical Bulldog Japanese cutlet sauce. Sort of a softer, very pleasant tasting gravy/curry hybrid. They also have a red sauce based tomato sauce which I haven't tried.

I'm at my wits end battling with the school over lunches.

The decision to fully go over to sack lunches for my kid wasn’t made lightly, but after last year, it really seemed like the only choice. My 8-year-old and 6-year-old daughters were constantly coming home starving because the school lunches were so lame. There was more than one occasion where they ran out of one element of the lunch, so instead of having Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes, one or the other just got a scoop of mashed potatoes and gravy. Yeah, that’s a nutritious meal. This happened a few times, plus the oldest pretty much only ever ate the main entrΓ©e because, in her words, the salad bar is disgusting - if you’re not the first in line, it’s a sloppy mess. And I really sympathized with her, it was exactly the same when I was in school. I wouldn’t put up with that shit as an adult, so why should we expect children? Anyway, I did the math and it turned out it would actually be cheaper preparing lunches at home anyway.

I’m 27, work as an Administrative Assistant in Albany, NY, and this week I spent some of my money on cider donuts

(Oops, I forgot the flair...)

Assets and Debt:

Retirement balance: $7000. I started my 401(k) when I was eligible at my current company and have put in 13% since.

Savings account balance: $14,000

Checking account balance: $11,000

Credit card balance: $1100 when the diary starts, which is my spending since my August statement date. September’s statement balance gets paid off during the diary.

Student loan balance: $12,900 from a degree in English because I intended to be a technical writer. Currently on pandemic forbearance.

Car loan: $1900 when the diary starts

Income Progression

I really have nothing to say for myself. I had a $10/hour internship in technical writing when I was in college, and since then I’ve had one $17/hour job anywhere near that field (I did layout and proofreading), and otherwise worked retail while trying to get a job. Finally I got my current job which was $19/hour when I started and now closer to $20/hour.

TWO PAYCHECK MONTH: $2100

Roman (and other cheese/oil based) pastas 101

Hey everyone, I originally wanted to make this guide for a friend of mine, but I figured some people on here also might be interested.

1: Why roman pastas? Aren't they a little too difficult for beginners?

Figured I'd address this right off the bat, because I see this pretty often where these types of pastas are talked about online like they're high forms of art that require years to master.

I really think that this is a big misconception, the reason these pastas seem difficult is because people don't really understand why/how these sauces become creamy. Once you have a handle on that, these sauces are super easy.

In addition, they're

  • Delicious
  • Pretty cheap
  • Quick to make
  • Have a short ingredient list, and most ingredients last a long time
  • Seem a lot more impressive than they really are

2: What's a roman pasta?

Here are the big 4

  • Cacio e pepe
  • Pasta alla Gricia
  • Amatriciana
  • Carbonara

Another two common ones that I like to lump under the same umbre

[Complete][62000][Horror/Psychological Thriller] Burn, Baby, Burn {Discussion}

Inside of each of us is more than just the personality that we share with the world, what if all of our evil thoughts and feelings became personified and took over, would we survive?

Living a life of debauchery, a young man is haunted by his past and tormented by the present with hallucinations of torture, rape and murder; he tries to retain his grip on reality as his life slowly unravels before him.

Burn, Baby, Burn is a high concept psychological horror/thriller with around 62000 words. Think Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde meets Kitchen Confidential with a side of Dexter and American Psycho. I would put my book alongside the likes of Stephen King and CJ Tudor. (Not that I have that much confidence to say that I am that good, but who knows.)

What are some easy, relatively healthy NON-SOUP recipe recommendations for someone with limited mobility (recovering from knee surgery)?

I'm recovering from major knee surgery. I'm very limited weight-bearing, stuck in one of these bad boys, and on crutches. I normally do most (75%ish?) of the cooking (my partner and I overall distribute chores/tasks, no equity issue), but obviously that's a bit flipped on its head now. My partner can cook fine, but we're both looking for relatively healthy meals that are easy to make, ideally that I can help with in some way (sitting down to chop, something like that), simply because I'm itching to have some sort of task to do. I'm bored!

I ask for "no soup" just because we have a handful of soup recipes that we like so those can be go-tos, but I also get bored of soup quite quickly. Unfortunately I don't do well with making a giant batch of something and eating it for a week straight because I get bored of the taste (we will freeze extras, though). From a "healthy" standpoint it doesn't need to be low-fa

[Thank You] Β‘Que plancha lo atrasada que estoy con mis agradecimientos! (Chilean stuff #5)

Plancha, which means iron... the one used to iron clothes (so many "irons"!), in chilean also means "embarrassing": "It's embarrasing how late I am with my thank you's!"... or something like that. Oh, there was a tongue twister with "plancha", (but not the chilean one): Pancha plancha con cuatro planchas.... Why 4? It makes no sense, should be "pocas" instead.... but saying "few" for ironing with irons is quite a lot. Lol.

I know many here have sent me more than the mentioned cards below, but I'm keeping it simple and going with the ones that come out first for this round. For the glitterbomb ones, that'll be my last update, thus marking my definitive return to the sub (and also definitive chaos on my room again, oh dear... I'm seeing the pandora box eeying me evily)

So, let me try pouring with my weak words my feeble attempts at muttering my gratitude to so many wonderful people.

What are some popular French internet pranks?

Dear France,

about a week ago, upon visiting this subreddit, I spent about half an hour, trying to figure out what exactly an Γ©driseur was. In the end, it inspired me to spend several evenings on various national subreddits, inquiring about the most common pranks that the Europeans like to pull online. I have received a vast amount of suggestions, which I invite you to expand in the comments, in case the Γ©driseur is not the only French meme that can be used as a prank. So far, the best entries on the list are that:

Germans claim to believe that the city of Bielefeld does not exist, although it is marked on map, and they accuse anyone who implies the city's existence of being involved in some mysterious conspiracy. Apparently, as it goes with many other nations, including Italians and the region of Molise, Romanians and the region of Salaj, Spaniards and the city of Murcia, Israelis and the town of Petah Tikvah, Turks and the city of Bilecik and Serbs and the city of Kragujevac.

Two Vegetarians in Verona

Food is an important component of any day, but especially so in Italy.

Light lunch

The tourist in Verona is overwhelmed by all the choices available. To decide where to go, plus what type of establishment, from the cheaper osterias to up market restorantes.

Popular spots to eat in Verona include Piazza Bra, Piazza Erbe and the somewhat more sedate Piazza Dei Signori. Vegetarians can't really go wrong here, best places to stop and maybe share a pizza or the ever popular Caprese salad.

Expect the bill to include service/bread, plus the inevitable bottle of water and maybe a salad and before you know it costs do creep up.

Veronese Cuisine

Veronese cuisine is rather meat favoured. Not only was veal and venison common, but so was octopus, horse and donkey meat.

For vegetarians, it is a good idea before ordering to clarify with your waitin

Somewhere Over the C3 = 0 Orbit [Part 1 of 2]

Roy Buchman sat bolt upright with his legs crossed at the ankle. A brass ashtray stand stood on the floor just at the full reach of his arm. Each time he went to knock the ash from his cigarette he uncrossed his feet and sat forward with them placed flat on the thick, pea green carpet. Each time he sat back he hitched his pants at the knees and crossed his ankles once more. The crease in his grey trousers was as sharp as any line on the wood panelling, he observed, and pulled at his cigarette with satisfaction.

At the desk in front of him was Donovan’s secretary. She wore a sleeveless, green dress dotted with a pink flower pattern. Her auburn bob was as smooth as a mushroom cap. Her eyes were down on the typewriter before her. Roy watched them flick back and forth like tiny birds flitting between telephone wires. He gauged how quickly they moved and found it agreeably human. The intercom on the desk buzzed and she flicked the receiver on, barely skipping a beat at the typewriter ke

Roasted Roots - 1st timer

I am new to all of this. Here's my first dish. Roasted roots my way:

Roasted sweet potato, radish, tofu, celery heart, fennel, parsnip

Recipe:

1 parsnip

1 sweet potato

4 large radish

1 celery heart

1 fennel bulb

1/2 brick tofu

2 t parsley

1 t Italian seasoning

1/2 t salt, to taste

1/8 t pepper, to taste

2 T veg broth

Cube it all up. Mix with seasoning. Roast covered 400 degrees, 35m, then uncovered 15m. (or until desired crispy outside, cooked inside)

I'm a newbie, and i didn't read the shopping list correctly from PBWF book I received as a present. So celery heart and fennel bulb were not in the orig recipe. I figured i'd try them anyway. Tasty! Except I was not a fan of the tough parts of fennel above the bulb. Otherwise, it was fun eating each root by itself and experiencing the flavors.

Since I'm new to this, I'm easing into

Housewife highlights/Daily shit talk - November 14th, 2020

NEW YORK

"An average week for Sonja Morgan, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, might begin with a nose job. They can do it now without any surgery at all: She says Ramtin Kassir just puts a little bit of filler to even out the bridge in profile. Her nose is a family heirloom β€” "The chicken face," she calls it. "It's a very signature family look." β€” charmingly but fiercely straight, in the manner of a young conservative politician. She looks nothing if not American.

Wednesday she's getting her eyebrows done with Victoria at the Julien Farel salon. She's been seeing Victoria for 30 years, back when she worked at the FrΓ©dΓ©ric Fekkai salon in Bergdorf Goodman. Then she followed her to Fekkai's salon at Henri Bendel. Remember Henri Bendel? But anyways she's at Julien Farel now, which is at the Regency. It is a gor

The chair of gluttony

Coming from an Italian family, food was always a priority in my life. With this family being poor, we rarely had the chance to actually indulge ourselves in one of the biggest pleasures in life, and our meals were filled with cheap wine and cheap pasta.

At least whatever my parents put on our table wasn’t bland and tasteless as it happened to most poor people. Still, I hated my stupid little life and yearned for change.

Being one of the oldest of too many kids, I was out of my family’s house by 18, working two shifts at a crappy diner to support myself. Except for the silence, living alone was not the paradise I expected, and anxiety and depression started seeping through my brain.

It had been one miserable year since I started living alone, and I barely had any furniture to fill my small and empty kitchenette. Where I live, it’s uncommon (and expensive) to have the houses come furnished when you rent them.

After I complained about it for the fifth time with my co-worker and only f

A Guide to Homemade Lasagna...

Lasagna is a classic dish that can tell you a lot about a cook. There are dozens of ways to make the Italian classic... from utilizing different pasta types to adding all sorts of vegetables, or simply opting for a ragu of sorts and cheese. Making lasagna from scratch calls to a cooks ability to make a decent ragu (meat sauce), make homemade pasta sheets, and, if one opts for it, getting creative with the way the "casserole" is layered.

Below is my adaptation on a "classic" lasagna. If you want to have a whack at making it, I've left the technique and measurement list (in both weights and Imperial). I'll also go ahead and link to a video that I created for those of you who prefer something visual. I spent a lot of time on this, so I hope it helps you save some of your own! Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

RECIPE (Serves 8...)

For Lasagna…

  • 5.5 cups (200g) Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 1.5 cups (80g) Low-Moisture, full-fat Mozzarella
  • Fresh Basil and/or Parsley TT -
