>Consider the decision last month by the agriculture department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service to allow poultry plants to process diseased chickens for human consumption.
>In July the FSIS approved a petition from the National Chicken Council requesting that slaughterhouses be allowed to process broilers infected with Avian Leukosis — a virus that causes chickens to develop cancerous lesions and tumors. Inspectors would no longer be required to examine the first 300 birds of each flock for signs of the disease, and processors would be able to cut off tumors and lesions and then process the rest of the bird. The approval has led to a proposed rule change that is now before the food safety administrator Paul Kiecker.
>Here’s what we know about Avian Leukosis: A small percentage of birds (less than 1%) are diagnosed with the virus each year, but it spreads quickly through flocks and tens of thousands of chickens are condemned annually due to exposure. While it’s unlikely... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me(28M) and my fiancée(27F) are an interracial couple, she is white and I am black, so it makes family get togethers.... let’s say interesting. Both of our families have said things that were inappropriate, but we both agree her family takes the cake for saying things unintentionally (sometimes fully intentionally in their case) offensive things.
We visited her hometown and to have dinner with her parents and sisters. While the women cooked, I was out having a some beers with the other men. We were shooting the shit, talking about normal stuff. Eventually someone brought up politics. My spidey sense went off and I looked in vain for literally any chance to change the subject. Of course her dad, mentions the protests and the riots. My fiancées BIL, Dan, just goes off about how awful rioters are, which I fully agree with, but then he gestured at me and said, “Luckily you’re not out there doing that, you’re one of the good ones”.

So I (16f: changed from 15f because i keep forgetting i’m 16 since my birthday recently) absolutely suck ass at cooking, and over the past few days i've wanted to get better at it, with the help of my mom. a few days ago we made pasta, and I asked my mom if she thought my dad would like it, and she said he doesn't like pasta. My dad doesn't seem to like alot of things, he's a heavy smoker and alot of stuff just doesn't taste good to him. I felt really bad since my dad works practically all day and has to come home to just scrambled eggs usually , so i went up to him that day and asked him what he DOES like. he listed things like potatoes and vegetables. so i made it my mission to make a meal that he likes. today, i was trying to decide what i would make, and remembered my mission, and decided on potato wedges with cooked vegetables and a homemade sauce. I made it pretty much only because i wanted him to eat it, and the entire time i was making it i couldn't sit still i was so excited t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (22F) recently started working as a private tutor for a wealthy family. The job pays very well and really improved my financial situation. I’m fortunate to have secured this role but it’s still the beginning stages and I’m not trying to fuck things up.
Last week the couple invited me to dinner and said that I could bring someone along. I told my BF about this and asked if he wanted to come with me. He said yes. I warned him that these people can be a bit snobby so I expect him to show good manners.
So the dinner happened and it started off well. I noticed my BF was nervous but didn’t think much of it. Then I noticed that he was drinking more than usual. (He rarely drinks). I kept giving him looks to hint that he should stop drinking. He was completely oblivious and behaving like a nervous wreck.
After a short while he got so drunk that he started talking absolute shit. He looked at me from across the table, pointed at me and asked if I was single. For some reason they actually... keep reading on reddit ➡
My father is not a nice person. He is not a good man. As he gets older, he gets worse and worse to be around. He is racist, misogynistic, homophobic, and a verbal/emotional abuser. Honestly, the reason that we put up with him is because he has money. Not that he’s rich and we want get his money, it’s that he has been the sole earner for the past 30 years and has kept my mom completely in the dark about financial matters. Without going into too much detail, we have been urging my mom to leave him for decades, even going so far as offering a spare room in our house for her to live in. However, for many complicated reasons, both serious and silly, she won’t leave. So we put up with his verbal and emotional abuse. For her sake, I guess?
Growing up, I unfortunately looked up to my dad. He was my dad, after all. I cringe when I think about the things I used to believe, both consciously and unconsciously, about the world. It is only recently, within the last 15 years or so, that I have been... keep reading on reddit ➡
I think it's silly, but I will humor him. Even though I cooked professionally for about 12 years and it hurts my soul a little bit. He is turning 32.
Edit 1: For the people offering tips on how to make it fancy/homemade, thank you, but he has specified he wants frozen premade out-of-the-box. So maybe I'll try those another time.
Edit 2: For people calling me pretentious/elitist. Meh. That's fine. But for people calling me a bad girlfriend, that it's sad he "isn't allowed" to eat his favorite foods, or saying I'm ridiculing him on the internet: you can shut right up. I posted this with his knowledge. We have been reading replies together. He is a grown man who is capable of purchasing and cooking what he wants when he wants. Sheesh!
Edit 3: Why is this silly? I just think it is. This is supposed to be a lighthearted convo about the silly things the people we love do.

We've been together for almost a year and I really like her. Personality-wise we have heaps in common but we do have different career paths - I work in business/marketing field and she's more into art/science.
Since January our company's been dealing with other company in hope of making a deal. I've been extremely stressed because with corona every new deal instantly becomes more important.
At the end of August we should have a final dinner and I really hope they will say yes.
I was with my colleagues and one of them said brining a girlfriend/wife could help and since my girlfriend is a looker, she could lend me a hand.
I know they find her attractive as they've met her once and made a few remarks about how lucky I was. My girlfriend however told me those remarks were creepy. (I personally consider them compliments but didn't argue with her.)
Anyway I suggested her she could join me and was met with a direct refusal. She told me she had not intent... keep reading on reddit ➡
It was my mum's birthday earlier in the week and because of COVID restrictions we had a small birthday dinner between my siblings and my boyfriend.
While my BF was driving to our house, my sister - while setting up the dinner table - brought up to my mum that that one of her friends had seen my BF's sister in a raunchy ad on a pornographic website (BF's sister posts OnlyFans content, which my BF already knew about). My family (including my mum) are very 'anti-sex work', so this revelation from my sister sparks a very heated discussion amongst my family.
Just for context, my mum had said before that if any of my siblings did 'OnlyFans' material she would disown them and kick them out of the house.
While they were talking about this, I gave my BF a head's up that my sister had brought this information to light with my mum, so he doesn't get blindsided by this. My BF then directly messages my sister about why she would bring this up just before her birthday dinner.

So for dinner last night I decided to make pizza. I (32F) and my husband (37M) have 3 kids (8F, 6M, 3F). My husband is pretty busy with work so for the past 4 years we agreed I would work part time and take care of the kids and do more housework.
Last night I decided to make pizza. I do the grocery shopping. I made the dough by myself, I cut up the vegetables for toppings by myself, I shredded the cheese by myself, I rolled out the dough into the pizza shape by myself. I laid out all the toppings and let my kids pick which ones they wanted on their pizza and their leftover pizza could be lunch. They wanted to put the toppings on themselves so I let them, and once they were done I had to respace things so they would cook evenly and were better spread out.
As we were eating, my kids are talking about how good the pizza is and thanking me for making dinner. My husband tells them they don't need to thank me because WE ALL MADE DINNER. I said "no, WE didnt. I made dinner, but I appreciate... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I just turned 16 and I have a two (nearly three) year old sister. Her dad isn't in our lives anymore. This means that my mom expects me to babysit whenever she has to work which I always do even though I am also doing online summer school classes. Yesterday morning (around 11 AM) my mom messaged me and told me that she was going to work a double shift and wouldn't be home until well after midnight. I was frustrated because this is happening more and more frequently, and I have homework to do but it can't be helped and I understand we need to extra money so I just said ok. A couple hours later I saw in my Facebook feed that my mom was tagged in a photo by a friend from the night before. It was of some sort of 'girl's social distance movie night' or some shit like that. I clicked on it and started going through the photos and saw this wasn't the first time. EVERY TIME SHE CLAIMED TO BE WORKING AND SAID I HAD TO BABYSIT SHE WAS GETTING TOGETHER AT A FRIENDS HOUSE KNOWING FULL WELL I NE... keep reading on reddit ➡

Ever since we got married my wife has been insistent that we eat dinner together every single night. The clock strikes 7 and she is forcing me to do the same routine every day. We've been married for a year now and it's getting to the point where I dread the hour but I love her so I do it with a smile.
I am extremely invested in my Blender (3D rendering) hobby and I begin working at 5PM as soon as I'm off work. By 7PM I am in a perfect flow state, lately I've been making a ton of progress on a model I've been working on for months now. Last week I was working on it and 7PM came. I kind of went off on her about how I was sick of doing the same routine every day and that she is incredibly unsupportive of my hobbies. It seems like she finally got the message, and for a week now I've been able to focus uninterrupted in the evenings and it has been wonderful if I'm being totally honest. But there's clearly still an elephant in the room and I don't know if I should make another big scene si... keep reading on reddit ➡
They picked pizza. Then I made tacos because they don't live in a swing state.
So this past weekend my husband and I went to see our in-laws after months of lockdown. It was just the four of us for dinner at their home.
Anyways I’m mixed race, and mom is Chinese. I was showing a picture of my mom’s side of the family having hot pot and saying that once the pandemic is over my aunt and uncle from Shanghai want to visit us and we would have really authentic hot pot at home.
Well as we start discussing what hot pot is my FIL chimes in with a “oh well you better make sure to keep Bottles (my dog) in your sight on hot pot night.” I was like what do you mean and he “joked” about how there’s no fresher meat around than my living dog and we all know how “those people” can’t resist eating dogs.
I’m in shock and argued back that no, no one in my family is going to eat my fucking elderly dog when they visit but both my MIL/FIL just laugh and says it’s a joke and my husband just rolls his eyes gives me a shrug but he laughs too.
This is where I may be TA. I was just su... keep reading on reddit ➡
This weekend the bars/pubs/clubs opened up. My husband was going to eat dinner with his colleagues after work, and asked if i wanted to meet him at the pub «Beers» (fake name) at 11 PM. I said «okay!». Its been a while since we had a date so i was excited.
Sooo i took a shower and got ready, i went to the pub and was there at 11 pm. I texted my husband asking him «where are you?» he told me «dinner isnt over untill 1130 pm.» they started eating at 7 pm. I said «okay! Well im here so i’ll see you in 30 minutes?»
He Didnt reply at all, he just read the message. I Didnt think much about it. Then the clock hits 1 am. I text my husband again «Hey, what happened?» no reply. 30 more minutes with waiting and he texts me «we are at pub ‘mimosa’» i asked him why he Didnt inform me so i could go there. He told me to keep waiting at pub ‘beers’.

This is my first Reddit post so sorry if some things are wonky.
Since the quarantine started, my daughter (15) has taken up cooking and baking. Our oven sucked so we got her a new one as an early birthday present (and that we just needed one). She's been baking nonstop and recently started making us dinner because my son and I are working hard to re-do our backyard (think building a shed and hardcore gardening).
Since she's inexperienced, my daughter started out with a really easy recipe that involved frozen vegetables. The dish was great, the carrots were a little underdone but I thought that just gave it a little extra crunch and didn't say anything. My son, however, has always made fun of his younger sister and comments on everything he sees her doing in the kitchen. While eating dinner, he said something along the lines of "some poor excuse for cooked vegetables" which made my daughter upset. She takes criticism to heart and this comment kinda crushed her pride.

Throwaway because privacy
A few years ago my mom got remarried. It was adorable. Step-Dad is a genuinely kind man who makes her laugh, and I'd ( 27F) literally never heard her laugh before. Seeing my mom bloom after divorcing my dad, fall in love, and get married was magical. She said she was happy to get married again to show my sister and me that good men do exist.
Step-Dad has a daughter. She's a year older than me and is moderate-to-high functioning autistic. I think for a moment he wanted us to be friends - we have similar views, similar habits, similar problems, but I'm not on the spectrum. The thing with my step-sister is she's obsessed with politics. We agree with most of her views, but she's very antagonizing about it.
Everything turns into a fight and she won't stop. How dare you do this, how dare you do that? This thing is the scum of the earth. Think Tumblr Nightmare Politics but turned up from ten to one hundred. We agree with her about a lot of things so you think... keep reading on reddit ➡

The most aggravating thing in the world is going to McDonalds at 10:30am in search of nugs, or when your craving a big mac, only for them to tell you they don’t serve lunch till 11. Mcdonald’s breakfast is either too sweet or tastes like shit. I would much rather be able to eat dinner in the morning than breakfast at night.
Made dinner but stepdAd refuses to eat it and says it’s not a real meal. AITA?
For dinner I made a stew (was originally called soup, but some people pointed out this sounds more like a stew) with 15 beans, ham, potatoes, tomatoes, and onions. The rest of my family loves the dinner I made, but my stepdad got home and threw a fit about it to my mom about how it’s not a real meal and he’s very mad because he expected a real dinner.
I think it was a real dinner though, it had proteins from the beans and meat and vegetables as well. My mom asked him that if she served him ham with a side of beans and potatoes then would it be a real meal and he said yes. I worked very hard on making dinner and I’m confused, he never makes dinner for us and the rare times he does we never complain even if we don’t like it.

For my birthday last year, I took out a group of about fifteen friends to a Moroccan restaurant. I was feeling generous and I like the tradition that some countries have that the birthday person pays for everyone's food. However, I am vegan and I do not like the idea of paying for and people eating meat and animal products at a celebration for me. I announced that I would be paying for everyone as long as they did not order meat (I decided that excluding animal products would be too difficult for many to figure out). The restaurant has several vegan options including falafel, veggie kabobs, pita, hummus, dolmas, etc. Everyone heard my request and generally enjoyed the meal.
I noticed that two people (sitting a bit further away from me, if it matters) ordered chicken or lamb when the food came. I was irritated by this, but decided not to say anything since the damage was done, as I felt. When dinner wrapped up, I paid for the food and everyone went their separate ways.
