I do most of the cooking for me and my partner because I like to. I need some more variety tho and was hoping for some inspiration, I know it’s a simple question but I’d love to get more ideas.
We decided we’re sick of pasta, I love pasta but we’ve been eating a LOT of it lately because it’s cheap and so good. Dishes I’ve been making a lot lately: cheesy rice with broccoli and chicken, PASTA (spaghetti, pesto, ravioli, lasagna, etc), ground beef in general (I have made hamburger helper, chili, and tacos a lot lol)...and we are feeling burnt out on these things.
We aren’t picky eaters and we like rice, potatoes, all veggies, chicken, shrimp, any other kind of beef, anything really. Asian style noodles would be okay I’m just done with Italian. Just looking for some new ideas :)
Edit: just wanted to say a collective TYSM to everybody posting recipes! Didn’t expect such an amazing response, you guys are super creative and I appreciate this community 💕 I’m reading all and taking notes lol.
Trust me I’m confused as heck to what went on but me (22F) and my roommate Becca (23F) had a major argument.
Becca got a piercing that got infected/irritated and after going to the doctor was told to clean it with a saline solution. All well and good right? Saline is just salt and boiled water? Cool.
But Becca wanted to save money after the doctors and not make up the saline and ‘waste water’ so she’s been using her leftover pasta water to clean her piercing??? Because that’s basically salt and water???
As soon as I found this out I told her that that’s disgusting and probably why her piercing is still infected but instead she called me out for judging her for ‘being thrifty’ and that not everyone’s ‘made of money’. She’s refusing to speak to me until I apologise for ‘implying she’s poor’ but I’m fed up of hearing about her sore nipple if she’s just going to slather it with pasta water.
I just want to know if I’m the asshole and overreacting for refusing to apologise. I’m not a piercer so maybe this is actually common practice and I’m dumb??
Quick Edit for info!
The piercing was not done by a professional, her friend did it for her a few weeks ago.
I’ve given her pasta Recipe in a comment below and from the reactions i think I’m morally obligated to tell you guys please just don’t do this?? (It goes pasta,salt and then water)
And about the money for the doctor visit, she asked her grandma to cover it? I don’t know much else about her financials apart from her paying her rent and half the bills?
Also please don’t give me awards for asking about my roommates nipple: please save your cash for something else (like saline?)
The resulting burns severely diminish the enjoyment of the meal you’ve just spent ages cooking.
He also said they look like nipples. Ever since, I have half a box remaining that I’ve avoided making because I can’t “unsee” the condoms and nipples.
What pasta dishes do you use orecchiette in? I want to revisit that box and use it in a spectacular way that distracts my husband from recognizing them.

“He is definitely a little out there. My friend manages a Benihana and said that they had to ask Edwards to stop coming in. Apparently he didn't understand how the restaurant worked and would casually bring in his own food to heat up on the teppan tables. The last straw was when he sat at a table hosting a large birthday party and spilled his entire container of gumbo all over the stovetop.”
Last night during the Wolves vs Jazz game, a Wolves announcer said that he had asked Edwards about it, and Edwards said the pasta is partially true. He said that he had brought in food, like sauces, from other restaurants to Benihana, but he hadn’t ever been kicked out. What are the odds u/YaBoiBeefCat is omniscient?
Alright, I get it. All pasta aren't noodles, and all noodles aren't pasta, but some pasta are (like spaghetti or fettuccine). It resembles and feels like a noodle in the mouth, that's why I grouped it together lol.
If you think making your own pasta at home sounds boujee and fun, it's fucking not, it's messy, laborious, tedious and ultimately underwhelming. You know some things have been industrialised for a reason? Like how we don't plow fields with shire horses anymore? TLDR: take it from me and find a different lockdown fad.
