So just so you know my name is not Sasha and the menu item in the title is not exact but similar enough that you get the idea.
Last week I guess my Ex boyfriends family had new quarantine limited menus printed off. One of my friends stole one and showed me that the first item was “Sasha will give you an STD salad.” My first name is relatively unique and he is convinced I gave him an STD (I admit I cheated but I didn’t give him any STD).
I texted him and asked him what his fucking problem is and he acted like I he didn’t know what I was talking about. He then said “chill the fuck out, there’s 10 women in the country with your name, odds are one has an STD.” I demanded he change it. He said no.
I’m so humiliated because his parents restaurant is a local place for college people to meet after clubs and since my name is so unique, it’s already happened that people know he’s referring to me.
What can I do about this?

> “For whatever reason, I don’t have an answer, but I don’t think we started the game with a great competitive spirit,” Redick said. “We’ve had a couple games like that down here, for whatever reason.”
> The day started with such promise for the Pelicans. On Saturday, team owner Gayle Benson shipped crates of “New Orleans food” to the hotel for a feast. Red fish. Shrimp. Gumbo. Jambalaya. Salad. Cakes from Gambino’s bakery. Gentry told me the food was so good that Kings coach Luke Walton came over to be fed.
> “These cakes, it’s just ridiculous,” Gentry said. “Nothing that tastes that good can ever be good for you.”
I get it, salad is an easy go to heathy meal that we use. But I think it's a cheap and scared to try new things move at a restaurant. The restaurant we are going to is American so you know what kind of food there is.
I'm trying to go the restaurant with some people on Thursday. I tell her yesterday night. I give her time to look over the menu, prices, whatever. Then I ask if anything caught her mind. She says the Ricotta dumplings, caught her eye and sounded good. But she'll just go with the salad. When she said that, I made a pshhh noice followed by shaking my head and saying ridiculous.
When I asked if she was serious and told me yeah, that's when I said to not even come to the restaurant and just stay home. "I'm trying to be healthy about what I eat". I work out and try to eat healthy but I'm able to eat good throughput the week for I'm able to have a meal at a restaurant. Told her she do the same.
You can buy a salad at the grocery store for $5 instead of spending $16 on one.... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's hot here for the UK (35°c) and definitely salad weather.
Do you eat just a salad? What does it have in it? I guess it depends on where you live?
One of your inventions...chicken Caesar salad.. is really popular here. They even eat it in France and they're impossible to please when it comes to food.
We also have Waldorf salads here. They're lovely too. But more of a side like coleslaw.
Before COVID, I was a 5-day a week gym-goer and ate a really healthy vegetarian diet.
Yeah, the stress of this pandemic has worn me down. Flashback to me two days ago eating a sleeve of saltine crackers and a slice of cheese at noon and then falling asleep for two hours.
I've decided it's time to stop beating myself up for sucking at life right now and instead meet myself where I am. That means that it's just unrealistic for me to expect me to do my 2 hour salad meal prep on Sundays. Even more unrealistic for me to actually eat them on weekdays. So I went looking for simpler healthy options that wouldn't feel so overwhelming.
Enter Aldi's salad kits. They have I think four different options in the vegetable department. $2.49 for a bag that, for me anyway, can either be one serving (alone) or two servings (if you have something else - I ate some Greek yogurt with it). $2.49 for one or two meals really is a great value especially if it's something that you'll actually eat (again, catc... keep reading on reddit ➡
I should preface this by saying that I'm a classic metalhead. Tattoos, big boots, skull rings, denim vest with band patches, whole kit and caboodle.
I was in a store where the uniforms are green, so I've no idea how I was mistaken for one of them, considering I look like someone's rolled some mashed potato in a pile of Iron Maiden albums. When I was browsing the dog treats, I felt this wizarned old hand on my shoulder and I nearly shit myself. Weird old lady is there, yellow teeth and strange smell, and she asks where the salad bowls are.
Old lady: Salad! Bowls! Where are the salad bowls?
Me: Oh, uh, I don't work here.
Old lady: What?! But the uniform!
I shrugged and walked away, wondering in what shop a huge back patch of Vikings stabbing each other was the uniform, and how I could apply. I thought it was over, but this old lady then starts following me. She's always a few meters behind me every time I look around, and if I chat to my sister, she'll be making a loop... keep reading on reddit ➡
I used to not be fond of salads. I only ever bought premade salads from a grocery store once in the blue moon which were meh. I also liked it only with a lot of fat dressing, but then I would just prefer something else because a lot of dressing is already unhealthy, so why not eat something else unhealthy thats yummier (bad and weird mindset, i know). I just didn’t really love vegetables all together. Just saw it as something I had to eat to be healthy, but not because it was tasty.
Recently my friend made a salad for my barbecue. It looked like it had no dressing, so wasn’t really looking forward to it. I took a bite and I was blown away. It tasted so fresh and good, without having a dressing overpower everything. The vegetables were actually yummy.
I immediately asked her what kind of sauce she used. It was basically just olive oil and white wine vinegar. Such a basic combo that enhanced the salad incredibly. Since then I have been eating salad nonstop. I’m actually looking forwar... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have committed Tato Saladicide.
I watched my health bar go from ~20% to zero after consuming a second Tato Salad. I’m sure this isn’t supposed to happen. But it seems to be built into the max HP effect it has.

waiter: of course
me: it didn’t say it had nuts
her: I'm allergic, so I tell them to be safe
me: that makes sense

Now i am in the bath eating dry cereal like god intended.
I was working at a local overpriced soup and salad chain in the drivethru one morning and this woman ZOOMED through at 6:45am. Skipped the actual order screen, just drove RIGHT to pickup. Usually when people do this its because we messed up their order and they’re coming to yell at us, but we hadn’t had any orders yet that morning, so I opened the window and said, “hello ma’am what can I do for you?”
She looked at me as if I’d just told her to go f**k herself and goes, “WELL WHERE IS MY SALAD?”
I said, “oh, Im sorry ma’am, you didn’t order yet! But you can order here, what kind of salad would you like?”
She angrily responds, “WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHAT SALAD DO I WANT? I WANT A some generic crappy overpriced salad” “Alrighty ma’am no problem just give us a few minutes and we’ll have that out for ya. It’ll be $7.65.” Woman: “Oh HELL NO THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A FREE SALAD.” Me: “oh, do you have a free salad reward on your member card?” Woman: “I DONT KNOW WHAT A MEMBER CARD IS BUT I K
So my girlfriend and I have been eating a lot of salads recently, and we found a way to mealprep them by making what I've dubbed as "umami bombs". It's basically just a big bowl of your favorite hearty vegetables left to soak in your favorite dressing. Chop up onions, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc and let them soak up your favorite combination of olive oil, balsamic, soy sauce, vinegar, etc. Then when it's salad time you grab a handful of lettuce and a couple spoonfuls of your umami bomb and you're ready to go. Here are some recipes we've used recently.
Hearty vegetables + dressing/marinade + lettuce = instant salads
I love to cook, but I tend to always make a meat / carb heavy meal. Any tips for easy things to pick up that maybe don't require much work or mess in the kitchen?
edit: just want to thank all you awesome people for all the knowledge. Stay healthy :)
I even fried the croutons myself, from discount bread that was about to be thrown away at the store.
I think I honestly am getting better, I'm writing more now - switched back to working on my first book attempt, writing a radically different draft - I'm even painting and drawing my comic. I really do think things are starting to look up, or at least I'm on a good streak. And my evening meds allow me to sleep through the night, not being startled awake by nightmares at 4 am.
Like many folks on this sub, I’ve been trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet (and healthy food generally). I work long hours (though I’m working remotely at the moment) and my go-to lunch has been a cold-cut sandwich, eaten standing up at the kitchen counter, which is quick and filling but doesn’t give me the veggies I want. I absolutely love to cook, so I decided to focus my attention on some delicious salads.
I came up with the following salad recipes that are: vegetarian, legitimately delicious, have relatively cheap ingredients, and are actually filling (I hate when I eat a salad and am hungry an hour later). These are also relatively quick to make or can be prepped in advance. I wanted to share them in case they help others who have the same dilemma, and to hear other suggestions/ideas for more salads! :)
Hi everyone! Just thought I'd share this recipe that I'd forgotten about but recently remembered. It's vegetarian and can easily be adjusted for vegans. I used a lot of the ingredients in both the sandwich and the salad, so you don't have to buy too many things. It serves two people (although I had some leftover ingredients.)
Here's what you need:
-half of a red onion
-half of an apple (I like pink ladies personally)
-one mandarin orange
-sliced gouda cheese
-vinegar ( i like balsamic, but I bet apple cider vinegar would be good too)
-half of an avocado (optional, I just saw it there so I threw it in)
-almonds or walnuts (also optional)
SANDWICH: Put the sliced apples, a bit of red onion, a slice of gouda cheese, a few leaves of spinach, and a bit of honey mustard with a little salt and pepper on either a baguette or toasted sliced bread.
SALAD: Mix a couple handfuls of spinach, the remaining sliced red onion, a c... keep reading on reddit ➡
