Is this the pol board?

Well of course you fricking dolt. It is a turn of phrase, not meant to be taken literally. No one with the right # of chromosomes says that about anything that isn't consumable & meant to be ingested.

FYI, just so we are clear: No person has ever been so hungry that they ate an entire horse in one sitting. People also have wayyyy better memories than any elephant, generally speaking.

I try and cook 5-6 times a week. Also trying to be more health conscious. Work in more vegetables.

It’s hard because salt butter and carbs are what make things taste good.

It applies to food as well. Some of the things that are common in the American diet injure you every single time you ingest them. What is the purpose of this "turn of phrase" if not to convey the idea that eating any food is ok if you don't do it too much?

Lady Dinosaur and I split duties cooking a home made dinner 4-5x per week. Usually made from scratch, but maybe once a week we'll make something quick that is pre-prepped or frozen. Trader Joes Orange Chicken is a go to, just heat it up in the oven/on the stovetop and cook some white rice and broccoli.

We go out or get delivery 2-3x per week, usually on the weekends.

Why? Nothing wrong with eating rice.

Do you cook meals at home?


A quick and easy meal that I saw on The Pioneer Woman is Thai Beef. I use to make it pretty often, but it is extremely good and somewhat (maybe a little?) healthy and different flavors than I usually eat.



quote:

Ingredients

1 package pad Thai rice noodles or linguine

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

3 tablespoons sherry

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1 teaspoon red chili paste or a few dashes red chili oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 lime, halved

1 pound flank steak, sliced very thin against the grain

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 medium yellow onion, sliced

1 red bell pepper, cored and sliced into rings

1 tablespoon diced fresh jalapeno or 1 teaspoon diced hot pepper

Fresh basil leaves, for garnish

Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish


quote:

Directions
1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions.

2. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch, brown sugar, ginger, chili paste, garlic and the juice of half the lime. Pour a third of the marinade into a bowl with the sliced beef and toss to coat. Reserve the rest of the marinade for later.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high to high heat. When it is very hot, throw in the onions and cook for a minute or so. Add the bell peppers and jalapenos. Cook for a minute, tossing until the peppers have brown/black bits but are still firm. Remove the vegetables to a plate.

4. Into the hot skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the meat mixture, evenly distributing it over the surface of the skillet. Allow to sit for 45 seconds, then turn with tongs. Cook for another 30 seconds, then add the onions and peppers back into the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Pour in the remaining marinade and stir. Allow to simmer on low for a few minutes; the sauce will slowly thicken. Turn off the heat.

5. Drain the noodles, then add half of them to the stir-fry. Toss and add more noodles as desired. Stir in some very hot water if needed to thin the sauce.

6. Top with basil and cilantro leaves and serve immediately with a squeeze of the remaining lime half.

re: Do you cook meals at home?
Just have one teen left at home. Wife and I both work but I get home earlier and cooking is relaxing for me, so I do most of the cooking. We cook at home about 5 nights a week (mostly grilling), eat out once a week or so and get takeout once a week. Sometimes we'll eat a pre-prepared meal like red beans or gumbo, but usually we cook from scratch that night.

For the most part, my (now) wife and I eat separate for breakfast and lunch. I cook breakfast every day and make lunch, too, but that's a bit less of a "complex." We cook dinner together and, typically, go out to eat on Friday night and Saturday.

re: Do you cook meals at home?
I cook from scratch about twice a week.

The other days we'll have leftovers, sandwiches, cheese/meat boards, frozen/boxed dinners, etc.

We go out probably once a week. Occasionally we'll get take-out/delivery. Fast food sparingly but it has it's place, too.

I like to cook but sometimes I just don't FEEL like it, you know?

There is a balance for sure, and I think we've done a pretty good job of finding it.

re: Do you cook meals at home?
During the week, usually all 3 meals a day are at home.. cooking or leftovers from cooking a previous night.. (b'fast and lunch usually just yogurt/sandwich)

Friday night and the weekend is usually eating out/ordering in... Sunday night is usually cooking at home..

Home cooked meals most of the time, real food, but not every night because some nights we have leftovers.

re: Do you cook meals at home?
Cook at home Monday-Thursday. Mostly "from scratch", but certainly nothing very complex. Tonight I'm doing meat sauce in roasted eggplant, for example.

Weekends can go either direction depending on whether we are both off of work and depending on what plans we have. With no kids and most of our friends being single, weekends are filled with plans more often than not. If they're not, we plan something involved and interesting to cook.

We are pretty much 95% cooking at home or sitting down somewhere. Not really into takeout for whatever reason. A handful of times a year will do takeout Wahada or takeout Red Zep, but otherwise its cooked at home or sitting down somewhere.

I'm envious of those of you who can eat grilled and smoked food so often. I love it the first time (and smoked pork butt I'll do another couple times), but I get sick of the grilled taste easily.

Mingo has fallen to the point where he’s now trolling the food board about how their diets aren’t clean enough

You hate to see it
