I will never forget, unless I get alzheimer's, being a young kid like 7 or 8 years old and stopping by some really 90s era type pizza place in a small town. Before all this gourmet, organic and shit happened when a pizzeria had plain white walls and some plain metal big oven.
I asked for pineapple pizza and the guy heated up a pizza and whipped out an opened Dole™ pieapple can and placed some squares on it.
Got it to go and as we're walking outside my dad just slightly mentions "He just put canned pineapple on it, I could've done that".
I most certainly could of then and can now. I just didn't care about things like that when I was younger.
Canned pineapple, Dole™, is more watery and less crispy. They also are not as "juicy" and lack a firm crispy profile. They tend to be like a moistened jello block. A freshly cut pineapple is crispy and juicy. It's not watery but is loaded with juicy flavor and has a sort of crunch.
Hey guys. So I have 1.5 lbs of ground beef thawed and 1 lb of pork thawing now to use for dinner.
In my infinite drunk wisdom I took the beef out last night and now I don't know what to use it and the pork for. I'm sure last night I had a grand plan in mind but as you all know it's gone now.
So, anyone have suggestions for using ground beef and pork for a meal? And don't say meatloaf please, I made one last Wed I think and I don't want to cop out and do that again.
I'm in New England so I could go use my grill, it's not cold enough out yet (Not like that matters I shoveled to my grill last year through 3 ft of snow)
I was thinking maybe taco night? I could do some shrimp too. Throw the beef and pork in a pan and season and then do the same with the shrimp.
If I would do chili I would use my crockpot. It's just a lot easier and I love slow cooking. Thanks for the suggestion though.
BTW: I have a pretty good pantry, I have a good amount of spices and herbs, I have onions, jalapenos, potatoes, parsley, cilantro blah blah...
Recently I learned that MREs/rations/canned food are actually shit. Not in the nutritional sense (which I already knew), but in the "this shit has a terrible shelf life" sense.
I think the problem was buying into the canned goods meme, that we could store canned goods for 25 years and eat them in a shit hits the fan scenario. Apparently canned goods are really only good for 2-5 years these days.
The fuck am I supposed to store for longtime emergency rations? Dehydrated food? Freeze dried food? I'm lost and confused in a vortex of edibles.

>The fuck am I supposed to store for longtime emergency rations?
You're not. Unless you live in some shithole like Syria or Kenya you do not need emergency rations. Or a bunker. Or a stockpile of ammo. The biggest crisis you're likely to see is the price of beef keep going up.
store some, write the expiration date on package in big bold letters, and store in an orangement it's simple to understand when they will start to expire.
eat as things start to expire, and replace when you eat.
Guys I'm having some friends over tonight and I'm pretty much poor as f.
Thinking about serving noodle soup as an appetiser, some spaghetti-rice (my recipe) with a side dish of potatoes and some home baked bread.
It's decent but doesn't give that 'I'm poor' vibe. Please give suggestions because I'm not that good of a cook but I want to serve something delicious.
What's the point of stuffing if it's not inside a turkey gathering up all the delicious juices inside? Who came up with the idea of eating stuffing by itself? Is this another stupid vegan thing?
I dug sweet potatoes a while back so that I could make pie for turkey day. I need a recipe.
If you’re searching for the perfect turkey recipe for Thanksgiving, the fine folks behind the “Baked” series have you covered. All you need is a 12 pound turkey, butter, chicken stock, maple syrup, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and plenty of weed. http://aviationstreetwear.com/?p=5803
do u cut ur butter laterally or longitudinally?
What did you have for breakfast?
What is the best supermarket and why is it Aldi?
Aldi is fine but I'm more of a Lidl man myself.
>in b4 retards argue about "quality" without realising it's different in each country
To avoid any doubt, I'm talking about Lidl & Aldi in the UK; both have decent meat, cheese, produce and bread (in store bakeries, even)
What would be a good protein to serve with oven roasted sweet potatoes?
Seconding this - I eat roasted sweet potatoes, yams, and other roots all the time and I never really like anything I pair it with.
I think that if you want it to be more than just a side and truly pair with a dish, then you need to either mash it or add a sauce like this : http://www.moosewoodcooks.com/2011/10/navajo-stew/
Once that's done there is plenty that it could be paired with.
what's some exotic food you'd like to try but have to take big steps or just generally can't be arsed to get?
Living in the US there isn't really that many things that are difficult to find, aside from a decent baguette and pic related.
Is Wensleydale cheese really as good as they make it to be in Wallace and Gromit?
Dumb food related stuff you've done
>eating shin ramen
>stupidly use a plastic spoon
>plastic leeches into the broth so it tastes like toxic sludge
>can't eat shin ramen any more without gagging
