!crock pot edition!
College fag here,
I posted a month ago about how I was challenged to only spend 100 dollars a month on food, and I have been trying to eat healthier and cleaner through the process. Canned vegetables and beans are much easier to handle and taste better than frozen things, eggs are a must and prepackaged soups might be a little too expensive for what nutritional value and how filling they are. I bought a crock pot to help make food while I'm doing homework. I'm going to try to incorporate more meats into my diet, and hopefully the crock pot will help with that as well in terms of preparation styles.
Any easy crock pot recipes that you guys use? Maybe something that is cheap going in but can last me a week?
Not a challenge. My roommates and I spend less than 40 a week a piece on groceries, that includes soda, beer, and all of my cheeses. And we're in New York, so you can't say it's regional.
cheap crock pot recipe? get your pen and paper
rice, lentils, pinto. good eating is pretty easy
also, lol at asking for crock pot recipes, but talking about using canned beans. get dry beans. almost literally what a crock pot is for. beans and meats
It's actually pretty easy to stay under 100. I used to bang a welfare mom that did it easily. The trick is that you clip coupons, rely on cheap staple ingredients, and minimize meat use. Meat is used more as a flavoring, so cheap high fat ingredients like ham hocks and bacon ends are used primarily. Beans, Rice, Flour, and powdered milk are important ingredients. She always had a sourdough starter to save on yeast packets, and every meal included fresh bread to help fill people up.

What would you order from this Sandwich Shop menu?
"Low and slow"
That's the key to smoking good food
OP is a faggot that doesn't know how to cook. Some food needs to be braised for a long period of time or smoked for a long period of time. Some food needs to be seared off in a screaming hot pan.
I put sugar in my marinara sauce today and I liked it
that is because you're balancing the saltiness and acidity of the other ingredients with sweetness, which enhances the flavour. Mind you, you can skip adding sugar and just use Ketchup - yes, ketchup. It's fairly high in sugar so a small amount can be used in place of.
Some (diced) canned tomatos, some (white) wine, a little bit of tomato paste, some ketchup, herbs n spices...
I put some chicken breast in a crock-pot the other night for about 5 hours.
I ended up not eating any of it so i put it in some tupperware and shoved in in the fridge.
is it safe to eat? It's been in there for 3 days.
I tried to fry rice in oil and it went everywhere, some of them jumped out too. I suppose there was too much water on the rice? How do I fry rice without explosions?
I did that the first time too. It was great, kitchen looked like a warzone.
Any condensation on the rice will do it, so if you're storing leftover rice put some kitchen paper in there to absorb the moisture.
Of course, there'll always be a little, and if your oil is too hot then even a little moisture will cause the explosions.
What is /ck/'s favorite Corning Ware pattern?
Also, the Spice o' Life pattern in your pic looks a lot better than the one on the website.
>Raw vegan oatmeal
>10 drops stevia
It's that time again folks! Did you get your sweet potato in the mail yet? How are you cooking your sweet potato on this holiday? I'm probably just going to bake mine and throw a little salt and pepper on it for dinner but for breakfast I had sweet potato pancakes and for lunch I made a sweet potato casserole. I'm thinking I'll make a small sweet potato souffle for dessert.
What's everyone's favorite sweet potato recipe?
>there are people who eat "chili" in a style other than Texan
goddamn plebs if you ask me. pic related is the only true way to have proper chili
The Eternal Debate
Worth the wait or overhyped? Also what is this special sauce everyone is on about?
What fast food restaurant serves the best burgers in the world?
>Sandwich is exactly the same, but now it's on a brioche bun
This meme needs to die.
Wendy's is doing this shit now.
I got a burger from the fucking drive through, open it up, and I find they replaced the regular bun with fucking brioche. This is getting out of hand.

Whats up /ck/. My bf doesn't like the flavor of alcohol, and I'm a big fan of cocktails. I'm looking for a drink that's yummy enough that he can enjoy it. Most of my preferred recipes are pretty boozy, so I'm on the search for something new. Instead of burning hundreds of dollars on ingredients he won't touch, I'm looking for suggestions. What is a good introduction drink, for someone who doesn't like the flavor of alcohol?
