Annoyances with eating habits/food in general.
>People who eat all of one component of a dish before moving onto another component.
This is bad for two reasons. First, it means that you do not appreciate the combined flavours of the dish as intended. Secondly, it means that the person fails to appreciate that the best way to consume their least favourite component (i.e. a certain vegetable) is in small amounts in between mouthfuls of nicer components.
>Everyone knows this yes, but people who make no effort to not eat loudly/with their mouth open.
>People who eat a shared snack/food item very quickly, forcing you to eat too quickly or miss out on your share.
>Bad table manners in an adult. My Father is absolutely terrible. He eats SUPER quick, and then proceeds to do stupid shit with all the time he was to wait for others. This includes: Reaching across the table, grabbing some food with a fork/spoon, and putting it directly in his mouth (especially annoying when its a shared dessert where you may want more). Wiping up leftover sauce from his meal with his finger and (LOUDLY!) licking it off. Also prior/during eating: Serving himself some sauce from a jar and then taking a big spoonful at the end and putting it straight in his mouth. Eating loudly. To top this all off, he is incredibly impatient and will comically get agitated very quickly if he's sat down ready to eat and his wife is finishing something off in the kitchen, before racing through his food, causing him to wait several minutes for his wife.
The only thing I can commend him for is the rule of waiting for everyone to be served before starting to eat. Although this isn't entirely true as he can't help but sometimes pick at his meal and have a quick mouthful.
betcha ya been told how to eat tube steak and chocolate starfish before, ya nancy boy
New to /ck/ so sorry if I'm doing this wrong or if I'm on the wrong board
How do you cook fish to get the most nutrients out of it? Preferably in a budget friendly way, but I'll take what I can get. Trying to get fit and there's nothing on /fit/'s sticky about how to cook anything except vegetables.
Can't tell if sarcasm or serious, but I guess the question doesn't make a lot of sense. I'll go in depth a little
How do I cook fish in a way that isn't frying it, while keeping its nutritional value as high as I can?
p.s. sorry for the humongous image file, had no idea it was that big
How in the dick are you suppose to work this stuff? I'm leaving it out covered by a cloth for 30 minutes (bought chilled not frozen), but I is still very tough to handle and wants to turn back into a ball. I strongly doubt its my dough, buy it from a local pizza joint of good quality.
Just keep going, yeast dough isn't like pastry dough. You only get a tiny bit of extra area each time you work it with a roller ... that's why they do the spinning in the air thing.

So I just fucked up making bread, any experts care to weigh in?
It's too dense so I think I fucked up with the yeast, and this fucking electric oven has a heating element at the top only, so it's practically a glorified grill that burnt the top of the bread after ten mins of the half hour I was meant to leave it in for, so I flipped it upside down... disaster.
Sorry for going full Gordon Ramsey... the frustration is still strong. Any hints/tips would be appreciated, especially if anyone deals with an oven as crap.
I did when I saw what was happening, but I didn't even think. I just moved and I'm completely out of the habit of cooking (especially bread) so I just went about it like I ordinarily would.
Should the heating element being there not really be an issue then, or is it just going to kind of suck for baking do you think?
I can't even find regular, good quality mugs on Amazon. Look at this junk...
Anyone order any mugs off Amazon that you find particularly nice? I have a bunch of oblong and odd shaped cups that are just kind of stupid (arts and craft store, storm trooper, Boston terrier mug) and I'm looking for something a little more traditional but can't find anything really nice just with the search here.
I would recommend just looking around your local supermarkets / Good Will-esque shops. The shipping cost of mugs generally doesn't make it worth it online unless you find something you really like.
So I'm going to Five Guys for the first time ever. What should I get?
For Christmas I made red and green pasta with grated cheese "snow". It's sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and basil. It was pretty gross tbph. But I didn't want to waste it so I put it in a Tupperware and hoped someone else would eat it. No one did, so last night I tried it again and it was delicious. It just needed a couple days to set and let the flavors coalesce. Eating it cold helped it too.
What are some other foods that taste better days later? I'm curious about this phenomenon.
Yeah, I served it hot and it had garlic in in too, and the peppers tasted too sweet and didn't go with it. But last night everything came together better and the peppers were more mild and garlicy too. I'll make it again now, but in advance and eat it cold.
How is /ck/ planning to celebrate NYE?
So I've been around some states in america and some europe countries and I have to say that imo:
1) American burgers are worse than european. I expected something better. I thought mcdonalds in my country was just shitty but no, all mcdonalds are shit. The best burger I ate was in a local burger shop in Ireland.
2) KFC are shit in america. Yes there is a difference.
3) American pizza is a fatty mess full of grease.
Am I wrong? Do I have to go back to america again?
>ordering eggs cooked well done
>doesn't eat pizza crust
What other things do only little kids do?
My mom went and bought a family sized pack of fucking kale it's about to go bad . I don't know what to do with it.
It's only good in salads in small quantities and i've already made 2 batches of kale chips.
I'm making salmon with lemon dill sauce tonight how can I use this glorified green?
also post trend foods that trigger you ITT
Make soup. Search online for soup recipes using kale, tons of them.
>family sized pack of fucking kale it's about to go bad . I don't know what to do with it.
It cooks down. I think a giant bag of greens cooks down to like not even 2 cups.
Gumbo z'herbes is one idea. But what is this worth? $2? Stop stressing.
It's getting pretty wet and cold outdoors so I cooked up some Goulash on the wood burner.
You want a bowl, /ck/?
So I have been cooking with mushrooms a lot for a while. Do you have a good recipe?
I use them sauteed with pasta mostly.
Who here honestly drinks and uses skim milk and why?
If I actually do need skim milk for a recipe, due to its texture, I'll just mix a small amount of powdered milk into water. Certainly not paying for a jug of the shit.
I have a female friend who likes Skinny Russians (White Russian made with skim). I do this and she never notices the difference.
In my area, I could see the really poor people flocking to skim because it's like 50 cents cheaper per gallon than whole and 2%, probably because nobody wants it.
I tried it quite a while ago, for about two weeks, out of morbid curiosity. It wasn't worth it. It'll never be worth it.
