>white woman in front of me says Feliz Navidad to the Mexican cashier
Was that polite or patronizing?
did you pre-order your christmas KFC this year /ck/
KFC really doesn't have the lines anymore since literally every single place that offers food now offers some form of fried chicken during Christmas. KFC still makes a lot of money since they offer baked chicken meals and people rarely have convection ovens large enough to properly cook a whole chicken.
dim sum time /ck/!
pan fried radish cake
shrimp stuffed eggplant
pork and veggies cake
>I drink beer for the flavor
Hey, I just found out that my dad goes through a fry pan a year because he buys the cheapest one he can find at Wal-Mart. I was thinking of getting him one that would last a bit longer the next time I see him, as sort of a late Christmas gift.
8 inches, non-stick, 50 or 60 dollars at most. What would you recommend?
Your dad has the right idea. If hes using non stick cookware, the coating is going to wear out no matter what you spend on the pan. The only thing you should really look for in a teflon pan is a thick enough bottom. Expect to throw it out or teach him to use real pans.
If your dad can't make a cheap teflon last longer than a year he obviously doesn't give a shit about, or know how to, take care of his kitchen equipment.
Don't bother buying him something nice when you're only going to see it fucked over the next time you go to visit.
Hello and welcome to generic fast food joint, may I take your order?
Whats the general consensus concerning Newmans Own?
I actually like some of the stuff they make.
Feelgood shit for dumb cunts who don't know the meaning of the term "administrative expenses." Quality is little better than every other thing on supermarket shelves, yet charges astoundingly more for the product.
I rarely buy it myself. But, it's usually pretty good. If I'm eating mostly for fuel/nutrition, I usually go for simpler foods. If I'm eating for getting the most enjoyment of the food, I'm probably making it myself, as the anticipation and activity that goes with food prep is more than half of what I like about a good meal.
Hey /ck/, I want to organize a LOTR movienight with some friends and was wondering if you guys had any ideas what would be some great middle-earth food that would go along with it?
I'm not a very experienced cook, but I was thinking of taking a stab at some English pies or something. Some nice dark beers to wash everything down as well.
How does /ck/ fry their chicken?
I have no friend or family, I am from poland and visiting Canada to do my engineering phD.
I'm like to cook but my hostel not have any kitchen for me to cook (I am removed from residences on campus for the winter break).
I will sit and watch all leaked movies on piratebay.
What some christmas and comfy foods can I buy from the store? Not cooking involved, because I do not have a stove.
I talk to my mother already.
If your English is this poor, there is no way you are getting a PHD in engineering OP.
That being said, just eat whatever you want from the store. Get a ham or rotisserie chicken.
And call your mom again.
Do you have a favorite fast food burger? I like the Arbys classic roast beef with horsey sauce and curly fries on it
I've volunteered to make Christmas dinner this year, and I was thinking of doing a braised beef dish, as it sounds like a nice hearty main course for winter time. I've never made a big dish of braised beef, so I was just wondering about any tips. Thinking of doing something with red wine and porcini mushroom, but I'm open to all kinds of suggestions. Also still pretty up in the air about side dishes, so suggestions there are totally welcome too.
If you've never done it before, don't worry, pot roast beef is extremely simple: you brown the beef (usually a chuck roast), cover it with flavorful liquid, then leave it to simmer for a few hours.
A good starting point would be to watch the Good Eats episode on pot roast, and look up recipes for Beouf Bourguignon for a classic version.
>I've volunteered to make Christmas dinner
>two days before Christmas I still have no idea wtf i'm doing
i wanna be the fly on the wall watching your family eating a kfc big bucket and making small talk
>probably the technique that requires the most amount of instructions and experience in the age of widespread thermometers for ovens and grills
yeah, nah. ur fucked op. go with something deep fried, pan fried, steamed, baked, grilled, smoked or sous vide instead.
What do you eat when you're hungry at midnight?
I was busy at work trying to get shit done so I wouldn't come in during Christmas and now it's 11:30 and I dunno what's open at this hour.
Are you seriously young enough to not know who Dave Thomas was?
Dinner, /ck/. You?
My xmas eve chow was black cherry bourbon and brown sugar coated ham with mashed potatoes.
The ham was honestly, the best I've ever had. I swear on my life.
I also had beet pickled eggs and deviled eggs.
