There's so much going on in Talk and the comments week to week that we almost can't keep up. If you're in the same boat, here's a small selection of topics and responses that have piqued our interest this week.

"'We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other.'

"I spent a year living an apartment with only a freezer and a slowcooker (!) (we discovered hummus never spoils). If you put your slow cooker on high, the water wil boil in 3-4 hrs, and boom, pasta."—GeneralTso
"I once cut open a durian. I no longer fear anything."— McNormal
"Ginger and Lavender tea and a Here Comes Honey Boo Boo marathon. The ginger and lavender will help the anxiety and the Honey Boo Boo will melt your brain so you can't process the stimuli."— Taylord
"Before I was really into cooking, I dated a girl who asked me to make some chicken soup for her when she was sick. I must have balked and admitted I really didn't know how to make chicken soup because I'll never forget her response: "YOU BOIL THE SH*T OUT OF A CHICKEN!" World's shortest recipe."— Lorenzo
"Space steak would give a new meaning to sous vide, given the vacuum of space."— Lorenzo
"If you decide to test this out in a "Food Lab" post, let me know the geographic coordinates - I'll be there waiting with a plate to catch it."— Mr. Nick
"I think you would have to build a heat-resistant robot to get the cooked steak out of the space-oven and serve it to the customer while it was still warm.
If a human tried to remove the steak once the space-oven landed, the hatch cover would still be over 900 degrees F and it would reduce his hands to cinders, even if he was wearing oven gloves."— redfish
