24-year-old grad student trying not to starve while simultaneously supporting the environment. Tips are appreciated.
Was that a thinly veiled "Office Space" reference I detected in this article?
Yo, on the whole I can take or leave ice cream - but I LOVE a good soy ice cream. Is that weird? It's just always so creamy and never overly sweet. Way better than the dairy stuff.
That's funny. I've always started my eggs in cold water AND pinpricked them, and I never have any trouble peeling. Am I merely an egg wizard? Can I put that on my resume?
I don't live in Chicago and have never heard of this place, but "Merchandise Mart" sounds like something out of a dystopian sci-fi novel.
For me, it couldn't be simpler: I'm poor. If I spend more than $40 a week at the grocery store, I will not have money for gas to get to work. I accept that fact, and I don't spend more than $40.
It helps that I tend to buy the same 20 things every single week. Then, when I've gotten those, I usually have about five bucks left in my budget to buy something I don't usually get, and that's my treat for the week.
I don't get this "overspending" thing. Either you have the money to get those chips, or you're spending your rent money on chips and you have a problem.
No I don't have one. And I know that I should.
I used to hate pizza. The only pizza I ever had access to as a child was school cafeteria breadtangle pizza, and too-sweet slightly-burnt frozen "pizza."
Then in college I discovered the wonders of authentic, small-town, brick-oven-fired pizza, and that was all I consumed thenceforth.
I, too, am anti-social media. But thank you for lettig us know about these changes and listening to our feedback.
Is it pizza? Is it corn? Is it cheese?
The world may never know.
If I had my druthers, I would have the traditional every morning: eggs and toast, or oatmeal, or pancakes.
However, in the name of transparency, the following is a list of things I HAVE eaten for breakfast, and my God have mercy on my soul:
-Half a package of Fig Newtons
-Ramen noodles with a raw egg in them
-V8 juice and tequila
-Chocolate frosting on saltine crackers
-A cold kimchi sandwich
My mother is practically a home farmer. She has three huge beds that take up most of her small property, and spends most of her free time out there "tending the crops." Last years we had: corn, tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, soybeans, bell peppers, blackberries, raspberries, carrots, and even pumpkins. This year she's adding sunflowers and watermelons to the list!
Just recently, I had been doing some hot and sweaty work, and when I came inside there was lemonade in the fridge. I swear, that glass of lemonade was the single most beautiful and memorable thing I've ever put in my mouth. It was heaven.
Wooden. I used to have a crappy plastic cutting board, and I can't tell you how many times my ultra-sharp knives sliced right through its top.
I've always thoughts Morningstar Farms makes some great products. A lot of them do fall into the "pretending to be meat" zone, but their protein content isn't bad.
Water in between alcoholic beverages is key. Also, don't go to bed raging drunk. I always try to stay up until the worst of the spins have worn off, or else the next day is twenty times worse.
Every morning I have two egg whites, an english muffin, and half a grapefruit. Although on weekends I like to switch it up and make banana oat pancakes.
I think I could listen to you describe that bun all day.
Nope. Too sweet. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Ugh. When paired with something VERY tart, like grapefruit.... maybe. Only maybe.
All I know is that a guy on the paleo diet recently told me he gets half his calories from fat. I'm sorry, but I will never believe that is healthy no matter how many self-proclaimed "experts" tell me it is.
I shan't hear these false words uttered about Zebra Cakes!
Lily looks like someone I would invite to parties.
I don't understand this. If an allergy or a lack of skill in the kitchen is the cause of the disintegration of a loving relationship, you have your priorities all kinds of screwed up.
The only thing that would be a "deal breaker" for me would be behavior indicative of a larger personality issue, like the refusal to try anything new.
I have never even heard of most of these flavors! I am partial to the Hot&Spicy myself. They are just barely spicy enough to notice it, so that you can easily eat half the box without having to stop for a drink. Not that I would know that or anything.
The instant I heard the first radio commercial for these, touting the "flavor of Hollandaise" (meaning, no actual Hollandaise was harmed in the making of these sandwiches), I thought to myself, "I can't wait for Serious Eats to slam these."
I have never found a frozen pizza that didn't make me want to hurl. The sauce is always either too acidic or too sweet, and the cheese never melts right.
