moved in with a friend that has never cooked meat before.
what meat should I teach him to cook?
Are there any secrets to efficiently removing thyme leaves? It's great I'd there is a long single branch, but many thymes they fork into many smaller branches and its laborious to harvest.
Is this one of those things that is just a labor of love or is there a better way?
If you grow your own and prune it properly, can you avoid the smaller branches?
Motherfuck, just did like 16 stalks of this for my stew.
Top few leaves snaps off easy, just use that.
The rest of the stalk you can grab at the non-root end and just pull with thumb and forefinger to remove most of them.
My thyme is growing like a motherfucker, in spite of the cold weather. Nothing can stop this shit. It's nearly overtaken the rosemary I planted in the same pot; the sage never stood a chance. It's spilling over the edges and cascading down to the porch. I don't even know what to do with all this fucking thyme.
UK here. Soon off to university (or college) and definitely going self-catered.
Apart from the basics like instant noodles, what would you say are some cheap, reliable, easy dishes to make not just for myself but for friends in my accommodation?
Preferably vegetarian dishes. I plan to eat meat in uni but vege dishes are still priority.
pic semi related, fish and chips has always been good to me.
You'll have more money then you think for food, just rotate some basic stuff and you'll be fine.
Pizza and pasta obviously.
Spaghetti bolognese and chilli con carne are quick and easy.
Frozen burgers, birds eye chicken breast things etc. with chips.
is chicken tikka masala the california roll of indian food where people silently judge you for being such a scrub, or more equivalent to the pizza of italian food where it's popular because it's good, not because its less intimidating that other menu items?
Mmmmmf, nothing like some McDs to get you going, am I right?
True, although BK to get you going is similar

>a pit rat, gummeye candeeeeeye
Even if you add and like beans in your chili, you secretly admit to yourself that you're wrong.
My family got chickens a few months back, and now they started bringing me eggs. Are these eggs safe to use in recipes that require raw eggs? Are there any precautions I should take?
The shit that storebought eggs go through is supposed to make them safer right? Sorry if I sound like a retard, I was very sheltered growing up.
The shit corporate eggs have to go through to be cleaned is because of the massive amounts of animal abuse and downright terrifying living conditions the chickens are in.
I'm guessing your family aren't psychopaths that are abusing their animals, so they should be fine with a quick rinse with lukewarm water.
don't think it matters. I believe america takes more precautions with eggs than europe, and europeans don't get sick from eggs. raw eggs are still raw eggs, and you should always be cautious about that. An extra thing to pay attention to is to make sure the eggs are not fertillized. It would not be fun to open an eggs and find a partially developed embryo inside.
what do you think of the mighty sailor ainsley?
Grew up in the UK so I had a life filled with Ainsley before he was a meme, I've always had a bit of a crush on him
He's so jolly and flamboyant, you need to have no soul in order to dislike the man
I know there is better coffee places out there but lets have a thread about it.
>literally everyone who eats rice just eats plain white rice like an East Asian peasant
>literally nobody in the West knows about pilaf or even Persian rice and potatoes
Plenty of people know about pilaf and persian rice, dude. I make persian rice (yes, with nice crispy tah deeg) all the time. And Zereshk Polow is one of my all time favorite foods, which I make pretty regularly, and I'm as white as they come. I ALWAYS prefer basmati rice - based dishes. Aged basmati is the elder god tier rice, it's the one rice I'm never without.
Point being, IDK what backwater you live in, but there is multitudes of people in the states that eat that and know those kind of rice...

Who makes or where can I find a nice double hinged corkscrew ?
I have a couple like the one in the pic and they are functional but I want a good one. As in a higher quality one.
