Speck, I will have to save the zombie flapper makeup for a later date. It is very good. After my water went to a freezing trickle, mid shower, yesterday I had to go with the 2nd look. I couldn't finish saving. Lol.

(((Curlysue))), I am sorry you are going through this.

(((Rou))), no more falling and bruises please! Your alternate personality said so I hope it starts mending quickly.

I finally got to go back and read 'some' older posts. My phone/app has not been skipping through pages correctly. Murrrcat, this is for you:

Like, don't get me wrong, if I'm not supposed to, I won't. But since he never specifically spelled it out...

Thoughts?
It probably doesn't say because they know there's no way to enforce it. They probably figure that if you want to challenge yourself you won't use notes/book.

I like to eat so I have to bake and cook. Eating out is too expensive and doesn't taste nearly as good as homemade. I should visit and cook for you. I'll made extras and freeze them for you.

I like that, Be the Northman. I am the northman.


You know what is annoying??


Text message sounds.

+ when someone texts you tiny messages instead of one massive one.

Hey

oh I forgot

to say

blah

blah

blah blah

blah blah blah

blah

blah blah



WHY CAN'T YOU JUST SEND THAT ALL TOGETHER!??!?!?

all I hear is beep beep beep beep, like my phone is having a conniption which gives me a conniption.

What I hate more than text message noises are vibrating noises.


I love the do not disturb iphone mode

yet it still makes noises so ...I lie.


I have a really big exam tomorrow waaaah my heart won't stop racing. BREATHE BREATHE BE THE NORTHMAN.

Not addressing Speckla specifically, so . . .

Whenever people talk about how eating out isn't as good as homemade I mostly question the quality of the dining establishments they frequent. It would take an incredible amount of skill to not only replicate but surpass a dish from Eleven Madison Park at home, for example. Nor would my excellent pan-roasted chicken breast ever be better than a sous vide chicken breast.
My pork buns are better than any I've ever bought, but only because I wasn't trying to skimp on filling, but I couldn't possibly replicate the addictive wok hei of stir-fried dishes (like Shanghai Gate's rice cakes) at home.
Basically I read it so often, people saying they make 90% of restaurant food better at home and it's like "wow, so many incredibly skilled home cooks that they are better than trained cooks almost all the time". I mean, if you go to restaurants where they're watching out for cost above quality and the cooks are a bunch of shoemakers, sure, but the claims get ridiculous after seeing them over and over. I know there are a lot of mediocre restaurants out there, and there are times also when something is really good, but yes, you could do it better, but I don't know, those times don't happen that often because I just try not to frequent mediocre restaurants.

Saria you master chef brain is over analyzing it. Just like I over analyze why people are dumb when it comes to the sea. They're really not dumb they just aren't knowledgable about like moi.

I say it too, but I frequent fast food and cheap places because I'm not rich. And usually it's like I could of been just as happy eating this if I made it then going to TGIF or whatever.

I wouldn't say my *insert fancy food name* is better than the *insert fancy food name * they serve at so and so. But I would say my cheeseburger tastes better than red robins.

I'm not rich. Most of the food I eat is pretty cheap/casual, with fine dining restaurants being occasional treats. I'm aware of the vast quality difference in restaurants in New York and even Boston versus the southern US, though, so I can see why you'd link non fast food with being expensive. We have tons of great casual restaurants in NYC. When I've been down south I end up kinda depressed at how few restaurants there are that aren't crappy chains.

I've eaten all kinds of food from frou-frou foods to down home cooking and there's excellent food all in between. I like cooking best that lets the taste of the food shine through. I don't like things all covered in sugar, gravy, and much of anything else. I used minimal sauce and cheese in my lasagna and rely heavily on fresh garlic, olive oil, vegetables and other fresh spices. I shuttered at the thought of eating canned or boxed foods or most everything else prepared.

I've only been to like one non chain restaurant that I loved, the chef only had one arm (not that that improves taste or anything) and it was a really small restaurant but the food was to die for. Most people did die once they got the check....jk lol.

Buuuuutttt...Saria, you are 100% correct that most dishes from high end, upscale restaurants probably couldn't be reproduced by people in their own homes. I know that I couldn't reproduce those dishes. Not sure if I'd want to. It just depends on what kinds of foods you like and what you've been exposed to and are used to eating.

But my point is that a good restaurant is a good restaurant. Even simpler restaurants (again I point to good Chinese) if the food is well-made, no, most people can't make it better at home.

I've worked in a lot of restaurants where we made relatively simple food, but nope, I don't think a lot of home cooks can do it as well or better. Believe it or not, some of us are in fact skilled at what we do.
It's no slight against home cooks and their ability to make great food, just that there's such a thing as technique employed, not to mention equipment and quality of product we have access to. If you feel you can do it better than the food you eat out all the time, then maybe pick better restaurants? And again, I don't know why people equate better to expensive or high end.

I'd say you are more than just skilled. It's a talent and an art.

I had serious hair envy for a cashier today with the most beautiful wild curls. I paid her a compliment and it made me feel good.

Everyone (most) thinks their own cooking/singing/dancing/kanoodling is the best!
