It's as quick to stir fry stuff fresh than defrost an already cooked stir fry surely!

I enjoy cooking most of the time, although it can be a pain in the arse when you have to cook three different meals every night - one for a vegetarian, one for a stroppy fussy brat and one for the mrs and me.

That's what I would think, which is why I agreed with John when he mentioned it.

I agree with John and I think he means more stir-fried veggie stuff. I don't think they freeze very well. I wouldn't freeze them and would just make enough for one serving. Just noodles is something else entirely.


I'm talking about stir fried veggies and noodles.

I'm sure it'll just wash off with a good scrubbing.

The default "oh fucking hell it's 5.15 and our son wants his dinner" dish in our house is black bean sauce with wraps, guacamole, yoghurt and cheese. It's cheap, can be ready in 30 minutes and is a piece of piss to cook. He loves it too.

Okay, you're not nuts.

A week's worth of slow cooked pork rib with a stew I made out of onions, jalapenos, and a tangy, hot homemade BBQ sauce/salsa. I had a Carolina BBQ sauce recipe and improvised.

More vinegary than I was planning, but still good.

My go to any time meal with things I always have in the house

Tuna, butterbean, onion broccoli salad with mustard vinegraite. Fast, filling, healthy. And apart from the broccoli and onion which I normally have in the house, it's tinned.

Also, toast.

Is that a euphemism for the contents of your diaper?


I'd think you were trying to be funny, if it was. . .

Funny.

I love eating, and i'm really glad some people enjoy cooking, but I definitely don't. Doesn't interest me in the slightest. It's an art I just don't care about learning.

If I could live on raw food I just had to cut up or clean to eat, I would.
