My aunt's step dad lost his wife and apparently his diet now is mostly chicken nuggets and fries, since he had to learn how to even do that (use an oven).

I made him some baked mostaccioli, just normal pasta with red sauce and cheese - except I like to caramelize my minced onions & other veggies before adding tomatoes, so they really blend into the sauce.

He asked if I put veggies in it. Like, yeah, all pasta has veggies. He said he'll have to fish out the ones he doesn't like. I said - you won't even be able to tell they're there.

"well then why did you even add them?"

:/

Please learn how to cook and eat vegetables. Once you're like 24 you should be over this shit. If you didn't like veggies in childhood - try them again at a nice restaurant, or otherwise prepared in a way that cooks them down if the raw flavor is what you're afraid of. I get his generation expected the wife to cook every meal, but damn you're really just making yourself helpless later in life.

Edit - he is helping me fix me car tho (already bought 2 new keys and a starter without us asking) so I'll just blend up the next sauce so he can't even pick them out or tell they're there.

Omg yes. When my now husband and I moved in together my stepson was 4, almost 5, and refused to eat veggies.

Happy to say this morning he begged me to "save Brussel sprouts from dinner tomorrow" (when he's back at his moms) because they're his favorite. He's now 9.

It's ridiculous hoe many adults won't even look at a vegetable. My BIL is in his 40s and straight up won't eat any vegetables except for corn (which we all know doesn't count that much). He wonders why his kids won't eat them.

It is decently good for you. But corn can also spike your blood sugar. So best to eat it in moderation.

6

u/cheesemongrel938491 May 15 '22

It's not that it's not good for you but the higher sugar and also we often don't absorb as much if the nutrients because we tend to poop out the corn whole.

My ex roommate was like this, 42 years old and wouldn’t touch a fruit or vegetable. He considered cooked green peppers and onions to be enough vegetables and referred to them as “roughage”. I couldn’t get him to eat vegetables no matter how I prepared them. The only way I could get him to touch a fruit was if I put ice cream in a smoothie, essentially making it a milk shake.

For my birthday, I told my wife that I wanted a steak dinner. She asked me where I'd like to go, and I just said that I'd make it myself, she was kind of taken aback that I'd want to cook on my birthday.

So I just say: I promise you, I can make a better steak dinner than any steakhouse at half the cost.

After I get done - medium rare steak with a beautiful crust, basted in butter, thyme, rosemary and garlic, garlic roasted asparagus finished with some parmesan, and some mashed red potatoes - she takes a bite and says "Yep. You were right."

Eating out is not only horrible for your body and wallet, but to add insult to injury, it still doesn't taste as good.

u/WhoaItsCody May 15 '22

That’s what I’m talking about! Good on you, that’s my kinda steak too, now I’m hungry. lol. My mother cooked everyday when we were kids, had a big garden too. Raised us to do the same.

Unless it’s something we can’t get, there’s 100% chance the food at home is a million times cheaper and tastes SO much better.

I loved cooking, so I picked up a job apprenticed in a French restaurant kitchen, stuck it for 3 years until I noticed I would go home after school and work, open the fridge and look at the dying fruits and veggies inside, close it and go to a friends place for family table ... I lost the fun of cooking. I quit, went back to my old job [inside outside mechanic] and regained the love of cooking. I do cook for my own parties, and before going handicapped would cater parties for friends because I enjoy the challenge of food planning for food issues in the attending guests and making it enjoyable for the guests.

I have to admit, cooking pretty much everything from scratch lets you control what you eat for avoiding additives and odd ingredients - I have allergies to mushrooms [used as 'natural flavors'] shellfish [in oriental fish sauce as umami] and palm/coconut - because it is the new fad 'superfood' or is traditional in the dish [like coconut milk is in a lot of pacific rim foods] so I have to adjust the foods to not have the ingredients, or that are put into foods by manufacturers - palm oil for a long time was cheaper than regular vegetable based oils and is now the dried shortening found in almost all commercial baking mix and as a dairy substitute [coffee whitener], fish sauce is dumped into almost every asian food as an umami boost because MSG is evil, and mushroom extracts/powder is the european MSG replacement. SO I use the best ingredients I can afford [so I can't do steak and shrimp all the time, but I am 80 percent vegetarian anyway] and invest in herbs and spices.

u/renosbeenabadgirl May 14 '22

Familiarize yourself with seasonings, herbs and spices will be your best friend! It's the biggest favor to do yourself when you start out. Onion and garlic powder, salt, white and black pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin, and Italian seasoning are a great simple starter kit, but you can easily Google what kind of spices and herbs go good in different kinds of cuisine as well. Over time you just kinda remember what herbs belong to which category and you can basically add them in however you want and it'll still come out fire. Everyone I know tells me I'm the best cook they know and that's all I do is just season my food lol. Good luck, it's easier than it seems and gets easier every time.

Sometimes the process itself can be more rewarding than the result. Cooking with friends or your significant other can be wonderful to bring you closer together and catch up on their lives. If you’re alone but feel like cooking, podcasts or listening to some of your favorite albums can be so much fun. :)

u/danimadi33 May 14 '22

I'm insane at cooking stuff that will taste good, my mom would make me cook with her a lot as a kid.

The best thing about cooking is to have someone else taste it and be like "oh my god this is awesome" and the feeling when someone asks for seconds.

But for the rest - I'm just like, too depressed bro. If I'm cooking for myself, I'm just putting a sausage on bread, and add ketchup. If I'm feeling a little happy, I might add a slice of cheese.

Idk why, but I can just easily go without food for days, just because I don't feel like it.

On a bright note - I got prescribed antidepressants!!! This is my second day taking them, and yesterday I had the urge to play games for the first time in 2 years. I forget how fun it is to... have fun? sometimes.

Now I wanna make pancakes... The first thing my mom ever taught me to make.

Throw in whichever frozen fruits you may have into the batter for some unexpected surprises :) and grab all possible toppings for the pancakes. Can’t go wrong with a breakfast like that!

3

u/danimadi33 May 14 '22

I checked my fridge and we only have tomatoes. They're technically a fruit, but I added lots of sugar into my pancake mix already.

I'll wait for the convenience store to open to grab chocolate and make chocolate topping, I think I could also buy some strawberries on the way.

But now I'm left with raw pancake mix for the next hour.

While I was writing this I think I heard someone break a car window, because I heard a loud glass breaking noise and an alarm go off.

Can antidepressants make you way too talkative?

1

u/danimadi33 May 14 '22

Wait I just realised there are 24/7 stores, but in the time it takes me to get to the closest one, the nearest convenience store to me will open.

I'll probably wait then. I think I've heard somewhere that letting your mix stay makes your pancakes fluffier. Or my sister procrastinated way too much

3

u/PabloSanchezDaGOAT May 14 '22

That’s actually true; letting your pancake mix sit for even just 5 or 10 minutes before putting them on the griddle/pan/skillet/whatever does make them better.

This is why I love a good home made sandwich. A hefty stack of deli turkey, provolone, spring mix, Roma tomatoes and mayo on a seedy whole grain bread. No cooking involved. Also- seasoning the tomatoes with salt and pepper is an absolute game changer. Can't put them on sandwiches without it.

u/renosbeenabadgirl May 14 '22

Tbf I think you just need more practice, I routinely only have the pans I serve out of left to clean when I'm done and I use HELLA utensils, bowls, plates, etc when I cook. I had to learn to clean as I go because I use so much stuff that it would take me two hours to clean the kitchen after I finished. I don't have a dishwasher, so if I can do it by hand while I prepare and cook like five different elements of a meal with no interference to the food, it's definitely doable. Could I do it flawlessly a year ago when I started? No, but it's not that hard to learn and makes life so much easier.

6

u/kogasapls May 14 '22

It requires timing and forethought. I don't mean you should be washing your bowls while you're stir frying, but if you look diligently for opportunities to clean while cooking, you will find them and get most of the cleaning done, most of the time.

u/Agrochain920 May 14 '22

In a backwards way, veganism made me enjoy cooking. To put simply, my entire family decided to go vegan one day, I was around 17 at that time. I basically only warmed frozen pizzas or boiled some unsalted macaronis .

Once they went vegan I was determined to keep eating meat so much that I decided that I was going to cook my own food from that day, and so I did.

I still cook all the time and it's one of the few things I look forward to every day. Learning new recipes, improving on the ones I already know, it's just so rewarding.

Also fyi, I'm not hating on veganism, even though I was at the time. Vegan food is great if you do it right.

That being said I also gained a fuck ton of knowledge and can cook every one of my non professional friends under the table, but the passion to cook specifically for myself is gone.

I'll pull out the big guns if I'm cooking for a few people but otherwise I don't actually eat that way day to day.

When I was a junior in college I was moving into an apartment with my then best friend and his older brother. I knew neither one would bother to learn to cook and didnt want to eat frozen meals or fast food every day, so I got my parents to teach me some basics. Turns out Im a pretty good home cook. Ive been making some basics until last year I started HelloFresh and its been really fun learning to make even more stuff.

I wish I loved to cook, I just don’t even care to eat it when it’s done Bc I’ve been dealing with it. I get full really fast so after tasting etc I’m just completely over it by the time it’s done…I really wish I enjoyed it :(

I started with scrambled eggs too!

u/TongZiDan May 15 '22

I occasionally cook for myself and really enjoy it but if I have to cook or if anyone else is going to eat it, it's just work.

tasting while cooking is the best!

I'm an ok cook. Sometimes I enjoy it.

But I fucking love baking and I'm pretty damn good at it.

I actually first found my love of cooking when I was in a pretty bad place. I didn't cook for myself - hardly ate, really. My brain was busy telling me I was worthless and a waste of everything and undeserving of love, and I figured, "If I make something and they end up liking it, that means they like a tiny part of me?" I got help and am thankfully much better, but the love of cooking for others remains <3

I love to cook man. I fucking love it!

u/SableyeFan May 15 '22

I like the challenge it gives me. And you suddenly become a lot more popular when you say you can cook and back up your claim

u/Cyanbite_24 May 15 '22

I started to love cooking starting with scrambled eggs too

Then I started learning how to make rice, then fried rice, then pasta, karaage, and so on

Cooking, aside from gaming and watching anime, is to me the most fun thing to do

u/whal3man May 15 '22

When I see people that say they can’t cook I never really understood them like boil them water and put the pasta in with salt until it becomes edible. but some people deadass don’t know how to cook pasta or turn on an oven.. I’m very thankful that my mom taught me from a young age how to be competent in the kitchen.

Your own cooking will taste good

But your Mom cooking will taste Perfect

I bought a Rachel Rae cookbook once…the recipes were basically inedible…complete crap.

u/Anxious_Introvert_47 May 15 '22

God, all she can cook is pasta. That's literally her only thing. I can't stand her.
