It’s really great if you’re cooking with someone else because it cuts down the work a lot. Like I handled the loaf and my boyfriend did the glaze, potatoes, and green beans.
The corn added a nice sweetness and texture difference. The cauliflower was more of a filler since it was riced, so it turned to sort of a mushy texture.
Your assumption is wrong. I listen to a lot of podcasts, but not 99% Invisible. This was inspired by Simon Cade’s video, which I did link to in the article.
Dang, that sucks. : / Not sure what approaches you’ve tried, but maybe something super direct and with some solutions to see what you can get them to agree on. For example a chore chart or setting aside an hour or two each week to clean together.
Yeah...just not doing chores in a game of chicken with the other person tends not to work. Have you tried talking to them? If yes, how did that go?
Nice! Switching off who has to do the most disliked chores is a good way to avoid resentment. The perfect situation is when one person’s disliked chores are the ones the other person likes! My boyfriend doesn’t like folding laundry and I don’t mind it (good excuse to watch Netflix), so he switches the clothes between…
Well, the key is that you do want to have a drink in your hand. But it doesn’t have to be booze. Get sparkling water with a twist of lime or cranberry juice or soda. People won’t notice. Besides fitting in, having a drink gives you an easy out, all you have to say is, “I’m going to grab another drink. It was nice…
Thanks, glad you like the series! Pre-made food items are also pretty costly, from pre-cut veggies to sauces and other condiments. Cooking will save you a TON of money. Two investments you might consider that will save you time and money in the long run: a good chef’s knife and a slow cooker.
Ooh, good luck! Come back and tell me how they turn out. :D
Yeah...I don’t bake nearly as much as I cook...for a reason.
Start small and go slow. It makes it a lot easier. :)
Sure! Cooking is all about making modifications to customize dishes to your tastes. Homemade pizza is always tasty, no matter what you put on top. :)
That does sound good! Thanks for sharing an alternative recipe.
Sounds like a solid idea. What sort of stuff did you lay out in that agreement? How do you use it after kids are in the picture (like as a reference guide or in some other way?)
Umeboshi is the best. And it’s fun to say!
YES. I’m almost out and the thought of running out before being able to restock is very sad.
I mentioned at the end of the article that you can use wine that’s already been opened, but it shouldn’t be so old that it starts to change taste.
I’d try cutting out the water and reducing the milk/tomato sauce by half (you can always add more if the risotto is too thick). Then reduce the cooking time to 10 minutes.
