Challenges of Learning to Cook while backpacking

Eggs every way you can make them . Make your easiest meal . Breakfast , lunch , or dinner . Or use the local markets to reheat foods . Meet people at the pub and get invited to dinner . Meet people at the hostels . Cook meals with them .

The B&B breakfast from hell

It's not a bed and breakfast . It's a hotel with a cheap so called breakfast if that . If you like going there . Skip the breakfast . Tell them you have a lovely place but the so called breakfast is terrible .

Another Ho hum food experience in Palo Alto

I was talking to my nephew and his wife this weekend . They had a family reunion dinner at Baume . They said the food was great , but the atmosphere was ridiculous . It was so dark in there a gentleman was seated across the room eating his food with a head lamp on . They laughed and laughed about this . I saw the picture .

How do you send back food without pissing off the server or chef ?

I have no idea . Worked in a restaurant when I was just out of High School and saw what happens . I have never done it . I just grin and bare it .

Calling a (not young) woman "Young Lady"

Good evening . Can I get you something to drink ?

Sketchy Stuff We Resort To In Kitchens

I feel sorry for the piece of food who fell out of the pan onto the floor . Looking at it laying there ."Please don't put me in the garbage," it screams out . I put it back in the pool with the others .

Calling a (not young) woman "Young Lady"

So I have read most of the replies . How do you want to addressed if I ever wait on you ? Not that I'm a waiter . Maybe someday . Who knows .

Chowhound Beta Site Part V

Marssy,
Will you help me with getting the post on the right board . I often post on general topics . For myself I think it's a general topic . Then you move it to the board where it should go . Will you continue to do this ? My hash tagging is a mess also . I don't really care about all the technicalities . I just like posting .

Hang in there . I miss the people who were close to me also . I found for myself the holidays are a big work up . I Like your thinking . Do something different . I am starting to live my life as a holiday . I work , I cook , and I play . Enjoy life , it's over before you know it . Gather with friends and family . Cheers .

Do you appy foods to your face or skin ?

My skin and face are getting pretty beat from the sun and I'm just getting older . Have any of you applied avocado , olive oil , cucumbers , olive oil , or whatever other foods to your face or skin to keep that younger look ? I have heard of people doing this . Does it work ? Or just go out and buy some skin cream ? Curious .

Consumer Reports finds fecal contamination in ground beef

Consumer Reports finds fecal contamination in ground beef

Or grind your own . I cut beef into 1 " 1/2 squares . Put in freezer for twenty minutes then into the food processor and pulse until you like the texture .

A tribute of sorts to A-1 steak sauce, perhaps the worst steak sauce ever.

On a steak . No . Salt and pepper only . If the steak is ground I'll use it . Steak sauce of any brand I do not buy . If I am out to eat and it's on the table . Sure I would use it on ground beef .

Grill pan: is it worth it?

I never use mine . I don't even know why it's called a grill pan . Does it taste like grilled meat . No . Oh , it leaves some grill marks . BFD . A pain to clean . You can have mine also .

Short Pulls--What Do You Do?

Rip off . I hate that . My local brewery pours over the fill line which is marked at 16.90 oz. or 1/2 liter in their beer mugs . They call that a pint .

So did you just wear the stain ?

I was so tired eating lunch yesterday . Sore back , I had trouble eating my fries . I would lose grip on a couple of them and they would fall onto my T shirt . Ketchup and mustard . Kind of embarrassed here . I laughed and walked out . Saying to the waitress . " I wear my food ". This wasn't all that bad but just thinking .
When you were out on a date , party , with S.O , alone , or other and it spilled on your lap or shirt . The wine , spaghetti ,etc, etc. Your embarrassing moment being the spill master ?
