Post your depressing, lonely, single guy meals.
Grilled, marinated frog legs. Learn how to cook.
How about girlfriends who think they are good cooks, but their food looks pig disgusting.
grilled duck breast and vegetables
Other than that, it looks good.
This isn't my pic, but it's probably the worst thing I've been eating since moving out of my mom's house. This is something I only have to eat maybe 2 or 3 days a month because it's a 30 cent meal.
Would a turkey and gouda sandwich with Cheetos be considered a depressing single guy meal?
cooking is easy as fuck. you losers need to man up
>mfw i cant post in these threads because my wife is a good cook and there is always something cooking for dinner when i get home from work
Will try it next time (I really hope there's never another time).
Also, pic (not mine) is what I ate for dinner about an hour ago. I like to bake them on a sheet of aluminum foil, then just carry it over to my desk when it's done. No dishes to wash. I know very well how to cook properly, but laziness always wins if I'm only cooking for myself.
Currently preparing this, but without the egg or any meat. Hardly 'depressing' if you know its history and significance.
I know well the bane of laziness what I tend to do is freeze soups, stews, etc. in portion sizes and just toss them in a pot when I want them.
Another trick is to make a stuffing, (bread crumbs, cream cheese, herbs, sauted onion and garlic) and freeze that in chunks. Then all I have to do is defrost it a bit, shove it inside some meat and put it in the oven.
I eat oatmeal with raisins pretty much every day for dinner. For lunch I eat 2 bologna sandwiches, on workdays anyway. A couple times a week I'll splurge on a chicken/rice meal or enchiladas. I'm cutting weight though that's why.
That gravy probably isn't homemade to begin with. Though you don't use bones to make gravy, you use the bones to make a stock. If that stock has a good color, the gravy has a good color. The brown color also doesn't come from the bones themselves really, it comes from the bones being roasted. So get some good color on the bones before tossing them in a pot.
self-made Pyongyang-style mul-naengmyeon. idiot roommates turned off the ice-maker in the freezer.
I'm out of turkey. I only buy them once a year. The day after thanksgiving you can get them for 40 to 50 cents a pound. I always pick up 4 or 5. Butcher two or three, make stock with the bones and then pull out the whole turkeys for large dinners over the course of winter and spring.
Yes. Sometimes iced water.
I--it's Korean Naengmyeon!
five months ago, I made spaghetti .. i ate spaghetti everyday for 2 months +. Then I started buying frozen pizzas. I ate those everyday for 2 months. Now this month, I am eating a mix of frozen pizza, hotdogs/hamburgers.
Worst meal was moldy bread and ketchup. I need help, there is no way I should be allowed to live by myself. Seriously. I am not well these past 5 years.
Some fucking Far Right benefit scrounger's concoction. And English all day breakfast on a Pizza base.
This is why I enjoy being Scottish as we are not as fucking stupid as the English, and we may finally leave the UK soon.
I'm not white. You're missing out if you feel that way though.
>me eating alone forever isn't depressing
>its significantly depressing
found your pic btw
I do that sometimes, it works very well with Mexican food.
From top, left to right:
Sour cream, an ice cream container full of Mexican-style beef that my mom made and gave me earlier, shredded cheese, smoked turkey, and smoked gouda.
Middle: Pizza rolls I couldn't finish.
Condiments in the door:
Marmite, a peanut butter jar full of sauerkraut, tartar sauce, spicy mustard, ketchup, and fake maple syrup.
Won't bother listing the drinks. Oh, and the light doesn't work. Yes, I've tried different bulbs, I'm not a fucktard.
Never used bones to make a gravy?
Fry in a pan with bones and onions, add a bit of water, then reduce, add thickening agents and herbs. Gravy. Obviously strain it after cooking to remove bones etc.
Do you even activated almonds tbh fam?
>eating with other people
>having to make small-talk while TRYING to give my body its needed sustenance
>having to wait for them to finish
Eh, no thanks. I'd be actually depressed around others. I've always enjoyed eating alone.
If I'm cooking a bird I'll drop the neck in the gravy but if you're making proper stocks it's never used. Congrats though, you've managed to completely circumnavigate the correct process of making gravy in a way that actually yields gravy.
It's more work then you should have to do but it sounds like it works.
I don't think I could've asked for a better reply. Thanks anon.
Dashi is a soup base... was just commenting on how it looks nice.
I know your dish is Korean but dashi is dashi even if it was invented in Japan.
I love making normal Dashi for any fish dishes or noodle dishes I make.
Gently boil a few leaves of Kombu (seaweed) for about 10 minutes, when done remove off the heat and remove the kombu, and add salmon/bonito flakes for 1 minute, then strain.
What is left is amazing, you can add any other ingredients to the dashi base... some fish stock, or radishes etc
With the base you can experiment. And the ingredients are cheap as hell.
But of course. Never could understand people who actually enjoy eating around others.
Ah yes...yes of course. But, I stick to Korean food for a number of reasons (mainly because of the Korean-owned grocery stores around here, which I frequent). Plus, I'm sure my roommates won't touch the kimchi after they get a good whiff of it.
Not depressed, lonely or single maybe it's because I don't eat crap - salad, grilled chicken, fried mushrooms and bacon takes like 15 min to do so get a grip and eat some better food you fag
You must be fucking pretty stupid if you think we can't.
Look up or talk to oil rig workers at the last referendum we had, and find out that they were told to keep quiet about the new fields found in the North Sea. They didn't want it getting out.
But we have natural gas, fresh water, plenty of electrical reserves, high tourism area, good export of Whisky. And that is to name a few things.
Also we don't have fuck wits running up and down annoying any Muslim or Pole because they are ignorant.
We have a few, but only a few, the rest of us are happy to be among other nationalities and hence why businesses have been coming to Scotland to employ people.
Cry salty tears when we leave English Neo-Nazi.
My main problem is the 45min worth of cleaning that is required after I try and get creative in the kitchen. I get off work, sit down on the couch for an hour, feed the doges, and then make a pizza or some easy shit before I pass out with half of it left on the counter.
Looks like flavorless unseasoned turkey, mashed potatoes, with no garlic or butter, and box stuffing all covered in a disgusting gelatin based brown flavorless gravy. Your parents must be proud.
I just know my roommates would steal an egg or two. That's why I ONLY fill my section of the fridge with Asian food that actually takes time to prepare. Won't steal it if they can't read it.
Pan fried salmon in citrus and dill on a torts roll with avocado and spicy mayo.
How fucking hard is it to make something delicious? Jesus fucking Christ, have some self respect.
Those fruit snacks though is the shit!
A person hasn't lived until they've had pizza with
>Burger King Wings?!?!
With my single life status, I went out last night at like 9pm slightly hungry. I had no idea what to eat so I started driving towards a plaza with a McD's, BK, and Wendy's. Ended up going to the grocery store and buying frozen pizzas and shit to make quesadillas.
Put some Little Debbies in the freezer and get back at me.
Any of the chocolate Pop Tarts are GOAT frozen as well.
And suprisingly I don't have roaches. I think the geckos that get in keep them at bay.
>tfw no roaches scatter when I open the pantry
This just makes me sad.
I use easy meals too. They aren't fun, happy, oh this is good-type meals. It's more of an "I am so broken, that this is what I can bare making" before going back to bed. Ugh. Sad pic anon, sad pic.
ouais c'est pas top je sais mais ça n'est pas totalement faux, car je l'ai minutieusement choisie : c'est la photo la plus ressemblante que j'ai trouvée qui ressemble à ma tartiflette...
de tout façon je suis déprimé j'ai aucune envie de prendre de photo.
Yeah. Not gonna be fucked to go to the store after sleeping 16 hours. It's my day off.
Mah boy. I can't cook for shit, so that old lady Michelina is my personal chef.
1) 3min in the microwave
2) open it and stir ir
3) another minute in the microwave
4) let cool
6) cry yourself to sleep
How I wish I had a real dinner right now but this is cheaper than buying everything to make too much food for one person.
i usually like the toughness of the buckwheat when eating naengmyeon. I eat korean food frequently but i would eat it more if i didnt have to drive 30m to a korean town place.My next dish to try is gamjatang.
Many people are scared to cook.
Go and get a book on cooking, the basics, how to roast meat, how to fry this and that.
Once you have the basics, the rest is easy and all about experimenting.
After all that is how all the wonderful dishes in the world happened, by experimenting and knowing the basics.
