What standard meals do you make when you want to throw together a decent meal without extreme cost or hassle?

Do you listen to music when you cook?

Where'd you get the hero? Is carrot ginger soup a regular item for you, or an experiment?

mattpod / sc -

The hero came from a place on 24th and 9th that we call "Weird Deli" because of its vague feeling of belonging to a different country or era. Weird Deli's main attraction is its curiously low prices.

Carrot ginger soup is a relatively recent addition to the repertoire, but it and other soups are gaining frequency. Sunday is usually the biggest cooking day for me, and the soup was left over from then. (It's as good or better after sitting a day.)

A soup/bread/salad meal is hard to beat for ease of prep. Pasta is a staple, as noted before. Baked chicken thighs with lemon, olives, and cous cous couldn't be easier.

I will often listen to music while cooking, but it's not a requirement. Last night was the Kinks.

Schoboats - you should try putting on some Redbone while you're cooking. It makes you better at cooking, and makes life seem like a jolly holiday through America!

I've found that Aretha Franklin's rendition of "Spanish Harlem" is good cooking music. Problem is there aren't too many meals out there that take 3 minutes and 29 seconds to cook.

you'll have to ask strach but i'm assuming that whatever "bran buds" are, you can cook them in under 3:29

"Bran buds" is making an enthusiastic and exaggerated chomping motion at the air and then rubbing your tummy and saying, "My, but these bran buds were delicious, and so filling!" Sorry, Strach, I love you!
