    Rice. Because when you dont have a job yet food can get expensive.

    I got my diploma. Looking for jobs. Anyhow, I want to use my instant pot more. One thing I have been doing a lot with my instantoot is making rice based dishes. I have to admit Japan and korea know what they are doing with rice. I tried a pickled plum for the first time ever today. Aside from that chicken thighs are also amazing for just how versatile they are and how much of a bargain they can be.

    Food is fun. It gives me a creative outlet. I enjoy making snacks and meals for folks. Food tends to taste better with a friend. Good food can also help you feel better when your depressed or lonely.

    So what foods do you guys like making?

    I love grilling, smoking, outdoor cooking -- and Cajun style gumbo, soups, potato soup...

    We also got an instapot, and it's kinda fun. Also, an air fryer - to make "fried" stuff without baptizing them in hot grease is fun, too.

    I guess I'll have to try red beans and rice in the instapot!

    Instant pot red beans and rice is delicious. I like making fried pickles.

    Deep frying can honestly get annoying.

    Yeah, we don't deep fry anything anymore, and I rarely eat anything deep fried in restaurants.

    (Except catfish - I just can't seem to resist a good fish fry!)

    When I was a poor starving student, I made a lot of dal. Like seriously, a lot. A one pound bag of lentils cost a dollar, tomatoes and onions are cheap, and rice is cheap. One bag of lentils makes about six servings. I lived at a high altitude and couldn't afford a pressure cooker, so it took forever in a stock pot on the stove but that didn't deter me.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    I like fish and chips myself.

    I did not grow up eating catfish or pork so I stay away from those.

    I want to learn how to make my own sweets and such. Michi is delicious. Doriyaki is delicious. Cheesecake is what I would hope if I ever got married we could have as a cake. I dont enjoy a lot of sugar in sweets though as it can make my teeth hurt.

    I've actually found some good options to make them in my air fryer!

    Yeah, I don't do sweets much --- dark chocolate is my go-to, because it's not really sweet.

    Dark chocolate!

    Thursday is pork chop night. That is all.

    And, bacon.
