    ok, we all have to eat 3-meals-a-day daily. do u go out to eat or cook by urself? what's ur favorite food? is ur favorite food bad to ur health? do u have dislike food? is ur dislike food actually good for ur health? do u prefer to eat alone or with partner/family?

    i like to cook sometime, but kinda lonely eating by myself. icon_sad.gif i sometime go out to eat once in while, but dislike the loud noise in the restaurant. i have too many favorite foods. lol junk foods included, and yeah, i know they are bad to ur body. but they are so delicious. lol hm... dislike food... i would say fat and skinned-fur on the meat. i doubt they are any good to my body. i love to eat with my family/friend, and maybe someday with my future bf. icon_smile.gif

    share ur thought~! icon_biggrin.gif

    Here's my thing with cooking. I definitely cook for myself but it's basic. I know how to broil chicken and add some flavor. I've mastered brown rice and steaming some broccoli and putting together a salad is fool proof. Lunch is always take out during the week because of work. Breakfast again is pretty basic. I can make some desserts with a little trial and error. Usually order take out if the parties at my place.

    Having said all that, one of my requirements ( not really but would be a nice added bonus ) is that my future partner really knows how to cook. I've thought about taking a cooking class but need to fit it in a tight schedule. Either the class or standing in front of my partner and letting him reach around and take my hands and show me how to actually cook works for me. OR, just giving him the run of the kitchen.

    There really is nothing like a great home cooked meal unless the meal is cooked by me. Then all of a sudden going out more often is probably the better choice if you want better taste and variety.

    I cook for a living, so the less of it I have to do at home the better.

    Usually I just cook up a bunch of stuff in mass on the weekends so all I have to do is nuke the leftovers.

    LBWNS saidok, we all have to eat 3-meals-a-day daily. do u go out to eat or cook by urself? what's ur favorite food? is ur favorite food bad to ur health? do u have dislike food? is ur dislike food actually good for ur health? do u prefer to eat alone or with partner/family?


    Wow. That's a lot of bad spelling...I mean questions.
    j/k

    do u go out to eat or cook by urself?

    Since I can't afford to have a personal chef, it's one or the other. I like to cook, and also don't mind dining alone when I go out.

    what's ur favorite food?

    Pizza, sushi, sandwiches, and salads.

    is ur favorite food bad to ur health?

    Nope.

    do u have dislike food? is ur dislike food actually good for ur health?

    Yes, there are plenty of foods I dislike...both good and bad.

    do u prefer to eat alone or with partner/family?

    I think I covered this already. Dinner with friends is fun though.

    How about a good mixture of both choices? For some dates, a good restaurant, a quiet corner table, all the right ambiance make for the start of a nice evening. Other times, you can set the mood with all the right music, setting the table or maybe casually eat next to a guy at your bar/island. Both avenues can lead to a very romantic night - most important: the right date!

    I dislike restaurants. What should be a simple meal is never less than an hour and a half of sitting around.

    That said, I don't really cook now that my kids are grown and out of the house. I eat a lot of canned tuna and cottage cheese and sushi, stuff that I don't really have to prepare. I don't care much about what I eat, to be honest.

    I care somewhat more about who I eat, but that's another thread.

    I love cooking and do it whether for myself, my partner and I or when we're having company.

    I have a big cookbook collection but I usually get recipes from allrecipes.com or other sites like that because they have reviews for each recipe where people who have made it rate the recipe and give tips for changes.

    I try to cook healthy dishes for us, but some of our favorites are high in fat and calories, then my challenge is to keep our portion size down and try to make it last for a few different meals (dinner one night, lunch the next day, etc.)

    I get a lot of compliments on my cooking, so I feel pretty confident that I'm a good cook. icon_razz.gif

    i used to be a huge fan of eating out... but now i find that cooking when i have the chance is actually fun, the food tastes better as i make it exatly how i want it, and i feel better the next day. when i eat out for dinner, i usually still feel it in my system when i wake up in the morn.

    Of course, a third alternative is to mooch off of friends and relatives. But then you need to have some sort of sparkling quality that garners a dinner invitation every night.

    i try to cook when i can, but sometimes going out is just much easier to do.

    also, i need to really jump back into cooking, armed with books on other recipes.

    oh man, i could cook till the cows come home (then ill make steak). my man better love to try stuff too cuz on top of all the stuff i make properly, i love to try out new stuff and be adventurous in the kitchen. going out, to me, is a waste of a 100 bucks because i always leave thinking i could've spent that much at the grocery store and made a weeks worth of awesomeness out of it.

    I love to cook and almost never go out to eat. I don't have a favorite food, and my diet is devoid of processed crap and other junk food. As for least favorite food, the most repulsive thing to ever pass my lips is sea urchin sushi, which I suppose is good for ones health, but never ever eating it again is a risk I'm willing to take. I prefer to eat alone.

    I love eating at home and cooking for my Boy when he is here.As for eating out there is so much choice here but its hit and miss so I stick to 2 cafe's that I know to eat otherwise its being ripped off for crap food?
    At least at home you know who is cooking and they have washed there hands?
    As for fast food I hate it period!
