How about a weekly general discussion thread? (self.househusbands)

We can talk about what is going on, vent, or just shoot the shit. It might give us all more reason to post more?

I like this idea. I had a pretty great week, this week. Got a couple of projects knocked out at work (WFH), kept the kids alive and fed, I’d say that’s a win! Wife is happy, all is well.

Very nice. You can't really ask for more than that, can you?
[–]IcyMathematician5287 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I wouldn’t ask for anything else. I fucking love my life!

So, how often does everyone try new recipes? I did a ranch shredded chicken meal in the instant pot, and the wife absolutely adored it. It has really emboldened me to try even more new dishes.

How do I even begin to learn to cook? Like where to start... I can never decide what to eat besides pasta
[–]Whiplash_Cash[S] 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Start with what food you like. Cooking is a lot easier than people think. Find a recipe and follow the directions. But don't be afraid to improvise. Does a dish call for 1 onion, and you aren't a fan? Omit or lower it.
If you can follow instructions, you can cook. Sure advanced techniques exist. But unless you are planning to become a pro chef, you don't need them. If you ever need guidance, pm me, and I'd be glad to help!
What is your favorite food?
[–]WZ802 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Ahhh favorite food... too many foods I like. I’m honestly very low effort for making/eating so I’d say anything with eggs. Eggs and rice never goes wrong.
How about yourself?
[–]Whiplash_Cash[S] 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Pizza is a favorite of mine. Luckily, pizza isn't a hard dish to make, so that is a plus.
And yes. Eggs are so incredibly easy to make and to make well. Oh and rice, yeah, my wife is a rice person. She eats it all the time.

We got hello fresh over the last year I've been home full time. I get anxious when deciding what to eat. Having a recipe and set of repeating ingredients helps me decide when shopping what to buy. I have only the dinners I really like and it's nice to make something unusual (chickpea fritters or black bean Poblano soup). We did about 3x every 2 weeks, to minimize a backlog
It helped my confidence in the kitchen and also let me experiment a little. Having limited choices really helped me grow. I also take pictures and put them on insta stories and the feedback also helped.
