Teaching people cook might not work. Since learning to cook I eat twice as much because eating is great but now I am fat.

When I quit smoking and got my sense of taste back I quickly realised my wife can’t cook for arse and my hot sauce budget quadrupled as a method of helping disguise the taste.

Hot sauce is the magic that makes almost anything taste nice. It's a saviour.

Current favorite - glorious stuff but at $5 for a 5oz bottle I’m very glad I don’t have any Tory MPs to condemn me and decry me as a modern day Viv Nicholson.

You'd think that such a smart, penny-pincher like Jack Monroe would realise that the cost of a fucking oven or griddle pan or a brand new blender is actually split up across literally thousands of meals. Or perhaps she's just fishing for social media approval - who knows! 

The price of food in the UK is in fact significantly cheaper across the board than just about any other country. The rent is the elephant in the room here but I don't see her standing on a 'guillotine all landlords' platform.

It's a wee shame when liberals' attachment to rentiers and their sacred property rights ends up fucking them over a barrel, and so here we are.

It would help if you would read

I specifically said that we  could all improve our food management and household economics. In my case my wife is in charge of he cooking department but I do notice t he amount of meals which can be made out of the one item e.g. a ham makes soup, can be taken hot one day with potatoes, etc, and then as a cold salad another. Likewise a piece of cheap brisket can make soup, be taken with veg. and leftovers can be made in to stories.

There is scope for everyone to improve and to deny that is ridiculous.

I tried. Anyway, have you taken the shopping decisions away from your wasteful wife?

Wonderful stories. Fantastical stories. Unbridled fetterment of the imagination. Escapism. Fiction. Abandonment of mundane reality.

That reads like a lovely sauce. I tried making my own a while back, nice but not great. I have to try again.

Whilst what you said is true, do the poor just not eat for a week or two so they can buy a new griddle pan?

I genuinely don’t know if food is cheaper in the Uk. However, have other countries not protected their inhabitants from the high electric prices which is currently crippling so many people here?

The pickle juice gives it a really nice sourness alongside the heat. That's the second hot sauce I've had with it in, and it works majestically; if I ever get round to making my own it'll definitely be an ingredient.

You don't actually need a griddle pan to cook 99.9% of all possible meals though.

She's just laying it on thick as usual about completely superfluous expenses, while not dealing seriously with only relevant reason why she's struggling to make ends meet.

I'll keep that in mind.

It's not a sauce but what I make a lot of is blitzing together coriander (leaves & stalks), green chillis, garlic, spring onions, oil and vinegar. Easy to do and I eat it on toast or with an egg or cheese or anything.

Going to make a proper sauce though.  I am dreaming up ingredients.

Oh that sounds ace. Like a chili tapenade, almost.

I guess it’s easy for you comment on it as assuming you have never been in that position

According to this, electricity in the UK is amongst the most expensive in Europe, but gas is amongst the cheapest.

It's therefore an isssue, but probably not the main driver. Rent, which for people in this position will be their single largest cost, is starting to shoot up again as well. 

Food in the UK is comparatively cheap compared with Western Europe. There is no VAT on basic foodstuffs, whereas most countries subject it to their reduced rate. But there must be more to it than that as that should only make a negligible difference.

Your point was to defend the tory shitheel, and his point was that folk are lazy wasters and can't be trusted.

The idea that you have your finger on the pulse enough to know this is correct is insulting to everyone's intelligence tbh.

Your point, like the horrible c**t tory you leapt in to defend, boils down to "poor people should be less thick and lazy, then they wouldn't be poor"


You are a horrible, nasty, vindictive person.

I am ashamed that you support the same football club as me.

Hope you get to airing your views in the stadium one day and get hunted.

Happy to air my views anywhere as long as people  listen to what I’m saying and don’t fly off the handle as you always seem to do without thinking through the points made.

 

Why is it that well - off people are always vilified when the poor are always glorified?

Makes no sense.

We all are capable of improvement and, if you had bothered to read my post, you might have understood that point.

Have a nice evening.

I doubt that will last after Norway start diverting our supply to Germany to make up for cutting off Russia.

I've maybe too much time on my hands but been thinking how would you eat, cold meat with mayo.
Do you spread the mayo on the cold meat and roll it up.
Roll it up and dip into the mayo,
Or just fire mayo all over it and eat it with a knife and fork emoji848.png

A splodge of mayo on the plate and then roll the meat and dip it.

I like it.

And I'm not a fat b*****d who has to bend over to see his cock so it's clearly working for me.

It's a bit of cold meat and mayo. I can't believe I'm being criticised by crisp and coke guzzlers. 😆

Some people on here seem to think I'm chomping down on dog shite for my lunch. What is going on? 😂
