Single Dudes

So recently I was turned into a happy man and well to be honest I can cook a limited amount of food and it gets boring after awhile. So, In order to keep myself from eating fast food for every meal, as much as I would love it, I would rather not stay single for the next 50 years and have all the heart problems that would bring lol. So yea, I already did a google search, most of it seemed to be targeted towards single women though. So help me out people, I want to learn and I am willing to try some new things.

Any allergies?

Knew I should have put this in here.

I really do not dislike anything. I mean loads of things like onions and I am not gonna enjoy it. I can't really think of a place I will refuse to eat at because I do not like the type of food.

I have a stove/oven/grill/nuke box/steam thing for rice.....if I do not have something, assuming the price is right I will pick one up.

And no allergies that I know of.

Spaghetti is something thats pretty easy to do, inexpensive, and leftovers you can eat for a few days. What I do is get a pound of ground beef, pound of dry spaghetti noodles, and a 16 oz jar of pasta sauce. Brown the ground beef in a frying pan or a cast iron skillet is what I use. Then add the sauce once you have browned the beef. You can add in spices and pepper/salt to season to your liking. Boil the spaghetti noodles in a pot of water. Throw some salt in before you put the noodles in. Ones the noodles are done, add them to the sauce, mix it up, and your good to go.

Fish is really easy (butter and some seasoning on a skillet, salmon is wonderful with potlatch seasoning), couscous goes well with fish, make sure when you buy salad its not iceberg lettuce, keep lots of fresh fruit for morning and veggies for cooking. Quick cook steel cut oatmeal is a welcome reprieve from cereal, I also usually keep some scones on hand to replace toast with my coffee in the morning every once in a while.

I like to cook a lot (baking takes too long) and I keep a lot of different sauces on hand to keep things ... fresh. Chicken is amazingly easy to slice, mix with some random veggies, cook in oil (I use sesame oil a lot, isn't as bad as veggie oil and it has a higher burning point than olive oil) and throw on rice. Edit-be sure to cook the chicken in oil first, then add the veggies and the sauce last. Veggies cook pretty fast, so you'll have to work on the timing a few times, but once you get it it's not tough.

I don't do a lot of beef because my family has high cholesterol.

And as usual the staple in a pinch (other than pasta) is soup. I spend the little extra to get the chunky stuff, its worth it to me. Oh, and bread goes with everything, switch it up from time to time with rye or sourdough or rasin or challah or whatever you want to try.

I guess my best advice is go to the grocery store and try new ****. Only way to find stuff that's fast, easy and tastes good. The side dishes are what keeps things interesting.

And as always, a well-complimenting brew makes any meal taste better. My favorites for winter are stouts, although when I'm feeling rich I'll indulge in a trippel.

Get a meat thermometer. I have one and love it.

You can cook anything to the right doneness with it at your disposal.

If you are looking to stay in shape eat lots of lean meat, vegetables and whole grain carbs.

So that lets you cook up things like Chicken, Fish, squash, peas, corn, broccoli, string beans, spinach, whole grain pasta, rice, spaghetti.

If you want to enjoy life go out and grill a nice burger or steak.

There is so much you can do with food its ridiculous. The meats can be pan seared or grilled. Veggies can be raw, boiled, steamed sauteed. Figure out what you like.

"100% low carb" does not mean anything.

But basically, making "somewhat low carb spaghetti" just means making less spaghetti.

whatever dude

spaghetti is made from beans and peas? I never knew this... I always thought it was produced from grains...

What is the difference between recipes targeted at single men and single women?

This isn't real chicken Parmesan. Real chicken Parmesan is as follows- Coat in flour, dip in egg wash, dip in bread crumbs, fry the chicken, finish in the oven. Few minutes befor it's over, top it with tomato sauce, followed by fresh mozzarella, top with Parmesan cheese.

Cooking isn't difficult, I would help you more but you're being a little ****. Also, you don't prove enough information.

Also- You guys who claim spaghetti is a legume, haven't you guys seen the a newly sprouting spaghetti pod?

buncha idiots in this thread.

instead of making "low-carb" spaghetti as you would call it, just buy the barilla whole grain.
