Help Me, Mom!
  • I'm at university in the UK at the moment, I recommend to learn to make a stir fry.

    1. Buy a wok
    2. Cut everything up before you start
    3. Put in meat, fry, put in veg with the meat, fry, put in sauce, fry a little.
    4. Eat.

    Depending on the veg/meat/sauce combos you can make Chinese, Thai, even Mexican if you buy the right spices. And really it's just one skill that you're using on different stuff. You can buy pre-made sauces everywhere and there are a bunch of flavours, or you can just add soy sauce or sweet chilli cooking sauces. Or those premade spice mixes are pretty cheap and you don't have to use it all in one go.
    The key is, once you've made a bunch you can save whatever you don't eat in the fridge for tomorrow (just microwave it) AND you can even freeze it, if you wanna think long term.

    I'm out of college and living with my Dad. we have a deal, on days he works, I cook dinner, otherwise he cooks dinner. I can make up some pretty delicious stuff, I just need focused motivation.

    If you ever come to Andalucia (Spain), you are invited to tapas by me, a total follower of your webcomic skills

    • I'm gonna take you up on that if I ever do end up in Spain!

    Penne with vodka? No, no, you have to use Italian liquor with pasta.

  • here's a tip, if you ever have nothing left but potatoes and milk.. chop those potatoes up and simmer em on the lowest possible temperature in milk! and then.. slowly.. you get delicious chowder.
    That's all you need! I mean spices help.

  • A Cat

    Potatoes. That is all

    I can cook, though I prefer baking (cookies, brownies, etc. 😀 ). I tend to put a lot more effort into food, though, when I'm making it for someone else. When I'm just cooking for me, I tend to be pretty lazy. As in, take-a-can-of-veggies-and-microwave-it lazy.

    Here's me: take some random food items and microwave them with cheese.

    Google is your friend. You can find recipes to help you make things all over the internet, and videos on youtube if you need to see someone do it to figure it out. If you don't know exactly how to do something like sauté, you can google it and get info and videos. I'm a mediocre cook, but I can make food that's okay with a recipe pretty easily. However, from my experience food I've made myself never tastes as good as food made by other people, even if it's the exact same thing. XD I think it's just psychological.

    • Jeremy

      I'm so with you on this!

  • This is like the opposite of the comic "Help Your Mother"! (hint hint panel 2)
