Thread: Shocking confession (about food)
March 31st, 2013 01:58 PM #36
God f****** damnit. I started this thread for recommendations on baby cookbooks. There are several on amazon and I don't want to buy a shitty one. I know the rudiments of cookery. I am in my mid 30s and still alive, and having lived in several remote villages on multiple continents I know how to cook using an open fire and a battered pot, not to mention a fully-equipped western kitchen. I will stop being self-deprecating, claim of course the fundamental life skills necessary for survival, and say I don't cook out of choice and convenience, not incompetence and cluelessness. I want a cookbook for ideas and proven successful kid-friendly meals for a young toddler, not because Mac n'cheese and the like never occurred to me.
@ottilie thank you, as always, for your kindness.
@flick if you actually stand behind what you wrote to me & ottilie you are a ridiculous human being. Have you honestly never taken a vacation where you ordered a drink on a beach, or ordered takeout? (silver platter optional). That's not an unimaginable luxury, nor does it sound like a daily feature of ottilie's life in southwest London. In a modern economy a great dal of jobs exist to provide services for other people, from preparing food to washing cars to dyeing hair to wiping asses in a nursing home. The vast majority of anybody who frequents an Internet forum (implying ownership of a computer and a monthly cable/Internet bill) is middle class or even above. It's already a select crowd, yourself included.Blade, MD

Ok first off I do apologize for the name calling that was out of line.. I am sure that your job is extremely difficult and balancing life with a toddler can't be easy either.. I do not use bad Grammer I am on my phone and it auto corrects me. Now you are the one being insulting and very rude... Take a class.. All I am saying is that a woman who is a mother usually picks up a few cooking skills by the time she is a mom.... Toddlers are not hard to feed!!!!------get ready here is my constructive advice-- if you can't cook feed him fresh stuff and order plain chicken... But some canned fruit and veggies.. Or frozen... Or just wait I am sure he will develop a taste for sushi or Korean barbecue or Indian food... Happy Easter

Yes, I am so ridiculous that I don't realize any of this stuff - point is that that is how you present yourself.
Also, if you KNOW how to cook then you probably should have said so, that's what got me - not knowing how to basically heat food to temperature in order to consume it seemed pretty unbelievable, especially for someone who managed to get through medical school. T\

And I agree with the rest of that quote as well. I don't feel like I'm generally mean, pretentious and snobbish around here, and if I am I'm sorry about that. And I don't live in a bubble. But this is Blade's thread about cooking, not about me being horrible, so if you (or anyone else) think I am tell me somewhere else, don't take it out here.[FONT=Palatino Linotype][CENTER]My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014[/CENTER][/FONT]

I read through those blogs I suggested again and now realize that they might not be very helpful for cooking for a toddler - I'm sorry and hope I didn't waste your time! It's been a while since I really looked them over. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
