    I have never met anyone who cannot cook, either male or female. How is it possible?

    I belong to another forum that requires you have read the previous 15 pages before posting in a thread. If you post a question about something that was already brought up in those pages you can be 'warned' which leads to banning. (They have overly strict rules about a lot of things though.)

    I guess it depends on what you consider 'can cook'. I 'can cook', if you want to eat something really simple like spaghetti. I can generally follow recipes for things I haven't made before. But I find zero enjoyment in it, and I have no ability to create outside a recipe because of my limited understanding of ingredients and their interactions.

    Also, I refuse to handle raw meat.

    On the other hand, my husband can cook. He really loves doing it- he can look at a fridge of ingredients and just -make- something. He has baked enough bread that he can make variations without using a recipe. He can select spices that go well together to make a new rub for a meat without being told what will taste good together, he knows how to butcher meat to get the best cuts. I can't do any of that.

    I *can* cook. I just choose not to.

    Really? I remember my first year at University and finding most people couldn't cook and everyone learning together (my mother had shown me 3 or 4 things and besides that i had no clue).

But, as breakfast club (and now we know she's alive, that's good) pointed out, I was in a hotel and rink and a few restaurants so I wasn't buying and cooking my own food. Living on hotel/restaurant food can get old and restricted anywhere.

    In Israel, I spent Shabbat with an old friend who lives way up north in a small city tourists don't visit. She cooked dinner for me and it was just luscious -- partially because it was just a home-cooked meal.

    And my ex-husband has not cooked himself a meal since we split almost five years ago. He lives on sandwiches and takeout lasagna from the nearby Italian deli. I'm surprised he is still alive but he stubbornly refuses to learn to cook.

    I don't think I live in the USA. My grandmother cooked, my mother cooks, and I cook. My kids have Home Economics in school. AND, I teach them how to cook. I have SIDEWALKS in my town. And my very own garden..with fruit trees even! What is this place I call home?

    Well, are your ingredients and food processed? Have you ever tasted what chicken really tastes like? Have you ever had a "real" banana? Have you ever eaten un sandwich au fromage from a regular corner store that was simply incredible and no similar place in New York City can match? If the answer to to these questions are no, then you're still in the U.S.

    I'm sticking to my story. That banana in Mexico was NOTHING like any banana I've ever had here in the United States.

    The best fruit I have ever had in my life was blood oranges in Italy. Served with vanilla ice cream. I still when I think of that dessert 13 years ago.

    Since then, I've bought blood oranges, blood orange marmalade and blood orange olive oil in the U.S. And none of them come close to what I had in Italy. So yeah, either I was suffering from Honeymoon In Italy Delusion or produce really tastes different in different places.

    You know someone probably told Leonova that she is currently the "hot topic" on FSU and she is probably beaming with pride. Any publicity is good publicity! I'm still relevant, yay!

    Sure it does. And I'm sure the US has the best tasting produce-of-some-type in the world! Although it is probably iceberg lettuce or something.

    Bacon avocados in Southern Cal (grown in Carpenteria) are the best avos I've ever had anywhere. The best bananas I ever had were in St. John U.S.V.I., which, btw, is part of the United States

    Wait. There are BACON avocados? Do they taste like bacon? Or avocados?

    Haven't we already established that the Jersey Tomato is the food of the Gods and not to be replicated elsewhere.

    I rather like this idea. Just think of all the people I could ban.

    Not so! Every couple of pages, someone jumps in to tell us (AGAIN!) that they don't understand why it's such a big deal that Leonova doesn't like the food, that she doesn't have a car and doesn't speak the language well and misses her boyfriend, that she has probably been eating rink food, that she probably doesn't cook and it's hard to eat well in the US if you don't cook and spend every moment of your spare time and all your money seeking the elusive FRESH! and organic food, AND that it's just darn refreshing to read something a skater says that isn't all fake and PC, by which people apparently mean that negative feelings are honest and positive ones are LIES!

    That is all we grow here, so what else could it be?

    We grow some nice pigs here in Iowa. Oh, pork isn't produce, never mind.
    Our corn is also quite delicious.

    It is according to a couple of "vegetarians" I know.

    My problem with American conception of "a meal": 1. A salad is in no circumstance a "meal". 2. A sandwich is in no circumstance a "meal". 3. Spaghetti with some readymade tomato sauce is in no circumstance a "meal" and cooking that is in no circumstance "cooking". 4. Anything frozen for more than three days should not be for human consumption, period.

    Speaking of, I quite used to like American diners because of endless nasty coffee refills, and I would always order either breakfast or a liver dish. It's the only thing that isn't as bland as Leonova's skating. I'm not even as much as a big food person as my country people (the only thing we Chinese really care about is food). Even I find American food dehumanizing beyond belief. One of my American ex-boyfriends used to eat cereal all day for breakfast lunch and dinner. I personally don't like cooking at all, and now that I don't live in the U.S. anymore, I don't, but there was a period I went to overpriced Chinese supermarkets way more often than I want to.

    Anyway...at least I did mention the word Leonova once.
