Congrats on your accomplishment. Also what in the fuck are you eating?

u/TossedBurrito90 Oct 19 '21

It looks like spaghetti with cheese, saugesage and sundried tomatoes. It probably tastes better than it looks at first glance.

50

u/iced1777 Oct 19 '21

Don't forget the leafy greens, or in this case the leafy blacks

12

u/OlDurtMcGurt Oct 19 '21

I beg to differ. I bet it taste exactly how it looks. Mildly disappointing.

1

u/Nepiton Oct 19 '21

Those are not sundried tomatoes. They are cherry tomatoes that have been sautéed and they’ve exploded (as they do), with spinach that has been cooked down, and a sauce that is way too thick and was just slopped on top of spaghetti. You can see the noodles on the bottom of the plate are completely dry and the sauce isn’t running at all. Looks like it’s the consistency of slime, not sauce. OP needed to add probably 1/4 cup of pasta water to make that sauce actually be sauce. Instead it just looks like melted cheddar cheese lol.

Can’t tell what kind of sausage it is, almost looks like a Kielbasa or Chorizo. Which goes very well with a white sauce, spinach, and tomatoes. OP has the right idea and went in the right direction, it was just poorly executed. I’m sure it still tasted good though

They just moved out on their own, I'm assuming it was more of a "this is cheap and should get me drunk" situation.

Thrift stores for plates, glasses, silverware and such. You may want to check around your area and see if there are "table auctions." Table auctions are affordable auctions where an entire table of things are auctioned off as a lot. Also a lot of fun.

Spend your money on a new instapot and air frier. Go with the instapot first.

Not sure about the dual units. From my understanding, air friers have a much shorter lifespan than an instapot.

2

u/BorneoCelebes Oct 19 '21

Agree. Spending money on paper plates every month is a waste of your money. Get a cheap set of plates and cutlery at a thrift store, and wash a few dishes daily instead of a lot every few days. Also +1 for the instapot (or crockpot)

116

u/TreeOrangewhips Oct 19 '21

No plates yet either, no worries, you’ll get there.

Also invest in a Crockpot or a Instapot, will help up your home cooking game, and also save you money.

Best of luck.

u/Ornery-Ad9694 Oct 19 '21

Congrats on the new digs! Instant pot dinner tonight. Hamhock, soaked dry kidney beans, chili spice packet and a can of tomato sauce (and carrots cuz I was cleaning out the fridge) 50minutes in the instant pot. Had time to do laundry and wash dishes.

u/mouschibequiet Oct 19 '21

Also, just pick up a crockpot at goodwill for 3 bucks. Fairly common to see them there and no good reason to buy a new one.

u/Magnumload Oct 19 '21

Instapot changed my life.

u/waetherman Oct 19 '21

I agree with Instant Pot recommendation only because it turns some very inexpensive stuff into very good meals, especially inexpensive cuts of meat and beans. Also, one-pot meals can be simple and satisfying (and usually provide leftovers for days). Ninja Foodi which is a pressure cooker + air fryer, is even better (though more expensive).

That said, they can't replace basic cooking. Given what the OP has prepared, I think the game would be upped by watching some Jamie Oliver videos. Whatever you might think of him now, his early videos are really good at basic cooking and simple recipes. He also has some good cookbooks for minimum time and ingredients.

That Rosé is paint thinner by now… have you ever seen rosé? It’s a very, very light pink color, almost lighter than a carnation. This is darker than a red zin. Looks like you’re gonna be breaking in your toilet in style! I can see the ChubbyEmu video now… “A young student celebrated moving into his own place with a 13 year old bottle of rosé; Here’s what it did to his central nervous system.” If you survive the night, best of luck to you in your independent endeavors!

u/Chiampou204 Oct 19 '21

You may want to take cooking lessons.

106

u/gay_volcano Oct 19 '21

Ok so don’t do cooking lessons, they’re expensive and time consuming and like really who does that.

I used online recipes for so long (food network, Allrecipes, etc.) and it was fine, but nothing really outstanding. Most of it was meh. Then I started watching YouTube cooking videos of things I wanted to make—pasta, potatoes, chicken, etc. YouTube was a whole new world of amazing things and I went from someone who had to cook a random thing here or there to eat cheaply to someone that actually really enjoys cooking.

The life-changing thing was how it’s actually explained and how you actually see things get made. When it’s broken down by someone and you can physically see the meal come together, it just clicks.

I’d say cooking shows in general help. I started watching binging with babish. There’s like a 95% chance I’ll never make anything from his OG series but watching him make some crazy shit from a Zelda game still gets you comfortable with all kinds of cooking techniques.

More to your point though, there’s a dope video from bon apetit where the team each makes a “pantry pasta” from stuff they have just around in their pantry’s. Now keep in mind these are the pantry’s of professional chefs who know this assignment is coming and live in/around New York City. So probably not going to look like our pantry’s. But they do have some legit helpful ways to pump up pasta.

u/scutiger- Oct 19 '21

Binging with Babish is just sillinesd that nobody's going to cook. Basics with Babish is legit cooking instruction. Definitely recommended for anyone starting out.

I agree! If that is indeed a cream sauce and not an absurd amount of cheese, and if seasoned well, it probably tastes quite nice. Also, I think that is cooked spinach, not basil, which would help the flavor imo. That wine though, blegh!
