    I'll probably just microwave the leftovers of Aubergine chilli from the other day. Christmas Day mega-cooking is absolutely zero fun or reward when you're the only one that's going to be eating it.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    I just tried and failed to make a green curry paste from scratch. Went fine up to a point but I gave up after 30 minutes trying to grind it smooth in a pestle and mortar. Off back to the shop in a minute to buy a ready made one (a proper thai one fwiw). My hands are orange from turmeric root.

    There's one myself and the girlfriend make that's really tasty and fairly easy. Use a food processor though so maybe that's a big no no, I think it may be Jamie Oliver derived too, given 90% of her recipes are.

    I would have used a food processor but my one is tiny and shit. It requires quite a wet mixture in order to properly blend it into a paste. I had the same trouble with a red curry paste a little while ago and I am apparently too stupid to learn from my mistakes :)

    We actually bought the food processor we currently have just for these kind of dishes :D

    Homemade Tandoori Chicken. I didn't use the red food dye though so it doesn't look like what I'm used to. Hopefully it will taste authentic though.

    Fuck me that pork was lovely, even if I do have enough for about 4 people. Tomorrow and Monday's dinner I think!

    Fuck, you people must all be well off. I'm a student and eat £1 frozen Iceland meals as standard.

    Well learn to budget better and not spend it on wild nights out Mr Whiny Student. :p

    I, on the other hand, am having (Scottish) Square Sausage with Broccoli, Potatoes, Carrots, Fine Beans and Brussels Sprouts.

    We have jobs if that's what you mean. Although, even when I was a poor student I didn't eat that shite. Learn to cook.

    Fuck off, ingredients end up costing way more than a ready meal.

    Well i do not know what they teach in schools these days, but this is where you learn to budget. There are plenty of ways you can buy fresh food on a budget. Maybe if you lay off the ready meals, you'd be a little less abusive in the future!

    Food and nutritional education seems to be particularly poor both here in Ireland and in the UK.

    The fact that someone would eat the kind of crap that's in a ready meal from Iceland is just appalling. Aside from which I'd imagine it tastes like absolute arse. Not that I've ever eaten that shite. Parents have a duty to teach their children that this shit is nutritionally redundant. You'd be better off eating two apples.

    I'm actually not a chav ta, but thanks for the snobbery.
    I eat 5 fruit and veg a day (a lot of frozen veg, as that's cheaper, but still has the nutrients preserved in many cases better than fresh veg which have been lying on the shelf).
    I just have the frozen meals as my main meal at dinner time along with veg, etc, as cuts of meat are expensive. I get my wholegrains from supermarket brand cereal, and brown bread which i freeze to make it go further.

    Also i don't see how i was being abusive, my original comment was directed at no one in particular, and i'm not the one calling people stupid, chavvy and dumbarses.

    Ready meals have less meat in than you would get from paying the equivalent in ready meals, it's also the shittiest quality possible, loaded with salt and fat.

    Good that you have some veg though. At least scurvy won't be a problem.

    There was a book I read at uni - grub on a grant - had some good ideas in it for cheap meals. Although I did spend a while eating Tesco value baked beans and sausages from a tin with toast Lol.

    I lived in halls for all of my uni time and the communal kitchen was pretty foul so apart from the odd pasta or bacon sandwich cookup I rarely used it in anger.
  • Deleted user 6 January 2013 14:42:43
    Btw, you can make a batch of curry or spag bol, freeze it and just reheat it. It works out far cheaper than ready meals and better for you.

    If it doesn't stop pissing on the carpet I'll probably be eating miniature Yorkshire Terrier shortly.

    There are two Guinea Pigs downstairs who are only one good recipe and a sleepover at a friend's house away from being a meal.

    Well she's a muppet then. So easy to make, so frigging tasty.

    I want to make some stovies as well. I think baking my own rowies is beyond my skills though ;_;
