    We had that problem one time at my work. The office freezer was pretty thick with ice, an inch or so all around. Boss was not amused when I soaked and affixed one of the plush Col. Sanders dolls that KFC was giving out at the time upside down, like Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back.

    Home fries, English muffin, home made chili, scramble eggs, avocado, and tomatoes with a touch of green chilies.

    That is a beautiful mental image thank you.

    Was gonna heat up some leftovers but instead turned into a tuna sandwich. Kinda want to just make a tuna melt now.

    "How do you make a tuna melt?"

    "Blowtorch should do the trick."

    I made mojo pork in the crock pot so the house smells amazing.
    Served with coconut rice and broiled onions and peppers.

    The only thing missing is a Spanish guitar player strumming music in the background.
    Although, I would prefer he was in my kitchen, helping me cook.

    I love that about crock pot cooking—it fills the entire house with amazing scents! The problem is I usually cook in it overnight, which can make sleeping pretty difficult. But as soon as I wake up it's time to de-crock the food and give it the first taste. And whatever I cooked becomes breakfast by default.

    I rolled my own crab leg and octopus sushi today. Got the hang of it after the second or third roll, so that's a plus.

    My parents used to make this beef thing in the crock pot overnight and because I sleep like garbage, I'd wake up and the smell of ass would be almost overwhelming. The first time it happened, I thought my dad had used the bathroom near me in an emergency. Then I saw the carnage in the kitchen.

    I made popcorn for lunch and had taco bell for dinner because!!!! I hate my guts.

    You use a bamboo mat? Rice or no rice?

    Yeah, I'm new to it, so I need the help. Rolled with the mat in long rolls, then cut them up. Worked pretty well. Dipped in soy sauce with wasabi mixed in, of course.

    Big meal for a lot of people today. Spicy Indian fish head curry, steamed stripe bass, and pineapple Hawaiian chicken thighs, all over white rice.

    Something that started out as couscous tabbouleh and got a bit out of hand when I discovered things I was missing and extra things I had.

    I am about to embark on a culinary journey of chia seed porridge, an orange, and a slice of buttered bread.

    I live a simple, bougie life.

    I was going to try a recipe from one of my favorite YouTube channels, but I forgot I told my mom I'd have dinner with her tonight, so I'm making veggie sausages, pasta salad, and a ... A salad salad.

    Apparently when I was like 4 or 5 I used to call heads of lettuce "Salad Balls".

    I cooked spaghetti bolognese with extra meat balls for the dog and piles of cheese. Then we both passed out in the bedroom

    Beer-battered onion rings and a mint lamb shank.

    Ha! If the meter was better that would sound quite poetic!

    Fish sticks go with anything.

    Perfect. Two answers on different wavelengths. Beautiful.
