Another food crime is when you let Ice Cream melt entirely through to negligence (ie getting back from the supermarket and forgetting to freezer it up) then re-freezing it, resulting in a mass of disgusting ice-crystals which, when served, results in a minging pseudo-sorbet thing.

this, fish should always be accompanied by a white wine. Or chips.

My mum is always too "tired" (lazy) when she's done the shopping to unpack the bags straight away. She ALWAYS leaves them and as a result my mini milks melt and re-freeze into some demented, stuck-to-the-wrapper, icey lack-luster stick of disappointment.

A food crime witnessed at my cousin's birthday party today - Mum had a delicious piece of birthday cake. And pulled off, then discarded, all the white icing. She then later proceeded to have a bit of the chocolate traybake and picked off all the dolly mixtures, and discard them too!

AARGH!
:eek4::eek2::eek3::eek::eek4::eek2::eek3::eek::eek4::eek2::eek3::eek: That IS a crime!!!!!

Today at Jimmy Chungs Chinese Buffet (yes, I had been craving and decided we'd go for my Birthday lunch early having taunted myself by creating that other buffet thread... heheh) my irritating younger cousin made me grit my teeth with anger as he'd moaned to come, but committed the ultimate Chungs Buffet Foodie Crime: He sat and ate Chicken Maryland and Chips. And nothing else. We paid full price for him to come as he had no money on him. Breaded plain chicken and chips.

ARGH!

Ha. One of my old flatmates had a farmer friend from college who came to visit. We went out for a few pints and an Indian meal and he had omelette and chips and kept harping on about the 'massive round crisps' that they served for starters...

It was like dining with one of the Beverly hillbillies.

Soggy oven chips..never again!

I'm not a fussy eater whatsoever, I just don't like meat. I can understand why other people like it but I just can't bear it! Usually on Sundays I just have a plate of vegetables for tea whilst my family tuck into their meat, haha (:

Food Crime: My sister made a home-made shepherd's pie today.

I was slavering at the thought of it.

DINNER TIME!!

Wh.... What?


Why... what's different about this? Oh, yeah. HOME MADE Shepherd's Pie... plus my lazy sister... equals SMASH TOPPING.

That's right. Mince with SMASH on top. URGH

I bought my (relatively uncultured) sister some really nice tuna steaks on Friday as her fiance had been on about never trying "proper tuna", and so I got her them and told her to "just sear it" on each side, and keep the inside nice and purpled. She sent me a picture asking if it was cooked enough at about 5ish last night.



.....

*speechless*

....

I think that kind of epitomises food crime right there.
To each his own I guess.

For me a food crime is having meat rare. If it is still red, no way, even too dark a pink. Bleuurgh.

Take it from me, as someone who has had food poisoning and parasites, always cook your meat properly.

Now, I ask for it cremated.

There's nothing unsafe about having certain cuts of meat rare. You can eat steaks raw if you want. Mince and similar types of meat should be cooked thoroughly, but steaks are fine.

Why don't you unpack the bags for your Mum then? Since you know, she bought the food. Just a suggestion.

That makes me heave. As in I scrolled down and literally just heaved at the sight of the meat.
I love beef, I love lamb, I love duck etc etc, but if it's remotely red it makes me feel sick. It's not the thought of the blood or anything, it's that wet slimey texture the undercooked bits have. I honestly like the taste and texture of well cooked meat, I think it tastes lovely, whereas raw/medium etc is just horrible to my tastebuds.

This. Some people like it different.

I like to chew my meat a lot. That is another reason I like it well done, I hate mushy/slimy food.

Whenever a chef says meat will "melt in your mouth" I turn a little green, I have to admit.

But the only time meat is at all slimy is if it's very, very rare. :confused: Anything other than that doesn't have that texture - it's just like a normal cooked meat texture but even more juicy.
