Cereal for instance!!!

Or when you open a pack, have a bowl and come back the next day to find

*POOF*

Magic disappearing cereal, and all that remains is the magic dust and a few small pieces of sad looking cereal.
That's not what I meant Dani; I mean, when you've got, say, a big sharing bag of doritos open, and they open up a fresh one, letting TWO go stale.

Or when there's two cartons of milk, one is half-drunk, one is sealed, and they'll open the sealed one. WHYYYY?!

Ah this is one of my biggest pet hates. My mum has a habit of opening a pack of cheese, using it once..putting it in the fridge and forgetting about it. Next time she wants cheese, she'll either open a new pack that's in their or go out and buy new cheese.

I make a conscience effort to stock rotate the fridge putting things she's opened right at the front.

STILL NEVER WORKS.

We (my OH and I) rearranged the cupboard to amke more space, put all my parents stuff on one side, ours on the other, and the most often eaten things at the front... and not a single thing has been touched since!!
Also, is sabotage counted as a food crime? My mum was like, oh we've got some oven chips if you want instead of messing around defrosting chicken?...
Ermm. no. On what planet is a plate of oven chips a decent replacement (taste and health wise) for a home cooked sunday dinner?!

*Dad making the dinner*

*grabs a spoon, digs it into whatever he's making, like soup etc*

*takes a big spoonful, tastes it, licks spoon clean*

*Proceeds to put the spoon back into the soup to stir it*

Oh nice, we're having Potato and Saliva soup, then.

Between this and Cadbury's Heroes (which for some reason has now also dropped the Bourneville but replaced it with NOTHING), this has been one of my most predominant foodie gripes for about the past six months when they first TWIX-FIXED IT.

Note to Mars: TWIX FIXIN' IS NOT "FIXING".

Cadbury's Heroes are dire, bar Fudge and Twirl.

I cannot believe this, I feel so robbed It's all about Quality Street now.

Celebrations, gone downhill. Heroes, downhill.
I'm waiting for the green triangle to be taken from Roses.
That'll tip me over the edge.

I always make the joke that Mars will replace the next-tastiest Celebration (Malteser Teaser) with one of their most foul products next.

My guess?

LEMON LOCKETS.

Celebrations and Heroes were both a joke this year. A cruel, cruel joke. Who doesn't like Crunchie or Bournville? Who on earth doesn't like GALAXY TRUFFLE?

Having a plain naan, or plain rice, with a curry.
No. Boring person.

You should be having a keema naan, unless you're a veggie, in which case - why are you having a curry?
Likewise with rice, even if I'm cooking on my own, I drain the rice, then spice, mix and stick it on the heat for a couple of minutes - Ueber lush. Respect the curry and have a good rice.

and if you have a very dull curry (Tikki Masala, Korma etc.) then shame on you - chef's specials all the way.


Edit:

Is it a crime that I will currify any meat if I'm not sure what to do with it? God I love curry.

Oh, going back through the thread:

What is it?
I'm not sure exactly, I think it's just the juices from the meat.
The lovely "blood" you see in a steak is myoglobin, and adds soooooo much to the flavour. You over-cook the steak then you might as well be eating cardboard.

:confused: Why shouldn't a vegan or vegetarian have a curry? When I am following a vegan diet, I eat curry all the time. Coconut and/or tomato based curries with lots of fresh vegetables are amazing.
