On Love and Nostagia for the Cheaper Stuff

@Chris H. Honestly, adding stuff is the only way to make KD really taste good (other than nostalgia). Tuna would work just fine. (I remember a Hamburger Helper recipe with a can of tuna that I made for kids I was babysitting and it was actually pretty good!)

On Love and Nostagia for the Cheaper Stuff

@Katni Interesting - I think you could be even lazier though and crack the egg (maybe run it under some warm tap water if it's very cold) right into the hot soup. Stir gently (large curds), vigorously (fine wisps) or barely at all (poached egg with runny yolk)

On Jimmy John's Non-Compete Agreement Bans Employees From Working at Restaurants that Serve Sandwiches

@annev17 Rosalyn not enforceable in the places I know. In fact for those to be legal where I am they need to be specific and offer compensation. That didn't stop an employer from suing me for quitting even after I refused to sign the noon compete.

On How to Make Meatless Monday Your Favorite Day of the Week

...top with steak. /joke couldn't help myself As a dedicated omnivore, I love veg and grains but meat enhances them and vice versa. But I do appreciate the logic and conscientiousness that goes into choosing a vegan lifestyle.

On Why I Had Kids

To take care of you when you get old! To pay into social security! :) Logically, other than that, there's not much else in favor of having kids. But on an emotional fulfillment level - there's no substitute (or so I'm told... I vaguely want a dog, but will wait for retirement).

On Things I Would Do Around The House If There Were Wages For Housework

Oh god, there's at least 2 covered pots in the fridge that I'm scared of. One of them has lobster stock in it... I can't throw away that pot, it's a beautiful clad pan. I'm waiting for a dark rainy night to throw it down a storm drain.

On It's Utilities, Not Me-tilities

I recently scored the BEST deal on internet... In Canada, there are 2 major providers, Bell and Rogers, and they'll both screw you over on price. But due to regulation, they're required to resell to smaller providers. Most people don't bother, but if you do bother, you can get great service for about $50 bucks per month, or questionable service (which I opted for) - which is running me $30/month for unlimited 28Mbps down/10Mbps up.
