Kathy, I hope your sister took the cooking chores away from her husband until and unless he received some training!

Spud, everything you put your mind to, you become proficient. Cooking is the same way. With the internet as your guide, you can become a Master Chef in no time. I know you wouldn't be as dumb as those others, even if you were not attentive to details. 

My procedure is the usual one, decide what the protein will be, then build the carbohydrates and fresh fruits and vegetables around that. For example, if you are going to get your protein from beans, what tastes good with beans? 

Rice is a good choice because beans and rice form a complete protein that beans or rice cannot provide when served alone. 

Decide the sauce you want to go with beans and rice. Italian? Mexican? Asian? African? Spanish?  

Next, think of what texture or taste goes well with beans, rice, and the sauce. I enjoy a crisp salad with cucumbers, celery, or something that snaps when I take a bite.

If Italian sauce, a nice lettuce salad is nice.

If Mexican, a Mexican cabbage salad tastes good, especially if I use a vinegar dressing.

If Asian, Asian radish salad tastes and feels good to the tongue.

If African, African Mango and cucumber salad refreshes. 

I guess you can deduce my method of building a menu. Sometimes the combinations don't taste the way you want them to; just experiment with different flavors, textures, mouth feels, and aesthetic appeal.  

Bon Appetit!

The trick is to taste as you go along.

I've never been a good cook, but not as dumb as those two guys.

Wow, Kathy, a grease fire could have been a major tragedy!  Did he learn to cook or just give up after that?

Joan, shortly after my sister married her husband decided to fix her breakfast. She woke to the smoke in the house. When she asked her husband what was going on his answer was he was waiting for the grease to boil before he fried the eggs :)

Would that be 64 pound balls Michael?

To me Super Bowl Sunday would be when you are bowling with friends in a game where you have to use extra large balls. Most likely I would choose watching a movie instead.

What's a Super Bowl?  

My large bowls are used for separating popcorn from the unpopped  kernels.

Daniel, that's pretty much the recipe--or variation thereof--I use for my noodle casseroles. I add a lot of sharp cheddar cheese.

So, are any of you "foodies" cooking up something special for the Super Bowl tonight?
