You are either provoking me into a cooking thread or you should make one.



Cauliflower every night! And turnips!


Add some potatoes, cream and butter and you are slaying it!!
I used to do a shepards pie with that same school of thought.

Not trying to adult, I'm just sayin??

Hit the food forum, I'd love to hear more about that.

That's a hard one for me to answer. Child of the 70's , many years on a farm growing up, I can cook, clean, do laundry. Pay my bills and manage a bank account. I do plumbing, electrical,mechanical and computer work as required by my job. Fix most of my appliances.

I guess getting my ass kicked out of the house when I turned 18 made me to become super independent.

Oh, wait , I came up with one !

I don't know how to douche properly.




Just close your eyes and squeeze hard.

Whatever it hits will be clean and smell like country flowers.

It would sadly disappoint. We eat it raw.



Occasionally we cook it, but there are very, very few veggies I've met that I don't love cooked or raw. So most week nights, we have just a simple bucket of cut raw veggies on the table that you grab what you want from them. As a kid, cauliflower was expensive so we only got to have it at holidays. As an adult, I can afford it. It's good for me, and I love it. So it's on my table every night of the week if I want.

We do usually have some kind of dip available for those who need it, but for me, just the cauliflower itself was enough.

Hi JagS.
Get any requests, to deepen the definition, or meaning of 'adulting' yet ?

Any questions about what these 'expectations' are, or what the 'rule-set', is ?
From whence they entered our societies ?

Oh ! Me ?
Just figured-out a couple of months ago, that when putting a pullover type of shirt on: the tags are always on the left side !
You know: when looking from the sausage side.
Ha ! After all of those years of putting-on t-shirts bass-ackwards !
Silly old Nothin !

PS: Bet ya didn't know that t-shirts had a sausage side, eh ? LoL !

When I think of adulting I generally think of what should a person have knowledge of when they leave high school and reach the age of 18. We aren't taking professional level, we are talking general starting knowledge.

Things like basic cooking
basic auto maintenance
basic sewing
basic home & garden
basic survival
basic cleaning & much more etc....

What I am surprised to see are things that adults aged 20++++ were not capable of, or never learned how to do thing
that I would assume most middle school aged kids should know.

Young adults can neither read nor write in cursive. They get a birthday card from Grandma with a note and someone has to read it to them.


Well to be totally fair to the youth of our country.....Cursive sucks.


But not knowing it is a form of illiteracy.

Do you think it might, in general, be related to where kids grow-up ?
Not only parenting, but also just the outside environment ?

Folks can live in this city, without going outside.

Many things some children/adults never learn: balancing a budget; emotional intelligence; caring and loving; food-prep;
active listening; critical-thinking; etc...

We gave-up our communal villages, for what ?

At my age I can safely say that none of the kids today know how to churn butter, replace a wagon wheel, shoe a horse, survive a gun fight with ruffians, or use a spittoon.



Hmmm I know to churn butter, could probably replace a wagon wheel and have used a spittoon for it's actual intended purpose, you've got me on the horse shoeing and gunfighting though.

There are fonts for that. Cursive that is.

Hi JAG

Sometimes I think about things I learned and that are now obsolete.

Un-sticking butterfly valves on a carburetor, anyone?


Cheers

I can't think of anything offhand I didn't already know about or how to do as a kid or teen. At least one of my kids' friends, however, is already screwed in adulthood at 11. I did a thread last summer about that friend's shocking lack of fruit and veg knowledge.

So is not being able to read hieroglyphs or classical Greek. Obsolete is obsolete, deal with it & adapt to printsive.
