Here's my recipe for the shrimp soup I make.

1 stick of real butter---1/4 lb.
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 quarts shrimp stock
8 oz. whole milk
1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce

The following vegetables cut in a small dice---1/2 inch x 1/2 inch
1 large onion
2 ribs celery
1 bell pepper
1 yellow squash
1 zucchini squash
2 carrots
2 tbsp. fresh ginger grated
3 cloves garlic minced
6 mushrooms sliced thin
About 1 dozen sugar snap peas sliced on the diagonal
2 lbs. fresh shrimp, if large shrimp, cut in half
Optional---6 oz. Vermicelli My wife likes it in her soup but it's ok not to use it.

In a large enough sauce pan, melt butter, add the flour and make a blond roux. Then add the shrimp stock and milk to the roux and bring to a low boil. Now add all the vegetables and other ingredients and let this cook until the vegetables are fork tender. Add the shrimp and cook just until they are done---don't overcook the shrimp. If you decide to add the Vermicelli, do so after you turn off the fire and they will cook in the residual heat. Just make sure to stir it to keep the pasta from sticking. If the soup is too thick for your liking, you can always add a bit more of stock or milk. If thinner than you prefer, you can always thicken it with a bit of cornstarch and water mixture.

Salt and pepper to taste.
Thank you young man!

Well yeah, obviously. But there's a severe lack of (what I assumed were essential) nutrients and vitamins is what I meant.
I think you're underestimating what can be obtained from those 3 foods. Obviously not advocating that as a diet but I'd be more concerned with all the shit that you are getting that you shouldn't be than vice versa.

You've got your 3 important macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fats) all covered. For micronutrients it really depends on the meat but most will be very high in B6, Riboflavin, Niacin and Iron. Potatoes have you covered on vitamin C and are one of the best sources of potassium, better than bananas which for some reason everyone thinks are the best way to get potassium.

Box Mac n Cheese is obviously terrible for you but as far as nutrient content it'll depend on the brand. In most cases this noodles will be enriched with vitamins (which I know is not the ideal way to get them but it's better than nothing) and minerals and you're getting calcium.

Main thing missing from that diet is obviously fiber though you'd get some from the potatoes, just not enough but in terms of nutritional content it's not as bad as you think. I'd be more concerned with all the bullshit you'd be pumping yourself full of eating boxed Mac n cheese on a regular basis

One issue with the Western diet is nobody seems to eat liver. There seem to be endless women who are anemic and the number would likely be much less if liver were eaten the same way that ground beef and chicken are. Same goes for oysters.

Was going to put this in the 'Things that annoy me thread' but #2thread10posts etc.

These cunts...fuck me...they do my head in. Any adult who claims to dislike all vegetables (the food, not the afflicted)really are bastards.

Some of them even boast about it, ffs.

All the variety in tastes and textures and all that shit...it's literally impossible to dislike them all.

My Dad's wife is kinda like this. She was stayiing with us for a few weeks there and i swear to fuck, it was like feeding a fuckin todler. Even when we went out for meals, the humming and hawing over the menu.

Context and occasion are critical, Mandela.

I've heard tell of a young fella who was rug-munching / going down on / eating out a young lass who's acquaintance he'd just made, when he found a piece of cabbage in his gub.

Not wanting to embarrass the lass, he discretely spat it out and got stuck back in. Some time later, he tasted something tart and upon checking, found a wee bit of a pickle protruding from her bearded clam. Again, somewhat irritated, he nudged it out of the way with nary a word and put his tongue back to work.

Then came the straw that broke the camels back... a long stringy piece of asparagus became dislodged from the young cutty's cunny.

"Jesus Christ, girl, what in fuck's name is wrong with you ?" he shouted. " Are ye fuckin' sick ?

"Naw laddie, " she replied, "but the laddie down there before you was."



In that kind of situation, I can't think of any vegetable I'd fancy munching on.

The children of adults who won't eat their vegetables should tell them they can't leave the table until they do.

What's kangaroo like? Is it gamey like dear or goat? Is the flavor really distinct? Whenever people that have never eaten goat ask me what goat tastes like I tell them I can't think of another way to describe it other than saying it tastes like goat. Is kangaroo the same way?

It's not gamey really, it's not that dissimilar to steak. Leaner, so not as nice as a rib eye, but like a decent rump steak. Not very gamey really. Ostrich is worth a go too, as it's like a lean steak again, but very healthy compared to proper red meats, plus ostriches look like cunts and probably act like them too, so you feel less potential guilt.

Fuck yeah they act like cunts. When I was a kid my car broke down in the middle of a drive through zoo. Fucking ostrich ran up on me and was attacking the car. Fucker was like a Floridian on bath salts. Smashing his face against the glass trying to get in to kill me and the girl that was with me.

I like kangaroo, but it's one of those meats that seems to have a very narrow window. Cook it well and it's delicious. Get it wrong by 5% and it turns into a disc brake. Although I guess if you bought it, it'd be at a restaurant rather than just picking up a couple of steaks from the supermarket. So that would be nullified.

:hat

You can encircle an ostrich's neck with your hands and it doesn't give a fuck, but pat it on the top of the head and it'll go apeshit. Weird animals.

I generally have greens with every lunch or dinner meal.

Some of my favorites are:

Sausage + Sauerkraut + Broccoli
Bacon + Broccoli
Tuna (Albacore) + Broccoli + Banana Slices
Pork Chops + Green Beans
Breaded Chicken + Broccoli + Orange Slices

All good combo plates.
