I'm embarassed to admit....

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I had to call my mom to help me pick out steak for shish kabobs.

Yet, I stood & read every label on every can of Fancy Feast to find ones that had no by-products!

I think I need to learn more "human food" skills & less cat/dog food ones!

Oh I get completely confused with all the different sorts of meats as well, I never know what I'm supposed to use. I end up just asking one of the butchers

I call my mom ALL the time for cooking advice. I start out with "I have a cooking question." She is always happy to help. I often think to myself that one day I will not be able to call and ask her anymore, and that makes me sad. What I have done, is made a cookbook with all her and my grandma's recipes in it that I love, so I'll always know how to make stuff they made (even if it will never be quite as good as theirs). Then I can pass it on to my kids.
PS. I use stew meat for my shish kabobs. I think it's easier to chew, is in small pieces and doesn't take long to cook.

Huh? There's an actual steak for shish kabob?

I just pick the pre-made stuff

Whenever we make kabobs, we just get a package of the stew meat - its cut up for you in perfect size for the stick. Add cherry tomatoes, whole mushrooms, red/green peppers, chunk of onion, and some pineapple an you have a great meal.

I got some mock tender steak. I dunno. I never realized that there was some that costs $5+ bucks a pound!

I think I really need to shop for myself & the family more....I'll never make it on my own at this rate!

I call my Mom for cooking advice regularly! Sometimes it's just a 'where do I find _______ in the grocery store?' type question.

As long as you don't have to ask "where is the pepper?" you'll be ok..........I'm serious - our one boy moved out on his own. Went grocery shopping and had to call us up and ask where in the heck was the pepper kept in the store...I did my best to refrain from laughing outloud when I answered him.....

Not so embarassed anymore! You should've seen the lady standing next to me when I had to call mom at work to ask her, though!

OMG that is so funny, I do the same thing!!
Mom never misses a beat and just says "medium." We like it the same way but have found some places make it TOO rare, like they just ran it through a warm room before serving it. Medium is usually perfect, with just a little pink like I like it. I think now I pretty much remember but for a long time I had to ask her. LOL

Totally not something to be embarassed about!! As everyone has said, we all do it sometimes!

I find myself calling my grandfather or mom for cooking questions even in the middle of already making a meal

We all learn something new everyday! Now I know what to use for shish kabob!!! BF should thank you guys

If it makes you feel better, my mum calls me

Is stew meat tender enough to use like that though? I don't want something too chewy and tough!

I'm lost when it comes to meat, too, but the rest of my family seems to know a thing or to. ~ Kiba
