    Me neither.. Once something starts getting a couple of days from experation, my subconscious starts telling my nose that it doesn't smell "right". I usually buy no more food than I can eat over the next 3 or 4 days to prevent it from happening. Got some bacon in the fridge right now that my nose is telling me is "cuspy", but my wife is telling me "smells like bacon".

        lol.. probably. Co-workers think I am nuts. They shrug at use by/best by or expiration dates

        • It's OK, I have a friend who freaked out that her cat was going to get sick as he had licked some raw chicken. I did not realize cats had to cook their mice....

The idea that meat didn't hafta be a hockey puck was a novel concept. That was around the time I gave up ketchup, come to think of it, was around the time I started opting for meat, not charcoal.
            I am trying to work on this one with my girlfriend. She did say yesterday that she'd rather eat something undercooked (read: medium well...I'm not kidding) than something bland, so that's a start. We had dinner with her family recently and they all had paper-thin, extremely well done steaks so I guess I found the root cause.
            I wish I liked to eat liver.

              Oh my GOD, WHAT THE HELL is up with these "thin cut steaks"? I mean, Ive only really been cooking for the last...year and a half, but in that time they have noticeably become more common at the grocery store. And they are LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE to cook properly. I tried a "thin cut" ribeye the other day, figuring that since it was fatty and more tender than the other cuts it wouldnt be that bad, especially if I just seared it quickly on each side. NOPE. Came out leathery and terrible.

              I ate it, cause, you know, an animal died for that travesty, but will never get that shit again.

              • I can understand cutting ketchup, ranch etc for dipping. But I don't care how amazingly cooked a meal is, if Cholula or Sriracha is within my reach, it's going on the food. And kielbasa and sauerkraut without mustard? BAH!

                • is food edible without dippers?

                  yes.

                  do i want to eat it without dippers?

                  no.

                  Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                    The idea that raw meat/fish is dangerous, that things must be refrigerated CONSTANTLY, thrown out after an arbitrary number of days, etc... just use your sense and sensibility, and remember that exposure to some "ickies" actually strengthens your immune system (novel concept, I know).

                    Overheard this weekend: "well, this yogurt's been out of the fridge for 3 hours, so I should probably toss it, just to be safe."
                    O_o huh?
                    OH, NOES!!!! It might have a few thousand more bacteria than the millions it had four hours ago!

                      I have to say, however, that the one time she bought us steaks, they were about 1.5" thick ribeyes. Maybe we should teach her family a thing or two!

                      • Overheard last night in Mothercare (a maternity/children's store):

                        Woman at register buying clothes for her ?granddaughter, eyeing the milk chocolate lollies on the counter next to the till: "Do you have these in white chocolate? Milk makes her hyper."

                        I so badly wanted to look over and tell her, "You do know white chocolate is made with milk solids as well?!" Gah! The ignorance! Is astounding!

I think that even beyond masking bad food or bland food, it's part of the trend for food makers to pump out addictive crap made from cheap sweeteners and industrial oils that circumvent our satiety and make us gorge liked coked-up monkeys. They'll keep coming back like addicts, and we'll keep making money off their mania for cheap food, FTW!
                            Thanks, Finnegans Wake. I think this was what I was trying to express when I mentioned my dislike for "the dip".

                            I am not saying I never dip foods. Chicken and mayo...my god, what would life be like without it? I am saying that too often, though, these things (bottled ranch dressing, ridiculously sweet ketchups) are used to mask the terrible, bland food we foist on the kids. And it's become so very ubiquitous...I dunno. My idealism is showing, I know, and in three years I'll come back to this thread and respond with a YOU WERE RIGHT YOU WERE ALL RIGHT. but it's unsettling how often I see kids who will refuse to eat without their "dip".

                              When I gave up meat to be a vegetarian, I would point out the tastelessness of a hamburger and say that who needed it, it was tasteless and vile anyway. It was the sauces that made the difference. Then I went Primal and ate grassfed beef... and found out it was the sauces that were vile and the meat the best part.

                              On the other side of that, there is a Cooks Illustrated or Cooks Country recipe for Pan Fried Sole with Lemon butter Herb Sauce that we adapt for primal that is OMG good.
