Freeze-thaw cycles and poorly stored foods. Am I gonna die?

So due to a complicated set of circumstances, pretty much all of my food preps ended up being stored in a non-climate-controlled setting from last November until a few days ago. I'm in St Louis, so that means below freezing temperatures for some of the winter, and +90* temps over the summer. Whar I'...

Re: Cooking (poorly) with Shrapnel

Pasta, soups, burgers, chicken, tacos... I mean you can do a lot without an oven. Most of my older recipes are non-oven and pretty easy, and here's some links to recipes/recipe collections that I haven't tried but which you might want to look through, at least potentially. As I work through them I'l...

Potato latkes, for those of you who are Jewish, or who just appreciate a good potato pancake. Adapted from here with a few changes. 2 c grated potato (or shredded?

Re: Cooking (poorly) with Shrapnel

Beans and rice, for when you can't be fucked to go to the store for much, but you have preps and a few fresh veggies. It's delicious, filling, and makes a lot of food. I use canned stuff mostly, but you can use dried whatever, if that's how you prefer to roll. Sub out veggie broth and use different ...

Interestingly, we often get into a very similar problem when we have a thread regarding police brutality, both on the "this is why I hate police" and the "this is why I hate criminals whining that they got roughed up a bit for being criminals " front.
