Food and all about food...

Can't cook, don't cook, and yes I'm clueless when it comes to cooking. But I love food, I love eating, I love all those delicious and healthy food. I can eat a lot and by a lot I mean really A LOT! I eat out almost every single day. I eat with friends at different restaurants, I eat with gusto! But that doesn't mean I eat everything. I don't eat pork, I rarely eat beef, and I stay away from dairy products. Sadly I can't eat as much cheese as I'd love to. But nevertheless, that doesn't stop me from loving food. Now let me check the weighing scale...

Glad you love food and have your favorites. I do not like to cook or bake, and as a vegetarian, food choices are rather limited for me.

I can understand. One of my friends is a vegetarian and she had to carry her own food whenever we go out.

When you learn the basics in cooking, you can cook everything and anything you crave for. You xan even cook your never if you wish lol.

I doubt it. I know cooking is a talent. When I was in elementary and high school, I learned the basic of cooking in Home Economics class and nope that didn't turn me into a cook.

I think eating out in your country isn't as expensive as eating out in Australia. I know our friends in Singapore eat out all the time.

It depends which restaurant you go to. The cheapest we have paid in eating our recently is about $80.

My. mother was a great cook. She graduated with a degree in Nutrition. She knows exactly what a healthy diet is but she never taught us and I rarely saw her cook when she was still alive.

@toniganzon I took cooking classes and I have a cousin who owns a restaurant and is a professional Chef. The love for cooking is in the family.

@LadyDuck That explains it. My mom was a great cook but she didn't have the time to cook for us when she became a businesswoman. She rarely did that. My grand mommy was a great cook as well. My mother never introduced us to the kitchen though and never taught us any household chores.

I can cook anything and gourmet as well, but choose not to whenever possible. Walking keeps me thin, because I eat more than my husband! I eat almost anything.

I used to not like cooking but at one point I felt like experimenting in the kitchen a bit and have enjoyed it ever since. I think cooking itself is fun, it's just preparing the things (cutting, slicing, soaking, etc) that takes time.

I was not allowed to cook when my mom was alive but just have been starting to cook on my own. I love preparing the food the best and cooking it is great too! I don' like to eat but have discovered that i need to eat so have started to cook again after a period of no cooking

@Marty1 Oh preparation is the least favorite part for me. Sometimes I think it would be so cool if everything's made ready like in those cooking shows on TV . Why weren't you allowed to cook when your mother was alive though?

Wow! Beautiful as always, Toni. Pretty and I don't eat out very often... maybe three times in a month. We both love to cook and we both love to eat what we've cooked. (You still have a standing invitation to come over for lunch or dinner (or both) whenever you make it here.) I would enjoy cooking for you!

I also love eating A LOT, but I do cook, though I think I need a break. I made lasagne tonight and my back is off from all the standing and stirring and mixing. I stay away from the scale!

My friends always wonder where all of the food I have consumed go because I have never been actually fat my entire life no matter how much food I consume. I'm 5'3" and I weigh 51kg.

@toniganzon i weighed about 48 kilograms when i was in college. right now, i am 54.6 kgs, and i am also a rice eater. i think it is because of metabolism that is why we have great appetite but we don't get so fat. i am also 5'3" and 54.6 kilograms.

If I had the money, I would also eat out because I don't like cooking very much. Your food there is probably more healthy than eating out in Texas. The food on the table looks good.
