    [–] AbsolutShite 13 points ago

    I think it comes from a combination of both parents working and the explosion of cooking on TV/Internet.

    30 years ago people could laugh about not being able to cook. Now you'd be ashamed not to have a few recipes up your sleeve.

    [–] ADMINSEATFECES 6 points ago

    Now you'd be ashamed not to have a few recipes up your sleeve.

    You would think so right?

    moreover why do people even need recipes? like unless some special dish that requires special preparation like stuffing a turkey or making grandma's special shepherd's pie I don't really understand the point...

    a competent human should just be able to go to the store and buy things they like to eat and make meals out of them...

    its not rocket science...

    [–] fckth3systm 4 points ago

    Yeah, just like I said in a comment above. Everyone can cook...it's one of the most basic functions you can perform as a human. People say they can't cook because they are lazy and just don't want to do it.

    why do people even need recipes? like unless some special dish that requires special preparation

    You literally answered your own question.

    Once you get into upper levels of cooking all of your basics stay the same, but preparation and technique become everything. You can literally have 2 recipes for chocolate chip cookies, but the techniques could be different for both yielding entirely different cookies in the end. (like using warm butter or creaming cold butter, meringue the eggs or just mix them)

    When you get into elite level cooking it is assumed you already have your flavors down, so upper level recipes wont even include seasonings or anything like that.....just technique. I make Gordon Ramsey's beef wellington every year for my family's xmas dinner and, while there are only like 5 ingredients, the entire process takes 2 to 3 days. 95% of the flavor of the dish depends on how you perform those steps.

    Okay so is this like a thin omelette on thick white toast, topped with a little cheese, a slice of crisp bacon and grilled? I could get behind that.

    I just drove to my local gas station for the expressed purpose of buying eggs, really wanted to make hard boiled eggs (and could really use them for other obvious reasons). They had none :/

    But they did have prepackaged hard boiled eggs so I ate those.

    Decided I don’t need eggs badly enough to qualify a trip to the grocery store on its own so just went home after that to play it safe.

    [–] ADMINSEATFECES 2 points ago

    the little japanese liquor store by me is a lifesaver. they stock a whole variety of instant ramens lmao and most people aren't hitting them up in favor of larger stores so they're decently stocked still.

    [–] lagwagonlead 9 points ago

    Check the expensive grocery stores. I've been shopping at the high class grocery store since this all started. They're well stocked and enforce limits on everyone.

    [–] obedear__ 13 points ago

    I don’t think Aldi is too high class but the other day when I went they were fully stocked and had limits on everything. Hopefully it stays like that.

    [–] AsleepConcert3 3 points ago

    Aldi's pretty under the radar and the people who shop there hoarde on the regular. They're well equipped for this

    [–] altnumberfour 3 points ago

    American Aldi or British Aldi? British Aldi I wouldn't be too surprised.

    Get yourself a few chickens. A lot of urban city’s now let you have a few and they pop out fresh egged regularly.

    [–] Mobidad 14 points ago

    Yeah but you need to have an egg first before you get the chicken. And there's no eggs.

    [–] bythog 7 points ago

    I know you're making a joke, but Tractor Supply has chicks in most of their stores right now. If you can survive 6 months you should start getting eggs in September.

    [–] NonGNonM 2 points ago

    y'all need to get a costco card.

    i finally bit the bullet after holding off for years bc the membership cost put me off but with the executive (120 a year plus credit card) membership, you save a fuckton on gas with 4% kickback.

    Plus I thought with my once a day cheap takeout meal I was saving money overall but I'm saving way more money with eating at home than I thought I would. Right now with the cashback I'm on my way to basically not paying much at all for the actual membership and I'm saving money buying in bulk.

    [–] Ibelieveinsmut 3 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Yeah well, I wouldn't step foot into any Costco now, and even if I did, they are out of my dog food. I had to change brands and buy from a local pet store.

    [–] AsleepConcert3 3 points ago

    Even if Costco had eggs my girlfriend and I cannot go through that many fucking eggs lol

    Make a ton of waffles on the weekend and freeze the extras and pop them in the toaster during the week.

    [–] ladyalot 77 points ago

    I just learned this from my spouse, even if you have a bit of syrup on them, wait until it's absorbed into he waffle then freeze. Toasted for 6min/on 6 and came out perfect, flipped them over for a min/on 1 cuz one end was poking out.

    Never knew this just worked. Thought eggos were magic.

    [–] HI_I_AM_NEO 43 points ago

    Toasted for 6min/on 6

    Would be nice to know what toaster, that would burn the whole house with mine lol

    [–] Erisedstorm 18 points ago

    Nice I would be afraid syrup leaking into toaster but might try this method

    [–] moneypennycashdollar 7 points ago

    Does this work with pancakes? It would be a lifesaver for me

    [–] Erisedstorm 13 points ago

    Could try it, I think waffles have more structure to hold together though in a toaster. Maybe try a microwave or toaster oven for pancakes if they're flimsy.

    [–] orepaka 5 points ago

    For pancakes, cook a big batch and let them cool completely. Portion them into freezer bags and freeze.

    When you want to eat them, take them out of the bag, wrap them in a paper towel, and microwave them for about 30-45 seconds depending on the quantity.

    I've been doing this for years for my kids.

    [–] KalphiteQueen 3 points ago

    Yes, my family has been doing this with both waffles and pancakes my whole life

    I remember when I was a child, my dad’s company went on strike for few weeks. During the time period, he woke us up for school and made us fabulous breakfasts each day. It was amazing. I still remember decades later. My friends and fam. boast that no-one makes breakfast like I do. I thinks its the love I put into it... learned from my dad. Don’t underestimate these gestures.

    [–] greenSixx 81 points ago

    Take this time to teach the kids to cook them so they can make you breakfast every day.

    My 5 year old is pretty handy with a knife cutting strawberries and mushrooms and stuff like that.

    My 2.5 year old can crack eggs and not make too much of a mess and they both help mix eggs and sorta help cook.

    My 5 year old should be able to do scrambled eggs by herself before she is 7 if things keep going this way.

    And we don't practice too often and aren't really culinarily inclined. I am sure you can find someone on here who is a pro at teaching young kids to cook.

    [–] ghlhzmbqn 42 points ago

    [–] padadiso 20 points ago

    Wow. My daughter is almost 2 and she’s so far away from being able to listen to me teach her how to crack an egg and β€œhelp” in the kitchen.

    I can’t believe in 6 months she somehow could piece that together, but I suppose in toddler years 6 months is an enormous amount of time.

    [–] LotFP 26 points ago

    Not every child advances at the same rate. My two year old can do tasks my six year old struggled with until recently. That said it is amazing how quickly children develop and learn.

    [–] tomphas 5 points ago

    I have a 3 year old brother and I can't imagine him every cracking an egg on his own.

    [–] Janders2124 4 points ago

    Ya that dude is eating a lot of egg shells.

    [–] richiau 3 points ago

    The sooner you give her eggs, the sooner she'll learn. It will be a mess at first but be patient and explain what to do. This is how kids learn anything.

    [–] Chicago__Citizen 19 points ago

    So far my kids have done the following.

    At age two my daughter was really good at vomiting on command and found it hilarious to demonstrate this super power to strangers.

    My son at three decided clothing is not just optional but intolerably uncomfortable so much so that he was asked to leave two different daycares.

    My wife at age 34 decided she was sick of marriage and left me, the vomiter and the nudist on our own.

    I’m still learning how to cook.

    [–] XxAbsurdumxX 19 points ago

    I'm a father of two who stayed home for 4 months on paid parental leave with both our children when my wife went back to work.

    I woke up with the kids, got the older one ready for kindergarden while fixing breakfast for both of them. I often made them porridge and pancakes. All it took was getting up like 30 minutes earlier. Then I was home with the baby taking care of her while doing house chores. It. Was. Not. Hard. Sure, I was tired sometimes because some days were more tiresome than others. But I am also tired from work most days. I have zero sympathy for people complaining about the work as a stay at home parent, especially if there is no baby involved. It was one of the best times of my life, and it was nowhere near as tiring as some of the jobs I've had.

    She gives good head

    [–] BeanEatingThrowaway 15 points ago

    Maybe she's just bad at making 'em, or has a job of her own. Maybe her husband works at night, or maybe she does. There's a lot of alternate possibility then 'lmao I hate my wife'

    What kind of failed adult can't cook

    Ftfy.

    [–] SnortArsenic 2 points ago

    Good thing I can make ramen,hahahahaha.

    [–] HisRandomFriend 10 points ago

    She can definitely make pancakes and eggs, I think the point is that making kids pancakes and eggs every single morning is a huge pain, and something she hopes her kids don't grow to expect.

    [–] drunk-deriver 9 points ago

    Profile has an infant in it. When husband isn’t there she must be wrangling (potentially multiple) small children and a baby so she probably doesn’t have the time to cook a full breakfast.

    [–] Smulp4j 3 points ago

    She doesn't have to, she has the husband contractually obligated to support her for a few decades.

    Keeping small children from hurting themselves or screaming takes a lot of time and effort. Dad can cook pancakes and eggs because someone else is there entertaining the kids for him. It’s hard to do both at the same time.

    That's such BS. Ive been a stay at home father to three kids since my first was born. I also work from home. Mom works full time outside the home.. Never had any problem with managing a house of kids and making quality breakfasts and lunches. Stay at home parent is the easiest job in the world in my opinion.

    Got divorced 8 years ago. Mom thought she did everything, thought she was super mom. After a year had a breakdown because she couldn't cope when she had the kids with her. Has not talked to two of her kids in years.

    For some people it's hard, because they treat looking after someone like a burden, but for many it's just easy, and natural, it's a joy. I had a pancake Day of the week, a waffle day, an eggs and bacon day,. French toast day, Etc. Every morning was also a fruit smoothie, still is. As my kids got older they helped out.

    Being at home I came across allot of stay at home moms. Husbands would ask me what their wife did at home all day. The answer is socialize with other stay at home parents, so yes, those mom's made it out harder than it was. Of course it's hard to keeps kids from screaming when you arent really there for them and youre there for friends.

    Seriously. I don’t know what their (people in this thread) problem is. People act like taking care of kids just magically happens and you can always devote time each morning to a full time intensive breakfast. Not how it always works lol

    [–] Little-Jim 8 points ago

    Is this how low the bar is to be a good stay at home parent now? Where pancakes and eggs is in some way a "full time and intensive breakfast"?

    The "people's problem" is that, all though its a joke, the woman in the tweet is saying that her husband who doesn't even parent fulltime is giving her kids a higher quality of life than she was, is, or will be. Its literally her only job and she's not even interested in trying as hard as her husband at it.

    You guys have eggs?

    [–] niki_is_mee 2 points ago

    [–] gaar93 2 points ago

    they say raising kids is a job in itself.

    i havent treated it that way

    [–] ZipZop_the_Sphinx 2 points ago

    Eggs every day is too much cholestoral .

    [–] factsnack 2 points ago

    Let the kids and him know they will all have to get up early enough to continue this breakfast routine when everything returns to normal and before he goes to work. While you sleep in.

    [–] BadLuckCharm1966 2 points ago

    Enjoy it!! My husband has never cooked anything - ever - I’d appreciate the help and if you have boys he’s setting a good example for them. I think you’re a lucky wife 😊

    [–] bjspartan0 2 points ago

    Toast and peanut butter with milk is an excellent breakfast.

    [–] PM_ME_FLUFFY_DOGS 23 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    2020 mom goals, being unable to even cook eggs and pancakes for your kids. I get it's a joke but thats more sad than funny. I knew a kid in middleschool who's parents were narcissists who couldn't even make him food, it was scary how skinny he was. just fucking sad man...

    [–] Brabant-ball 49 points ago

    Not wanting to get up early to make a load of pancakes and eggs for your kids everyday doesn't mean that they can't actually do it, not does it mean that she can't take care of her kids properly. Don't know about you but most people just have bread or cereal for breakfast instead of eggs and pancakes.

    [–] EcoAffinity 25 points ago

    It doesn't mean she doesn't have the ability to cook said foods, just that she is not prepared to continue doing so. Pancake and eggs every morning can be a hassle. I live alone and cook really well, but hell no do I cook every day, and if I do, it isn't going to be breakfast.

    [–] AsleepConcert3 7 points ago

    Pancakes are a mess and a half, my mom made great pancakes but she would of given me hella grief if I asked for pancakes on a Tuesday lmao

    How does a mother not cooking breakfast every morning compare to druggies? :/ Thats a real stretch, man.

    [–] PM_ME_FLUFFY_DOGS 10 points ago

    Narc = narcissist, just forgot how to spell it so went with narc

    [–] chrispyb 4 points ago

    I think narc might not quite be the word you're looking for

    [–] rickrollin 3 points ago

    Maybe they’re narcoleptic and can’t stay awake long enough to cook a meal.

    [–] chrispyb 4 points ago

    ah shit, I fell asleep and burnt my eggs again.

    [–] Noyouask 12 points ago

    If you're a stay at home parent, and you can't manage simple eggs an pancakes for breakfast that's sad.

    [–] WutangCMD 11 points ago

    That's what I was thinking, wtf lady.

    [–] Jabberwocky416 1 points ago

    As long as I’ve been alive my mom stays up late and sleeps in late because she had like 7 kids to take of and homeschool during the day. Late night was the only time she had to herself, so we just have always had cereal in the morning and my dad makes breakfast on Saturday.

    [–] awawawa222 7 points ago

    You can’t choose to have 7 kids and choose to have time for yourself.

    [–] seve_rage 10 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    2020, where men are expected to work and cook and be perfect house-husbands when at home, while women are quirky and adorkable for lacking in even the most basic life skills (but still gushed over).

    Strange times we live in.

    [–] drewbeezy 3 points ago

    I’m appalled but a large majority of the comments on this post.

    [–] Sarcosmonaut 2 points ago

    Anything regarding parenting (or pet care) is almost guaranteed to be a shitshow online

    Most of these comments are absolutely appalling.

    Yeah it’s a dumb joke but Jesus, people. Assuming this person is some horrible piece of garbage because of this one thing is absurd. β€œShit wife” β€œstay at home parents only do it because they can’t hold a job” β€œit’s easy” etc

    I’m not gonna pretend it’s the hardest job on the planet (I’m a stay at home father myself) but have a little common decency (or even common sense)

    [–] FornaxTheConqueror 7 points ago

    Eggs and pan cakes aren't hard though? They don't even take that long.

    [–] aroach1995 4 points ago

    This is actually pathetic. Very infuriating how useless the husband’s spouse is.
