What about a food ideas section?

Discussion in 'Announcements & Open Forum' started by Captain Kilowatt, Oct 7, 2014.

How about a foodie section where we can swap recipes, cooking or grilling ideas etc.

  1. Sure. I am a foodie and am always looking to share ideas.

  2. No. It has no place on a radio forum.

    Don't forget to place your vote above and not simply say "Yeah" or "No" in a replay.

    Actually this idea came from Tallman as a result of another thread where some hot sauces were discussed while talking about stuffed peppers.

    Keep up the voting and we will see how it goes.

    All of us are into radios and the technology involved and we also EAT. My mom asked me one day if I liked to eat. The answer is an obvious "Hell Yes!" Well she told me I better learn how to cook because most young ladies my age would burn boiled water. Took her advice to heart and learned everything she could teach me on all of my favorite dishes and expanded from there. I do multicultural from real Mexican food to German and Italian favorites. I would be real active in sharing recipes and I'm sure trying out what you guys post as well.

    I grew up as an only child with two working parents. As I got a little older and could be left alone, if I wanted to eat I had to learn a few cooking skills. It didn't hurt me, in fact it made me better. I still shudder to this day when I think about some of my male cousins that hardly know how to boil an egg.

    I said 'No'. If anyone wanted to start a thread about food - or whatever; just go ahead and do it if you think there is something to share that is interesting in some way. Nooooo problemmo there. But to have a dedicated section for it? Why bother? Thought this was a radio forum? Surely there is interest in everything radio here - right?

    I have a simple recipe for BBQ beans; maybe next spring in the General Discussions section . . .

    Found a way to use the ol Weber as a smoker. I like BBQ as much or more as the next guy. Yum; my fave!

    s

    On other forums I belong to like the official Harley Davidson forum they have other sections in addition to all the motorcycle stuff. Those sections are some of the most active and interesting and take nothing away from the main forums. As a matter of fact I think discussing things like this help forum menbers get to know each other on another level and give those who don't post very often and chance to participate. Who here doesn't eat? And I've never been to a hamfest where there was just a bunch of skinny guys.

    Let's face it...I can only read about someone's SWR's so many time before I close the forum window and go bake a souflet. Let's expand our world beyond solder and import radios.
