Oh my pillows, it’s Friday. And that means it’s time for the Friday Open Thread, an undercover project I instituted at this website to slowly collect information on someone I have a crush on who’s very into sharing details about their life via the comments. IS IT YOU?
This week marks the second week of the greatest television show in recent history, Master Chef Junior. If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend you get on board and pick your faves right now. This show brings us a bevy of tiny culinary geniuses that make me worry I might not be making grilled cheese correctly. If anyone here was a baby chef, please let it be known. And everyone else, what was the first dish you remember making for yourself and/or others?
I’d be interested in talking to my siblings about this but I feel like the dish that signified you were a Big Person and allowed to use the stove on your own and generally considered capable of not burning down the house was eggs. One Sunday you’d wake up, young and starving, and ask, “What’s for breakfast?” and hear, “Make yourself some eggs!” and that’s how you knew you’d arrived. So let’s hear it. What’s the first meal you were allowed to make yourself? How old were you? Did you ever set your kitchen on fire? And also catch us up on your lives, your loves, your pets! Liz C. let me hang out with her new pup, Bandit, and he just wanted to live his life in peace I think.
How To Post A Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo! This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix!
How To Post A Video In The Comments, Too:
1. Find a video on YouTube or Vimeo or WHATEVER and click “embed.” Copy that code, but first make sure it’s for 640px wide or less. If your player is too large, it will not display properly.
2. Copy the code and paste it directly into your comment.
3. Go forth and jam.
