grown-up fail #18437,32343  
I went on a cooking kick recently. I'm all for anything that involves copious amounts of shopping, even if it is just for seventeen different types of spices. So far I've made chicken noodles and chorizo spaghetti bolognaise.

I realised halfway through making the bolognaise sauce that I didn't have a can-opener. I ended up stabbing a hole in the side of the can with a scissors and letting chopped tomatoes drip into the frying pan at a rate of hours.

I sometimes wonder...

Although, how the fuck do you not own a tin-opener?!

There was none when I moved in and I didn't think to buy one! I did remember a frying pan though. And a ladle. A pink one.

I'm right handed and I still can't use them properly. I think there should be a law making them all ring-pulls.

That might have warranted a quick run to the store...

Yeah, but I was in my pjs with wet hair and it's all the way across the road! :/

Yeah, I wouldn't have done it either.

We've been cooking a lot with chorizos lately - they're so yummy! Not healthy in the slightest, I think, but very good.

Awww no! Don't tell me that! :/

Well, most of the recipes I have call for chopping them and frying them first, so a lot of the fat does come out of them if you then drain them on paper towel and wipe out the frypan! I don't know how much is left, though.

Um. I've done that before as well? >.>; Though on the top of the can.

You are strong! I failed at that.

HOW did you not have a tin-opener?! Well, good for you anyway!

idk, being an adult doesn't come with a starter-pack?
