All Your Food- and Drink-Related Pet Peeves

And hi back atcha! We need listeners!!

 

One of my pet peeves is the insistence on saying how many ingredients are in a recipe - and the lower the number, the better it's supposed to be. This trend seems to be relatively new, but it's everywhere. Only five ingredients!! Only three ingredients!!! I'm waiting for a recipe to blare: No Ingredients!! Yes, even you can make this mouth-watering dish using absolutely NO INGREDIENTS!!!!  

One of my pet peeves is when those "3-ingredient" or "4-ingredient" recipes include something like "2 envelopes of instant onion soup," or "1 box spice cake mix."

 

That's not one ingredient, people. It's anywhere from 6 to 20.

Food requiring utensils served on slate. Sure, it looks pretty, but....the scrape of a knife & fork on slate...*shudder*.

Oh Dear God,  wheat in flour?  Next you will be telling me that there is corn in my corn meal.   And might there be oats in my oatmeal too?  Where will it end?

Okay, I'll bite. I notice a thread titled "Lasagna Wars." If we are being correct, the spelling of the dish that involves multiple layers of pasta is in fact spelled Lasagne. Lasagna is the singular, and means ONE NOODLE: specifically referring to one noodle of the style of the broad flat pasta shape used for the casserole dish called Lasagne, which is plural and denotes layers of Lasagna noodles. It isn't really different than calling a dish of long noodles "Spaghetty."

 

Only in America has the name of the dish become, by some sad corruption, "Lasagna." In Europe it is called Lasagne. End of whine.
