Basic Bachelor Cooking:

  • Foil is the cornerstone. If a pan is wrapped in foil before cooking, it’s easier to clean afterwards. In a pinch, makeshift cookware can be formed with foil. A double layer of foil and plastic wrap will keep food safe in a freezer for months.
  • Your can opener is your best friend. Good nutrition involves vegetables, and vegetables come in cans.
  • Two words. Tony Chachere’s.
  • Don’t over-economize on food; you have to eat it. If you’re going to cut corners, do it with cleaning supplies. Dishwashing detergent is diswashing detergent, but a good meal can make your entire day.
  • When the smoke detector goes off, dinner is ready.

The bad news is that Brunching Shuttlecocks is no more. Brunching has been an internet staple for years and even spawned a book. BS has always been a first-rate timekiller.

The good news is that Lore and Dave will continue with the Book of Ratings and the Self-Made Critic on their own websites. The Brunching Archives will also be around for the foreseeable future.

Brunching Shuttlecocks receives five Tiny Skulls out of five.
