    Default I'll be alone for 9 days

    This is not like "I'm lonely. Care to come over?" kind of a thread.

    My mother has left overseas for a short period as she miss her country and my father will be joining her tommorow. I was invited to come along but I refused.

    Why? For one, I am tad busy with my study and theres no way I'm going to keep up if I'm in China.

    For two, I'm hosting a game of mafia and playing a few.

    For three... Well I don't mind a oppotunity to totally be alone for 9 days. I do have my grandma and uncle with me but they live in the different building.

    So it looks like I'll be cooking, cleaning, doing the washing and everything by my self added to everything else I normally do.

    Its my first time ever of being alone for more then a day. Not counting the boarding house. So its going to be the day when Beefy turns big!!

    Is there any advice from any of you living by your self/ used to live by your self? Whats the usual traps? Any encouragement and cheering would be nice too

    Thanks

    When you wash clothes, segregation of blacks and whites is a good thing, or else you will get a purplish race of sock, t-shirts, and underwear. I found that one out the hard way. :P I live like a total slob, so any advice I give would probably not do you any good, so all I will say is have fun, and take advantage of and enjoy your time alone.

    I have never had this happen, I have always found it strange how in sitcoms they say you have to separate colours from whites when washing. Maybe we just have superior washing powder here

    I have never had the problem in the states, but here in Hungary I have. Now I am doomed to walk around in off-purple underwear for all of eternity! :P

    You have to do this. No exceptions. It's a requirement or something.

    To honor you, I shall spend a entire day in my half of the building... Nude

    17 (Turning 18 in few months), never had a girl friend, don't have alot of friend around (came back from Australia recently) so I seriously doubt the possibility of partying.

    Hey, at least you are one of the few guys out there with the balls to admit it. There is nothing wrong with that though, you are only 17.

    Well you're still going better than me, I'm twenty and still single.

    That nudity advice should be taken with some caution, here in australia it is quite sensible advice, but in some parts of the world I imagine going tackle out could be very dangerous

    I don't plan to leave my room except for meals and greeting someone outside.

    If that happens, I'll quickly put on my body armours.

    Be assured I don't plan to get caught by a police for nudity

    I was talking about weather, I imagine that in colder climates nudity wouldn't be inadvisable(unless of course you're russian). But yes answering the door in your b'day suit would not be advisable either

    Spring.. Mixture of cold breeze and heat wave. Thus more likely to catch a cold...

    I think I might just shut the window, and my door.

    Though if my Grandma decides to check out if I'm alright, I would be in deep trouble....

    Anyway... Whos good at cooking? I'm awful and I might need to know a few easy recipes

    You should cook soup. Throw some meat and veggies in a boiling pot of water, add some vegetable stock and any herbs and spices you want, then simply wait half an hour for the food to cook itself.

    Simple and easy recipe that not even a guy can mess up:

    Mix up sour cream and what ever spices you want
    Hard boil 2 dozen eggs
    Grease the bottom of a baking pan with butter
    Lay a little sour cream down
    put some slices of hard boiled eggs on that
    put some thinly sliced sausage of your liking on top of that, repeat till you reach the top of the pan or run out of ingredients.

    If you use different spices and different sausage, and different amounts of ingredients each time, it will always be something different. It will feed you the whole day, and maybe two.

    And probably get you a stroke or two as well, Vuk.

    I buy those japanese curry cubes quite often. At the back it tells you exactly what to do as well. (Just get chicken thighs or large legs or drumsticks - never breast, for a total of 1kg or 1.3kg of meat. Also 1 large potato and 6 medium carrots) That will last you about 4-5 meals. Oh, and add all 6 cubes and total about 800 ml water.

    Meat (pork, beef) steak is quite simple too. Fry in a bit of oil (just enough to cover base of ban when hot) and turn them every few mins. I like em well done so total about 15 mins. Add mushrooms (sliced or simply peel with your fingers) and onions (chopped any way you like) about 1/3 of the way in. Serve with cooked rice.

    Pork steaks (especially shoulder/neck) you can also bake to make em more tender. Glaze very lightly with oil, marinade (touch up) with light soy, some salt and pepper. Honey or sweet/sour sauce optional. Then put on foil in the oven at ~200░C for 35 or so mins. Make sure the meat isn't red inside or put it back for another 10.

    For vegetables, you can get 2 large pak choi (lasts 1 meal). Peel off each "part" and then wash thoroughly in warm water. Throw stalk and center stuffs away. Cut off the bottom bits of each "part". Then put the similar size "parts" on top of each other and slice through the center vertically and then several times horizontally. Rinse and repeat till its all nicely chopped. Now get 1 garlic tooth, peel it, chop off the top and bottom. Crush with the side of a large knife. Throw it in a smallish pot with a drizzle of oil and fry for just under a minute. Add in all the Pak choi at once. It may look as if it won't fit, but it will shrink eventually. Let it fry and move stuff around with a wooden spoon or similar for a few mins (stir fry), then add about 1 cup of water and let it cook (lid on) for about 5 mins. Ready to eat.

    There's also Tomatoes and Egg. Take about 5 eggs and 4 medium sized (larger than fist) tomatoes. That should last you 3 meals. Chop tomatoes in 1/8 each, removing the top and bottom bits of each. Then fry in some oil all 5 eggs raw, using a wooden spoon or similar to move it around so it doesn't stick. Add a bit of salt and pepper. Once the eggs turn white/yellowish, add 2 tea spoons of cornflour (optional, but good idea) and half a cup of water. Mix for a little while and add tomatoes to the pot. Let simmer for about 6 or so mins with lid on and serve.

    If you have zero experience cooking, but want to learn to fend for your self, I recommend starting with breakfast. It's the simplest meal to prepare (and some folks say it's the most important meal of the day), and will introduce you to the kitchen, the stove, pots and pans, and utensils.

    Start with bacon and scrambled eggs.

    Cooking (with fire) is all about planning ahead. You don't want to be in the middle of having something in the pan, over a hot fire, and suddenly realizing "Oh, I need this thing, or that! But I can't stop paying attention to this pan and fire right now! I might burn down the house.".

    So, looking ahead, assemble near you:

    a small fry pan
    a spatula
    a fork
    a plate
    a piece of paper towel
    a small bowl
    2 eggs
    4 slices of bacon
    1 slice of your favorite cheese

    Start with the bacon (cuz it takes longer): heat the fry pan up to medium heat (should take about 15 seconds); put in the bacon slices. After about 1 minute, flip the slices over with the fork. Wait another minute, and flip 'em again. Repeat a couple more times, until the bacon looks like the crispiness you like.

    Take the bacon out of the pan and place them on the paper towel to drain. Turn off the fire under the pan.

    Crack the eggs on the rim of the bowl (this takes a little practice, if you have never done it before; but you'll catch on quickly), and pour the contents into the bowl. Stir the eggs up with the fork.

    Heat up the fry pan to medium heat, and pour the eggs out of the bowl, into the fry pan. It makes a pancake-looking thing in the pan, and the outside edges start to curl up a bit.

    Take your spatula and break up the mass of eggs, and stir them around in the pan, until you see no more "shine" on the eggs. Turn off the fire.

    Using the spatula, lift the eggs out of the fry pan, and onto the dish. Add the bacon, and put the slice of cheese on top of the eggs.

    Sit down and eat.

    Clean up all the stuff you used (or at least soak them in water in the sink, so they are easier to clean later).
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.

    Agreed, but you can make it healthier and easier if you do not use bacon, but instead dump a can of tuna into your bowl and mix it in with the eggs. It is called *drumroll* Scrambled Eggs and Tuna
    :P
    Really easy to make, exceptionally tasty, very healthy, less to clean.
    :P

    EDIT: And if you try to put cheese on this, you will not like the results. :P

    Will be making breakfast, lunch and Dinner for my self tommorow, although my dad made a large stock of curry using the Japanese curry cubes already which should last me for a while..
    Though I plan not to depend on it too much (Shame I can eat the same curry for every meal without getting bored..Thats how much I love curry)

    Day after I'll have to make dinner for my grandmother as well which should be less oiley then what I usually eat.

    You need a George Foreman grill. Those things are freakin' amazing.
    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    Yes a George Foreman grill is an invaluable tool.

    but if you want to impress the grand parents you should do a roast, chook, lamb, beef, take your pick.

    despite what everyone thinks they are very easy.

    you need a baking tray, a rack to put the roast on and an oven at 200 degrees celcius(not sure what that is in fahrenheit)

    you can buy a plain roast and marinate it yourself or buy a pre marinated one from the supermarket.

    cook it for about 30mins for every 500g

    if you have a fan forced oven you can just put the roast in and set an alarm for when its done, if not you will need to rotate it a few times,

    put all the veggies in about 45mins before the roast is done. if you do potatoes then don't peel them, they taste much better in their jackets, but you will need to cut them in half if you don't peel them

    then serve and enjoy

    the plus side is you've got cold meat for a few days worth of sangers.

    Curry FTW

    at simplest version - buy curry sauce,
    put that and anything else in fridge not past use-by date in same pan and simmer for an hour.

    Normal rules of planning to be alone for weekend (adult version) - plan that without other half / family / friends interfering, you'll get all outstanding jobs done; paperwork, cleaning, garden, diy, re-decoration, finishing mod, testing game, etc... etc... - actually achieve; play with cat, read news, eat curry, fall asleep in front of telly...

    LOL, ain't that the truth? My Missus is out-of-town visiting her Mum for 2 weeks, and I have "The List". I intend well, but I know me: if I get 10% crossed off the list, I'll count myself successful.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.
