For those of you confused about the point of this blog aka My Second Nasty Comment

As many of you know, I've been powering through finishing my PhD but I have a ton of blog posts to write so March should be a big month for TJOTJOC!

But what motivated me to write this post was a comment I just received:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Fettuccine with Salmon and Asparagus (p. 327)":

this is not a recipe. you kind of just cooked something and it seems alot like this but you left out real instructions. thief

I found this comment rather hilarious. If you have managed to not figure out the whole point of this blog, I assume through functional illiteracy, I am cooking my way through the cookbook The Joy of Cooking. See those numbers in the parenthesis? That is the page number the recipe appears on in The Joy of Cooking. Sometimes I link the recipe back to the very website you quoted, although I haven't gone back and done it for all recipes. I don't post the recipe because THAT would be thievery, IMO, since you should just go buy the book yourself.

And, if you feel the need to "out" me, feel free. Josh and I enjoyed the laugh this morning.

  1. What?? Someone massively fails at reading comprehension...

  2. Wow how simple do you have to be to make that comment. I would also like to thank Josh for the laugh.

    Welcome back


I love comments! Please let me know what you think!

I'm really sorry, I hate comment moderation, but I've been getting annoying Japanese spam messages lately so...comment moderation has started.
