I made these last week as a test run for later in the month. I took them to work where they evaporated while my back was turned! I think more test runs are needed to see if this is a repeatable result.

Probably on par with the response I got when I suggested electric BBQ's are pointless because most folk already have an oven and a hob of some form.

No Frills has chicken leg w/ back attached for $2/lb so I decided to make some witch's brew marinade. I slashed each leg about 5 times so it knows I'm serious, then mixed it in well and locked it up in a plastic tub in the fridge for all day, and I can just put it in the oven when I get home from work. The gochujiang paste gives it a decent kick so I call it Korean style bbq. Don't rub your eyes.

I didn't get the chili-garlic sauce in the pic, and it was 1st thing in.

Attention catching headlines.

Heavily processed food like ready meals and ice-cream linked to early death
"Two major studies add to body of evidence against foods made with industrial ingredients" runs the sub-heading, followed by the opening paragraph.
People who eat large amounts of heavily processed foods, from breakfast cereals and ready meals to muffins and ice-cream, have a greater risk of heart attack, stroke and early death, according to two major studies.
Hard hitting stuff. Scary even. What constitutes large amounts, cornflakes every morning?

But then, later in the report...
The study, does not prove that ultra-processed foods cause disease. Nor does the effect appear particularly large, even in the most enthusiastic junk food consumers. The results suggest that 277 cases of cardiovascular disease would arise each year in 100,000 heavy consumers of ultra-processed foods, versus 242 cases in the same number of low consumers.
Even the Guardian does it...
(this could be a media topic rather than food, I suppose)

Always read the labels, all processed foods contain large amounts of sugar and salt, plus a list of chemicals few people knowing what they are.
Large amounts of sugar and salt are harmful. leading to high blood pressure and diabetes. It's only later in life you suffer the consequences.

Does anyone have preferred methods of serving up their meals and/or eating them in a particular way?

Some excerpts from another thread:
Do you ever sit down to something like a roast dinner - meat, carrots, spuds, something green - and not know where to start? Sometimes I look and think no, the spuds should be where the carrots are and the meat should be there....
I know where on the plate I like to put the assorted elements of my breakfast or dinner for my convenience and enjoyment as well. I know someone, however, who is over the top and has to eat his pizza in clockwise order beginning at 12 o'clock, and it drives him mad if you disrupt that

If gravy is involved, it must never, ever, go over the green/orange vegetables. On the meat only please.

Good one. How about gravy with fish?
I had fish and chips eat-in a couple of weeks ago and I was offered gravy.

From the outside, always...

I probably cook around 75% of our meals as one-dish, don't have to ponder too often on placement issues, so main + 'vehicle' will go side by side, the exception being pasta below, sauce on top.

Multi-item meals here are normally for family and guests, so the dishes go to the table and everyone does their own thing with the serving.

I can't think of many things more disgusting than gravy with fish'n'chips, yuk!

Through the window? Through the letterbox? A long straw from the roof and down the chimney?

Or do you just mean you don't swim in the soup like that fly?
