Overcooked

Overcooked Meat (150°) - Slightly pink center

I don’t know what event happened in my life that caused me to have to cook my food so much, that it removes a lot of the flavor, but I’d love to figure it out. Take meat, for example. Most people I know, eat their meat rare or medium rare, but I’ve never been in a restaurant with someone and had them order it any more cooked than that. Me? My entire life, I’ve ordered my meat medium well. I can’t tell you how many crazy looks I get from people, and how many comments I’ve had people make over the years, but I’m beginning to see a pattern.

Overcooked Ramen

When I cook Ramen noodles, I cook them several minutes longer than SS does. He always comments about how gross it is that I eat overcooked noodles, but to me, they don’t seem overcooked. I don’t like stiff pasta, what can I say.

Overcooked Garlic Bread

We make garlic bread often, because we eat a lot of pasta, and it just goes really well together. That being said, SS always has to leave mine in a little bit longer than his, because I like my crust really crispy. The middle part is aaaaaalmost hard, but not quite. Close.

Upon writing this blog post, I have come to find out that I’m not the only person that eats their food overcooked. In fact, I found this article from 2007 that states overcooking your food can be dangerous, even lead to Cancer. Apparently, eating overcooked pasta can increase blood sugar. Hmm. Perhaps I need to start rethinking some decisions in regard to food. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to all-of-a-sudden go on some healthy eating food kick, but I will stop overcooking my noodles and bread.

Are there any foods that you overcook? Or do you undercook?
