And then I just have plate/cutlery to do afterwards
she even washes her pans and stuff before she starts eating and kind of expects us to do it too but she can bore off.
Otherwise, depends how lazy I feel, might be the next day, might not.
She didn't say anything though. She's probably going to poison me or put some rollerblades at the top of the stairs.
The rollerblades thing might be fun though, I liked being dragged down them in a duvet.
I keep an undisciplined house. I like it that way.
plate will be put in dishwahser. Pans will be left to saok straight after cooking and then put in dishwasher with plates before bed. Unless I'm really tired/ pissed, in which case they could stay there for days.
and she does the dishes as soon as she's told to — AMIRITE FELLAS?!
if you know what I mean...
We're talking about robluvsnic's mum's Sunday roasts, right?
Sometimes two or three days later once a nice pile of dirty plates and pots has built up.
I don't agree with people who leave plates and glasses cluttering their bedroom floor or whatever.
weeknights - a couple of hours
weekend - probably do it the next morning
Who the hell do you think you all are? The fucking queen?
Now I'm living with the missus we've got into the routine of one person cooks, one person washes up. I hate it. She only ever cooks things that use a million pans and she insists on using measuring spoons and sieves (fucking sieves!) all the time, whereas I like one-pot casseroles and stews and the like. Oh well.
at one point it became a war of attrition where both of us would make increasing ellaborate meals until a truce was called. It was a delicious war though.
and then when you've finished chuck a load of flour over loads of pots and pans. It's the key to a happy home.
my ex (christ...) girlfriend used to make us do one or the other. its so boring. and yes, she would use loads of pans and i would use none and....ok i'll stop there.
My old hoysemate used to cook if we were eating together and I'd wash up. She was a better cook than me so it made sense.... apart from the fact that should would systematically try and use EVERY SINGLE COCKING PAN AND UTENSIL AS SHE WASN'T WASHING UP.
so we ate half on the day I cooked it and she washed up the plates and the rice pan (I'm too skillful at rice to need a sieve). I'd already washed up the chopping board and all that shit.
the next day she warmed up the rest of the curry and made rice (with a pan and a sieve) and I had to wash up the curry pot! I'm checking the break clause in our tenancy agreement, it's unacceptable.
'oh but its left over, how can i wash it up now?'
PUT IT IN SOME TUPPERWARE OR A BOWL, THEN PUT THAT IN THE FRIDGE, THEN SCRUB THAT PAN OUT AND THEN GET DOWN GIVE ME 50.
Stuff like washing up the chopping board while waiting for pasta to boil, that sort of thing.
After eating there's usually just a plate and cutlery left, maybe one saucepan if I didn't have time. Got to keep up with that shit in a shared house, it's the considerate way.
we had a deal though - i wash up if mrs ccb cooks and vice-versa.
i like getting it out of the way - we've got a really small kitchen so it clutters quite easily (even with only three people's washing up in it)
i like this flat, there's a relaxed yet efficient take on cleaning things.
plates, meh, later that evening or next day if i'm feeling super lazy.
At boyfriends: I cook, he cleans. THEMS THE RULES.
you are the type of person that caused the banking crisis
and I would produce the rule book to each new boyfriend i obtain
i'm not a fucking student.
I fucking HATE washing up.
Was going to say something about not being a student. meths has it covered.
I'm talking about about when I eat a meal at home / someone else's home.
I eat the sandwich in the car on the way home and just brush the crumbs off when I get out </playa>
and then went to eat the sandwich on the sofa WITH THE CHOPPING BOARD.
This is terrible behaviour isn't it? I was right to beat him, wasn't I?
Chopping board on the lap to save third degree burns on my legs.
oh good my fish and chips has been served on a chopping board!
I can't stop thinking about vinegar going everywhere.
but won't make your bed after you've slept/jizzed in it. YOU MAKE ME SICK.
Ibbott don't want to defend him though...
I'm not the maverick I had imagined myself to be.
You were right to beat him.
it was a large, white plastic Ikea chopping board.
I was right to beat him.
your boyfriends a trend setter.
served in the saucepan they are cooked in
loads of guardian food critics would be masterbating all over each other.
What you gonna do?
burn it down?
The guy was like Renee.
And he gave me free booze, so like, no, yeah?
It's a sandwich, not a bloody four course meal. And he's just eating on the sofa. Why the hell would you take it off one flat crumb-catcher and put it onto another? I mean, I probably wouldn'd do this because I'd use the plate as the chopping board instead of the other way around, but still. You're probably the sort of person who'd object to using the handle of your cereal spoon to stir your morning tea.
Plates were invented for a reason or we'd all just eat straight off the table/floor.
Handle of my cereal spoon? How do you squeeze the teabag, you monster?
Thats really manly. How tall are you again?
You don't really do this, do you?
I haven't had a cuppa yet today. Might go and make one now. I'll report back on the method used.
so I used one of those to mash the teabag, then just used my fingers to pick it out of the mug and carry it over to the bin. Surely this is normal - lifting it out with the spoon would involve lifting some of the liquid and then having to do an egg-and-spoon number across the kitchen, right?
I then used the handle of the teaspoon to cut myself some cheese to have with it. Touch me.
Plates aren't a flat surface, they have a ridge to prevent crumb loss. This country.
satirising the affectations of the middle classes
and squirts a big blob of ketchup onto the board to use as a dip. It gets all in the grooves and leaves an orange stain.
HE DOES WHAT?
Right, thats it.
I like to do it straight away, but not to leap up as soon as I've finished eating. That way lies indigestion. I like to have a little sit-down first. As an added bonus, my boyfriend then normally does the washing up while I'm having my sit-down.
but i often, and i do mean often complete the washing up (minus the plates of course) before i've even eaten the meal.
I'm waiting for stuff to cook, what shall I do?
Might stare into the dishwater and think about concrete. OH WAIT, might as well get that washing up out of the way.
you're not gonna want to wash up to help their job.
All the fun of cooking + none of the boringness of cleaning
and let me tell you, that isnt fun for the other person on the end of your web of deceit and they will end up murdering you.
Free dinner (I pay when cooking)
Nice food ON PLATES (I always give him bigger portions as he is man and I cook pretty good dinners)
Gets to sit on the computer for half an hour whilst I'm cooking it
and all he has to do in return is wash up the stuffs.
because the threat of washing up is hanging over everything.
If not, he should try crying to the internet about it. Theres a lot of people who could understand.
I'd feel too guilty about/tied down by this rule.
Did you wash up when I cooked you that delicious meal and made you various cocktails? DID YOU FUCK.
Come round mine in November and I will cook you something fab and you won't have to wash up (ibbott will be there to do that)
I would never let someone wash up in my own house.
OOH YES. Actually are we doing the cooking thing? I could do with some free meals. Cheers.
If people don't mind coming out to mine. Its not too far though and people can stop over in my lounge.
It'll be the start of Come Dine With Me.
*gigs that finish after bedtime*
whilst CG sits on the internet trolling hard
Whoever cooks makes loads of mess. You have more respect if you have to do the washing up.
I'm imagining you cooking and then accidently starting to wash up a wooden spoon before realising what you're doing and being all like; http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b285/_darcy_/job.jpg
I start washing up and then go 'WHAT AM I DOING?' then drop everything.
Because it just makes sense. No other reason.
but then might leave it until there are no plates or pots left to use. I'd rather clean stuff on my own terms rather than some strict nazi like routine. doesnt feel like a chore then and i lead a fuller and happier life for it.
you really, really are.
But I just want to make sure people are rinsing before they wash up?
and if we're going that mental, shouldn't you rinse *after* the wash too?
Never put a soapy plate on the draining board. Never.
At this point, is it more efficient just to replace the crockery service after each meal?
*scans thread and adds 23 names to the "may actually be pocketmouse" spreadsheet*
I don't like putting my hands in washing up bowls. So I am probably screwing the environment but hopefully satisfying your rinsing requirement.
YOU ARE THE WORST PEOPLE
having to put your hands in the dirty water is proper nasty. Also my housemates wash stuff in the sink with the plug in, and don't rinse them after, which is just mental (why bother washing them at all?)
But then again when I wipe my arse I always leave the tissue on the side to clear up later on (or maybe after the weekend) so it kinda balances out...
there is loads of time to clean pans, utensils etc. Unless your whole meal is done in the last minute on the hob obvs. I always take the manky plates and pans and at least rinse them and stack them straight after eating, I use an old scrubbing brush to get the crap off. Then you can wash them whenever because they are essentially clean.
The worst thing you can do is stick everything in the sink to fester and go manky. It doesn't help.
