Cooking is hard. Not only that, but it takes a lot of time and energy to make a good meal. However, there are some cheat codes when it comes to making yourself some tasty food. In fact, there are plenty of meals that you can make using only three ingredients. Here are some examples, straight from Reddit.

u/moneybot13 asked: What is the best three ingredient meal?



Yum.

Black beans, rice, and one topping of choice. Always delicious.

LindsayMurray

I do salsa and maybe some cheese. Eat it with corn chips.

SamSondadjoke

The best meal.

Take a standard sized tumbler, add a splash of whiskey, then fill it the rest of the way up with whiskey. I call it "a big glass of whiskey".

utche96

Unless you consume the tumbler you're going to need a third ingredient.

Sorry, never mind. More whiskey.

Hey, that's cheating.

I can make a fantastic pizza by combining just cheese, tomatoes, and a fully prepared pizza.

Driver_goon

Tortilla, sauce, mozz cheese. It won't be great because theres no seasoning but it'll be pretty solid.

Me--Not--I

Nice.

Buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil.

donthinktoohard

I just learned that buffalo mozzarella is from buffalos.

CreationStepper

Wait 'till you hear about their wings.

Jay180

Both excellent choices.

Giphy

Pasta, butter, grated Parmesan cheese.

DareWright

Pasta, olive oil, garlic.

Jet-Streem

There's a lot you can do with eggs.

Eggs, salt, and pepper.

inflammable

Fried egg, white rice, and soy sauce is pretty great.

PINKDAYZEES

Poutine!

cdncutie79

I'm in the US and poutine is on my bucket list of foods to try! I feel like it wouldn't be the same if I just made it myself...

Love a good Spam.

Rice, Spam, eggs.

OMS6

Yeah Filipinos know: rice, sunny side egg, (any salty protein).

Spam, bacon, sausage, dried fish, hot dog even.

utflipmode

That sounds so good.

Cacio e pepe. Trust me man. Super easy and absolutely delicious. You only need spaghetti, pecorino (you can use parmesan) and black pepper. Thank me later!

FeministCriBaby

Sriracha is good on everything.

Giphy

Toast, poached egg and a drizzle of sriracha mayo.

If you're allowed to branch out, add some sliced avo and some crumbled Danish feta.

DukeyPookey

That actually sounds amazing.

Baguette, brie cheese & jalapeños.

Blondette1221

Pure magic.

Box of cake mix, 1/2 a cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs. Makes "cake box cookies" that taste just like your favorite cake. My favourite cookies!

ThriftAllDay

My mouth is watering.

Slightly more than 3 ingredients but...

Take some potatoes and cut them into quarters long ways. Then cut then into about 1/4 inch thick slices.

Sautee an onion in oil of your choice with garlic.

Add a little more oil, enough to cover the potatoes but not too much. Add potatoes and turn heat down to just above half.

Cover the shit out of them with salt and pepper, stir every 30 seconds to a minute adding more salt and pepper each time. Make sure to cover the potatoes in the stuff every time you stir them.

After cooking for about 20 minutes, or until desired softness, serve.

It's a family recipe. German fried potatoes. Wonderful side dish for any meal.

LeviathanOfHell

Ooooooh.

Udon noodles, tin of tuna and hot sauce.

My go to quick meal.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
