MacGyver meals

After getting way too off topic in another thread i'm making a thread to talk about all the amazing tricks you know for preparing a meal with limited ingredients or things you normally wouldn't cook dinner with.


Here's my recipe for:




Step 1:


Go to the local shop and buy some handmade dumplings. You're Macgyver now so you have to use your environment... and paperclips to your advantage.


Step 2:


Put the dumplings in the microwave in some boiling water... bonus points if you boiled the water with jetfuel or something else really cool. I was out of jet fuel so i used a Kettle. Cook on high for 8 minutes. 


Step 3:


Drain the dumplings from the water with an elaborate and unecessary system of spatulas. Fry in a sandwich toaster for a couple of minutes or untill nice and crispy.


Step 4:

Fashion a crappy fork out of a paperclip. You have real forks... but you're MacGyver... so paperclips.



I will update this with pics after i do this again.




Plx share your macgyver cooking skills.






Re: MacGyver meals

Huh, so you weren't kidding about your MacGyver cooking skills @Ben-RO Smiley Tongue I'm going to have to start eating with paperclips - forks are far too obvious an eating utensil.


(Additionally, who is MacGyver? Is this one of those pop culture references that goes straight over my head?)

Re: MacGyver meals

Well @roseisnotaplant MacGyver was a TV show in the 80's and early 90's where a guy with a bad hairdo known as a Mullet would solve lots of problems with random every day objects around him. He's a perfect metaphor for ReachOut although we have slightly better haircuts here. I remember watching him when i was super little Smiley Tongue


This is Macgyver defusing a nuclear missile with a paperclip




Oh and he didn't like to use guns, although I'm pretty sure there was a bunch of times when he made guns out of other stuff... for some reason that's fine.



Re: MacGyver meals

This really isn't a Magyver cooking skill but it's something.
My mates and I went camping a few weeks ago and someone forgot the cutlery (not me....) so we ate our dinner with the spare tent pegs Smiley Tongue

Re: MacGyver meals

Totally not the point of this thread, but everytime I hear MacGyver I think of Patty and Selma from The Simpsons Smiley Tongue

Re: MacGyver meals
