Hello TQC.

What are your favourite simple recipes of dishes with pork, chicken or fish? Please give them to me, the easier to cook the better.


(I have started living on my own this year, and long story short, I don't like the dishes my mother cooks, they are far too rich for me. So it took me more than half a year to want to cook anything on my own. Well, I do eat sausages, and other pre-prepared "meat" dishes from time to time, but I don't think that counts.)

Bad news, you can only ever use one or the other, in all circumstance, forever. Which one?

Plastic cup/bowl/plate and cutlery. The very cheap stuff, it's small, thin and absurdly flimsy
19(43.2%)
Moderately oversized pewter cup/bowl/plate and cutlery. It's very heavy, somewhat cumbersome and the cutlery is slightly too big for your mouth.

humane groundhog trapping

why does the groundhog keep taking the bait but not getting trapped?

i set the bait behind (and also right on) the thing he has to step on to get trapped.
i trapped TWO squirrels so i know the trap works and i am rigging it correctly.
he has eaten all of the fruit and got off scott free FOUR times! does anyone have any tips?

(it's a no kill trap, don't worry!
He is just burrowing under my deck and i want to find him a new home far far away from mine!)

Edited to add: I caught him! Thank you for all of the advice!
