So my roommate's pissed off at me because she absolutely can't stand the smell of my cooking. She's even gone so far as to declare our kitchen a TEMPORARY kitchen, not to be used for real, everyday cooking... Since I'm Chinese, I suppose my food has odors that she's unaccustomed to. There are all the dishes I've made so far: 1. Rice - regular white rice in a rice cooker, 50/50 long/short grain mix 2. Boiled meats in pot or pressure cooker. Sometimes meats like oxtail and tongue. Water + Rice Wine + Soy Sauce + Ginger + Green Onions + Meat -> boil until tender and eat with rice - is this dish weird? My parents cooked this way all the time. It's plain and simple but filling. 3. Pot Roast. Chuck + Water + Potatoes + Carrots + Onion Powder + Paprika + French Onion Soup -> Crock Pot 10 hrs or pressure cooker 1hr. - can this smell bad? 4. Wontons - homemade and frozen Boiled 5. Reheated meats in the microwave from the Asian grocery store like roast pork and roast duck. Again, I'm very very modest in what I can cook, and this is literally all there is. Can this small sample smell that bad to get my roommate pissed off? She's going on about she has to *tolerate* it every second of her existence. She even says she *tries* to live over at friends' houses to get away from the smell, and that it's taking a toll on her friendships too... WTF?
