Let's get this thread back on topic. The correct answer is definitely gingers, as all South Park fans know.
My first ex-wife is a data point. That exotic dancer was more an auburn.

If I am purchasing meat for myself, I usually chose the cheapest option that is minimally-processed and relatively lean.

I also tend to prefer relatively leaner meat, but it's hard to resist to some prime ribs or a picanha.

"Picanha is a cut of beef called sirloin cap in the U.S. that is popular in Brazil. In the U.S. it is little known, but referred to as the rump cover, rump cap or coulotte."

All that I get out of that is remembering how to pronounce nh.

I didn't remember how it's called in English, but have seen some references to it as "rump steak". But anyway, "rump cap" might be the most accurate, since it's close to "tapa de cuadril" as the Argentinians and Uruguayans call it.

It's roughly like pronouncing ņ en espaņol.

Huh. I thought it was more like gn in italiano

I once substituted for a junior high Spanish class. I wrote Senhor Xist on the board to make some point about learning Spanish and being able to understand other languages, but I spent the day trying to get junior high boys to stop saying "Sen-hor," which was about as effective as every other time I substituted.

Adults are not supposed to be called into the principal's office...

All of that sounds great, and even more delicious when accompanied by cow or pig. Chicken is among my least favorite since it lacks flavor. It can be made to be tasty, but that takes effort in a subject that I have negative interest in. Cooking is like torture to me. I'm not good at it, and when what feels like extreme effort to me produces subpar results, I just get frustrated.

I've tried 3 times to make chicken pad thai, but they always turned out less than the worst restaurant pad thai I've had. That said, I have been successful with sushi, which is easy to make considering no cooking is involved (rice maker makes rice).

If I could figure out how to make the "Oregon burrito" from Muchas Gracias, I'd be one fat man.

Perhaps it's better I don't have any skill and lack interest.

Sure, which is why I'm an omnivore. All those are good, but variety is even better :-)
