    If they get hungry enough they’ll eat anything. Even Mona’s cooking.

    I love that comment in the first panel.

    So they’ve built up a tolerance to food poisoning? Seriously, in the name of self-preservation Mona should be permanently exempt from kitchen duty…..ever heard of burning water? Some persons just cannot be taught to cook….
    Or Mona could use a catering service on her cooking days and fool everyone with her dramatic expertise…….go figure!

    Either get takeout or make a salad Mona, you can get pre-made grilled chicken or steak from the store.

    Do something very simple and give it a fancy name, but not a French name because Pierre is French. I’ve seen this technique used many times. Also Mona, leave the alcohol out of the kitchen while cooking. The booze can be used to celebrate or forget the meal later.

    M. Smokey is so reassuring! Don’t fear the fire you may set, don’t fear the poisoning you may inflict. Just cook! Don’t worry; be happy!

    My Mom couldn’t boil water when she married my Dad but he taught her to cook and after 57 years she ain’t half bad. Still have to be careful when I go over to eat though.

    Unfortunately, it is possible to build up a tolerance to some types of food borne bacteria. It’s hardly worth it, though. In countries where food-borne pathogens are common, kids usually don’t survive to 5. Dysentary still claims many in developing nations. Even when a person acquires some immunity, there’s often permanent effects.
    As an example, a relative got a bad case of salmonella from working at KFC. Later on, he got salmonella again, but it only manifested as constant gut problems that lasted for years, but not nearly as severe. A specialist found that he was harboring salmonella, but it was mostly kept in check by the body. Antibiotics and he was cured.
