commodorified: A cartoon of a worried looking woman in a chef's hat (cooking for people who don't)

Solicit or offer ideas, cheer each other on, ask for or offer data or resources, team up and do a group-authored post or a mini-carnival cluster of posts, find a beta, be a beta ...

I would like to say: I am not at all worried about avoiding duplication, and suggest that nobody else be either.

If eight people do posts on How To Cook Eggs, they will all be different, they will all be right and useful, and each of them will be somebody's absolute most useful and favourite post of the whole carnival.

Carry on!

I'm thinking another along those lines, cooking for people with some money but lacking time, energy, organization, info --basically suffering from "I don't know where to start it's all too overwhelming!" inspired by the pleas for help from my mother-in-law who was never very organized about food to start with and still isn't now that she's primary caregiver for 2 school-age grandkids and has assorted cognitive and mood disorders which occasionally escape the control of medication.

Betas who have personal experience of cognitive/emotional state interfering with food security would be very much appreciated, because my personal experience of being mentally or emotionally unable to deal with obtaining food has been much, much smaller than my experience of not having time or money or access. (Except inasmuch as not having had access or permission fucked up my mental/emotional state; that's a separate thing.)

What I'm thinking is along the lines of: read a draft of my post before it goes live and give me feedback about it based on your personal experience.
