How can we order lunch?

My company (75 people) orders lunch from the same place every day. The receptionist sends out an email to everyone in the morning, and people respond with what they want for lunch. She then takes all of these food requests and calls them in to the sandwich shop. At the end of the day, she then has to tally up how much everyone spent. It then comes off of your paycheck. How can we make this easier? It takes a considerable amount of the receptionists time! [more inside]

Iranian recipe for deep fried, stuffed chilies?

Help me discover this stuffed green chillies recipe. While in India I read about a dish of stuffed green chillies, but never, ever managed to trace it or even to find out it's name. This is what I know about this dish: *It is Iranian, and can be bought from Iranian coffee shops in Hyderabad. *The green chilies are cleaned of their seeds and stuffed with a paste that includes cardamom and other spices. *The stuffed chilies are deep fried in oil. *The result is sublime. I would like to know the name of this dish, and if possible a recipe. Thank you chili lovers wherever you are.

Indian yoghurt dumpling dish thing

Dey bareh (sp?). My Kashmiri wife is looking for a restaurant in London that serves this dish - basically cornflour/chickpea-flour dumplings in yoghurt. Any ideas? We live in Bloomsbury, so anywhere near there would be good.

Induction cooktops - go or no go?

Has anyone had experience with single plate counter top induction hot plates such as these? If there are engineers out there is there some reason why these units shouldn't work as well as inbuilt units? If people have had experiences with induction cooktops in general that would also be appreciated. I've looked around and couldn't find many reviews except those on Amazon.

What did this mouthwash do to my taste buds?

I used Crest Pro Health alcohol-free mouthwash about an hour and a half ago. Now I'm eating McDonald's and I cannot taste the salt on the fries -- in fact, I made my roommate eat some of them to make sure I was not crazy, as they tasted sweet to me, like they'd been honey-roasted. Furthermore, the cheese on my ketchup-free burger tastes weirdly like ketchup. What the heck did that mouthwash do to my taste buds, and is there anything I can do to undo it quickly? I put a pinch of salt directly on my tongue, and it tastes just like sugar!

Why do orange chicken vapors make me cough?

This question is about chinese fast-food orange chicken (the deep-fried amorphous nuggets with a thick tangy glaze). When I take a deep smell from a hot bowl of this chicken, or hold it in my mouth and breathe around it, some sort of irritating vapor makes me cough (or stings my nose). Just one cough – enough to keep it from getting into my lungs. Once the chicken cools down (to mouth temperature, even) it doesn't happen. It reminds me of the reaction I've had sniffing acid in lab – could it be lots of volatile vinegar? I've experienced this with fast-food chicken in more than one college food court.
