Ribs tonight - done in the slow cooker with a rub from the Sticky Fingers and Tenderloins cookbook - finished with whatever barbeque sauce the kids like. I like doing ribs this way because they always turn out so tender they virtually fall off the bone, and the rub is delicious - plus cleanup is easy. I'll add a big salad of mixed greens (baby spinach, baby kale, chard, arugula) with carrots, grape tomatoes, avocado, and some fresh uncooked corn sprinkled in. The corn is so sweet, it's like candy.

Going meat free this week (with no beans, lentils or mushrooms), so tonight is a new recipe. I just haven't decided if I want Cabbage and onion pasta or Mini Veggie lasagnas.

Yesterday was taco dip platter. Yep - I had taco dip for lunch.....and dinner......and lunch today (and possibly breakfast tomorrow)

Very disappointing pasta today.
I bought pre-made fresh ravioli and froze it. This has never affected taste or quality in my memory. But it was supposed to be chicken and chilli. Couldn't taste either. Just bland meh.

Mum said the sauce, to which I added turkey mince as a healthier option, was very good. But again to me it was just meh.
Needed to whack up the Italian herbs and dump plenty hot sauce in there.
In fact I made it blander than usual for Mum's sake, and also because I thought the pasta would carry the flavour.

Too bloody hot in the kitchen tonight. I was sweating like a fat girl in a chipshop.
Three pans going at the very end (pasta and sauce for us, peas for Dad) and the microwave. Dad wanted a microwave lasagne rather than real food. With peas.
Still he spent the afternoon in hospital (see Upsetting thread) so what he wanted, he got.

Going to cobble together a faux-Caesar Salad for Mum and me tomorrow.
I'll cook some chicken earlier in the day so we can eat in a reasonably cool environment.
Yes I know I'm precious about them when restaurants deviate from the proper recipe, but they charge for serving it, I don't. I might even let Mum have cucumber in hers

I went with the carmelized cabbage and onion pasta. It was surprisingly good!

Those look amazing!
My kinda cupcake.

Last night's pizza. Mum's been craving it since we had an advertising leaflet through the door (these things work on simple but greedy minds like ours.) Dads wasn't having any of it. He had a meat pie in the fridge, and they had no money anyway.

Until Mum & I decided to go halfsies and the order was ready to be placed. He conceded sharing. Good job he did, we still had to bin 1/2 a slice of pizza and a piece of garlic bread!

Chav food, but oh so good when you rarely have it.

Quote:
Chav, (/ˈtʃæv/ CHAV) is a stereotype and pejorative epithet used in Britain.[1][2] The stereotype was popularised in first decade of the 21st century by the British mass media to refer to youth subculture of the unemployed precariat in the United Kingdom.[3]

Etymology

The term has its origins in the Romani word chavi, meaning "child".[4][5] The 2010 book Stab Proof Scarecrows surmised that "chav" was an abbreviation for "council housed and violent";[6] however, this is a backronym.
Ohhhhh....

Tonight SonofV and I will have Iftar with W and his family. I expect there will be salad, falafels, sage tea.

Iftar:

Iftar (Arabic: إفطار‎ ifṭār "sunset meal"), refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast at the time of sunset, right at the time of maghrib adhan before Maghrib Prayer, during the Islamic month of Ramadan.
