    Salty Snacks

    Jc's Bacon & Ham flavoured Stripes. They taste of neither. I limit myself to maybe a bag a year. Australias version of Frazzles I guess (If you ever ate crisps in the UK in the 90s). Glorious. Painfully salty. Complete garbage. Delicious.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Yes sorry, I wasn't very clear. Australian Slaw is much the same - cabbage, carrot, onion, lots of mayo, occasional sneaked addition of capsicum. In the case of my fish and chips it is simply hidden UNDER the last bit of fish and the salad - along with a whole pickled beetroot! I recently ate another sample of my bland curry in my mission to declutter the freezer. As I was tucking in my husband asked 'why are YOU eating that?' I shrugged and blamed the ton of food I'd managed to store and his not so subtle suggestion I deal with it. He said 'Yeah but that's the child safe curry you made to freeze for 'small dude' dinner emergencies in case you get slammed at work?' Mystery solved. Label... Label.... must Label.

    Breakfast! 2018

    Pancakes for the lad. Bacon wrapped in a Crepe, Eggs & Beans (ruined with BBQ sauce as is the Australian way 😪 😀) for the Man. Fresh Orange Juice (and leftover pancakes) for Moi.

    @rotuts Thanks so Much! Although I am afraid I will disappoint you, the lamb had three hours and was not in the slightest rare. I find the fattier lamb shoulder works better low and slow for my tastes but I am definitely with you on the pinkness preferred for most other lamby cuts.

    Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder, Gravy with Pan juices and Red Wine, Roasties, Yorkies plus unpictured Veg. Not bad for a Tuesday work night... even if dinner was far too late and the child had to be made emergency frozen Pizza when the complaining got too much! 😏

    Garlic & Cheese Pizza Bread, Chicken Tenders, Breaded Camembert. For health, and to ensure this meal was balanced, a Margarita & a Lychee Martini.

    All shared three ways. Apart from the sweet potato fries. My son is in the same camp as me it would seem - sweet potato is out. Prawn Crackers, Beef Pho, " Pork Bahn Mi ", Fries.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    I was delivered lunch to the office today. My husband grabbed (Australian) fish and chips from the pub in an attempt to spend some time together before I got sucked back in. It was really good (and huge) for $12. I managed one bit of fish and some coleslaw before life took over, but my son had the rest for his Tea.

    Oh I can Please note the qualifier 'Expected' - this clearly was not a Thai Curry or anything close! It merely looked that way when I pulled the unlabelled container from the depths of the chest freezer. I freely admit I have no idea what this was meant to be - only that it was not great! (I made it. It sucked. Froze it so as not to be wasteful. Picked it for lunch. Still sh×t).

    Freezer find Al Desko. I can identify chicken, kale, capsicum and the sort lack of any real taste that has me coming to the conclusion these were meals stashed in the freezer in the hope we would loose power for days! I had expected it to be a Thai style curry in its frozen state. Noone to blame but myself. 🙃

    Yorkie with Gravy. Lacked the inclination to do any of the other components of the traditional Sunday Roast. But the Yorkie itch had to be scratched. And while I'm admitting my laziness, I may as well admit I'm a sometime member of the Bisto club.

    Potato Bake for dinner. I know one traditionally serves Potato Bake with ... well something. I am not a traditionalist, and Potato = Life.

    When I was younger, I was petrified of the Tube. So whenever I had to do anything in London, my Dad would meet me at Waterloo and take me to where I needed to be. I was always early and always bought a baguette from one of the vendors, they cost £a kidney, for either egg mayo and Bacon or Pork Sausage. I didn't have the Cress to really take me back.

    Hirekatsu & Tonkatsu Sauce. As with all of my forays into food of other cultures I've never tried authentic versions of - If I've really cocked it up, refer to my working title: Panko Pork Snitz, Naked Slaw & Bbq + Sauce 😁. I realise it would look all the more authentic if I had sliced the pork and drizzled the sauce. However every time I do that, I listen to the monologue about how my husbands not a child and still has all his teeth and can cut his own meat .... 🙄
