Are Thesaurus' still a thing?

 

Most certainly. I worked on a famous one and have many thesaurus engineer friends!

I don't think that's what he needs. Dry meat is typical of this kind of canteen food. Cooked in advance and held until serving time. I'm surprised they get the vegetables OK.

Thesauruses. No question.

 

When words from other languages become naturalised into Englsh, they almost always take on regular English inflections. There are thousands of examples.

Pluralising a fully naturalised word (since the 16 century) using obsolete forms from dead languages is just pretentious.

 

Latin died for good reasons!

This little Piggy had Meatloaf, with roast carrot, skin on mash and peas. He really liked the carrot and the meatloaf was good with its gravy dousing. Hes not too keen on skin on mash but at least it proves its real potato imo.

So I was granted a picture from the "Finer Things" gentlemans club. A charcuterie board made entirely from camp food. I actually think its okay! A lil bit kids party but hey, at least they have a sense of humor and are social 🙂🧀

Crackers, kabana I think, roast beef, pepperoni, 3x cheerios (cold red hot dogs sort of, also known as little boys 😬🤷‍♀️), mixed fruit and nuts? Tasty Cheese, maybe Brie?  And Rum.

Lamb chops, mash, pumpkin and beans. 

Featuring the fantastic Aussie Thong Tan. Different to most other Thong tans world wide.

Chicken Curry, Mash, Mixed Greens & Veg, after a very long day. Ironically they had a "safety reset" this AM which means they go over best practices, probably due to a industry death down south. However this put them very behind and they are short staffed so lunch wasn't until 3pm (they start at 430am) and then they worked late. So i'm sure that although it looks like poop. Its probably (hopefully) a big warm hug. 

In turtle killing plastic.

Hello Boys and Girls. 

Husbandio has been off with a chest infection hence the silence. He has come back to a "weird" dinner set up. Its now " self serve " and they have run out of polystyrene boxes - this is the current solution. 

I have not asked him what it is yet. Thought might be fun to guess 😬😂

I think maybe pork chop? And Veg?

Yeah, I guessed pork chop but from one of those weird Australian chop cuts that don't look like a little t-bone

It was a chicken leg! And wedges. 

I am afraid our series is in trouble. They have enforced eating in the mess if you want a hot meal - no more takeaway boxes to your room. Its going to take a lot for me to convince him to take a public food picture ☹☹

It was a rooster leg.

 

I've enjoyed this series. Wire him up with a hidden dinner-cam.

The covid-safe reasoning behind that eludes me. And, I'm sure, you and many more.

If we've learned anything from covid its that when morons are in charge they make moronic rules.
