Well, hubs still out there, blowing up dead dinos and ruining the planet etc etc. Covid finally got its Visa and came to QLD so we're back to polystyrene in our living boxes for tea. 

 

Some times it hits. Like this Chinese inspired pork and veg dish.

And sometimes it's Spew.

And the world plods on. Stealth toe after stealth toe.

"Hit" vs. "Spew" are inspired choices for the ends of the food-quality spectrum. :D

Finding foodie context... 

Whilst testing varied hopp and grain based drinks, hub snapped a pic of the sky. In it you can see 2 blocks of 3 "living boxes" where he eats / sleeps and it looks so ... well beautiful. Skys been real expressive in QLD lately.

That sky is gorgeous.  What is with the chili?  The grain/rice looking stuff?

Okay I was playing this game alone. 

But then I remembered I have some buddies who might like to play too! 

 

Round one of "Wtf is lunch today?" 

The WTF in no way relates to the quality of food, could be packaging, could be camera technician.

 

However, the question remains.. 😂

Hmmmmm......steak and butternut squash?

Butternut squash and pork chops.

 

I lean more toward beef than pork, based on the color. Pork would probably be more economical, though. Looks like there's some mashed potato in there too, just below the squash.

Im giving this round to @Kim Shook! It was Roast beef, pumpkin and potato bake with gravy (apparently). I doubt it was Bisto, that exlir is expensive over here! 

 

Todays dinner was meat loaf and veg and more unidentified gravy. Apple juice unfortunately, not scotch.

I thought lasagna and potatoes like @Shelby.  At least something layered and topped with something that was broiled (do you say grilled?).  I feel like those bits and pieces scattered over the "lasagna" are the result of careless serving and are the innards of the "lasagna".

Yes! It was Potato wedges and pasta bake. Not eadible apparently. 

 

Now guys. Should I be worried? I'm usually not concerned about the "Gentlemans Club" Saturday Nights. But. There is only 2 of them left and.. well... this looks like a date right ?!? 🤔😂😂
