Well, a week and a half later I've finally bought pasties and jelly. Pasty was very satisfying, although I was a little disturbed by the contents (I hadn't realised they contain ~70% of saturated fat RDA).

Jelly will be made tomorrow :antipasta:

We had steak for me, pasta salad for UDK#1 and watermelon for UDK#2. We also had turnip greens, but none of us like them. I eat them anyway.

The others polished off some ice cream cones, but none for me. :cry:

Recently polished off another pair of Burritos of Doom. Observe:

The Burrito of Doom is now assembled, except for the Tabasco:

Now it's ready for consumption:

Now that's living right. :grin: :zen:

Ouch, ET. That looks inedible…

Hubby baked some jacket potatoes while we were at the hospital and when we got back he roasted a chicken* (at least, I assume it was a chicken - anyone seen Calico Jack?). We had them with carrots, broccoli and his special sage gravy. Yum. I love my hubby! :love:

*He had to cook in stages as our oven has packed up and our combination microwave isn't big enough to do everything at once.

PK, I was going to condemn you as a philistine for your disdain of black olives, but your adobo chicken has saved you from that unspeakable fate.

I can haz chikken adobo?

Alton Brown on black olives wrote:As for black canned california ripe olives, well, when people tell me they don't like olives, I suspect it's because they've been eating these. Their distinct lack of flavors stems from the fact that they're not actually preserved in a brine or by salt, but by cooking that comes from the canning process. Once they're opened, they're as susceptible to spoilage as any other canned good. The only thing really distinct about this kind of olive is the color, that shiny black, which comes courtesy of oxidation and a dip in a ferrous glutamate solution. yum.

You got something against ferrous glutamate?

Are you sure you didn't forget to capitalize that O, and then leave off an apostrophe?

Why doesn't all that iron make Popeye rust? Because he's regularly dipped in Olyve's oil :blush:

Sorry. Anyway, today I made bangers and mash and it turned out really well. Normally I'd dissuade anyone from eating my cooking but this was absolutely brilliant. Was mashed potato with onion, garlic, bacon and mustard, made with butter and milk, along with proper sausages and lots of gravy, made with gravy powder, oxo cube and a bit of red wine. it was surprisingly nice, as in I wouldn't have minded paying £8 as a pub lunch.

It turns out I can occasionally cook dishes that people other than me are prepared to consume :shocked:

Yestiddy we had our first batch of locally grown corn for this year. From a farm about two miles away, I got half a dozen ears. Accompanied by shrimp with triple-horseradish cocktail sauce and a bottle of homemade Chianti. Man, we eat good.
