Yesterday I was outside with the children and thinking about what to fix for supper, when I thought how nice it was outside, and maybe we could have a BBQ. So I pre-cooked some beef ribs, knowing that if Bob worked late I could always freeze them for another time. About 4pm I needed to know if I should make something else for our dinner (sweet and sour pork) or not, so I called Bob to ask about it. He thought ribs sounded fine, and would be home before too long. He was home by 4:30. I think his brain went into hungry mode and whatever work needed to be finished up just got set aside. :-) So we had BBQ ribs, biscuits, salad, pineapple, and green beans. The children had hotdogs instead of ribs, and they all knew they got the short end of the stick. To sweeten the deal, we moved the table and chairs out onto the patio and ate outside. It sure was fun.
I do not recommend RealArcade.com. The website is hard to navigate, and though you can redownload a game you've bought, you cannot make a copy of it or play it without an internet connection. Every 2 minutes you have to sign in again, and half the time the sign in page won't load.
I DO recommend Crisco brand pan coating spray. I grew up with Pam, and it's okay. I tried Mozolla and that was awful - stinky! Then I got Crisco and it doesn't smell at all; doesn't effect the taste; works great.
Oh, I mentioned pineapple with last night's dinner... When we were at Tesco the other day they had pineapples for 1GBP each (about $2) so we bought 3. They aren't the best ones ever, but they're okay. We also bought the store brand nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread) and it isn't anything like Nutella brand. I'm still in awe at the bread prices. A large loaf of whole wheat bread costs 39pence ($0.75) - in the States you'd be hard pressed to find a loaf for under $2. I also discovered that the canned fruit is a lot cheaper at Tesco than on base. I haven't eaten them yet, but they are also in juice rather than heavy syrup, which is hard to find and more expensive in the US.
We filled up with gas Sunday and it was about $85. Yikes!
Time to get the boys to work.
