Found myself a cracking bit of brisket for our supper tonight. The aroma that floated through the house gave promise to it being a flavoursome bit of beef and on eating it, it certainly more than stood up to the promise it had given to my olfactory senses whilst slowly roasting. The dogs got to clean off all the plates before going in the dishwasher, so did not miss out on tasting the source of the smell that had glued them to sentry duty by the oven for the previous few hours.
When eating I commented about none of the children yet to declare themselves a vegetarian. One of our daughters jokingly said, "I could be a vegatarian, Mum." Knowing her love for cheese, I replied jokingly , "Really, in this house if you want to be a vegetarian, you will have to be an all out vegan. I'll have none of this eating Dairy products, eating fish or chicken, but you are a vegetarian rubbish. Those people are just fussy eaters. Nearly as bad as being an agnostic in my books." You see if you eat Dairy products, meat is a by product of producing dairy. If you don't eat meat for ethical reasons, the only vegetarians that are true and I respect as so, are vegans.
I've found that often as not with children when you hear the words from the parents when they visit your children, "Oh, by the way he/she is vegetarian" is code for they are a fussy eater and often as not they don't eat vegetables either, but anything with a high sugar content their away. So a more apt title for their child is a "sweetarian", because the whole premise of being a vegetarian is not that you just don't eat meat, but you also actually eat vegetables.
The children have been busy making more Halloween stuff and our oldest daughter was trying to take some photos of their efforts and caught me on camera seemingly levitating in the corner of a photo. My secret is out. Yep. I'm a witch. Lol
A few photos of the Poundlane pack. I think I'm having a monochrome phase.
