What's for Dinner, Wed., May 12, 2021

Starting off with a plate of cold shrimp & fish, sauces, sliced Persian cucumbers with red onion, and crackers with cilantro pesto.

Next up is a bowl of arugula-parmiggiano-reggiano ravioli. I cut baby arugula and dill to cover the bottom of the plate and drizzled olive on it; over that I put the ravioli and sprinkled more baby arugula and dill.

Dessert: strawberry shortcake. Whipped cream, yum. My fave and it's a very light dessert.

Cherry kombucha to drink.

6. Leftovers

Sharp Cheddar cheese and crackers
A banana
Spareribs with a less sweet sauce than usual (Vinegar, mustard and pepper are the main flavors)
Baked potato with beef chili from a can (TJ likes it on hotdogs) and a dollop of sour cream.
Steamed broccoli

FLFC has been alternating snacking and sleeping all day. He didn't help me with dinner but slept instead. He's had ribs, steak-umm, chicken dog, apple, and at least one of every kind of treat in the house so he is not lacking in calories today.
