My evening meal consisted of spinach and ricotta cheese ravioli (bought - reduced in price) and eating some of a home made rhubarb cake that I baked.

A recent thread here made me want to eat this ravioli but the bought version was so disappointing! A compressed, nondescript, tasteless glue-like filling! I envisaged a spinach base topped with lovely ricotta cheese! I should have known better. I have never eaten a tasty fresh made ravioli from shops.

The fresh rhubarb cake was equally disappointing. It was a recipe. I started to have my doubts about it once I started chopping up the rhubarb into small pieces and seeing how much of it there was in comparison to the cake mixture! Although it held together it was more like a heavy, moist pudding and pretty bland at that!

I spelunked some pulled pork from the freezer, and will mix it with mushed-up pinto beans and pepperjack cheese. Serve with Tostitos.

We met with our financial adviser this evening and ate at an Irish pub for dinner after. The Mexican places were all so busy and we didn't have a lot of time between that meeting and church so we hit the pub for burgers. They make their own turkey burgers that were really good. I had potato salad with mine and DH had French fries.

Jabbur we live in a town with nothing but Mexican restaurants, except for one Irish Pub that has some of the best food and ambiance in town....

If you're really coming to our town soon Kgirl, we'll meet you at Garmen's for lunch, and then go over to Aloha for sunset dinner with an ocean view and Hulu Pie for desert.

Andy, your carne deshebrada sounds a bit like a tomato version of my barbacoa. I found a good-sounding recipe on Epicurious and might give it a go. Looking forward to your review.

We did a scavenger hunt in our fridge. I had the last pork chop with shallots and apple, Himself finished a small bit of chili and had veggies with a piece of corned beef. Since I was still hunngry, I had the last of the raspberries with Greek yohgurt. Oddly enough, neither of us had the barbacoa...

Oooh, was this ever yummy. Refried beans, rice, some leftover seasoned ground beef, onions, and avocado in a flour tortilla. Smothered with salsa verde, a little red salsa, sour cream, Cojita, and cilantro.
