Slack Tea Thursday

The whole point of Slack Tea Thursday is so I don't have to think about cooking on Thursdays.

However I have realised after last weeks 30 minute, 80 kilometre  Amazing Race  tea event because the Asian restaurant stuffed up my order debacle that the universe  was telling me that getting takeaway makes Slack Tea Thursday a little bit too easy. I dont think the universe minded when I did that with Clucktucky Fried Chicken the week before because KFC is incredibly bad for you, but last weeks dinner looked like actual food and so the universe decided enough was enough.

So this week, I went  back to my tried and true formula of truly slack dinners ...

I know  this looks like a meal , but it was truly slack, I swear. I hear you scoffing "Lasagne takes a lot of effort" .  Wait! This was leftover Lasagna ...from last Saturday! I dragged it out of the freezer , I didnt keep it in the fridge all that time- because I'm really not a big fan of botulism. AND I didnt cook it in the first place. It was cooked by the Pizza Place up the road , so I'm sure you'll agree this is truly slack. Never cooked it in the first place- reheated for dinner a second time ...this ticks all the boxes for slack.

So looking forward to my lasagne meal , and chuckling all the while because I outwitted the universe I tucked in ...


It was disgusting ...the cheese was like rubber and somewhere in the freezing , re-heating , chuckling process the meat turned into bullets. Three bites was enough. Yuk!  So I went with Plan B :


Ahhhhhh Promite , how I love you so. You've saved me from starvation countless times.

The remains of the day (which Indy and Lola enjoyed immensely-I heard them saying I am  doggie mother of the year as they were eating. )



No I don't eat my crusts. Everyone knows crusts make your hair go curly , and since   I have spent literally years straightening my hair with my ultra awesome GHD,  eating crusts seems counter productive. Plus I'm an adult I don't have to eat my crusts if I don't want to.

P.S. I had a cigarette and a cup of tea for dessert. Later I'm planning to eat this frozen cream cheese buttercream icing straight from the icing bag. 



 Right after I microwave it slightly so I can squirt it straight into my gob.  Slack enough?

Woo hoo, now that's more like it. I think it's going to be hard to beat this one. Best slack tea I have ever seen.

Brilliant!! You go girl :-)

I had Iced Vo Vo's last week LOL

So, not being Australian, I had to look up Promite and I discovered it was similar to Vegemite, something with which I am familiar only due to the Men at Work song, "Down Under". (Great song, great group, what happened to them?) Can you buy Promite/Vegemite in the US? Is there a US equivalent? Is it tasty? Which do you prefer? Research must ensue.

(Frosting on saltine crackers is a great snack, but I always eat like...well...a lot!)

P.S. Your comment word verification was "wispr" so let me apologize now if I was being too loud. I'll try to be quieter next time.

JKP- I sent Cynthia some vegemite recently and wrote a post about Vegemite as well. Cynthia has video of her vegemite eating experience here :

And this is my post

Two words: Vegemite rocks! Want me to send you some?

Didn't you know that crusts make you whistle? I am living proof that eating bread crusts does not lead to curly hair (darn it), but I can sure whistle a happy tune!

OMG, my word verification is "shetfit"! That was what I was having yesterday trying to FMQ!

Brenda said...

Ha hahahahaha - the frosting is the 'icing on the cake' as it were! I hate yucky food reheated from the freezer!

AnnieO said...

What a Slacker Show Off this has been! I rate you about a 9.9 on this one--especially the frosting part...though I'm not sure I want to see a perfect 10 ever accomplished. I worry for your health, see...

Alisa said...

Now you're slacking! I've never been so proud to know you.

The lasagna looked delish. What a shame it was nothing but a rubbery bullet covered in grease. The toast....well, truth be told, it looks like you took a bite of the rubbery bullet, decided against it, spit it onto your toasted bread and rubbed it in. But the frosting my friend is a whole 'nother bag of yum and I am jealous!

I'm coming over for Slack Tea next week. Let's have ice cream straight from the container. You can have promite or vegemite if you want. I'll bring the peanut butter for my toast as afters.

JKP said...

I'm going to follow those links, but, sure,you can send me some Vegemite if you want. If you send it surface mail, it'll take like...what, 6 months? Does the stuff have an expiration date?

P. Your word verification comment made me laugh.

Michelle said...

LOL! So is Promite the same as vegemite?

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

Mrs. P, I love Thursdays because it means I get to read your Slack Thursdays post and they are always entertaining. That said, the only thing that sounded good about this week's offering was the cigarette. I'm pretty sure I would sacrifice DavidThorne for it.

Kirsten's Cooking said...

great job, Mrs. P!
Although, I do love a KFC bucket, I think I'd try to talk myself into that one-
What did you make with the pastry bag of buttercream? I always think about buying those tips, but I am a big fan of plain ziploc with a hole cut out of the corner :)
hope you have a great weekend!
