Sunday Stills: Favorite Recipe or Restaurant

This challenge was more difficult than one would imagine. We don't like to cook. We don't like to clean up after cooking even more than we dislike cooking. When I'm hungry, I want to eat. Not cook.

So here is our favorite recipe (Photoshopped to protect the innocent):
We add a salad and veggies or fruit to our nuked dinner. When finished, the dinner "plates" are forwarded to the dog who slicks them up before they go into the recycle bin.

Since we're living on modest retirement benefits, we go out to eat once every 2-3 months. We generally go to the local Shari's. However, one of our favorite places to eat is Wanker's Corner -- a kitschy pub that originated in the Stafford Triangle but relocated to Wilsonville. Since we are experiencing the juiciest spring (WET) in many years, it's not conducive to taking the camera outside. So I've taken the liberty of posting a photo from the restaurant web site.
Yes...those are peanut shells on the floor. Not only allowed but encouraged by the management. As is walking away with the humorous menu printed newspaper style. The decor is a smash-up of Down Under/Beach Boys/Grandpa's attic. The food is good and generous in proportion. So the next time you're traveling I-5 in Oregon, take a detour at Wilsonville for a Foster's and good grub.

Visit Sunday Stills to see how other folks indulge!

G'day, Mate!

The peanuts on the floor seem to be a trend in some restaurants, we have it at Logan's Steakhouse in our part of the country. I enjoy cooking too much to live on LC for my meals. :)

well, your either Welsh or British - isnt that what they do, hit the pubs for their daily meal? With a pint or two? to catch up and get inspired?

Gets the literary juices flowing ;)!

You have a yuppy livestyle, I like that too. Actually I don't mind the cooking, just don't like to wash out.

Went for a small celebration in a Chinese restaurant. I have become a fuss pot. Didn't like the oily food. I could cook better. LOL

If I have a restaurant, there will be not peanuts. I am allergic to it.

Nice post. I'm not into cooking either, we share that task at our house 80-20% (I am the 20) because we all like to eat home cookin'. I would love Wankers!!

I hate nuked meals but must admit I eat more than my share of them because I hate cooking more.

Love the photoshopped effect.
