Have you embraced the concept of the girl dinner

Random ingredients on a plate. Variety is key. NOT a picky tea. But similar.

I don’t think I understand the difference between this and a picky tea. I also don’t really know what a picky tea is.

I think a picky tea is more substantial, whereas this favours random things in random sizes ie takis, pickles, fruit slices and that

Think we’re at the point where we need fewer names for things

Strong agree - it’s high time we started practicing what I call “linguistic coppicing”.

But to me a picky tea has like… sandwiches and pork pies and that.

This is like - some crisps, maybe some pickles, couple slices of celery or what not and some sauce.

I would agree that a picky tea is more like a plate of various sort of convenience foods that might make sense for dinner eg sandwich, hummus and veg

Girl dinner, as I practise it, is usually standing over the sink eating cheese then a banana then some custard creams then some precooked chicken slices and finally a tomato (eaten like an apple). The key for me is the lack of planning, the savagery of eating as one finds, and all fingers no utensils. It’s more a scavenge, I guess. A dessert item can be eaten mid dinner, and the constituent parts could often be combined into eg a sandwich but will be eaten separately instead.

More a snack than a dinner I would say

What are those things in your plate with the holes in? Look intriguing

Oh yeah sorry it’s definitely a snack even in the context of ‘girl dinner’ - it’s not really a dinner

It’s basically this meme but TikTok isn’t it?

I’d like to, but I need some regimentation to my meals or I struggle. Same with tapas, barbecues, picnics and picky teas.

What is the sauce please
