Brief transition piece. Monday may be a wee bit more intense.

Wow... I think I'm with Tona on this one. Shameless*.


*Shameless, in this case, meaning "ready to launch a masterpiece" :P

Intense! That first panel is too much like the blizzard weekend before last. Just less snow.

Thanks!

That's one vote for "stay in the clutches of the psycho ex-con (and her mom)" vice "flee into the night".

HA well played, Felicia.
I guess they are having an overnight guest.

Love the smoke demon.

Felicia's going to regret being so clever.

And I'm not talking about their upcoming "chicken con carbon" dinner.

Here's a stupid question: If Maureen is so bad at cooking that she burns chicken in the oven then why did she even buy it in the first place? Is it optimism, false-assessment of her abilities, or is she just trying and failing at it while Tona's busy being indignant?

"false-assessment"
Trust me.
There are people who do not give a damn about how they cannot cook and still do it. In their eyes, it is edible and they WILL eat it themselves. Even saying it is good.

Then there is the group of people who need to justify paying the price. I paid for it so we better eat it! Hahahaha! It is goood! DOWN THE HATCH DAMMIT!

source: sad experience :<

Whoa! I can finally talk about food on this comic. Took long enough :Y

@AC: Aaaand this would be the reason Tona never complained about the MREs in the Army.

@MJ: There will be consequences to Maureen's "cooking".

I think I am taking "consequences" unnecessarily seriously now...
I will see.

Okay, I didn't ask simply enough I guess. Just how good or bad at cooking does Maureen think she is, and does Tona usually do the cooking or not? I'm trying to figure out just what level and consistency of hell Tona is suffering here.

Tona's thin for a reason.

At least baby Trinity gets simple fare that's been thrown in the blender and none of the evil mashup of Eastern European cuisine + microwave dinners that Tona was raised on.

To answer your question: Maureen cooks, and doesn't particularly care whether it's tasty or not because Tona nor her "male friends" don't complain.

Parsed. So this is substantially a hell of her own making, Tona should have really tried to learn to cook in high school when it was free (or was it?) and she's suffering the consequences now.

The first panel is why I snicker during the winter at people waking up at 5:30 just to clean their car in advance while I use the bus :)
Bwahahaha!

The last panel is why you eat outside and try to pay with 2015 dated food tickets :)
Not so bwahaha...
