Feisty Bento #276: More Mess

In the cup: sour cream topped with lots of fresh cilantro, for mixing into the jar
Jar:  chili topped with shredded cheese (recipe to come, it's a new version of my previous chili recipes)
Frozen individual portion of Mandarin oranges - I have to check on the brand for these, but it's 80 calories a cup, not sure if that includes if you drink the juice - ummm, who said I do that?!  :P

Okay.  I am not having good luck with the lunch jars lately.  The frozen cup of Mandarin oranges - I froze it because I wanted to keep my sour cream cold, right?  But when I took everything out to have lunch, the plastic part of its cup had broken, I guess during the freezing process, and it leaked juice all over my thermal insulated lunch bag!  WRAGH!!!  Since it's just juice, luckily,that'll rinse right out, but still, I was NOT happy!

Also: thanks for all the tips about the other lunch bag!  I wound up soaking it with some dishwashing soap and then rinsing it off, letting it dry.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do this right away since I had to rush out to take care of a semi-emergency the other night, so I don't think all of the oils came out.  Thankfully, the bag is a dark maroon, so I guess it won't look too bad with a stain... I'll let you know how it looks once it's fully dry (it wasn't dry yet when I last checked).  Boo. 

Sorry for not updating - I actually was out sick the past two days, had some... issues.  Blegh.  I'm back now... and it's snowing!!!

This was the view while I waited for the bus this morning.  BLEGH.  Perfect day to stay in, I tell you!

The view from my bus (of another bus) so you can see how much snow it was.  Sigh.  The downside of living in NYC.



  1. I am sorry you are sick - it is definitely cold that's for damn sure.

    I can't wait for the chili recipe - we have our favorite but it is so pedestrian :D - yummy tho' - with cheese, chopped onion, s/ cilantro tho' - no one likes it.

    Try and stay warm :D
