Feisty Bento #278: 7 Kinds of Smoke... errr, veggies

I had a long weekend (Monday off for MLK day) and my brain is mush, but here's some random blather.


What is this cake box doing on my messy dining table on a Friday night when it's just me and a DVD (and the snuggle buddy of a lifetime, my baby, my dog)?


Easy there, I didn't go nuts and decide to eat a whole cake.  It's my dinner - a tostada salad from a local place I've always just walked by.  Check it out!  Loaded up with "Tex-Mex Chili" they called it, cheese, pickled jalapenos (which I'm discovering I can eat when mixed into other stuff, with a light kick, yum!), tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole... a bit pricy at $8.25 (for the bowl plus a side of guacamole) but pretty tasty.  The shell was a little greasy, but it's deep fried, what do you expect.  And it wasn't fresh fried, because it took about 5 minutes from time of order to receiving my order.  Not bad, I'd order again from this place, but not this because the oil was a bit too much.


Breakfast Saturday morning... the one on the left with the sunny side up egg is mine, right is the BF's with his scrambled egg.  TOASTED English muffin ;) I wrapped these up in tinfoil and then we headed out, I wish I could tell you to do something more interesting than what we did, but... just to watch our newest baby (another puppy)... and then off to a bday dinner for my brother.

I did not take pictures during dinner, and though I did take more pictures of food throughout the weekend, those will have to wait.  Sorry!


Today's bento actually features - gasp! - 7 items.  The bottom tier is smushed together but... yeah.

Top tier: rice mixed with tamago furikake; "salt & pepper" pork chops leftover from Saturday night's dinner
Bottom tier: Napa cabbage sauteed with water, a bit of olive oil and scallions; roasted butternut squash with garlic, maple syrup and pancetta; sauteed Romaine lettuce; broccoli florets flash cooked; sauteed mungbean sprouts

I crammed that all in there and it was delicious.

Happiest of bentos!!!

PS If you get the reference in the title, we probably watch the same kinds of movies, lol.

  1. We watch the same kind of movies. Of course I have a 16 yr old son, so at least I have an excuse :)
