Feisty Bento #360: Uber delicious


I'm not sure how this happened, but my posts don't match up with my computer.  ie, this is #359 on my computer but here it is #360.  Has anyone noticed a missing number?  If so, please tell me!  This is going to drive me nuts until I figure it out!

Left: 3 slices of a zucchini-potato gratin I made but want to tweak a little before I post a recipe, plus it's CSA stuff :)
Right: whole grain bread with turkey & ham, mayo & mustard


More playing with color accent.  My camera is a Canon (SD 1100 IS, if you care about such things), and most of the newer Canons have it.  I think even my old one had it, though not the one before that, which was an SD 100, though.  My bento bag sitting on some paperwork at the office.


On Saturday, I went to my sister's house to play with my nephews, relax, catch up & gossip with my sister.  She made these ribs using a BBQ sauce from Williams-Sonoma - maple-something - but it was too sweet for me.  The ribs were smoky and juicy, but the sauce itself - and I love sauce! - was just a tad much.  She wasn't offended :P


We also had steak because my brother in law rocks the cash-bar.  (Anyone who gets that joke... you must be older than me.  lol.) 


Our entire spread - sauteed broccoli, kielbasa, and a super salad I made, but that's also CSA stuff, so stay tuned :)


My dog thinks she's a cat.  She likes to jump onto my windowsill (from the armchair that's in front of it first... she isn't that cat-like!) and stare out the window.  It was probably more fun in our last apartment, when we lived facing the street in a corner apartment.  I'm still in a corner apartment but my windows face the back/side so she doesn't have people to look at it really... although sometimes she stares at other people's windows and growls at them. 


She looks so regal.


HAHAHAHAHA I caught her at just the right moment... she looks like she's about to attack, right?  Or bite/chomp down?  Nahhh, she's yawning. 

So if you follow my Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, you probably saw I posted briefly about Keywee being sick.  I took her to the vet, and while the jury is still out and we're not out of the woods yet (and how many other corny metaphors can I use?), I'm hoping things are OK.  I am monitoring her (going straight home after work to make sure she's ok, keeping an eye on her, etc.) and making sure she's eating, pottying, playing, being a normal dog, basically.  She hasn't wanted to play for a little bit now, so I'm a little anxious to see how things play out, plus she tends to get very depressed if I give her any sort of medicine or treatment she doesn't want- I've been dropping ointment into her ears (for a separate, unrelated issue), so she's been very angry at me and depressed as well. 

So please keep a good thought for her... I'd rather not go into the details of why/how/what happened that she requires monitoring and care, if you know, then you know, if not, we'll keep it that way (sorry!)... but please send some good thoughts her way, or, if you're so inclined, pray for her to be OK.  Thanks!

Think outside the lunchbox!!!


  1. Dang, I want that bento.

    Hugs to you and Keywee.

  2. I absolutely love your bentos. Not sure but it might be #158 that you skipped. However, you also did #170 twice. Um, I could be wrong. Hope it helps.

  3. I went back as far as this computer will let me (to 200) and didn't find anything. Sorry.
