Bento (58) - The Non-Bento

This is what happens when I don't bento, and the bento-guilt attacks me right before lunch.

The best part is trying to explain to co-workers why I haven't lost my mind. The cute little PB&J sandwich is one of the Jams sandwiches I bought at Sams. I was running late for work and decided maybe I should taste test the sandwich have been inflicting on Goose (especially since he complains they are terrible). Verdict - sort of squishy due to too much jelly, but the bread was NOT soggy - and it was pretty darn tasty! The green half-circles are kiwi, the red are strawberry, and the green triangles in the strawberry ring are avacado. The red liquid is red wine vinegar with a healthy dose of salt. Stir together until salt melts and dip avacado. MMMMmmmmmMMMMM.

As a follow up to my prior post - my little black fuzzy did not take to treatment and had to be put down. The hard part of being a pet owner is realizing when you have to let go ::sniffle::. Things will be back to normal (or what passes for normal at my house) shortly - but we will miss you Little Owl. I'm taking the pre-emptive route and telling folks up front so they don't inquire how treatment is going. Thank you to all who have been so supportive!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your kitty :(

    I think I'll try the vinegar avocado mix.... sounds yummy.

  2. Oh noes...:( I'm sorry it had to happen!!

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet kitty! I agree about this being the hardest part of having pets; I lost my darling girl about two years ago and am just now starting to consider kitten adoption, maybe this spring.
    Healthy, pretty foods--love the avo dip idea!
