Welcome home bento (Bento #183)
I cannot believe the summer is almost over. I didn’t finish half of what I wanted, but I had a great time. Hubs and I just got back from a diving trip in the FL Keys. We went on 8 dives! It was truly an adventure and I wish I could do it again. We saw hundreds of fish, numerous coral reefs, tons of jellyfish, and even some remains of wrecked ships. Hubs even got to see a few sharks but I missed them. My favorite part was slowly gliding into a huge school of little fish. If you go slow enough, they actually don’t mind you being there and they swim all around you in a giant group. It’s such a surreal experience, it’s like visiting another planet.
For our last night in th
e Keys we decided to go see an old friend... Kitty! Kitty lives at a great B&B in Key West called the Casablanca. It’s actually on the same block as Hemingway’s house. We knew that Kitty, and her millions of extra toes, would be upset if we stayed anywhere else so we booked a room, picked up some salmon flavored treats, and headed South. After 4 days of diving, it was nice to have a relaxing final night.
I came home a little battered and bruised (thanks to a bunch of jellyfish stings and my fins tearing up my feet) so it’s taking me a little bit of time to get back into the swing of things. We took quite a few underwater pictures but I haven’t had the latest ones developed yet. I hope they turn out!
I couldn’t wait to make a bento so I threw this one together at the last bit of sunlight. I tossed some frozen vegees in the rice as it cooked and packed it with some purple cabbage slaw, soy beans, and cherries.
I hope you all had a wonderful summer! I can’t wait to catch up on everyones bentos!
