Racing the sun

Ever have those days where it seems like every time you go to do something, you forget the purpose?  Well, I had one of those days.  As we were making dinner, I was planning out the bento that I was going to immediately make and photograph using the leftovers.  Once dinner was finished, I put the leftovers in the fridge, cleaned the kitchen, went to sit down, and suddenly remembered that I didn’t make my bento!

So there I was, racing against the sun!  I only had about 10 minutes of good sunlight left to get this bento put together and photographed.  It’s not my greatest work, but it’ll do in a pinch.  I apologize for the blurry photo!!  For some reason, I couldn’t get my camera to focus right.


In the bento: grilled chicken, sautéed kale, green beans, cherries, and a mini-Babybel cheese.

The fabric under the bento is from a little shop on the street going to Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto.  I thought the cat looked just like my stinker strolling along the streets of Kyoto under the cherry blossoms.  I couldn’t resist getting it!

On a technical note, I finally got the RSS feed to work with Feedburner!  Yay! 🙂  I’m still working on adding my old photos to the photo gallery, but it’s almost done.

Happy Bento-ing!
