Thursday’s lunch was spent at a much-needed session of socializing with a co-worker, and picking up a dog bed. Hence, the delayed post.
My beloved labrador soiled her bed – and unable to salvage, I went on a quest to find a comfortable replacement for her stiff legs. I found an orthopedic bed with a comfortable egg-crate insert, and covered in faux shearling. I brought the bed home, was covered in dog-kisses, and she promptly flopped down and did not move from her bed until the next morning. My heart had ached a bit, since I had to dispose of her soiled bed the night before – and I had spread a towel on the floor for her to lie on. I heard her toss and turn all night – her collar jingling and jangling little bells until dawn broke.
Thursday’s lunch was an attempt to add diversity to my daughter’s lunch. It consisted of the following:
Thinly sliced pork wrapped string beans and enoki mushrooms, sautéed and seasoned with a soy-sauce, ginger and mirin dressing.
Blanched and sliced organic string beans, seasoned with Krazy Mixed-up Salt.
Sautéed lotus root, seasoned with sesame oil, salt, pepper and a dash of soy sauce.
Steamed organic multi-grain rice with gomashio.
