Lunch... it just keeps getting better and better!

  • Bento TV

  • I have to say, I'm looking forward to this little online "tv" show. It's bentos bentos and more bentos... (a bento is a little lunch box.... japanese style... similar to the laptop lunchbox that I mentioned earlier.) Bento TV is a daily video blog featuring bento recipes, bento packing tips, and demos of bento making tools.

    bring on the bentos. ;)

    stuff and nonsense.

    Today we took down the xmas tree and other decorations, successfully adding quite a few usable square feet to our apartment ( don't tell the property managers, I'm sure they'd want to up the rent) In the process we also cleared out some other things. (thank you Freecycle!) I have another post cooking up in my mind right now.. very sentimental... regarding the end of the season, the tossing of the gingerbread house... I took pictures.. my eyes got wet. It may or may not make that final leap from my brain to the screen or pages of my journals.. we'll see... many things somehow don't make that final leap..

    this quote was on the signature line of someone who plans to pick up our "random bag of electronic junk". Seriously. I love Freecycle!

    Nick Graham of Truman, Minnesota

    Have you seen the story of The Youngest Grocer in America ... a seventeen year old kid in a small town. He bought the store to keep it open. Now he runs the only grocery store in Truman, Minnesota!

    You might want to thank The Target Coach for that story. If I hadn't seen it there first, I might have left you with these instructions for making sauerkraut. I never realized there was so much to sauerkraut... or that it was so good for you. According to the people at we should really all be eating much more...

    I wonder if they sell it in Truman....
