The Laughing Otter- because life’s just too short

Bento, Ferrets, Cat, and a new club!

Posted on: January 19, 2009



Bento for Jan 17th, 2009: Stirfry Veggies, steamed asparagus wrapped in procuitto and fried, sauteed mushrooms, a little cup of crunchy chicken noodle things, and rice with furikake; in the second box was three kinds of cubed cheese, thick slices of summer sausage, a cup of grapes, a cup of cucumbers, a bottle of catalina dressing, crackers, and two iced oatmeal cookies.
There was also a thing of yogurt, and a can of soup just in case he wanted more food. ^_^ He’s got a big appetite, good for him! A high metabolism means a lot of food, and he works so hard it’s good.

The ferrets were out the other day, and Digby crashed in the fluff-box. Just adorable, if you ask me! Puck is doing alright, although he’s still too skinny for my taste. The stress of the move, of losing baby, and of changing families has been a little rough on the poor guy, but he’s devouring the chicken baby food, so I’m thinking he’ll recover just fine. Puut’s just fat and sassy as ever. *laughs*

The snow crushed our fence by the back shop. That’s a lot of weight! O_O We’ll have to dig it out and see about repairing it.

A growly-bear for my growly-bear! This is Josh’s Mister Growly T. Bear. We got him from World Market for $5, on clearance. He was just so adorable I couldn’t resist.

He crashed on my lap, and I needed to finish what I was typing. *laughs* He never woke up! … and then he peed on me. So I guess we’re even.

We weighed him the other day, and he was at 13lbs 5 oz, so I measured and he’s just about 22 inches now! Probably longer, but this was the best I could do. We’ll find out at his doc’s visit on the 21st!

Sound asleep, we took a lovely headshot of him. What a beautiful, handsome, sweet boy! … okay, done gushing now.

My king of the basement- Coricopat. Cori’s a handsome cat we got as a tiny itty kitten, who had grown up to be egotistical, domineering, arrogant… in short, everything a good kitty should be. ^_^


Bento for Jan 18, 2009: Three-Rice Box (Spam fried rice, regular fried rice, white rice with furikake); and teriyaki veggies, turkey dumplings, steamed asparagus, a cup of grapes, and sauces- soy in the bottle, hot mustard in the packets. And a cup of crunchy chicken noodle things.

The dumplings are sort of a cross between a croquette and a meatball. Turkey and seasonings, wrapped in nori and fried. Recipe courtesy of Cooking Cute. The two fried rices are also Cooking Cute recipes.

We also got some steamed dumplings and some gyoza from the store- frozen. Takes just two minutes to steam and fry them, and boom! Fresh food!

We made pigs in a blanket today, too- with premade croissant rolls, the pillsbury kind? We cut them smaller and wrapped them around John Morell Cocktail Smokies (the only kind I like) and baked them. DELICIOUS!

We started a group here in Spokane for women who like Japan- anime, manga, bento, anything Japan-oriented. It’s called Sakura Blossoms (Check us out at our blog and our Craigslisting) and our first event is on the 26th, for New Years- a Year of the Ox celebration!

So, otherwise, have an awesome day! ^____^
