A Pumpkin and a Monday Bento

Just before the Polar Vortex (November 2014) Ray found and brought inside one last pumpkin.

The last pumpkin of 2014, unceremoniously dropped into the potato bucket.

This is where the pumpkin landed about a week ago, I forgot that we even had it… until I came home from school today.

Pumpkin Snicker Doodles, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Pie and roasted pumpkin seeds. The house smells AMAZING! We have the puree of four other pumpkins in the freezer… it’s gonna be a yummy winter! I bet there is some left for next year when we do not plant because of the Sabbath Year.

Monday Bento, Nov. 17

Beautiful blue sky but who shut off the heat? Burr! MSN is saying the high will be 50, but I don’t think it got that warm today. I do believe it will get down to 26 tonight. Sunrise was at 7:18, it’s fixen to set at 4:29 (9 hours and 11 minutes of daylight)

About the Monday Bento, slim pickings today. No starch in this one but I’m sure the two cookies I wolfed down after school make up for that! By the way, it surprised me that peeps were liking the last bento post. It is my everyday and I forget that bento is interesting to some of you. Thanks!

Protein from chicken salad left over from our Sabbath dinner.

  • Red = tomatoes and strawberries (on the yogurt)
  • Green = broccoli
  • Yellow = cantaloupe flowers
  • white = cucumber slices and cauliflower
  • Black = grapes, blueberries and blackberries

Todays hydration came from lemon-mint infused water. The morning snack was sliced apples, dates and almond butter for dipping.
