It’s been a crazy morning for me already. First of all, our ice machine is making hollow ice cubes and is slowly dripping water to form a huge iceberg in the ice tray. Then when I pulled out the bowl of chicken in marinade, that I was going to cook for Paige’s lunch, I accidently overturned it. The bowl was still covered with plastic wrap, which luckily kept the chicken contained, however much of the marinade leaked out in the fridge. Yuck, raw chicken marinade. Then I left the house this morning in a scramble because we were running late and our car alarm went off when I opened the doors. Of course it would happen that I couldn’t shut it off because the button on the alarm’s remote was hopelessly stuck and had to run back in the house to look for the spare one, which BTW I couldn’t find. By the time I returned the alarm thankfully went off, but I still couldn’t open the doors without setting the alarm off again. By this point I was laughing at all of the craziness, said a prayer, and when I pressed the remote again, the alarm obediently turned off. I guess we have those days once in a while.
Paige’s bento today included bears cut out from an egg sheet, mochiko chicken, a vegetable gyoza, and a few fruits and veggies. The noses and tummies of the bears are cut from fish sausage and I used a couple of crown picks for the top of their heads.
