Yesterday I had a birthday party to attend at On On on McCully. I ate a whole lot of food, but was able to control myself in that I ate a TON of the salad then did not eat anything of the last two courses. (there were EIGHT!!) I thought the food was great, especially the salad! It was probably doused in fistfuls ajinomoto (MSG) but still tasted yummy!


I don’t think I’ve ever had an 8 course meal at a Chinese restaurant, so it was quite an experience. I didn’t know that we were getting this much food so of course I ate a ton of salad, then downed a lot of soup, then quickly ate up the kids’ discarded “duck in buns” before I realized that I should have been saving room for all the other things. Roast chicken came out, then a seafood medley in a fried taro bowl, next came mongolian beef with asparagus, then stuffed tofu, and finally cake noodles with duck meat. The duck noodles was by far the best dish so naturally I was upset that it came out last when I’d already stopped eating. I tried a small piece of meat and it was so yummy, that’s why my bento is kinda overflowing with it! lol

No, I did not find, kill, cook, and eat a panda bear. Yesterday was radio day and Mr. Pikko took the kids to eat at Panda Express, which is one of those fast food Chinese restaurants over here. They brought me their leftover plates and I didn’t really eat much of it and packed some of it up right away to eat for lunch today.

I couldn’t stand Panda’s food before but then they went through some kind of image re-working where they made some major changes to their dishes and such and the end result is some pretty decent fast Chinese food. I wish I could blog more today, but I’m trying to finish up a lot of work for my job right now so that when I leave this month, I can have everything in order. Please forgive me!

So as you all know, I had a very good girl Core lunch yesterday and everything was going quite well and then suddenly, the CHINESE TAKEOUT DINNER OF DOOM struck! Before I saw an article in the paper about the intense calorie content of Chinese cuisine I’d always looked at Chinese food as one of the more healthier types of foods. Now that I know better I get so scared because not only is it full of calories, but it’s so damned good too!

But fear not, I was good. I ate very little noodles and focused on broccoli and ong choi. I ate only until I wasn’t hungry too, rather than stuffing myself until I felt full. So hopefully day 1 is not completely lost. There was a ton of leftovers so I felt obligated to take some. I took all veggies and a little bit of the noodles then added some rice that I cooked this morning. I’ve gone back to my old WW Core breakfast of scrambled eggs with sweet onion, bell pepper, and lean turkey slices and it was nice to be back to eating a hot breakfast again. I’ve been eating cereal every morning for about a month now and at least this way I’m fuller longer and it doesn’t cost very many points.


From left to right I have white rice, broccoli, ong choi, and then the noodles in a cup on the right side. On the bottom layer I have:


This is the last of the shrimp I bought on Sunday. I have to use it up before it goes bad! The cocktail sauce is in the pink Hello Kitty cup. I have more tofu and then some edamame topped with a carrot flower. There’s a little soy sauce bottle for the tofu. 😀

I really really have to find the time to do my Dreamland again. I’ve been working so hard on Allakhazam while at home plus I’ve been trying to do more Pikko Pots updates so that by the time Fan Fest rolls around, I have a nicely updated site to show off. Then there’s my costume and booth work… ugh. I really don’t think I’ll be able to find time to use all my spiffy tools and toys until after Fan Fest. This is just sucking so much of my time.

We went out to eat at Kabuki last night and hubby ended up at home sick, so I packed up my leftover food for him to try eating when we got home. I thought being sick and having a nicely arranged dinner would make him eat slower, but he inhaled it Mr. Pikko style anyway.

As predicted, salmon ended up being the best choice for me. I got their Teishoku A, which is salmon shioyaki, tempura, and sashimi. Hot damn was that sashimi good. I haven’t had it in… I dunno, it’s been a long time. Probably that blissful month between ending breastfeeding Baby Girl and finding out I was preggers with Buddy.


This leftovers bento has rice, salmon shioyaki, teriyaki chicken (from the kids’ plate), shrimp tempura, takuan, mac salad, and tsukemono. I tried to take this photo when no one from the family was watching, but a couple raised eyebrows made it through anyway. Unfortunately, they were way too far away and assuring them of my sanity would have required yelling across the room. “IT’S FOR MY BLOG!”

This means I don’t have a bento for today, but that’s fine since I only ate half of my bento yesterday. Eating a fist size chunk of tofu before your lunch really fills you up, who would have thunk it! I’ll be bringing some miso soup I made for Mr. Pikko to eat with my leftover leftover bento.
