Elizabeth’s Bento

Cooking in Sens

The day before she was due to take the plane back home to Ohio, my sister said that she needed to buy something to eat during the flight because apparently they don’t serve food anymore on local flights.  What?!  It seems that for the last couple of decades I’ve only flown on international flights.  They do serve peanuts, chips and soft drinks I guess.  My sister’s idea was to load up with bags of chips, crackers, cookies, etc.  “Hell no”, I said in a sisterly fashion, this is a job for bento box!”

A bento box is easy to put together from the leftovers in your refrigerator but the best ones are made fresh, specifically for packing in the box.  I did this not only because I didn’t have any leftovers but, of course, because I love my sister 😉

I began with inarizushi, fried tofu skins stuffed with sushi rice and tuna salad and sprinkled…

Cooking in Sens

I experienced my first blizzard!  So exciting, but the dog really didn’t want to go outside at all and had to be cruelly forced outside to take care of her needs.  Her doghouse did not tempt her and she went no further than the bottom of the house deck stairs, returned to the kitchen door to gaze at us, pitifully coated in snow.  We eventually let her back in 😀

In general, the blizzard created no problems for us.  Although the car was completely buried, we didn’t need it for anything because we always have a stocked pantry, plenty of alcohol and a ridiculously bulging freezer.

I wrestled 2 slabs of pork spareribs from the freezer and seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic powder and rosemary.  I roasted the slabs for an hour in 350 F oven before brushing them with barbecue sauce.

An additional 45 minutes, turning and brushing them…

EXCERPT: It Must Be Love

Have you been to Mustang Prairie yet? It Must Be Love is book 4 in the series, featuring childhood (sort of) friends and former next door neighbors Trixie & Jack.

About this book: 

Trixie is a Mustang Prairie girl, born and raised. At least until her parents up and moved her to a commune in Oregon and far away from the love of her young life. Jack Thorpe.

But grownup Trixie is back in Mustang Prairie and ready for the next chapter in her life, which includes her lingerie store Under the Skirt and starting her own line of sexy lacy things. When her past collides with her present in the form of a tall, blonde artist, Trixie has to wonder if her girlish crush could be the answer to her grownup dreams?

Jack married his high school sweetheart, only it didn’t turn out so sweet and he never got to tell her it was over. Now he has to smile and pretend while the world goes on and on about how great Marissa was, especially now that he’d brought his girls back to Mustang Prairie for good.

The one bright spot in town was the new and improved girl next door. Little Trixie wasn’t so little and Jack was more than a little interested. Too bad he wasn’t interested in another round of the rollercoaster known as love and commitment.

Too bad he can’t stay away.
