BBQ to the Rescue (387)

Bento 387

Last night, I had such plans.  Make a deer stew.  Make the crabmeat meuniere sauce, photograph, and show the recipe in the coming weeks on this site.  Drizzle that meuniere sauce all over two pork chops I planned to broil for dinner and enjoy one heck of a dinner.  But it was not to be.  I came home to find the items I had removed from the freezer and placed in the fridge to still be rock solid.  Apparently, 10 hours in the fridge while I was away from home and at work just wasn’t enough.  BUMMER!  Ah well, best laid plans and all that.  I fed and played with the dogs while considering my options.  In the end, I headed over to my favorite BBQ place, TJ Ribs, for dinner.

Today’s bento contains leftovers from TJ’s: bbq pork stuffed chimichange, and red beans.  I stuffed in broccoli to have a bit of greenery and an orange for something sweet.  It’s not what I planned, but it is a lovely lunch nonetheless.  My plans have just been rescheduled for tonight instead.  Tomorrow, I hope to have another great lunch.

I had several requests yesterday to share the recipes for the crawfish rolls and the meuniere sauce.  Please know both are coming, but not for a few more weeks.  The meuniere sauce will come in a special “Recipe Week” I am planning here at Not Exactly Bento for later in September.  The rolls are part of a special project I’ve been hinting at and will be announced on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

In the meantime…Be the Bento, everyone!  I hope you have a great Wednesday.

    I’m a vegetarian but this looks ridiculously delicious! And now I want a chimichanga because of you. Ha!
