Feast Fit for a King

So, as we've already reported, our cook did not show up today. After speaking with Norma, we found out that our suspicions were correct- Bebot will not be returning as far as we know. Ambre and I will now be responsible for preparing our own meals and how long this will last we are not sure. Since this happened so unexpectedly, we were not as prepared as we could have been. This morning the only things we had to eat were some overripe fruit, garlic, various packets of soup, and the few things we bought yesterday on our trip to the market and the convenience store. For breakfast, Ambre decided on a bowl of banana honey oatmeal and some kind of sweet bun thing that is like a donut/cinnamon roll combo. I, on the other hand, had just the sweet bun and starved until around noon. Then, I ate some leftover spaghetti with strange sauce around lunch time so that I could take my medications. Later in the day, we had someone go to the store to pick up a few things so that we would have something for dinner. One of the things that was brought back turned out to be pork chops. But don't get too excited because neither of us quite knows what to do with them... Instead, we turned to the things that we are more familiar with. Each of us had a small can of beanie weenies and two tiny peanut butter sandwiches without jelly. It may not sound exciting to anyone else but trust me, it was very satisfying. Here is a picture of it!


  1. Well Now, that sounds like quite a dinner.
    I hope you get some help with the food situation.
    Question, what kind of Bats are you researching/Lesser short-nose fruit bats/golden-capped fruit bats or/Panay giant fruit bats?????

  2. :) Geoffroy's Rousette Fruit Bat (Rousettus amplexicaudatus)

  3. OMG! I wonder what happened to Bebot. Very odd. Are pork chops boneless or bone in? If boneless, you could cut up and cook in the wok. Of course, it be nice if you had some type of spice and maybe some onions. You could serve over rice.
