Getting into mischief.

Yesterday after school Jonathan had a sledding party, so Winn and I had a few hours to ourselves. We went to a new Mongolian Grill. You go through this line and choose all the ingredients you want for your stir-fry, first the raw meats, then the rice or noodles, etc., then all the veggies, then all the sauces (from mild to fire-hot). Then you take it to this huge grill where a bunch of guys cook your food for you (which only takes a couple minutes on the big hot grill). You can go back through the line as many times as you want to try all the different ingredients. It was good food, and it was so nice to spend the time together.

It sure is advantageous to have a mom who's a Panera manager. One of the perks is that we get lots of free bread when they have leftovers. Last night she gave us so much bread and bagels and other yummies that we had to freeze some of it. Usually our dog can be trusted, so we left it all on the counter while we went to eat last night...mistake. When we came home, all the croissants and bread bowls were gone. (And I was so looking forward to making soup tonight for the bread bowls!) Sajak knew he was in trouble when we got home, and when I scolded him, he went straight to his bed. He has this little spot at the window where he surveys the neighborhood (and he likes to line his squeaky toys and rawhides up on the windowsill sometimes), and we found this chunk of bread there that he apparently didn't have time to finish before we came back...


At least there were a couple loaves and some bagels left when Sajak got through with it...

too funny...do you suppose Abbey and Sajak are text messaging each other?

Too funny! Dogs are just like kids in knowing when they're doing or have done something wrong. :)

Seems that if Panera has that much left over, there would be plenty of shelters and organizations that would LOVE to receive food for the poor or the hungry (humans).

Panera donates a lot of their leftover bread to different organizations. We just benefit from it occasionally as well. :)

Naughty dog! That would be disapointing. Rather funny too.

Don't you ever feel like you're taking bread from the mouth of the poor though?

I love panara...that would have made me sad. But it would have been hard not to laugh when you saw he knew what he had done. I'm a softy.

Dear Anonymous,
I guess I feel that if Panera isn't donating the leftover bread to anyone else that night, I'd rather use it or give it to someone else than have it go to waste.

We enjoy Mongolian Grill in Taipei as well!
