I have seen that show before when looking for bento recipes.
I used to cook with my mpoo Pumkin, but she sat on a chair not the counter for the same reason. But she loved being in the big middle of it all. Best of all, I knew where she was in the chair, so no stepping on puppy when going to refrigerator. :P
The recipes sound great, but I have issues finding some of the ingredients out here in the middle of now where. Need to make a Dallas run to stock up.
