Ode to Vincent (LOST Bento 13)

Wow… have I seriously made 13 Lost bentos??

LOST is back this week and I almost didn’t make one today because I had no plan and felt lazy. I ended up cycling through the Lost Forever font looking for someone to cut out when I ended up on Vincent. Since we’ve been talking a lot about getting a dog, what kind of dog we wanted to get, and most of all how much Mr. Pikko wishes golden retrievers weren’t so terrible at the whole guard dog thing, I figured it was fitting to do a bento dedicated to Lost’s dog.

Especially since you know he’ll end up being one of the loose ends we just don’t get to know about. I mean seriously, what is going to happen to him? I think they just won’t say! But eh, maybe I’m wrong.


I was so lazy I didn’t start cutting him out until 6:30. At 7:05 I threw together the food in just under 5 minutes if you can believe that. (not counting boiling the veggies tho) I have Teri-Q Salmon, broccoli, corn, asparagus, tomato, rice, Vincent, and a carrot bone.

My aunty read my blog post yesterday about my giveaway and she was very concerned that I burned the food, asking if it was something to do with her instructions. I’ve since informed her of what a catastrophe I can be and that the burning is surely attributed to me not knowing the power of my cast iron pan, not her instructions.

Here’s a close-up of this cutie:


Poor dog. At least he has a lot of Dharma Initiative worker bones to eat though, right? HA HA…


One of my winners, Mimi, did not reply to my email in time, so I adjusted the numbers of the entries and drew a replacement winner. Congrats, Kim!!


This is Box #023 in my Docubentory. I tried to find it to make my lunch today, but my cabinet is a jungle and I couldn’t get to it. I couldn’t even see it!! Ugh.

  • Love the Vincent bento! I think when Lost is all said and done I am going to need them to put out a Lost for Dummies tv special that will go through and explain everything for me and tie up any loose ends ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hi! I am not a lost fan, but I love this doggy! You have superb cutting skill.

  • I know the discussion about getting a dog or not. My family has now two Labrador Retriever, and we are really happy with them. So nice dogs, and surely no guard dog ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Your bento is really nice! I love your cutting stile you show on all LOST Bento. How do you made it, that the nori not curls?

  • I love your Vincent bento! My husband got a dog for us to be a watch dog. We got an Australian Shepard. Herding dogs are very smart and easy to train and they can handle our hot weather. I love Golden retrievers too. But they both shed like crazy. Tucker will be 14 on May 10.

    That’s funny about your aunts reaction to you salmon! Sometime I like things a little on the done side, ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I really, like really really, want the complete LOST on Blu-Ray… *drool*

  • Hehe, I figured anyone who likes dogs would enjoy it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • When it sticks to the cheese, it doesn’t curl. It’s gets to be a problem if I have to move it though. =

  • Yeah I don’t want a long haired dog really, but Mr. Pikko wants an akita so bad.

    Vincent is a Labrador. He isn’t a Golden Retriever. Golden Retrievers are long haired. Labradors are short.
