Eye on the Prize
Kenji dangles some meat for Yuba. Soon to be meat inside Yuba.
Hambone, Meet Lily
New intern Lily met Hambone for the first time this week. She wanted to shower him with love, but it took a while for him to warm up to her. (He was pretty much okay with her by the end of the day, though. Hambone loves everyone!)
Yuba, Meet Lily
Yuba warmed up much more quickly.
Clam Chowder Lab
Kenji made four variations of clam chowder for an upcoming Food Lab post. The office smelled amazing.
Hambone dragged Yuba out from behind the desk.
Isn't Yuba cute when she's playing? Yeeeahh.
Aw, look at them go.
These guys just love each other so much.
Hambone likes to take solitary naps too.
Chichi at Sanur
A Taste Test for Dessert
This is Chichi's "Hello Panda is way better than Koala's March" face.
Triple Dog Action
What's that under Hambone and Yuba? Oh, nothing, just a gigantic plush dog.
Kenji sometimes spends the day testing recipes in his kitchen at home. This his how his assistants while away the hours between meals.
Feed me feed me feed me feed me
This is the view out Kenji's kitchen door every night as he prepares the dogs' dinners. "I CAN HAZ FOODZ NOW?" says Yuba. Hambone takes a more emotional route: "Look into my doleful eyes and see if you can deny me my supper for even one minute longer," he seems to say.
CAT, WHERE ARE YOU
It was Yuba's first day back in the office after a two week vacation in Boston, which she spent in a house with two cats. She now permanently sleeps with her eyes wide open.
ALL the dog food
It was dog-food day this week at the López-Alt household. Both pups get a special diet, which Kenji prepares in huge batches and freezes. This month: turkey and kale stew!
