It's about time! (Bento #250)
Wow, one week without bentos feels like an eternity! I spent all of last week volunteering at a conference on campus and didn’t have the time, or the need for that matter, to make myself lunch. It’s nice to be back to bento.
After reading Makiko Itoh’s posts on sakura, I’ve been wanting some preserved flowers and leaves. OK, want isn’t the proper word. I think obsessed is more appropriate. I’m going to make a pilgrimage out to our local Japanese market to see if they have any. If not, the online hunt continues. If any of you know where to order some preserved sakura blossoms and leaves please let me know.
In the meantime I had to satisfy my sakura fancy with a cookie cutter. For today’s bento I have sakura shaped honey glazed sweet potato, flower shape ham and swiss sammies, a hard boiled egg, cucumber, asparagus, and a strawberry and pineapple fruit salad.
