Hello! I'm back from a long weekend trip to NYC that was full of fun, good eats and great bento shopping! I'll post trip pictures soon; for now I'd like to share today's crab and tobiko sushi bento with teriyaki octopus, takoyaki, baby lettuce, spinach, and shiso. The new lavender-colored washi paper is from Mitsuwa, which is becoming a required stop when we are in the NY/NJ area!
Sharing the same dreamy lavender color are these super-fragrant hyacinths:
Other fun discoveries from the NY visit: this new notebook, perfect for jotting down bento ideas mid-Metro commute:

More on the NYC visit soon!
