Hi bento pals! Today's lunch was a vegetarian affair including a wild rice pilaf cooked with my fave Russian mushroom bouillon, plus pistachios and green peas for balanced protein (and more color!).
A cute purple pepper from the farmer's market also inside along with an orange nasturtium bloom and its green, spicy leaves (which I ate) and a rose from my garden (which I did not)...thin slices of golden zucchini and snow pea tops fill the lower section, honey-sweet cantaloupe flowers with blueberries and zingy peppermint are up top.
A friend came by last night with a wonderful and thoughtful summer treat: fresh-picked figs with goat cheese and toasted pecans (thank you Cheryl, you are the best!). Only a couple are left...and will be savored for dessert tonight!
Some vibrant pink flowers are blooming and re-blooming at the moment...
Including this unexpected revival from a rose bush quiet since May...what a delightful surprise to see this today:
