Happy Friday, bento pals! Today's bento features pink ume noodles topped with dried plums, scallions, avocado, plus blackberries and green figs, snow pea tops and teriyaki saury:
The avocado was threaded on a clematis vine with starry flourishes, inspired by the organic and lovely bento stylings of Blorgie1, whose bentos sparkle with inventiveness, delicacy and natural beauty...I love the shared inspiration (and information) that flows through our bento community and feel so enriched by how it has led me to new culinary advenures!
The pink ume noodles had a pleasingly tart flavor, echoed by the dried plum topping; I started thinking pink for today's bento after coming across these fringed mimosa blossoms on a walk yesterday:
The mimosa's pretty pastels brought to mind these noodles in my pantry...
Hope you'll have a fun weekend--we are looking forward to a dumpling feast with a good pal and to seeing what the farmer's market holds...Cheers!
