How was your weekend? After a rainy, stormy Saturday, Sunday has unfurled like a spring flower...and provided sunny inspiration for this bento to start the work week. My pasta primavera includes pastel farfalle pasta with asparagus and shrimp (both quickly cooked in butter), sugar snap peas, edible violas.
Also in the bento: golden beets, butter lettuce and a sprig of oregano, already in spicy green bud in the garden!
In a little gelato cup, amaretti cookie and ripe raspberries:
Sunday's relaxed lunch featured this pasta with additional sauteed garlic and Parmesan cheese--yum!
The afternoon was breezy and bright...perfect for planting seeds: zinnia, nasturtium, morning glory and a wildflower/herb mix. It will be fun to see what comes up in the weeks ahead!

We met cool and friendly Leander the cat...
Have a great week, happy cooking!
