simple summer bento


Hi bento pals! A simple and cooling lunch for Monday: tabbouleh with parsley, scallion, yellow pepper, red onion, shrimp-mayo filled avocado, cucumber slices and bright farmer's market tomatoes, so flavorful they need no seasoning at all...



Have a wonderful week ahead!

What a lovely, simple, summer bento! Sounds delicious too! I love the bee in the sunflower. I just posted a bee collecting pollen in my cactus flowers and my camera just wasn't working with me. (I have the money to get a new camera I just have to do it). Great photos as usual...I really like the sunflower...it deserves a second mention. You should definitely have that one framed!

Hello Lyndsey! Thanks so much for your sweet comments--I'm glad you liked the bee and sunflower! I hope you find a new camera you love. My Canon is pretty trusty and easy to carry around...

What a cool and refreshing summer bento Jenn! Love the creamy shrimp/avocado combination with the tabbouleh. The tomatoes and brilliant yellow sun flowers sing of a bright summer day.

Hi Robin, thank you! Another 100 degree day here, hope this cools me off a bit...have a very nice Monday, friend :D

Yikes Jenn, that is HOT! We're having abnormally cool temps here, mid-60s and 70s with our seasonal coastal fog in the mornings.

Bentobird said...

Wow, that sounds so refreshing Robin! Would love to share some clam chowder with you on such a day...

Beautiful bento once again Jenn! The shrimp and mayo filled avocado is calling my name! Yummy.

Bentobird said...

Hi sweet Susan--thanks a bunch! Avo/shrimp/mayo always makes me happy, just one of those tasty combos that are always enjoyable...

Lyndsey said...

I love tomatoes in season - you can eat them like apples! Delicious looking avocado as well :)

Bentobird said...

Hi Lexi! So true, they are called "love apples" in French, right? Happy midweek!!
