late august market, smoked fish sandwich bento




Hi bento pals! On overcast Saturday morning before Hurricane Irene's (thankfully understated) arrival in the DC area, I walked over to the farmers market and found late-summer produce still abundant and vibrant...look at these peaches!


Plums in jewel tones hint at fall's rich colors...




Today's bento features market snow pea tops and nasturtium (the little blue flowers are edible borage blooms), a purple market pepper filled with Tzatziki (cucumber-yogurt salad), whole grain toast spread with scallion cream cheese and lush slices of smoked sablefish plus a little half-sour dill pickle.

A sweet white peach for dessert...I've really enjoyed peaches this summer in their many delicious varieties.


Have a super week and happy cooking!

Hi there Susan, thanks so much! Happy Tuesday...

Hi Kay, how are things? Must visit your blog to see what beautiful food you've been making of late...

Hi Debra! Thanks indeed and I hope you've had a great summer :)

Hi Sheri! I love these purple cute peppers from the farmers market and yes, raw onion adds a nice bite to so many things. So healthful, too...

Hi Anja! Raining again, oh no! After a very rainy Saturday from the storm, we'll have clear skies for a few days here...

Wishing you a lovely day, rain or shine! Any fun cooking projects planned?

wow, those peaches look so good! Glad Irene did not cause you too much pain - I've been worried about my US based blog friends.

Savory smoked fish contrasting with cool cucumber and fragrant juicy peaches. Oh yummy Jenn!

While it seems summer goes by so quickly I do admit I love this time of year. Thanks for taking on a tour of the season.

Hello karmucaycuquino! thanks for your visit and I loved checking out your coloful blog!

Thanks Lexi dear, always a treat to hear from you ^^!

Dear Arudji, its SO cool to see your comment as I was just thinking about you this morning, sorry for not being in touch these last few months and I hope you are doing great!

Hi Anja, must go check out your homemade ravioli pics, sounds too delicious!

Hi Robin! Smoked sable is a real treat so I savored this lunch on a busy Monday. I agree, this is a wonderful time of year as summer starts to merge into fall and a special ripe sweetness is in the air (and on the table). Talk to you soon :)

I love the onion on top of the fish. The circular pattern and pretty purple lines look great with the pepper and flowers. I'm glad you didn't have trouble with Irene!

Aw, thanks Heather, such thoughtful comments!
