asparagus and lamb salad bento


Hi bento pals! A quick lunch for a radiant and springlike day...the kind where breezes are edged with birdsong and a mild delicious chill that sings of the new season arriving!

In the bento we have a buttery stir fry of asparagus combined with lamb in a Greek yogurt-mayo dressing accented with fresh tarragon and green peppercorns. Plump cherry tomatoes and a sweet fruit section of champagne mango and a heart-accented clementine. The bento is resting on a lush bed of periwinkle, a sweet harbinger of spring with delicate yet tough little blooms in one of my very favorite colors.




Delicate pale pink magnolia twilight flower captured on an early evening walk....


Happy cooking and bentoing this week, friends!

Luscious and vibrant the brightly flavored bento shines amidst brilliant purple periwinkle.

The twilight image of the magnolia blossom echos the warmth of an extended spring evening.

What a joyful post!
