bastille day bento


Hi guys and Happy Bastille Day! We celebrated with a visit to the Costeaux Bakery and Cafe, a Healdsburg institution for 90 years.


Totally delicious blackberry macarons...


Chewy wonderful thin baguette sandwiches...had a super goat cheese and salami version




Tasty French onion soup...


Smoked duck salad


Local berries salad




Some images from our walk around Healdsburg...









A cute bag from the Mr. Moon paper shop...




This bento includes roast duck from Costeaux, local green figs, French breakfast radish and a multigrain roll....


Enjoy the rest of the weekend, mes amis!

Greetings, Lexi, so nice to "see" you here! I love duck, too, especially when its richness is given a fresh contrast of some kind...
