brie, turkey tartine bento, autumn explorations

 
Hi friends! Today's bento features a toasted sourdough tartine layered with turkey, brie and sharp-sweet green apple. A colorful bed of kale sautéed with garlic and brightened with a bit of lemon (our trees are full right now!) also inside.
 
I found this wonderful fox/kitsune figurine from a Japanese ceramicist a few years back, and I love his tawny autumnal coloring and clever little face:
 
 
So far November has offered brilliant skies and ideal weather for putting in the winter garden (rainbow chard, kale, some new-to-me Italian greens called Cavolo Broccolo Spigariello) and also Siberian iris and a few new camellias, of course--I'm addicted!
 
Some images from our drive to Freestone and Sebastopol this weekend, where we visited Wildflour Bakery for great breads, scones and bucolic relaxation in its always changing kitchen garden:

At Rose and Thorn, we loved visiting with these beautiful creatures:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
See you again soon...

That looks refreshingly delicious! I envy your frequent trips to Wildflour, and I miss those Meyer lemon scones...

Hi Sheri! Meyer lemon scone?! That's a type I have not tried yet--great tip! Enjoy early November's light and color :)

I will trade you some halloumi for a bit of that brie :) The combination of the turkey, brie, and tart apple sounds heavenly.
