The other day I had some time on my hands.
I was waiting for the delivery guy. He was scheduled to come between 9 and 12.
Not knowing if he would come at 9 or closer to 12 (or somewhere in-between), I decided to make some dishes for dinner and make a bento to take to the park for lunch.
I started with these purple carrots. I whizzed them in the food processor along with 1 orange carrot and make this...
Carottes râpées au miel (grated carrots with honey)
Awhile back, Kazumi had given me these sakura(cherry blossoms) preserved in salt.
I used 3 of the blossoms to make musubi. NOTES: this is super salty, so wash off the salt before using!
Another dish I made was Spring Cabbage Tuna Salad.
I added some leftover teriyaki, a tamagoyaki (rolled omelette) and some rakkyo (pickled scallions).
And wouldn't you know it, lunchtime came around, so I started eating and the delivery guy came...
oh well, didn't get to bring this bento to the park, but did go walking after lunch.
Hope your week is going well, we're having a cold snap and rain today.
