I love being outdoors and picnics in particular, but the window in which the weather is pleasant enough (between being icy cold and steamy hot) is pretty narrow here. This spring I am determined not to waste a single sunny day! Every picnic is just another excuse to practice cute bento-making. I need a lot of practice... I suck at anything crafty as you can see from the broccoli monster's eyes. This bento was for my non-vegetarian husband by the way; the sun is made from a sausage.
|Boy's Day display near the orphanage: Unrelated to this post but pretty.|
The old port area of my town is being made over into a trendy esplanade, and I love it.
|Isn't it pretty?|
We had a picnic there recently with some friends and their kids. The water was so clear that we saw all sorts of marine life (much to the excitement of the children)
|This jellyfish was HUGE!|
|This fish was tiny!|
|This bento was delicious, if carb-heavy.|
|This is not a bento, but my students made it for me (because I am Australian) <3|
|This is also not a bento... but how massive is this bag of shiitake mushrooms in my local supermarket?!|
