I went to Washington DC on Saturday to see the cherry blossoms. with one of my best friends and my boyfriend. Sadly, there weren’t any cherry blossoms actually blooming, and since we payed for tickets with a local tour bus, it wasn’t like we could really reschedule the trip. A super bummer, but not much I can do aside from risk driving in DC(a city that I’m not very familiar with driving in) with a car that has issues about a hundred miles away from home. Yeah, I’m not going to risk that trip. :(
We ended up going to a few museums and my vegan friend(none of the others in our group are vegan) and I managed to finish this whole big bento. It was annoying to tote around, so I think in the future I will be using it for places where I can go back and put it in my car easily. I also need to make a bento band for it.
This bento had so much food! I first cut up star-fruit(carambola), then fried up some Gardein, made vegan sushi rolls, cut up a sweet red bean paste bar, a few pieces of dark chocolate with espresso beans, heart shaped kiwi, dried fruit and Graze’s summer berry flapjacks. In the two bunny cups are soy sauce for the sushi rolls.
I also think that next time I might go with a build your own sandwich sort of motif. This one took a really long time to make, how do the people in Japan, going to all these festivals, find the time to make such extravagant bento?
Anyway, this bento was delicious but it was a lot of food for two people with lighter appetites. I could have filled up two tiers of a Monbento box and our bellies would have been quite content.
