The Early Bird

I got a really early start today. Already hit the Farmer's Market... super sweet strawberries, clementines, leeks, onions, asparagus (thinking soup.)

I walked to the Nut Shop and bought way too many yummy fresh roasted nuts which I already know I will need to portion out in snack size Ziplocs.

I also went to the grand opening of a new Bakery. Nope, not for me.. it's for my Mum she loves her bread. She luckily has the metabolism of a 14-year old boy. I have the metabolism of a Sumo wrestler.

All that before 10 AM.

It is an absolutely gorgeous day. It's going to be 82 degrees. I'm taking my bento box of snacks to the park. Weather like this is a gift and you just can't stay inside...

They are fun. I'm having a blast figuring out stuff to put in them and... it's getting me to go outside more. I bought just the boxes (I got 2 sets) because I'm making bags for them. The only crafty thing I do besides cook is make funky tote bags. Here's some of them...

More bento box questions: Have you packed them yet with anything leakable? I always pack my lunch for work but coworkers have a tendency to rearrange the fridge at will so containers with lids are a must and that set only has 2 compartment lids, right? I'm using my own funky fabric lunch bag sized for my small containers but would rather have something even smaller like your set.

Crazy question, are you able to eat all that you pack in your box. I am unsure of the size and was just wondering. I had my GBS in 2007.

Nope I share :) These hold a lot... well I did eat everything once by myself but I packed snacks and lunch so I just spread it out but generally I share with someone.
