spring flowers

Spring is here! It's only March, but the April showers AND the May flowers are here already. And as Ryan would tell you, the Mayflowers bring...Pilgrims! LOL

Ryan's lunch: tofu salad sandwich; apple slices; Tofurky asparagus rolls; baby carrots; steamed broccoli.

I think my paring knife needs sharpening! It was mangling the apple peel (which admittedly wasn't so firm unfortunately). I need to become more adept at knife sharpening.

Catching up on my food from the weekend...

Yum! Your apple looks very nice! I find that for some reason a serrated knife cuts the apple knife better than a paring.

We're heading to Boston on Friday to visit my grandparents. Do you know of any shops there that carry bento or bento supplies? :D

There are some small shops in Chinatown that have limited bento supplies, and Super 88 market. And a few specialty shops on Newbury St. and in Cambridge in Harvard & Porter Squares.
But the place I've heard has the cheaper & best selection is Kam Man Market in Quincy (just south of Boston). I am dying to get over there to check it out myself! Are you spending the night? I was considering a trip in to Boston on Saturday actually...

Ooo I think I will have to convince my dad that it's a must see stop then!

We'll be staying for a few nights but I'm not sure yet what our itinerary is :D

Wow, that apple work is brilliant! Love the flowers along the sandwich too :)

Nice idea carving a decoration into the apple skin! very delicate :o)

Jenn, I've actually had the opposite experience. I use serrated knives for the majority of my kitchen work, but I find they rip up the edges of the design on fruit skins. I gotta get me a good sharpener and the skills to use it properly!
