bento picnic in the park
Yesterday we had a great day, my mom told me to not come to the office, so I had another full day with Bunny. The bad news is that when she arrived at her office, it had been broken into! Someone took the computer I use and a dvd player she uses for training employees. How sad. It's weird, she had a brand new flat screen t.v. there and it stayed. Must have been too big too carry or something. Well, it is a good thing she has insurance, but it's still hard, she just started the office up not that long ago.
We decided to go for a picnic, the weather was overcast, but it was still enjoyable to be outdoors.
Columbia Park is about 5 blocks away from my house. I love this park because of all the trees. It reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. This park has a community pool that I go swimming at sometimes, they also offer art classes in an old cottage on site.
Our bentos had broiled salmon with dill, brown rice, and curried peas. And I love my little soy bottles from Daiso!
We also had cubed Gyurue cheese, left over from the beer bread, I love this cheese so much, it makes me drool a little when I eat it!
For dessert we had these cute little "Le Petit Ecolier" (means "the little schoolboy" in french) that bunny brought home from his work the other day. They were lovely.
The bentos were the perfect picnic food, easy to transport and clean up. It was such a pleasant afternoon, I can't wait to come up with more creative bentos in the future. I want to make them cuter and more creative. I am also excited for when the weather is nicer and our picnics won't just be in the park, but also in the Mountain Hood forest!!!! But I am totally content with the beautiful park for now! Bunny is back at work today, so that means its back to the books, to study for finals. Wish me luck!
