Thinking of Spring

So many Spring things to do - seeds to plant, spring cleaning..   So it's time to add flowers to the bento - made from pickled beets, and with a cheese center.  Cheese centers to the cucumber slices in the salad, too.  Homemade croutons.  I just butter a slice of bread and pan-toast it on both sides, then cut up in cubes (usually) or in this case I used a round linzer cookie cutter.

The local ingredients are slim pickings.  Cabot cheese, bread,  and the stems for the flowers, which are from sprouted onions.

This bento: fried rice with onions and asparagus, pickled beets, cheese, onion tops, bagged salad, homemade croutons, cucumber, Ranch dressing, Jordon Almonds

Local foods: Cabot cheese, bread fromLa Panciata, onion stems.
