Bento #90 is just a small one, but full of earhtly goodies! Let’s call it a vote of confidence in the climate conference that is being held in Kopenhagen these days… Okay? :\

Earth bento #90It contains oven roasted root vegetables (onion, potato, Jerusalem artichoke, parsnip & celeriac) on a bed of corn salad, accompanied by a specially cut gherkin and crowned by a goat’s cheese star. Stewed pears on the side.

Except for the gherkin everything is organic. I guess I could have made the traditional Japanese Switchback Cut a bit sharper (and it looks better on veggies with a discernible skin anyway), but hey I am proud of it! :)

So don’t say that you don’t know what I’m talking about — just look closer! ;)

Except for the cheese and gherkin all ingredients are organic & local.

Advertenties

Today’s bento is a mix of several Asian dishes. Yes, Gnoe likes her Asian foodies :)

Upper tier

  • Indian egg-tomato curry (one of our all-time favourites!)
  • Japanese edamame
  • Indonesian nasi goreng
  • gherkin fox
  • cucumber
  • two types of parsley
  • on a bed of lettuce

Lower tier

  • Indonesian emping
  • raspberries and red currants
  • yoghurt coated apricot
  • carrots
  • basil
  • and another fox

Selamat makan!

I present to you: Thursday 9th of July’s bento (#60).

Upper tier:

  • quiche wedge (rocket salad*, potato*, pine nuts, cheese, egg*)
  • basil*
  • seedless grapes
  • red & black currants*
  • homegrown bean sprouts*
  • radish
  • emmental La vache qui rit cheese
  • homegrown garden cress*

Lower tier

  • beet* salad on romaine leaves* (go to bento #59 for ingredients)
  • gherkin
  • radish
  • dill*

All ingredients marked with ‘*’ were organic. We got some new garden beet in our veggie bag this week. What shall we prepare with them this time? Their leaves, which are almost the same as (Swiss) chard and can be processed like spinach, we already ate in a Italian pasta sauce.

Veggiebag week 28-2009
I decided I would like to be able to look up what came in our weekly Aardvlo bag of organic vegetables. At the end of each year there’s a questionnaire about what you would love to get more often — or what you didn’t like so much. A question that’s easier to answer when you can remember what you got! :-o

So, week 28 of 2009 brought us: a whole bag of basil (we made some fresh pesto sauce and used that on bruschettas, in a salad dressing and for a pasta salad), a head of lettuce, leeks (we had some oven steamed with cheese; there’s one stalk left which we will probable eat with nasi goreng), tomatoes, red beet with leaves, red and black berries.

Are you all really jealous now? ;)

Elma from Chasing Chatwin gave me some chocolate euros to use in my bento. How appropriate on the day Michael Jackson died! The ancient Greeks put money in the mouth of a deceased, for paying Charon (ferryman of the river Styx) to bring his / her soul to the world of the dead.

I didn’t have much preparation time so I had to get through the day with just one tier of food in bento #57 :\

Contents
Chocolate money (obviously), radishes with gherkin, raspberry vinegar and dill, mushroom noodles, broccoli with black & white sesame seeds, walnut and nori seaweed.

Having just admitted to being a teenager in the Eighties, you might have guessed I was a Michael Jackson fan in those days. I even had a poster hanging on the wall (among many others though ;) No matter what came of him in later years, he was and still is an icon. I find it a fascinating idea that on Friday June 26th, a huge part of the world population has been playing Wacko Jacko’s songs all day on the radio, television, internet and at home. It’s so profound it’s almost unimaginable.

RIP MJ. And now, life goes on.


Okee, niet iedere bento kan een schoonheidsprijs winnen ;) Ik moest vandaag weer aan het werk en had gisteravond opeens veel meer voor te bereiden dan verwacht… Bovendien is onze koelkast door de vakantie wat slecht uitgerust qua veggies en restjes. Bento #53 werd dus niet meer dan dit.Bento #53 (a quicky) by you.

  • plakjes radijs en augurk
  • SkyFlakes crackers (verstopt)
  • geroosterde amandelen met mediterrane kruiden (uit Madeira)
  • humus
  • mijn laatste geitenkaas babybel uit Frankrijk
  • basilicum en mini pruimtomaatjes
  • ontbijtkoekboompjes en honing voor erbij

Goed smaken deed het toch wel! :))

Thursday and Friday were moving days at the office. For me, Friday was the first day in the new building. I brought a bento with side dishes since I didn’t know yet how hungry I would be from all the hard labour, nor if I would be able to buy any food in or near the office site (it’s not located near town anymore). But there seems to be a canteen that I can go check out next week.
