I don't have any grand Sakura pics to post but I tell you spring makes me feel like fresh food & good clean dirt for gardening in. Time to get a late start on the herbs.
I get tired of the same old "bento" fare for picnics & like to keep it fresh with salads, breads or cold pastas. My present obesession is to have a Lebanese picnic with the whole deal of flat bread w/ Zaatar, tabbouleh, hummus & labneh etc...
Here are a couple favorites I featured many moons ago. I'm not very tall but I stand by them all:
Cold red pepper soup
Tomato Torta (this is great cold too)
Fresh Tomato & basil pasta
Basil Rice & Balsamic Soy-sauce chicken
Greek Salad. (no link, but baby, if you haven't had feta you haven't lived!!)
Macha o' le
Blood Orange Iced Tea
Tomato Mozzarella Salad (I always bring whole tomatoes & a knife if I want to use them for a picnic)
What'd you have for your sakura picnic? Besides chu-his & happo-shu, I mean.
Gotsta get a move on dinner, have a lovely spring day, friend.
