Peko Peko’s Early Spring Bento arrived today in this unbelievably soothing printed paper and red string. Perfect since it was an early birthday gift from me to Rimpletide! I love the Golden Gate graphic+little cars!
The pork cutlet and rolled omelette were amazing, but my Oprah a-ha moment was the crab and rice. Ah-ma-zing. Steamed Dungeness crab, Tamaki Gold rice, hand-made ginger pickle (ginger, sugar, umeboshi vinegar), sancho, and salt. The hand-made ginger pickle really took things to the next level.
We sat, ate, and smiled.
Thanks Peko Peko!
It’s been a hard week; lots of work and little rest. I wasn’t sure I would make it to Friday afternoon. On a just-before-closing-run to Rockridge Market Hall browsing for beer, I spotted my new FAVORITE thing sitting in the refriegerator: Organic Apple Juice with Elderflower from Luscombe. I’m not a huge juice person–unless there’s some beet and spinach in there I figure it’s not really that good for me. But when it comes to Luscombe I know the ingredients are top notch, and frankly with that flavor, I could care less.
Thanks to Luscombe I know today will be a good day! Soothe!
PS: additional soothing element: check out the top left corner of their website, which reads, “wine of wild orchards, juice of these valleys.” Wildness soothes.
