Cherry blossom carrots
May 10, 2009
Whenever I fly back from a visit in Vancouver, my mom always makes me a bento lunch to bring on the plane. I flew to Amsterdam yesterday and in my bento I found among many inari, a green onion omelette and genmai matcha teabags, carrots that were cut by hand to resemble cherry blossoms. I remembered she had gotten up a bit early to make prepare it for me and as I ate those carrots I was filled with so much love for this perfect bento box and the extraordinary person who made it.
