Look What Just Turnip'd!

I found some great stuff at the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market this past Wednesday, and was able to use a lot of it to fill this bento. Jill at Crescent Moon Farms always has really interesting and unique veggies. I bought this bunch of Hakurei Turnips from her, and made little steamed turnip buddies for my lunch.

Also in this bento box lunch: a bed of purple rice, lettuce from Ridgeview Farms, some orange bell pepper slices, and teriyaki chicken meatballs (Aidells brand!). In the lower compartment: turnip greens sauteed with garlic, red pepper flakes, and a little bit of soy sauce, cucumber slices (also from Crescent Moon Farms), and rainier cherries from Hamlow Ranches (another great vendor at the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market). This is a new bento box that I picked up at Daiso in Seattle.

Here are the young hakurei turnips with their greens. Jill says to try slicing them and eating them raw. They really are tasty!

And here is Jill! Find her at the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and she is also at the Sebastopol Farmers Market on Sundays.

This bento box and another bento box that I got at Daiso in Seattle have a really odd manufacturer, or logo. Check it out: LUBE SHEEP. What the...?!


  1. Very cute Bento and nice Bento-Box! I have the same!! ^__^ Are there little rabbits or two cute alien-faces? :p

  2. Ganz genau! I thought it looked like an alien at first too. I guess it depends on your mood: bunny or alien. :-)
