PAX is less than 2 weeks away!
YES! My boyfriend and I are going to PAX Prime in Seattle this year!
We were so extremely amazed, satisfied, and moved by PAX East when we went in March, we decided to go to PAX Prime, non-work related and completely for our pleasure. It’s going to be so much fun!!
I’ve been working on something to bring to PAX! But, I’m not sure if I can finish it, so I’m not going to post it here just yet to save myself from embarrassment… Besides, this is a bento blog, and I feel like I should write something food related for a change.
My boyfriend and I are a 3 minute walk away from Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. We totally don’t take advantage of living so close to Grand Army Plaza like we should. They have farmers’ market every Saturday morning and you can get so much fresh local produce food there.
We usually sleep in on Saturday morning, but we got up early and went there last Saturday. The food we got there was so good that we decided to go to the farmers’ market again this morning.
I’m not going to lie. I don’t always know what’s in season. If you go to a regular supermarket, you can tell which food’s in season by a slight difference in price. But at a farmers’ market, it’s so clear and easy to know which food’s in season because you just see it EVERYWHERE! It’s perfect for a lazy food lover like me.
We had some and they were absolutely amazingly juicy. You bite into a peach, and it kind of explodes with juiciness and melts away in your mouth. It was sensational.
We boiled them, and ate it with a bit of butter and salt. It was very sweet.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get any. There were just so many different kinds of tomatoes we’ve never even heard or seen before and we couldn’t pick one! We might look up a good recipes for tomatoes and get them later this week.
Also this is one of my favorite pickles you could get at farmers’ market and also at Whole Foods.
Windy city wasabeans by Rick’s Pick. They’re not as hot as you’d think from the name. They’re crispy and you can’t stop once you start eating it. The Whole Foods at Union Square used to carry them but they didn’t have them the last time I was there. I got this one at the farmers’ market at Grand Army Plaza. They have so many different great pickles and you can get them online too! Go check out their site! (You can also check the list of their retail partners in your area.)
My boyfriend’s been making lunch for both of us recently, and he loves avocado.
I feel spoiled but he looooves cooking and not lazy like I am. Maybe he’ll start making bento someday…
