New Bamboo Utensils

Luna surprised me this week with a sweet set of Bamboo utensils (knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks), and they are amaaaazing.

Ok, part of the reason I find them amazing is because I don't care for metalware. (Shall I explain? Nah, maybe some other time.) So usually, be it at home or at Plum, I am using plasticware.
It takes a lot for me to be embarrassed enough of my weirdness to use an actual metal fork.
This is what I usually use:

(also awesome) They say they're BPA-free, but they're plastic, so... who knows.

Anyway, Bamboo! Definitely not bad to put in my mouth three times a day.

The spoon is featured here with a perrrrrfect bowl of oatmeal (made on the stove with coconut milk, water, salt, cinnamon, oats and raisins) served with the best maple syrup of all time, which Luna got from a vendor at the Georgetown Carnival.

The fork is seen here alongside a late-night dinnerish snack I whipped up -- roasted garlic, local asparagus and broccoli, mushrooms and organic tofu over garlic basil penne pasta (I had eaten a few bites before I remembered to take a picture).

Also, here's a picture I took of a bee on a chive blossom:
Have you ever had a chive blossom? They are DELICIOUS - sweet, spicy, onion-like but (obvs) with the texture of a flower. These ones were growing in the Ballard pea patch, and I may have foraged a few for myself.

The oatmeal cooked in coconut milk looks yummy. I have seem utensils like this before.

I have a vicious love/hate relationship with your blog. LOVE the food, pictures, stories, imagery and Darcy-isms but HATE that I can't actually experience any of it. I think I need to eat some lunch before I read your next entry so I'm not so sad. :)
