Bento Momo


This is one of those bolts of revelation in my life where the design is so awesome, so RIGHT, so sensible and it works!  How did I not have this before now??!!  Just glad I have it now and to let anyone out there know   It's worth getting!!



Love, love. love this, stacks up slim and small fits into any nursery bag.  Best thing, the food doesn't get messed up, unlike the large, flat, compartmental containers which has to be placed vertically into the bag and all the food pours to one side.
Here food is stacked and stays in place, perfect!!!
Plus the little forkies keeps small grubby fingers from contaminating the food.

Love, love, love.  So does kiddo.


Just to show the width comparison -  next to my mobile phone.
Super slim can fit vertically in any child's bag!
Food stays in place and any spillage avoided. Perfect!

Capers pickling



This bush is the most vicious ever, I've encountered.  The thorns are hook-like and vengeful claws dig deep and too easily!  Approach with deepest caution..or desperation for heavenly caper harvesting

In abundance!  Little wonder the thorns here is one of Natures on-Prozac nastiest deterrent...almost 


Soaking in water for a about a week,  Then to transfer to brine..so the recipes says..



 Changed water every day for about a week.  There was a odor each time the lid was opened, but this was fine and as should be.  So don't worry.  Capers gradually changed  colour from vibrant green to a khaki colour and the water is slightly scarlet.


 Ready for tasting.



Delicious, stalks and all.  Even the ones that opened slightly to a flower, My favourites were the tiny ones,   Worth all the pain against those vicious hooks on the caper bush.
