Bartlet pear balls; lady apple; mini orange bell pepper, humanely-raised/nitrate free bacon by Applegate Farms; heirloom cherry tomatoes, half a pretzel roll (top featured here) and a slice of blood orange
Ah, pretzel bread! My family loves it, especially in autumn! If you’ve never tried it before or don’t know what it is, you can read about it here.
The pretzel bread featured in today’s bento is made with white wheat flour and is from our local bakery. Since it is not whole grain it gets filed under our “special treat” category.
Here is a recipe for Bavarian “bretzel” rolls (or more accurately, “Laugen Brötchen) if you’d like to try making them at home. Feel free to experiment with a whole grain version, and if you are successful please let me know so we can share the recipe!
