Lunch Guest: Bentos On The Bayou!

Hello readers! This is Rebecca from Bentos on the Bayou,  and I could not be more honored to be your guest blogger today.  Cristi is a sweet friend and someone I admire so much, so when I found out her Sailor was coming home, I jumped on the chance to step in and offer to do a post for her.

While I absolutely adore Cristi, her amazing husband Andy is kind of a super hero at my house, quite literally.  I hope this week is truly wonderful and beautiful for these 7 people that so truly deserve it.  Thank you Andy for serving our country.  I have so much respect for you and know that words can never express the gratitude I feel for you and your fellow sailors, soldiers, pilots, etc.  Thank you Cristi (and all 5 of your beautiful children) for supporting him and all you do as a military family.

The lunch I am sharing today is simple, healthy and fun!  I truly love the plethora of colors available in fruits and vegetables and love to use as many of them as possible in my bentos.  As you can imagine, I was thrilled when I cut into this Chioggia beet!  I didn’t realize it was this variety until I cut into it and saw the candy cane stripes.  I was absolutely giddy!!
