My first guest post! A wombat bento, of course!

I am so very excited (even more than normal, I've had to tone down my use of exclamation marks because they took up the majority of this page), because today I am doing a guest post for.... *drum roll*... Jill Colonna! If you didn't know by now, Jill is the author of 'Mad About Macarons!: Make Macarons Like the French' (oh la la), and an inspiration to macaron lovers and foodies everywhere.


And not only is Jill herself a super lovely and funny person, she also has a awesome blog that I like to spend time (when I'm supposedly doing my dissertation) drooling over the photos on. So when Jill asked me to a guest post, I thought, wow. A real blogger wanting a post by little me on their site? Yes please! We've been in touch ever since last summer to try and arrange a guest post but I really wanted to make something very 'me'  for the egg yolk series on Jill's site, and with academicy work related things it has taken me 6 months to finally think of something I was proud of :)

I decided on an egg yolk bento because bentos are my latest 'thing', plus a wombat theme dedicated to someone special :) Plus a story about me, a hen, and an egg.

Be sure to hop over to Jill's site and check it out here!

A guest post! So eggsciting!

  7. Congrats on the guest post - that's a lovely blog to be invited to. I really like your bento.

    Your wombat is much cuter than the one my mother-in-law hated because it burrowed under her favorite tree and killed it. :)

  8. Love your bento boxes. Congratulations, Jill's site is a splendid one indeed, but yours is pretty good too :)
