I am thankful for YOU! Vegan turkeys and a Giveaway(ended 11/29/2012)

Posted on: November 21, 2012

I promised to do a giveaway when I got to 1000 likes on Facebook.  I didn’t forget!  This Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for many things, family, friends, a wonderful house and neighborhood, my group of bento bloggers who have been so supportive, and I’m also grateful for you.  Yes, YOU!   I started this blog as a way of helping a handful of friends with creative ideas, and now there are almost 1100 people on Facebook alone that follow bentoriffic, over 600 on twitter (bentoriffic) , over 600 on Instagram (bentoriffic), over 500 on Pinterest and the list goes on.  I really am grateful that you care, comment, read and offer suggestions.  I’ve gone from carnivore to vegan, inspired and creative to some days just throwing it together like we moms do some days.  I appreciate you sticking with me through it all.  THANK YOU!!!

These are the only turkeys my kids are eating this year.  I used pie crust cutters I had from last year as sandwich cutters.

My 4 year old’s lunch is a flock of turkeys on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread stuffed with almond butter.  Above the turkeys are a sliced kiwi and cashews.  In the top compartments are pineapple, honeydew and cantaloupe pieces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

My 2 year old from the top left has raspberries, 2 of the same turkey shaped sandwiches on almond butter, maple leaf shaped watermelon pieces and dried cherries, Marcona almonds with maple leaf dried apricots on top packed in her LunchBots Quad.


I decided on 2 separate prizes for the giveaway.

The first person will win the following:

1 complete set of Easy Lunchboxes

1 CuteZCute cutter kit

2 sets of cookie cutter shapes and 3 sets of bento picks

The first drawing is open to residents of North America only.

The second prize will be a $35 credit to spend at Bento USA by All Things For Sale and is open to readers worldwide.

All you have to do to enter to win is leave me a comment telling me what you are grateful for this year and in which country you live.  Please make sure you leave me a way to contact you, please!

Both winners will be chosen when the contest ends on Wednesday, November 28th at 11:59pm by  You will have 72 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
