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.

DETAILS OF THE LOOT!

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 random.org.  You will have 72 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

Another day of lunch at home.  In an effort to teach my kids about other religions, we have a bunch of dreidels in the house and we’re talking about how some of our friends began their Hanukkah celebration yesterday.  For the Festival of Lights I put the 2 candles on their sandwiches made of Pocky sticks with cheese “flames”.  Little Miss A had a dreidel shaped sandwich with blue sunflower seeds for the Gimel on top with turkey and cheese on whole grain bread.  She also had a side of blueberries with white chocolate covered sunflower seeds mixed in.

Miss G had a PB & J on whole grain in the Star of David shape. Slices of avocado are on either side.   She got a provolone dreidel with blue sunflower seed Shin on it.  She also had Pocky stick candles with colby jack “flames on top.  Happy Hanukkah to all my friends who are celebrating!

We’re off school next week and headed out of town so I have to get my Thanksgiving lunches done in the next couple of days.  This one was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  Just a soy butter and jelly on whole wheat with a carrot beak, fruit leather waddle and candy eyes.  His feathers are apple and carrot slices. Raspberries are to the left and heirloom grape tomatoes are in the squirrel cup.  Also included are an applesauce, Lifeway berry kefir & ice water.

Little sis gets some fall festive sandwiches in turkey, pumpkin & acorn shapes with just turkey inside.  Colby Jack cheese leaves are above with raspberries.  Also included in her lunch are Craisins, and applesauce, Lifeway berry kefir and ice water too.  Both girls’ lunches are packed in LunchBots stainless containers.

Happy fall Tuesday!

We’re at home on a rainy day so the girls both got a small hand sandwich 🙂  It’s actually havarti and turkey on whole grain, but they thought it was funny.  They also had some milk, blueberries and mandarin oranges today with lunch. Enjoy your week!
