Thank You Sweetie!

It's almost American Thanksgiving! Another holiday, another Bento Bloggers & Friends Blog Hop...  right? Well, yes...  but maybe not what you're expecting... Instead of the traditional turkey, pilgrims, & pumpkin pie themes, one of our bloggers, Ludicrous Mama of Biting the Hand That Feeds You, came up with a twist: A "What are you thankful for?" theme!


I'm thankful for a lot of things, but most of all for my Sailor Boy, who not only puts up with my flaws & quirks, but somehow finds them cute, and who, after 17 years of marriage, I'd still rather spend time with than anyone else.

Thank you Sweetie! I love you ♥ Enjoy your lunch :)


Sailor Boy's EasyLunchboxes bento contains:
  • Strawberries & cantaloupe - with an anchor pick - because he's a sailor, and because he's MY anchor
  • Romaine salad with carrots & cucumber, & mandarin dressing in an EasyLunchboxes Mini Dipper (on the side)
  • Turkey kielbasa "hearts" left over from our pierogi skillet supper
  • Skewered cherub & sunburst tomatoes (Thanks Mamabelly for the Southwest Airlines heart swizzle stick "skewers"!)
  • Pistachios - because I'm still nuts about him after all these years
  • & a Babybel cheese decorated with wedding ring picks and carved with the words "I still do." ♥


That's the perfect Lunchbox Love note for this lunch, don't you think? It's from one of the Lunchbox Love for Loved Ones sets from Say Please. On the flip side is a bit of trivia. This note's fact was a funny coincidence to me, because I had joked with my blogger friends that what I was most thankful for most days was coffee, so maybe that would be the theme of my bento :) I was kidding (sort of), but coffee ended up being a part of the lunch anyways, heheh:



Now click the button to hop over to Licious Lunches and see what she's thankful for & how she's expressed it in a bento!
