Lunch for the Man: Farewell My Love

This is it, the last lunch I'll get to pack for my Sailor Boy for a long time. It's boat food for him for the next 9 months! Well, except when they are in port, then he'll get to eat amazing international dishes, right? Hope so! Farewell, my love. I wish you fair winds & following seas. Enjoy your lunch

Lunch might not look like much, but it's full of love. Sailor Boy missed having Thanksgiving dinner with us this year, but we froze & saved him a slice of the pumpkin pie Pickle & I baked! And oh, the cleverness of me, I thought ahead and cut it to fit in his EasyLunchbox :)

To go with his Thanksgiving dessert, he has turkey in gravy, topped with cheese, on a bed of rice. I put the turkey in a star-shaped silicone container meant for baking little cakes, so he could take it out to warm it up in the microwave then stir it into the rice. On the side he has pineapple & watermelon on blue heart picks. Blue because I'll be blue without him  

Okay, enough shmoopy. I'll miss making my Sailor Boy lunch, but it's not like I don't still have my 5 sproutlets to pack for :) And I can start planning a special homecoming bento... There's nothing like a military homecoming!
