What Are You Thankful For Blog Hop: Thankfulness Lunches

Today, the Bento Blogger and Friends are gearing up for Thanksgiving by sharing some things we are thankful for.  The time for stuffing sandwiches with cranberry sauce and mini pies in lunch will come, but today, we are just showing some thanks.

The Hubby's lunch.. see more below.
I have all of our lunches in one post, because one thing I am thankful for is family.  Note all the hearts in our lunches.  This is not a coincidence.


Waffles: 20g, ham & cheese: 1g, radishes, carrots & ranch: 3g, watermelon: 5g, apple slices: 4g

The Boy and Girl have small bananas for snack (not pictured, 28g).  The Boy's lunch is some curry waffles (no chutney), some ham with cheddar cheese hearts, radishes and carrots in a pea pod silicone container, with ranch dressing, along with watermelon and apple slices.  For his lunch, I want to say that I am thankful for the insulin he will receive to help his body digest this food.  Yesterday was World Diabetes Day, and I can't say enough how thankful I am for the tools we have to treat The Boy's Type 1 Diabetes.  I could go on, because it is something that I am passionate about, but this is a lunch blog, so on to the other lunches and other thankfulness.  For The Boy, I am also thankful that he is willing to try new foods (sometimes) and that he has a sudden fondness for radishes.


The Girl's lunch is a bed of spinach with pomegranate seeds (we are thankful for pomegranate season!), red grapes on a heart skewer, heart cheese (thankful for Cabot!) and ham, curry waffles (no chutney) and some apple slices.


The Hubby and I have a variation on the lunch I packed for The Girl.  We have a bed of spinach with Cabot cheddar and ham (heart shapes for The Hubby because I love him so very much), curry waffles with chutney, thank you very much, for us (I am thankful that my family likes Indian food so much!), along with some Naturebox Antioxidant boost (thankful for chocolate!), along with some red grapes - and I have some pomegranate seeds.  One reason that I used the spinach in my lunches is that I am thankful that The Hubby has come to love spinach, a vegetable he saw as the enemy when we first started dating.  Now, it is his favorite.

I have so much more to be thankful for, and in fact, on twitter, I am participating in a month of thankfulness, and I'm sharing something every day that I am thankful for.  It's good to think about such things.

Now, head on over to Biting the Hand that Feeds You to see what she's thankful for, and remember, this is a hop, so if you click on through, you should come back to me.  Finally, I am thankful for you, dear readers.  Thank you so much for inspiring me to share.

  9. Love your cute heart picks and waffles. I hope God sends us a cure for Diabetes. My grandma died of its complications, and my dad is suffering from it now. Sooner or later, it might pass down on me and my son too. So I'm praying harder that God may finally put an end to it. Wishing your family well.
