I am really thankful to my blog readers. What started as an experimental exercise in creativity has blossomed into an outlet to express myself, and share with people who read my blog. Many of them are interested in either vegetarian food, bento, or both, but I also have readers who are not connected with the bento blogosphere. It may just be pictures of my lunch and the occasional cupcake (I need to get back on the Cupcake Friday! bandwagon…), but I appreciate that people read and comment on my bento lunches. With the gratitude that I have for those who read my blog in mind, here is a bento giveaway.
I recently spent two days at a conference in Richmond, BC, and managed to find time to get some bento supplies! With my decision to keep my blog ad-free, I do not solicit companies to send me products to review, and therefore keep the blog creative, not commercialized. Blogging my lunches is an outlet, not a business (between teaching teenagers from September – June, and selling cupcakes in July and August, I am plenty busy enough already!). These supplies were purchased with personal funds. I was very happy to have found the following:
A very cute, slim (so can fit in a messenger bag quite nicely) bento, complete with chopsticks that fit under the lid and a belt to keep the tiers together. This box is around 600mL, which is usually the size of most of my bentos.
Readers will know that I’m all about the snacks – hypoglycemia isn’t fun, but snacks make it better – so here’s a matching, 250mL snack bento. You could probably put soup in here too, as it has a seal.
And to accessorize:
A bento bag with insulated layer, 2 sauce bottles, and some food cups. Everything to get you started is here!
To enter, and this giveaway is open worldwide (as long as you have a mailing address!), the rules are similar to my previous giveaway. Please tell me what you enjoy about the blog, and/or what you’d like to see more of. I want to make a blog that is pleasurable to read. I will use my gaming dice to choose a winner on February 3rd, at 1800 MST. Please leave me an email address if you are a blog reader, not a writer, so I can contact you if you are the winner to get your mailing details.
