What Are You Thankful For Bento Hop


Bento Bloggers & Friends Thanksgiving Hop - What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for many things, but the most thankful for my family. I love sharing my favorite childhood memories with them. 

So last week we visited the land of Oz. One of my most treasured Thanksgiving memories is watching this movie every year, and now I'm sharing that experience with my monkeys. Reading The Wizard of Oz by L.Frank Baum with them is priceless. Below is the Cowardly Lion lunch I did for Green Monkey. To check out the rest of their friends along the yellow brick road, check out last week's post here.

  Courage pretzels, Ham and cheese cowardly lion sandwich, grapes and PB celery spelling out Oz.

My second favorite Thanksgiving movie is A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving by Charles M. Schulz. So this week I made Snoopy serving the Peanuts gang Popcorn, Pretzels, Jellybeans, and 2 pieces of buttered toast (Leftover turkey and cheese sandwich). Snoopy is a turkey and cheese sandwich with a cute pilgrim cookie hat. A friend directed me to a great tutorial on Our Best Bites, they are so adorable and delicious I couldn't help but make a batch.

*Bonus points when green monkey came home from school he said, "Guess what we watched at school today momma? The Charlie Brown show" Score one for me and lucky timing.


This wonderful group of  bloggers have come together to bring you a taste of Thanksgiving to inspire you for next week's lunches.
