A Narrow Window & Bento Lunchbox Giveaway

This was the scene in my kitchen Saturday:

I had friends over to help me with the abundance of apples and tomatoes that I have coming in at one time.  We made homemade catsup, applesauce, apple juice, and apple cakes.  I even snuck into the kitchen while we were eating dinner and wrapped my friends up  “thank you for working for hours and hours” apple cakes.

After church on Sunday, Gregg and I went back out into the garden and stripped all of the cherry tomatoes – that’s what we used to make the catsup and this time I’m going to make tomato sauce, tomato paste, and hot sauce.  I have apple juice that needs to be turned into apple jelly, and more and more apples that need to be turned into apple pie filling, dried on the dehydrator, made into apple sauce, made into apple butter, and canned to be used for things like apple muffins and fried apples.

I have a narrow window to work with produce that will go bad very quickly.  Consequently, something has to give.  Homeschool will suffer for a week and this blog is going to have to take back burner.

Thankfully, I have been saving a ton of sandwich and wrap recipes.  I saved them for when school started.  Since most of the country has already started or will start sometime in the next couple of weeks, I think this is a good week to do that.

For the rest of this week, I’ll post recipes for sandwiches and wraps for lunch ideas.  On Friday, I’ll post a big “sack lunch ideas” post.

That’s where the giveaway comes in.

Anyone who replies to this post with a healthy and thrifty and homemade  sack lunch idea will be entered to win a Laptop Lunch B620-Purple Bento Set 2.0 with Outer Container, 5 Inner Containers, and Accessories.  My friend Sara loves the Bentos her kids use, so thought a giveaway would wrap up this week of lunch ideas perfectly.

That’s it – just give us ideas.  No subscribe, tweet, Facebook – just leave a comment to this post.  There are no limits to the number of entries you can have, but every entry must be a separate comment.  And, if you have a link to a recipe online, it would be really nice if you included that in your comment – but it’s not required.

This giveaway will end Thursday, September 1st, at 8PM EST.  The winner will be announced on Friday’s lunch ideas post.

Good luck and have a great week!

[Disclaimer: This is not an ad for Bento.  They have neither contacted me nor offered me a product for a giveaway.  I just chose this particular lunchbox to tie into the whole “lunch box” concept.]
