First Ever "Be Just Like Me for Free" Giveaway!

>> Monday, January 26, 2009

Updated: The winner is Mary from Shazam in the Kitchen! Congratulations Mary :)

1. goulash
2. rice with capers
3. fruit

I wasn't going to bother with posting this lunch. You've all seen it before. I wasn't going to talk about how much I love Jamie Oliver's spicy pork goulash recipe, or how he is totally going to be my new boyfriend. So I won't. But I do want to talk about this lunch container.

It's my favorite! Wanna know why? Because it's both yellow, AND orange. It seals. It holds a whoppin' 750mls. It cost less than one dollar and has held up like nobody's business. I actually bought two, thinking I'd need a spare. I don't. So guess what? I'm gonna give it to you! Or you. Or maybe you. And you don't even have to write a poem!

All you have to do is leave me a comment. Any comment. Unless it's mean. Cause I might delete it and then you won't win. I'll random number pick someone next Sunday (2/1/09) night after Big Love. And this is what you'll get!

A 750ml tight sealing container that is both yellow, AND orange. A brown bento belt. You don't -need- a belt, but how else will you attach your cute sunflower clip? Besides I like to wrap my utensil in a napkin and slip it under the belt and I know you wanna be just. like. me.

But wait Bob, there's more! Cause that's not the only thing I've over-bought. I'll pack it up with some accessories!

Oh, by the way. That box up there in the picture? That's mine. Yours is wrapped in plastic. You'll need to peel a crappy decal off the side when you get it but then you can just wash your hands and pretend it never happened. Nobody has to know.

Oh, by the way again. If you don't wanna be just. like. me. Why not be just. like. Shannon? Or pull out all the stops and be like Pikko! She's gonna make you work for it though :)

That is cute, i especially like the sunflower. I can see why you love it so much.

Mimi January 27, 2009 at 4:27 AM  

HAHA! You are too funny! Of course we want to be like you! That's why we read your blog!

eilis alana January 27, 2009 at 6:27 AM  

ohh I want to be like you!!!

And you know what - if I were to win I would share the prize - I am very into spreading the bento joy!

CulinaryAssassin January 27, 2009 at 6:39 AM  

I just started bento-ing and am trying to increase my collection (only have one so far!). This box is super cute!

Tina January 27, 2009 at 8:33 AM  

LOVE the sunflower! (and you should totally pick me because the first? yeah, that's two days before my birthday.)

Lindsey January 27, 2009 at 8:48 AM  

I'm glad you did a contest that doesn't make me show the world how inept I am with poetry! I also absolutely agree about the sunflower!

Yvo January 27, 2009 at 9:17 AM  

Ok I totally don't need more bento gear, but I had to enter just to show you some love and because I don't already have that box. lol. And your post is hysterical. :)

Gretchen January 27, 2009 at 9:34 AM  

I love boxes that seal! And my girls all have adorable bento boxes, but poor mom has only one goofy one! I make five bentos in the morning and its nice to have a little variety for myself once in a while, lol. What I really need to do is convince my husband to let me take a flight to SanFran to get a bunch of bento gear!

ChickenStamps January 27, 2009 at 9:44 AM  

Here is my lame haiku contest entry

Love to see bentos
Lunch Bucket Bento is fun
Do I win the prize?

Pam January 27, 2009 at 10:20 AM  

I love your bento boxes. I need to find the recipe for Jaime Oliver's goulash - it looks great.

Flying Lily January 27, 2009 at 11:30 AM  

I love that bento box! Must enter giveaway esp as it does not require me to embarrass myself by showing a bento of my own devising.

Sara January 27, 2009 at 2:41 PM  

The goulash? Solid goodness. Well, semi-solid and saucy goodness, really, but goodness no matter how you look at it!

Anonymous January 27, 2009 at 2:55 PM  

I love your bento! I even looked up the goulash recipe. Now I have to make it. Please consider me for the contest. :) rudegal08 at hotmail dot com. Thanks!

The Spiteful Chef January 27, 2009 at 3:37 PM  

Is that a piglet knife? Awesome. Count me in.

Carolyn G January 27, 2009 at 4:23 PM  

OMG this is so cute. THanks for the opportunity to win.

mcnairy January 27, 2009 at 5:19 PM  

Cute, cute cute. I don't own a Bento, but would love to.

cdziuba January 27, 2009 at 5:35 PM  

I love your happy fun giveaway!

Gayle January 27, 2009 at 5:59 PM  

I love it. I work 12 hour days so I'm looking for ones that size. I am not having any luck. Hopefully I will win one. ;)

Honestpuck January 27, 2009 at 6:13 PM  

I like the way in that Bento that you have used the rice to seperate the goulash from the fruit rather than having to use a seperator or two part Bento box.

(By the way, I always use captial B for Bento, is that right or should it be 'b'?)

Lisa~~ January 27, 2009 at 6:46 PM  

What fun, love the beautiful sunflower on the box, what a perfect match.

Mary January 27, 2009 at 7:10 PM  

What a cute box! I'd love to win it and be just like you!

Selba January 27, 2009 at 11:32 PM  

Hehehe... so cute!

p.s: love Jamie Oliver too ;)

Rajee January 28, 2009 at 7:00 AM  

So cute giveaway. I simply enjoy it.

jessleigh January 28, 2009 at 7:21 AM  

This is so cute! I really hope I win!

Tia January 28, 2009 at 7:37 AM  

Hi, Am new to Bento! Please include me in your Give away I need more gear :)

Wendy Taylor January 28, 2009 at 8:14 AM  

Oooh, oooh pick me! I just joined the bento craze and am spreading the love about waste-free lunches - bento-inspired - for elementary school children. My son's bento container is so boring; he would LOVE this yellow one. And the idea of strapping something on? Divine for a 6 year old boy!

Leslie January 28, 2009 at 11:19 AM  

I have been enjoying your blog for quite a while. Thanks for the opportunity to be just like you!

arkonite_babe January 28, 2009 at 11:52 AM  

I'm from Northern Ireland and find bento items very hard to get. I think I'm the only bento'er in the whole place over here!!! I'd love to give your gorgeous box a new and very happy home if possible :0)
My 10 year old daughter would be so proud if we won.

Cynthia A. January 28, 2009 at 11:53 AM  

Mmmm...that goulash looks yummy :)

Thank you for the contest!

Mel January 28, 2009 at 12:04 PM  

That is a fantastic Bento box! I need that kind of color on these cold winter days. My cacti plants provide me with greens and red, the fish tank with silver, but I am lacking orange an yellow unless the clouds clear for a beautiful sunset.

The Duo Dishes January 28, 2009 at 5:04 PM  

This would be perfect for our first foray into the land of bento boxes!

violarulz January 28, 2009 at 5:10 PM  

what a cute idea! putting a tacky hair clip on a lunch box strap. Why didn't I think of that myself!?

kristin January 28, 2009 at 9:37 PM  

Love the sunflower! I totally want to be like you...for free! Thanks for the great blog!

Julia January 29, 2009 at 7:21 AM  

Me! Me! Me! Oh please, random number greek god, pick me!


Love your blog, thanks for making me smile.


Allergy Mom January 29, 2009 at 9:05 AM  

Ooooh, I love the sunflower clip! Thanks for having such a great giveaway.

Julie January 29, 2009 at 8:49 PM  

You can have Jamie Oliver. He's goofy looking. And you already know I want to be like you.

Laurel January 29, 2009 at 9:47 PM  

I want to be like you! I love your site and have no bento boxes!

Courtney January 30, 2009 at 9:27 AM  

Orange and yellow are my fave colors!

Fantastic blog. Thanks for the great ideas! :)

Mia January 31, 2009 at 5:48 AM  

OH I wanna win it really bad! I've always been interested in bento, but i thought they were only for kids. then I thought you had to make rice patties to put in them.. but I love your ideas! Fresh, healthy food just arranged to look pretty. A treat just for yourself. LOVE it!

Beth January 31, 2009 at 5:50 AM  

That bento box is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen! Okay, maybe not ever . . . but it's pretty darn adorable.

veganf January 31, 2009 at 4:38 PM  

Aw, crap, you had to remind me about Big Love! I hope our dvr holds onto it long enough 'cause our tv just died.

Wow, a bento that's big enough for my husband's lunch AND it's not Hello Kitty! I'd love to nab it.

LitVamp January 31, 2009 at 11:35 PM  

YAY! Bento
YAY! Yellow
YAY! Big Love

and thank you for telling me about bone picks. *swoon*
