Thanksgiving Indian Bento

The Wampanoag Indians were the people who taught the pilgrims had to farm the land.  The first Thanksgiving was in 1621 when the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians celebrated together after the first harvest.  This celebration lasted three days.  ~ Wikipedia


In this bento:  Pizza pocket sandwich - filled with pizza sauce, oregano, pepperoni, ham, and cheese.  The pocket sandwich is decorated with a little Indian made from mozzarella cheese, nori, and carrot.  Turkey shaped green bell pepper (the pepper was peeled), yellow sunburst tomatoes, baby carrots, black grapes, raspberries, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds to represent Thanksgiving corn.



In case you did not notice, I have a new lunchbox.  This new one is a Yumbox and they just released this new limited edition color 5th Avenue blue.  I have had my eye on the Yumbox for a little while now and when I saw they were coming out with this color I decided it was time to buy one.

This concludes the Thanksgiving bentos this year.  I will be taking next week off from blogging to spend some quality time with my family.  Happy Thanksgiving & see you in December :)
