Thanksgiving Leftovers Bento

I have been looking forward to making this bento all week. I love leftovers from Thanksgiving Dinner, So I couldn't wait to have some so I could make a Thanksgiving Bento. I decided to dress it up a bit with some Turkey Cutouts, just to up the Thanksgiving Factor.
First of all, You should read my Thanksgiving Blog Post and see all the things I'm Thankful for this year.
Here it is! I'm so excited!!!
  • Turkey (Slice of Breast Meat, Small piece of Dark Meat)
  • Cornbread Stuffing (Gluten Free)
  • Broccoli (Not actually Thanksgiving Leftovers, but I wanted a green vegetable so I added it in)
  • 1/2 Sweet Potato (With Skin, and a Turkey Cut out with Gravy inside)
  • Gravy (Gluten Free, Homemade)
  • Butternut Squash
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Cranberry Sauce (Yep, the can shaped Jelly that graces the table each year. I wanted some Red in the picture, but I only had a tiny bite of cranberry sauce, and left the rest.)
I wanted to make the picture a little more thanksgiving-y so I added a cheese cutout of a Turkey to the Gravy... but I took it out after taking the picture and tossed it. Eww, I do not think Cheese and Gravy should ever be mixed. (When I used to eat KFC I would ask for the Famous Bowls without Cheese, because the cheese had no business being on top of gravy, corn, mashed potatoes, and popcorn chicken.)
But it's cute on top of gravy when it's Turkey shaped...


  1. You. Are So. CUTE. OMG. X-D Love it! ...And I agree cheese and gravy sounds a little odd. :-P

  2. Looks yum! I just ate leftovers, but just didn't have it in me to arrange it in a bento!

  3. Thank you Julie. Yes it does...
