November B.O.M.B. Theme Announcement 7

Posted on November 18, 2010 by Debra

Thanks to all that submitted.   The selected B.O.M.B.  is here!

Recent posts have featured one of my favorite things to eat— squash!  I just love’em, don’t you?  Especially the winter squash types like ambercup, red kuri and of course pumpkin!

So let’s celebrate the Season of the Squash with a tribute…a theme.

With that, I declare November’s B.O.M.B. theme….Squash!

It doesn’t have to fancy or even autumn-like.  If  it’s zucchini you prefer, then go for it!  

Do you salivate at the site of simmered kabocha ?  Show us!

Be as creative as you’d like.

Just add your link and describe your bento in the comments.  I’ll post the photo for you.

If  you don’t have a photo hosting site, you can email them to me.  Just remember to leave a comment so I know where to place it.

Thanks!

1. The B.O.M.B. Challenge starts now.

2. The last day to submit will be November 30,  2010 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time

The B.O.M.B. for August 18

Posted on August 17, 2010 by Debra

This month’s theme?  What else can be but “Back-to-School”!  But don’t worry if you don’t have school-aged children…because your entry just needs to meet the theme  if not the purpose.  And of course… a bonafide,  school-bound, “P,B and J” bento is perfectly acceptable !
