Back To School Week Giveaway from...JustBento!

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for participating in all the giveaway drawings during Back To School week - it’s been fun! (Even with the multiple server crashes!) Special thanks go out of course to the great companies who donated prizes. I also hope the three features have been useful too!

And now the final giveaway prize for this event - something that’s rather close to my heart…

It’s a signed copy of The Just Bento Cookbook, authored by yours truly. My precious stash of author’s copies is just about all spoken for already to be sent to family and friends (I did have to convince my father that he has to wait for the 15 copies he requested), but I have reserved one just for…you!

If you’re new to the site, read more about the book here and take a peek inside.

Update: The giveway is now closed…wow, we got more than 1,000 entries! Thank you everyone who participated - the winner will be announced later this week.

This giveaway is open to everyone, worldwide. If someone in Antarctica wins, I’ll mail it there!

To enter, just leave a comment to this post. Since I’m always curious as to where people who read this site are, just say what town, state (if applicable) and country you’re commenting from. (No need to be too specific - I’m not going to come and stalk you ^_^)

Be sure to include a valid email address where you can be contacted in the appropriate text box! Your comment must be posted by 23:59:59 EDT (U.S. East Coast Time) (or just before midnight) of Wednesday, August 25th 2010. One lucky entry will be drawn at random to receive a signed copy of the book. Good luck!

So, this is the last giveaway of Back To School Week 2010. I hope you enjoyed it!

I live in a small colonial town - Chestertown, Maryland, US. I've already pre-ordered a cookbook copy from Amazon.com, but I can gift that to a friend since the winning copy would arrive earlier!

My 10 year old daughter loves when I make bentos, and this school year she will be helping me choose and prepare them.

Thanks for the website & upcoming book!

Love your blog!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From...JustBento!

I live in Las Vegas.

The weather here presents a unique problem for bentos, I think. During the summer, the average temperature is upwards of 110, so foods that should be ok at room temp for six hours really have a life span of about three (one if left in a car without AC). Ice packs also have about half the advertised life span. Anything with mayonnaise is pretty much out of the question, even with an ice pack. Maybe it is ok if you use an ice pack and put the box in the fridge as soon as you get to work/school or wherever.

I'm up in Woodinville, WA, north and east of Seattle. I grew up in what's locally called the 'U District' after the University of Washington, and there were two Japanese import stores there; I remember buying Tomoe Ame or Botan rice candy when I was about 7 or so and I think I still have the pink metal glitter butterfly that you could pinch the wings of and perch it here or there...
