Giveaway winners! And another giveaway!

Thanks so much for your patience — I just realized that Robyn O’Brien’s guest blog post went up a month ago. Where did the time go? Without further delay, here are the three winners of copies of her book…

1) Robyn O’Brien’s book The Unhealthy Truth:

There were 47 comments on the blog post and I let the computer work its magic. The winners are:
Comment # 4 – Katherine
Comment # 33 – Paula
Comment # 40 – Kate at Sacred Bee

2) Review post – ChopChop Magazine:

There were 83 comments on the blog post and again the computer helped….

Comment # 14 – Le Reveuse
Please email me if you won!! ๐Ÿ™‚
I continue to be humbled by you, my readers. I love reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by. You touch me. You teach me. You make me smile.
(I still can’t believe you like seeing/reading about my lunches. To me they are boring. I have to say it really does make me feel exposed as food is personal. You see my life through our lunches.)
So I’m going to do a giveaway of something I recently purchased because I’m enjoying this whole blogging thing way too much and I’m grateful you are hanging around to read it. How about a Thermos Foogo Leak-Proof Stainless Steel Food Jar??
I bought it and it is gorgeous, but before I took it out of its packaging, I realized that I didn’t really need it. I think you will enjoy it. To enter, simply comment on this post. No need to say anything fancy!

    I would love to give this to my grandson so he can take some of Gramma's soup to school. He would not only warm up his body but also his soul

    I would love to be able to pack soup for lunch! A good thermos costs a bit of money that gets put on the backburner time and time again.

    Congratulations to the winners of the book and magazine.

    Thanks for the interesting blog posts every day. I love reading them.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a thermos.

    Thanks for the giveaway! This looks perfect to take my soup and pasta with me, or to send with the kids for a good, filling lunch!

  6. Lindsay February 28, 2011 at 2:41 pm #

    I would love to win the thermos. I'm a big fan of soup for lunch and oatmeal for breakfast! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. COB February 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm #

    I could totally use that for bringing soup to work! Woo Hoo!!

  8. Cynthia February 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm #

    Here's to packing lunch!!

  9. MeredithDuck February 28, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    I get a little high out of packing my lunch…is that weird? Yes, yes it is. But I would love to add soup to one of my options by winning that thermos! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not sure if you have drown already, but I'd love to get my name in. Thanks for all you do Mrs. Q., and I do absolutely love your lunch posts – so inspiring!

    Hi! I really enjoy reading all your posts and am a fan of the lunch posts. I've gotten several ideas for my own lunches from them, and tried the Kind bars that you pack. I'm so happy to find a gluten free bar that doesn't taste like dates!

    As a mom of four, and a kindergarten teacher of 15, I understand the lunch issue from both sides. One of my children is selective about what he eats in his home packed lunches; he does not want to get picked on by his classmates. How does this happen? I love reading your blog and getting ideas for lunches for myself and my children. Thanks!

    My oldest would love to use a thermos like that for lunch. She complains that the one I bought leaks ๐Ÿ™ I just can't find anything nice around here.

  14. denki February 28, 2011 at 5:50 pm #

    I'd love a little thermos like that for work and for days out :). Very cute.

    Love your blog!

  15. Brandon February 28, 2011 at 6:00 pm #

    Even though I don't have any kids, I enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for all your hard work Mrs. Q

  16. Natalie February 28, 2011 at 7:38 pm #

    Thank you for continuing to post Mrs. Q! Love to sneak on and read as an after (packed) lunch treat at work. Shhhh… ; )
    And the thermos would be great for my oldest to take her beloved homemade "square soup" for lunch at school. (That's chicken soup with square noodles!)

  17. Ronda February 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm #

    Love it (and all things packable)…pick me!
    Love your blog and will continue to read it.

    Just leaving a comment for the Give-a-way. Still like reading your blog and seeing food pictures, I was worried that would go away when you stopped eating school lunch. It is really nice to see how you put together meals for your son and yourself.

    I want the food container! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I recently found your blog and have been reading religiously since. Would love to win the Foogo as I've been eyeing one for some time.

    Love your blog. Would also love the thermos…come on, random generator!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. missfrizzly March 1, 2011 at 1:13 pm #

    a bunch of kids at my school use that thermos, it looks great!! i'd love the thermos, and i'm sure my little baby would love it too, once she is old enough to eat foods in it ๐Ÿ™‚
    thanks for this giveaway!

    and yes, i find your lunch posts really interesting. they inspire me to make good lunches for myself!

  31. Courtney March 2, 2011 at 2:50 am #

    We are grateful that you are willing to post about your lunches, and other matters of great interest to teachers, parents, and students!

  32. Ruth March 2, 2011 at 1:24 pm #

    This blog has been really fascinating to me, because I never experienced school cafeteria food! My school district didn't even have cafeterias in pre-highschool schools. Kids either brought lunch or went home, and we had a whole hour for lunch. I didn't realize what a luxury that was until I started reading your blog.

    I've been following your blog for quite a while now and enjoy your post and push for healthy meals for kids. My son (17) has preferred to pack a homemade lunch since grade school. He also starts his day with a hearty breakfast, not just cold cereal and milk! I pack my lunch almost every day. Usually leftovers from a prior dinner. It's amazing how much money I save!

  35. KaitGriffin March 2, 2011 at 6:00 pm #

    Cool Thermos!

  36. NJS March 2, 2011 at 9:17 pm #

    Mmmm, chili!

  37. Jaime K-T March 4, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    It is quite a cool thermos – with that being said I do want to thank you for really opening up my eyes on what my children can be eating. Since reading this blog we have had many conversations about their lunches and "Choice of fruit!" has now become a catch phrase in my household ๐Ÿ™‚

    While sandwiches are good, my daughter gets tired of them. She loves soup though. With her allergies, school lunch is out of the question for her.
