Silly Turkey Sandwiches and Lunchbox Love 9

Welcome to our weekly Friday feature, Allergy Friendly Lunchbox Love!  This link party is specifically for your dishes that will travel well in a lunchbox, and if they're free of some (or all) of the top eight food allergens, that's even better :)

Meet my little friend Tommy Turkey!  I've been seeing cute little lunchbox turkeys all over the place, mostly made with cheese, but Tommy here is allergy-free.  He's made with a gluten-free, egg-free English muffin, carrots, red peppers, and pineapple feathers, uncured salami legs, pea eyes, and a little carrot beak.  You might like to spread Tommy with some hummus or nut butter, or even coconut butter to keep his facial features in place... my little tester declared he wanted his turkey naked.

Today's features from last week's link party include a delicious, dairy-free chocolate milkshake from Gluten Free Pantry (who wouldn't want to find one of these in their lunchbox?), and an adorable bento lunchbox from the Keeley McGuire Blog featuring charming little "sandwich balls" arranged in the shape of a rabbit.  How sweet!  Be sure to click the links to their sites to see all the details.

And now for this week's link-up!  What did you pack for lunch this week?
