Packing Hot Lunches In A Thermos

"Hot Lunch to Go" These will stay "warm and delicious for hours." (quotes from Parents magazine, Sept.'07)

Many people already enjoy this food tip, I hope you will too! Some foods you can heat up and insulate in a Thermos (besides soup). I added more ideas to the magazine I found this in:

  1. Grilled cheese on whole wheat, cut to fit

  2. (Chinese or any) leftovers

  3. Chicken nuggets

  4. Spaghetti

  5. Burrito/soft tacos

  6. Swedish meatballs

  7. Rice and beans

  8. Pizza bread, cut to fit

  9. Bacon and eggs (with ketchup smiley face, if you like!)

  10. Chili with tortilla-chip scoops (or Fritos)

  11. Mini ravioli with butter and Parmesan cheese

  12. Pasta rings with peas and corn

  13. Etc! Be creative!

Be sure to pack a utensil!

Note: Little did I know, now available are neat "vacuum insulated food jars" in pretty stainless steel designs and some with a folding spoon! Wow! Designs at:
