Quick Little 411

We usually do a Bento-esque lunch a few times a week. Now that fall is coming and the temperature is dropping, I have brought out the thermos. It is great for cold lunches like gazpacho (yumm!) ; or for hot soups. We even use it to keep veggie nuggets (tastes like chicken) warm.

but there is a thermos trick!
for cold items, prior to loading with lunch fill up thermos with ice water. then drain and dry. This keeps the metal very cold all day.
For hot items, fill up thermos with really hot water. then drain and dry. Fill up with lunch. Keeps the metal hot.
Try it. It really works well.

My sister says she did not know this tip, so I thought I would pass it along to you.
