I have an antique cabinet I use for overflow kitchen items like extra paper towels, serving dishes, slow cookers, large bowls, a dehydrator, etc. As I was pulling out my large Crockpot to cook a soup overnight for lunch the next day, I spotted it. Where had it been? Apparently in this cabinet, but I had forgotten all about it.
This would be the perfect item to carry my soup in too. It was my thermos!
We often forget about items and even foods that can make eating on the go easier. Plus I’d just received this question from a friend on our Facebook page, and thought it would be a great tool to have for his work lunches. “Having a mental block here. Help me with a few simple good ideas to pack lunch for work.” When you don’t have a kitchenette to reheat food for lunch at work or on-the-go, consider investing in a thermos. They come in a variety of sizes if you’re craving hot foods for lunch. This is a picture of the soup I made. Did it keep it warm? I’d say it did because it burnt my tongue. Don’t think of a thermos as just for soups. Anything that “oozes” should work well too. It my not have the best presentation after you pour it out, but it all goes in the same place and will still taste great. I can’t wait to try the Quinoa & Black Bean recipe in it next.
