A good thermos bottle is a great investment!! You can make all kinds of warm lunches in it. A lot of things besides soup can be kept warm in a thermos.Leftovers keep warm in a thermos.
Meatloaf, chili, soup (of course), scalloped potatoes, stew, just about anything. Toss in some fruit, veggies and some type of bread and they will have a complete meal. My personal note is not to buy the cute little thermos bottles with the cartoon characters. They are not made of the same quality as the “working mans” thermos. They do not keep the food as warm for as long as an adults thermos. Angelena
