My daughter left her school back pack at her friend’s house the other day and her hot lunch thermos was inside it. Fast forward to me, monday morning, making her a hot lunch and discovering the lack of a thermos. The home-made mac-n-cheese-n-kale sauce was already bubbling on the stove.
I had to think fast, we needed to be in the car in 10 minutes. Here’s my picture tutorial of our trash hack instant alternative to a thermos solution:
1) Find an insulated reusable coffee mug (the kind you tote around and show off to friends).
2) Fill it with hot water and put a sock cozy around it for added insulation.
3) Pour out the hot water and put in the hot lunch.
Put the lid on and you’re done! And we weren’t late for school, either.
So the next time you’re picking out a thermos for your loved one, and you find your thermos is missing, never fear, a travel coffee mug is probably near.
