Do people use thermoses anymore? I remember when I was a kid, you alway got a matching thermos with your themed lunchbox. They don’t come with them anymore, you have to buy them separately. But I always loved my thermos! There was either something cool and refreshing to drink on a hot day, or some sort of warm soup to keep me nice and toasty on a cold day.
In a way, it seems like thermoses have gone “out of style”. I could be wrong, but it just seems like people don’t use them all that much anymore.
Well, I’d like to revive those wonderful gadgets! What better way to take a nice warm meal to school or lunch than in a thermos?!
So today, I put together a roundup of lunch-time recipes you can easily take for lunch in a thermos!
