The Tiffin Tin

What\’s in your lunchbox?

Oh, I Do So Love a Good Thermos

with 4 comments

Actually, it’s one of the Tiffin Twins who really likes a good thermos. He’s the hot food child. And although he insists on taking his lunch in a brown paper bag (in this case, a nice one with a handle from Peet’s Coffee, our favorite local coffee roaster), he puts a very fine thermos inside. Today, all the pictures of his lunch made it look so terribly unappealing, that I’m contenting myself with the outsides of things.
Like his lunch bag.

And his new thermos. It’s a 16 ounce thermos and it worked beautifully today. Inside went some nice rice and pinto beans made over the weekend. And when he opened it at lunch? The food was still wonderfully hot.

    Nice thermos. I’ll have to go check it out. The link you posted was for a 16 oz. version.

  2. Oops. It is the 16 ounce version. It’s lovely to have your eagle eye.

    Do you have any idea for a good picture for the header? I used to have a beautiful picture of an old-fashioned tiffin tin (from google images) but I couldn’t figure out how to make a header with it and a white background alone. Yikes!

    Love, Lily

  3. The one you have now looks great. What I’d do is take a picture of all three boy’s lunches and make that into a banner.
