Today is the first day of fall (9/22). Welcome to Autumn! It has already been getting cool here. This Fall/Winter I am going to focus more on thermos lunches. Although my daughter does not mind eating things cold, she definitely enjoys switching things up and is thrilled to eat a warm meal a few times a week! A question frequently asked regarding thermos lunches is "how do you pack the warm food with food that needs an ice pack?" I put another slide show together (since the last one was a hit!) to show the packing process in our lunch bag.
The key to packing these foods together is gradual separation. Pack the cold stuff on the bottom next to the ice pack. I then try to place buffer items in the lunch bag (napkin and utensils), then the thermos.
In the thermos: Leftover chicken pastry soup. (I cut one of the noodles with a Mickey cookie cutter to tie it in with the theme).
In the LunchBots Quad: Watermelon pieces, baby carrots, cucumber slices, and red grapes.
