Simple chicken soup & a thermos wrap


Chicken vegetable soup in the thermos, with some grapes, goldfish and I sliced and mixed up a small red and orange tomato from the garden.  Tomatoes are almost done for the season and N'Anna loves 'em.  Stuck a small yellow pear tomato in the middle.  Just realized the bunny pick in the back is turned around.  Threw the cute l'il animal picks in the grapes for something cute.

I made a thermal wrap for her thermos so I can throw both hot and cold in her lunch box.  I keep the grapes and tomatoes in the fridge overnite so they are still cool by lunch.

For the thermal wrap, I bought a used soft sided cooler at a junk store for a couple of dollars and cut a piece just the size to wrap around her thermos.  Then I sewed a cute fabric scap over top to hold it all together, and zig zag stitched some bias tape around the edge.  I then stitched on a piece of velcro to hold around the thermos.  It works great - keeps her soup hot, and the cold stuff is still cool by lunch.
