A hot lunch buy
Sometimes it pays to spend more on certain things. It took me awhile to learn this lesson. TakeÂ thermoses (thermii?) for example. Whenever Iâ€™ve cheaped out on the purchase of a thermos for hot drinks it has always leaked. It is Law.
Iâ€™ve been promising my daughters that Iâ€™d buy insulated food containers for ages. I havenâ€™t been able to find the right one. Until now.
We were browsing the aisles at T & T Supermarket (an Asian grocery chain) over March Break and I stumbled upon this beauty:
The pricetag was a hefty $32.00, and it was the last one on the shelf. (This is probably a good thing because I could only afford to buy one at that price.) I picked it up and turned it over in my hands to take a closer look, praying it would become a good buy and not end up in the garbage like some of the other insulated containers we have purchased in the past.
It is a thing of beauty; steel walls with an easy-grip lid. And thereâ€™s even a little bowl which nestles comfortably inside, helpfully (and hopefully) separating two potential food groupsÂ while keeping them warm at the same time. It also comes with a cute little carry bag.
This is going to do wonders for our lunch menu. I can finally pack hot meals… like spaghetti and meatballs! And maybe even oatmeal! Or a stir fry with rice! Suddenly my future seems a little brighter.
But hereâ€™s the problem, my $32.00 didnâ€™t buy English instructions. If you are able to read the scan below, can you please let me know if Iâ€™m missing anything important?
