I do leftovers, make sandwiches, soups, whatever for lunch. I have low blood sugar, the opposite of diabetes so I rely on protein. Lunch is small, and on my breaks I also eat a sandwich or healthy protein bar with milk. I have to have tiny meals every two or three hours to keep from getting shaky and dizzy.

I'm too busy keeping myself from passing out to worry about anything but protein.

Farmer Jon, if your wife sliced the hot dogs and put the pieces into baked beans you might get better mileage with your tractor.
CG, when I was a kid my mom also packed stew and soups in a mini thermos too. Thinking about that, I am so grateful she made sure I had hot lunch for school.

STANLEY ® | Stanley Product Filter

Thank you. Ey sure make good product, I only wish they had something bigger. My mom has this thermos, it is almost a gallon size. Now that's a food thermos, large enough for whole family.

You can put soup in any thermos. I have 2 that I use for coffee. one is a Craftsman it holds a whole 12 cup pot. The Stanley only holds 8. Next time you go to sears go to the tool section and check them out.

It was leave the office and have a nice quite lunch, or stay at the office and work through your lunch.
It did not take long to make the decision to leave. Everyday.

I was a salesman and I wanted all my calls no matter if it was lunch time or not. I had to make a decision to allow the customer to wait until I got back. I needed that down time.

Hm, 12 cups sound good. I was thinking more in line of real food not just soup, but it is already better.
Thank you.
