The Best Lunches In The Worst Containers
In Izzy's words, "You make the best lunches." I'd like to think that is true but up until now I have been sending them off to school in the worst possible containers. With all of the hoopla surrounding bad plastics I could kick myself for taking so long to find suitable replacements.
Since Izzy started school, I have been using Tupperware-like plastic containers in a variety of sizes, to send soup, salads and leftovers. The teachers reheat them in the microwave. I don't even want to think about what poor Izzy has ingested thus far but I am glad to have found what looks like perfect alternative.
These are glass containers with plastic covers and they have a spiffy vintage look about them. You can find them at Fish's Eddy which is chock full of adorable kitchenware. I also picked up some adorable cat dishes while I was there. Not sure if the cats have noticed but they definitely look better than what we had before.
