Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
We are going to talk about fun activities to do with the family this fall from where to find the best pumpkins to what to pack for that fall ball doubleheader to comfort food and everything in between. Join in the conversation and you will be eligible for prizes – super cool, stainless steel, dishwasher safe Sipp food jars to be exact. Trust me, these are not your Mother’s Thermos containers that you had as a kid – no, they are way better!
As the co-hostess for the Twitter party, Thermos sent me a few of their products to try out. I have to say I am truly in love with the new stainless steel designs. First, they don’t leak. Second, they are dishwasher safe. And third, they are so much better for the environment.
I chaperoned my daughter’s classroom on a field trip to a botanical research facility last week and decided to take my new Thermos cooler with me. As you can see from the photo it looks more like a purse than a standard cooler. I was able to pack a healthy lunch and drinks for my daughter and myself in the cooler and everything was still cold at lunch time. I will be testing out the cooler and the Sipp food jars this weekend as we head to a swim meet. If you have never been to a year round swim meet, they can take forever! Since my daughter will be swimming four events over the course of a few hours I need to have good fuel ready for her in between races. The Sipp will come in handy as I can put Ramen noodle soup in it at 6:30 am and it will still be warm by 10 or 11 when she is ready for it.
Don’t forget – Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 1-2 pm Eastern (12-1 pm Central time) – meet me on Twitter – Just follow @ThermosBrand and use the hashtag #TBFTP to win!
