Somewhere around April when we make the switch from hot coffee to iced, our thermos starts getting shoved further and further back in the cupboard. We always seem to forget that those handy thermoses work for cold things, too! Do you use your thermos in the summer?

Thermoses are pretty amazing things, keeping our food at a steady temperature for hours. It always seems like magic to us that we can fill our thermos with iced coffee in the morning and still find ice cubes floating inside when we pour it out at lunch time.

We're thinking beyond iced coffee and lemonade, too. Thermoses are great for transporting dishes like fruit salad or a batch of gazpacho to a picnic and keeping them cool until we're ready to eat. Plus, thermoses are generally leak-proof, so we don't have to worry about spills in our bag.

What goes in your thermos these days?
