a livestock picture, and a Thermos update
I've blogged before about the neighborhood rooster who hangs out with my calves. Yesterday I happened to see Rooster almost huddled up with the Secret and Meatloaf, and I couldn't resist taking a picture.
OK, after yesterday's entry, I did extensive research on vacuum bottles. From what I've found, wide-mouth bottles just don't keep things hot or cold as long as regular ones, and the one I'm complaining about is wide-mouth. It needs to be, in order to put chili or vegetable stew inside it.
I found these reviews on Amazon.com, which convinced me to buy Thermos brand. Target online had the best prices; since we were out and about yesterday, I went into the Target store. Alas, no wide-mouth containers did they have. So this morning I went to the Target website and found what I wanted.
The Thermos Work Series 1.25 quart bottle, which is supposed to keep temperatures decently hot or cold for twenty-four hours! This will do for our beverage bottle.
For soup, I bought the Thermos Work Series 16-ounce food bottle. It supposedly keeps food hot for seven hours, cold for nine. See the difference? I've been expecting a food bottle to work as efficiently as a beverage bottle, and obviously that doesn't happen.
By the way, I've never been a big Target shopper, but their prices were far better than everyone else's.
Thanks, everyone, for your input.
