Cutlery to Go

In just a few hours, Texas schools will open for the 2011-2012 school year. That means, less kinect xbox time for darling daughter…and more for me! Kidding! One of our last minute shopping trips today was at The Container Store. I was looking for food containers. Yes, like I need more! Hee hee. I wanted a square or rectangular-shaped container that will retain heat, much like the round ones that we already have, which keeps food warm for upto 5 hours. I found stainless steel ones but they were a little too hard for my daughter’s delicate hands to open, so we passed on them.  The container search turned out to be futile.

What I ended up buying, however, were reusable cutlery…

This was a eureka moment for me. My daughter already has reusable forks and chopsticks. But she doesn’t have a reusable spoon and knife. This Cutlery to Go set has everything!

There are only 2 handles (the bottom part of the cutlery) so my daughter has to make up her mind whether she wants to use a spoon and fork…

…a fork and knife…

…or chopsticks.

Did I mention these are BPA-free? The price for this set is $4.99 plus tax, a little on the steep side. But I just couldn’t resist passing up on them! And besides, my daughter wanted them, too. *wink* It’s a pretty good set to add to my lunch-to-go inventory. It’s also a small step in being earth/environment friendly. My daughter has not been using plastic cutlery with her home-prepared lunches for a very long time now.

With that, I say I’m ready to get back to making school lunches for my favorite girl. I’m just not quite ready to give up sleeping in. Hee hee.

Have a great week ahead, y’all! And have a wonderful school year ahead! Cheers and mabuhay!
