    WANTED: Lunchbox Packing Advice

    The “25 Back-to-School Lunchbox Ideas” recently posted included several muffin-like recipes (Pizza Tarts, Ham and Cheese Muffins, and Muffin Weenies). I’m trying to figure out a way to pack them at 7am and still have them warm when lunch rolls around at noon. I considered heating one to near napalm and then closing it up in a wide-mouth thermos. Unfortunately I think it would release steam which would condense in the thermos and turn the contents into a big mush ball. In a house like mine where consistency is king, that is a deal breaker. Heating them at lunch time isn’t an option either. If you have any ideas PLEASE send them my way. Thanks!

    Maybe put in a piece of paper towel to absorb excess moisture? I know you can keep tamales warm until lunch in a wide-mouth thermos, but you want those to be moist.

    Rubbermade makes a plastic tote for carrying cupcakes. I would think such a product would work for muffins as well. I think Tupperware might even have such a thing, but haven't stopped at an of their mall kiosks in years, so I'm not familiar with their current catalog.

    Haveyou tried a thoroughly insulated lunch bag? I would think they would keep a super hot muffin warm for a while. I see them everywhere too, from Target to Wal-Mart to K-Mart.

    There are also insulated casserole totes offered in a variety of sizes (including quite small sizes) that might work as well. You should find those at Wal-Mart type stores too, or at major department stores that have kitchen equipment, like Bed Bath & Beyond.

    If you wrap the muffin with a paper towel, I would think it would protect it and and keep it moist without getting soggy from steam.
