    the spoon attached to the cover, is very clever!

    Newspaper works well for insulating cold items, too. If you are transporting those in a cooler chest, cover them with several layers of newspaper. I transported seafood from Louisiana to Colorado like this--a 2-day trip. The seafood was still frozen solid when we arrived--and in June, not winter.
    Didn't our ancestors know this? Think of all the old houses lined with newspaper!

    A number of years ago, I was going outside on the front porch, sitting on the steps, while I smoked a cigarette. It got colder and colder and one day, I took some newspapers out to sit on. I was so much warmer that I vowed I would take newspapers downtown for the "homeless" ... newspapers have been used all over the place as insulation ... good of you to remind us.

    Were you ever a Girl Scout or a Brownie???? Going way back~~~we made "Sit-a-pons"! We used oil cloth (like our Mom's table cloths) 2 pieces with newspaper in between, punched holes along the sides and whipped them together with yarn or heavey twine leaving a loop to attach to our belts. When ever we sat in the grass~~~which was most of the time~~ we had an instant seat to "sit-a-pon"!!! Good memories!

    Kacy, what size casserole dish fits into this size? I have made them out of placemats too and then I have all kinds of trouble finding the right sized pan/dish.
    Thank you in advance
