Flask stream templates challenge

I can't seem to get past this challenge. In the first part it's looking for the value of the order as well as a timestamp. I can't see that order has that property.

lunch.py
import datetime

from flask import Flask, g, render_template, flash, redirect, url_for
from flask.ext.bcrypt import check_password_hash
from flask.ext.login import LoginManager, login_user, current_user, login_required, logout_user

import forms
import models

app = Flask(__name__)
app.secret_key = 'this is our super secret key. do not share it with anyone!'
login_manager = LoginManager()
login_manager.init_app(app)
login_manager.login_view = 'login'


@login_manager.user_loader
def load_user(userid):
    try:
        return models.User.select().where(
            models.User.id == int(userid)
        ).get()
    except models.DoesNotExist:
        return None


@app.before_request
def before_request():
    g.db = models.DATABASE
    g.db.connect()
    g.user = current_user


@app.after_request
def after_request(response):
    g.db.close()
    return response


@app.route('/register', methods=('GET', 'POST'))
def register():
    form = forms.SignUpInForm()
    if form.validate_on_submit():
        models.User.new(
            email=form.email.data,
            password=form.password.data
        )
        flash("Thanks for registering!") 
    return render_template('register.html', form=form)


@app.route('/login', methods=('GET', 'POST'))
def login():
    form = forms.SignUpInForm()
    if form.validate_on_submit():
        try:
            user = models.User.get(
                models.User.email == form.email.data
            )
            if check_password_hash(user.password, form.password.data):
                login_user(user)
                flash("You're now logged in!")
            else:
                flash("No user with that email/password combo")
        except models.DoesNotExist:
              flash("No user with that email/password combo")
    return render_template('register.html', form=form)

@app.route('/secret')
@login_required
def secret():
    return "I should only be visible to logged-in users"

@app.route('/logout')
def logout():
    logout_user()
    return redirect(url_for('login'))


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('index.html')


@app.route('/order', methods=('GET', 'POST'))
def order_lunch():
    form = forms.LunchOrderForm()
    if form.validate_on_submit():
        models.LunchOrder.create(
            user=g.user._get_current_object(),
            date=form.date.data,
            order=form.order.data.strip()
        )
    return render_template('lunch.html', form=form)


@app.route('/today')
@login_required
def today():
    order = models.LunchOrder.select().where(
        models.LunchOrder.date == datetime.date.today() &
        models.LunchOrder.user == g.user._get_current_object()
    ).get()
    return render_template('today.html', order=order)


@app.route('/cancel_order/<int:order_id>')
@login_required
def cancel_order(order_id):
    try:
        order = models.LunchOrder.select().where(
            id=order_id,
            user=g.user._get_current_object()
        ).get()
    except models.DoesNotExist:
        pass
    else:
        order.delete_instance()
    return redirect(url_for('index'))
templates/today.html
{% extends "layout.html" %}

{% block content %}
<h1>Your lunch for today</h1>

<h2>{{ order.timestamp.strftime('%Y-%m-%d') }}</h2>
<p><!-- print today's lunch order --></p>
<!-- button to the route for cancel_order with order_id=order.id -->
{% endblock %}

You're pulling in a LunchOrder() object, which gets the name 'order'. Look in the code where a LunchOrder gets created (def order_lunch():). There you can see the 3 attributes that are part of a LunchOrder.

In the context of the today() view, you are making a LunchOrder, calling it order and then accessing it's attributes. You can user order.some_attribute the same way you would use LunchOrder().some_attribute.

Thanks I was looking at the today view and could just see the two attributes there but didn't think to look beyond that to the create LunchOrder to get the full attributes. Got it now.
