So, I haven't been in school in quite sometime, and I start up a six week deal this morning in about an hour. Today I'm gonna go easy and take PB&J and some granola. I'm interested in finding some dishes that people think are better at room temperature rather than hot or cold. I almost always prefer my food hot, so working out a lunch I will enjoy will be kinda difficult.



I generally don't eat premade sandwiches wince they get all soggy and gross, so I hope the PBJ makes it today.



Anyone got recipes that you couldn't do without in your lunch box?

I like homemade hommus in a tupperware kind of box thing. I'll bring a roll and some celery sticks and just dunk them into the hommous. Very easy.



Also consider putting some veg, beans, dry veg stock and broken pasta into a wide mouth thermos and topping up with boiling water in the morning before leaving for school. By lunchtime the pasta is cooked and you have hot veg noodle soup ready to eat. Lots of variations on this.

That's weird, I've never been anywhere that didn't have a microwave available.



Sogginess drives me nuts too. I actually take pb&j a lot. I put peanut butter on both slices of bread to keep the jelly from making things soggy. You can make up a bunch at one time and keep them in baggies in the freezer. They thaw out fine. If you are using deli slices or something, then putting margarine on both slices or making a wrap helps too. If there's a fridge available salads are always good

What's the contraption you speak of, I don't know this thing. HA - I refuse to use microwaves!



peanut butter on both sides sounds like my best bet. I think I may try and test out a soup tomorrow. Today's the first day and I got a few more weeks, so hopefully I can get my groove this week and then the rest will be a breeze.

Chickpea salad! It's good on bread, crackers or by itself.

The sandwich worked great yesterday, but I realized they actually give us an hour instead of the thirty minutes I thought, so that gives me PLENTY of time to go let Leto go to the bathroom and put something together really quickly. I'm still gonna have to try the soup idea though.
