Snack day tomorrow at work....what should I take?

A couple people are going together and buying Italian beef and buns, desserts are covered as well as drinks. I need to bring a side dish of some kind. any ideas?? quick and easy - I can put something in the crock pot and cook it tomorrow but I'll only have about 3 1/2 hours for it to cook. We have a refrigerator at work too if it is something that needs to be kept cold. We do not have an oven though so crock pot is my only heating option. thanks!

  • What about just picking up a fruit and/or veggie tray from the grocery store? That would be quick and easy.

  • Take tossed salad or a cold pasta salad.

  • Baked beans are quick and easy, and you could make them tonight and put them in a crockpot tomorrow.

  • My extended family loved my cold pasta and it couldn't have been simpler. Boil pasta noodles as directed (I prefer the rotini corkscrew shape) and cover with a healthy dose of Wishbone Italian dressing after the noodles have chilled. That's it. You can add sliced olives and/or grated parmesan cheese, or cubed mozzarella chunks if you like.

  • I would say baked beans or macaroni and cheese. Maybe some potato salad?
