Lunches for hubby

My husband is a carpenter and works out side most of the time. I always pack him sandwiches, yogurt, or fruit and chips. I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions of something other than sandwiches I could make for his lunch that would be safe in a cooler?

  • My husband is a carpenter and he takes sandwiches and I make them in a variety of ways and use different types of bread.
    Also different pasta salads, tuna or salmon spread on crackers, veggies, hardboiled eggs already peeled so he doesn't have to. No telling what his hands are like, lol!
    Fruit cups and plenty of little debbie snack cakes.
    Also fried chicken from kfc or the deli and potato salad
    I also keep a giant ziplock filled with plasticware

  • Depending on his attitude toward eating normally hot foods cold, he could take leftover meatloaf, fried chicken or pizza. Same with ribs, pork chops, etc. My parents often will take leftover ribs to work and eat them cold. My kids have eaten burritos and fajitas cold, they claim they are good (those are two things I can't bring myself to eat cold, so I can only tell you what they say. lol). Also, if he eats it, something my mom turned me on to is Chicken in a bicuit crackers with aerosol cheese, both usually found in the cracker aisle. Those don't even need a cooler. Leftover popcorn, wouldn't have butter, but not bad.
