What do you pack your SO for lunch, and what do they do?

My SO is a supervisor in the Oil Field, so he's usually outside, working his butt off. They have access to a microwave, so that helps a little. I am running out of Lunch ideas for him. What do you send with your SO and what kind of work do they do? (He will not eat things like tunafish, pbj) He needs fuel to get thru the 12-16 hour shift.

  • My DH packs his own lunch. This week he's just been bringing bagels. Sometimes he'll make a sandwich or pack leftovers. He sits at a desk all day, like me.

  • Whatever we had for supper the night before. He doesn't mind leftovers, so I always make enough for him to have a lunch.

    He's the ninja geek who fixes shit that I don't understand. He works in the "quiet room" :)

  • I make my husband a lunch every day... but it's the same exact lunch every day... he's ok with that although I think his co-workers tease him. I figure if I have to make it, he has to eat whatever I pack. He gets a sandwich, a piece of fruit and either some nuts or a piece of candy if we have some lying around.
