  • When I'm on a budget I always make a large pot of soup or chili on the weekends. Then I freeze it in single serve containers. I pull one out for lunch. By lunch time it is defrosted and I just warm it in a microwave. I pack any leftovers from dinners for lunches. I always make extra so that I have them for lunch.

  • buy him a thermos and put in left over chili or whatever was for dinner the night before..it is warm and home cooked. My DH works outside yr round in Ohio and it is so cold in the winter so he really loves those warm lunches or soup. In the summer it is fres fruit and lots of liquid or yogurt, and he loves turkey with lettuce and cranberry sauce rolled up in a burrito.
