 I like to repurpose meals, spaghetti and meatballs becomes meatball subs for lunch or another dinner, chili becomes chili dogs, ideas like that. I really like to make a batch of chicken with just mild seasoning and then I can use it in salads, wraps, sandwiches and for pot pies or casseroles.

Leftovers.  Sandwiches.  English muffin pizzas.

Lunch is always the meal I struggle with. We usually do leftovers

My dd likes just having a sandwich and some fruit, she's not much of a lunch gal.

 School lunches that are served, but snack after school, but yes we do leftovers for lunch as well, when school was in they really came home and ate leftovers if any. Great ideas...thanks

Our school sends the lunch menu home on the school calendar. I keep the calendars so I can make a meal plan from it ... so easy!

 I've been making sandwiches and fries, fishsticks, chicken nuggets, spaghetti and a lot of sloppy joes.
