Hi ladies,
can anyone give me any ideas on what I can make my bf for lunch. lol
@ his work they don't have a microwave, so it's kinda difficult to come up with things other than sandwiches, and salads. But summer time I should be able to make anything else since the sun will give it a little heat =P
tnx in advance, I am open to anything

Pasties are the best. It is a pie like dough and inside is meat, potatoes, carrots, onion..all chopped it. Very common in mining areas. They are good hot or cold.

in the summer you just need to watch out for stuff like food borne illnesses that can go rampant in food left in the "wrong" heating conditions!
i completely agree with the thermos idea! you can even send leftovers in it as long as they can get in and out of the thermos.
or you can get one of those shorter wide ones and put pretty much any food in them. ive done lasagne spaghetti and leftover pork chops and rice etc.
what i do, because my husband leaves at 530 in the morning and i am not getting up that early every morning after being up with babies in the night is... i "make" his lunch the night before then if its something that has to be heated he microwaves it then stuffs it in the thermos. haha, i have to leave everything pretty much like an assembly line for him with open thermos etc so its "easy" for him in the morning, but it seems to work :)
other than that... different kinds of sandwiches! be inventive? use different kinds of breads or buns different meats. even wraps might make a different alternative if you have no thermos or microwave.
i have the same problem! sorry if i wasnt much help..

Turkey or roast beef wraps. You can put anything you want in there and they have different kind of wraps. My husband likes the spinach wraps.

An insulated lunch bag, or cooler . They have them @ Walmart.*&* for hot soups/ coffee *U* can use a big thermous. *&* add a ice pack too. It will keep things 'good' for atlest 5 hrs! Just make sure you read cleaning instructions , 'some can NOT go in a dishwasher.'
I'll cut up fruits and veggies. *&* try to find different snacks and drinks . Veriety packages for lunch meat. Lettuce/ Tomato. Yogurts, You can freeze Go-Gurts and put em' in the lunch in the morning and it will be 1/2 thawed by the time he eats it. Ask him things he likes to get ideas too. He is lucky to have a women who will make his lunch for him.'

My husband is in the army and im constantly making him lunches to take to the field..Instead of regular bread i use hoogie buns and i put ham and turkey with cheese and put it in the oven both sides of the bun..on the top bun i sprinkly cheese on it to add some flavor..then add your tomatoes or whatever he likes. its still a sandwich but its not necessarily a "cold" sandwich..or ill do cold chicken (cooked of course) and ill mix some gravy with it and put it on some bread! ill put snack like chips, cookies, sometime a piece of cake or pie that was made from the night before and a special little note in his lunch everyday to show him i love him...our little girl made daddy a pbnj sandwich one day and i helped her write him a letter to put in his lunch and he thought it was just a regular lunch and when he got to work and opened it up he saw it was from her so i think that day was a little more special, even if it was just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich lol

Elfrieda I am the same way, of course I tell him you have two hands and two feet do it yourself. Espically since you didn't get your lazy rear out of bed to help me get the kiddo off to school. (thats a whole other can of worms!:))

We have a thermos container that will keep hot things hot for 5 hours, and cold things cold for 7 hours. Here are some of our meals (hubby and son both have them)

Any kind of soup with crackers or toast.
Cereal with milk, usually send apple sauce or fruit as a side.
Oatmeal with fruit, send some granola crunches to sprinkle on top.
Tuna or chicken salad and crackers with lettuce and tomato.
Pasta with meat sauce & Parmesan.
Leftovers heated from the night before (just make sure they are really hot if they have meat in them).
Any kind of meat & veggie wrap (cold) with chips for a side.

Make him a spicy tomato pasta that can be eatten cold. Change the types of breads you give him from bagels, pitta breads and cheese topped rolls. Sandwhiches need'ent be boring. My sons used to take packed lunches to school and got fed up with sandwiches all the time so they took things like pasties and scotch eggs which can be eatten cold.

If you get a soup thermos, you should be able to heat up any sort of hotdish or casserole in the morning, put in the soup thermos and it should still be hot at lunch. If he's a big eater you may need 2 thermoses.
