A.Balaban Posted March 12, 2012 Share Posted March 12, 2012 First: My DH is the cook in the house. I can cook, I just don't enjoy it. While he has been unemployed, he has done 100% of the cooking. So, it's time for a switch....:auto: My DH is starting work at an overnight position until his second job kicks in in about 2-3 weeks after that. So, with his hectic schedule I want to have as many "Grab and go" meals ready for him to take with him. For breakfast: I am thinking like yogurt, fresh fruit... make something I could make ahead and stick in the freezer and he could heat up and take with him? Maybe something like a smoothie to mix it up? For his lunches: I have no idea. I don't know yet what he will be able to bring to his second job (if he will have access to a refrigerator) but at least at his overnight job he will have access to a refrigerator for his "lunch" I am so not a cook. :tongue_smilie: For snacks: Individual servings of nuts (variety), keep a case of bottled water in his car, fresh fruit and vegetables with dip... but then I run out of ideas? I am thinking of buying the smaller containers of applesauce and then he can eat it over several days. And lastly, my budget is pretty strict. I can't buy a lot of specialty items, but we do have a wide variety of items (like I said, my DH likes to cook.) I'm not worried about dinner because he will either eat with the family, or eat leftovers from dinner. I'm also planning on "doubling" some recipes and freezing that so he can pick out what he'd like as it works for him... But single serving ideas would be great. I am so happy he found a job I think I am overcompensating by trying to shove food down his throat before he is even working.... :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
