I know it's been done before but I'm doing it again. Packed lunches which aren't sandwiches.

I have to go back to packed lunches next week. For me, not the DCs.

So far on my menu I have:

Pasta, pesto, rocked and pine nuts.

Tabouleh. Maybe with some cheese on top.

What else?

I'm thinking stuff I can do in bulk and DH and I can both have a couple of times a week.

My sons favourite is cold fusilli, strips of ham, cheese and cucumber, topped with drizzles of salad cream.

I back the sand but add a honey mustard dressing instead.

I like cold rise and peas. Up til a certain thread this evening I also liked cold noodles and beansprouts sad

Bean salad is yummy, esp spicy one, cold salmon with cucumber and tomato but perhaps shorter fridge life.

<feels peckish now>

Read this article the other day which is about exactly this.

Oh dear SacreBleu what happened with cold noodles and beansprouts???

MaryMotherOfCheeses Thu 09-May-13 23:56:21

Good link Snazzy.

We won't have facilities to heat stuff up so it's going to have to be salad in a tupperware thing I think.

Tuna mayo, with carrot stocks to dip, or Little Gem lettuce leaves to scoop.

I make packed lunch everyday - no sandwiches, mostly leftovers - from the freezer or the fridge.
Mostly soups, stews, tomato sauce, puy lentils and sausage/bacon/chicken. Chicken drumsticks, sausages, homemade nuggets, pasta, curry, homemade pies and sausage rolls, frittata muffins, salads, Parma Ham.

Can't possibly on a food thread Mary have a gander in AIBU

I have a couple of not these but similar

So I can have a bit of more than one thing at a time smile your name suggests a good cheese, crackers and fruit selection might be an idea too

<definitely peckish now, off to fridge before bed for some Agur>

And more, fritters like falafel or veg mixed with potato and cheese fritter, hummus with cucumber and peppers to scoop.
