What about boil in the bag stuff? You can get fish in parsley/butter sauce or beef in gravy. Boil in a big pan with tinned potatoes and peas/green beans, et voila, a one pot meal!

No no no. You don't wash the pot. You put it in a spare carrier bag/bin bag and bring it home with you unwashed and stick it in the dishwasher.

Just give it a good soak, it'll be fine. grin

Get some of the stir in sauce - then you just soak rice noodles in boiling water for 3 minutes and stir in sauce plus some tuna (no drain sort in foil packet) or cheese (pregrated)

Or supernoodles (better than pot noodle, esp if you get real asian ones and add soy sauce) - take large enamel mugs and they are done in there

Boil in the bag rice with tuna and sweet chilli sauce

brioche keeps much longer than bread rolls

Oh, good tip about brioche! Darn it, we will just have to subsist on brioche and leave the wholesome wholemeal bread behind. grin

Go to Hari Krishna for every meal. Lovely food and you just donate what you like (money I mean, not kids or husbands)

For lunches, we love the Ainsley Harriott packets of couscous - they are great for camping.
Boil the kettle, pour the water on, leave that to "cook" while you open a tin of salmon/tuna (remember to liberate some sachets of mayonnaise/salad cream from a pub or fast food place, to mix in with the fish) or corned beef, bit of salad in the first day or two, or a tin of bean salad after that, and maybe some crackers or krispbreads, bag of kettle chips perhaps. If you throw in a jar of sundried tomatoes/peppers too, something like that, you can have quite a feast.
It's quite a cheap, tasty, reasonably healthy lunch, for hardly any effort, and ready in about 5 minutes flat, with minimal washing-up.
