Inspired by the meal planning thread, I'm looking for inspiration of good, filling recipes that work well as leftovers and to take into the office for lunch the next day.

A bit of context: no kids, and my DH works long hours so often isn't back til later. He does his share of cooking but at the moment it's mostly me.

We're pretty adventurous but I'm in a bit of a cooking rut, making things like lasagne that we'll eat for days on end... looking for some more spring/summery ideas, and things that work well as leftovers for the office next day (microwaveable).

Chicken with spicy rice,
With a side salad and a homemade dressing

Tonight we are having hawian chicken and veg skewers with grilled sweet potato and salad. I'll chop and left over sweet potato, pineapple and chicken, mix with more peppers, chopped spring onions and celery, mix it up have for lunch tomorrow.
Later in the week we are having a chicken tagine. I will do extra cous cous and add leftover chickpeas, with peppers, red onion, chopped cornicons, pomegranate seeds and flaked almonds.
Also doing a lentil Dahl which will go in wraps for lunch the next day.

Forgot the obvious! veggie chilli, nice warm in a wrap, actually tastes better day 2!
Pasta arabiata
Frittata, really nice cold with salad the next day.

I make chicken stock, so after a roast we'll have a chicken noodle soup with ginger, chilli, garlic, noodles, sweetcorn, chicken scraps, and anything veg like that can be shredded and added (leek, celery, carrot, broccoli, last night). That reheats well.
