Ideas For Portable Dinners?
Posted 25 November 2012 - 12:10 PM
-Grilled Chicken, roasted peppers, and potatoes kept cold and then microwaved.
-Grilled or Roasted chicken salad. (Lettuce, cheese, chicken, and italian dressing)
-Grilled or Roasted chicken wrap. (Same as above- just in a Rudi's wrap)
-Leftover stews or soups that my stepmom makes throughout winter.
-Spaghetti in the thermos and then a small tossed salad in the tupperware.
That's all so far! Any suggestions are appreciated!!

So I take it Zatarain's Spanish rice is safe? Are any of their other rices safe?

Chopped romaine lettuce with tuna, ham, egg salad.
" " " " chopped hearts of palm, black olives, sunflower seeds & vinagrette.
" " " " sliced cooked potatoes, green beans, hard boiled eggs & vinagrette.
" " " " sliced cooked chicken, mandarin oranges, shaved parmesan cheese and ceaser dressing
" " " ", crumbled goat cheese and sliced pear and walnuts.
(I buy the romaine hearts and wash and spin them dry, then bag in various serving sizes. If I don't feel like spinning the chopped lettuce, I stick it the roughly chopped lettuce in a colander and prop it on a tilt in the sink after giving it a good shake. Every now and then I give the colander a shake and tilt it again.) It works best to separately pack the salad ingredients.
Other things: Skyline Chili (with Cheese), but that takes 7 minutes to cook. Leftover rice and red or white beans. You can pack a piece of parchment paper to place over your food in the scary microwave. And you can use a store flier or a section of newspaper or paper towel to use as a placemat at the lunchroom table.
Wolfgang P has a couple of soups that are gluten-free. I usually stretch them out a bit due to the expense. You can add various left overs, nuke ( or pack in your thermos) and serve over a bed of rice. (Pack a paper plate for that.)
If you cook an extra potato or two, you'll have them to warm up and put crumbled bacon or ham and cheese on.
Or a sweet potato is always good, just on it's own.
Hope that helps.
As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

I know you were asking for dinner options, but if you ate a dinner type meal at home before work, you could always pack more like a lunch option for the evening meal at work, Then you could enjoy a nice salad like Marilyn suggested, or a lettuce wrap with ham and sliced tomato. On Sundays I make a small batch of homemade soup mostly with veggies I have in the house and chickpeas and beans too (frozen) and have that a lot for lunch, or an easy dinner when I don't feel like cooking throughout the week.
