I was there in late June and had a scrumptious dinner at S&P Oyster company. It's a beautiful location too you can sit on a patio right on the riverfront. I had a lobster and avocado appetizer and a seafood risotto. Was a lovely evening!

I feel for you and agree lunch is the biggest challenge to adapt to - and with the person who said anything you make for dinner can be adapted to lunch. I do a lot of making big batches of chili, soups and stews, anything liquid or moist like that which you can easily freeze. I portion it out into individual servings for the freezer that I can then just grab quick and pop in the microwave. For the bottomless pit eater you could also give him rice to go with it - I've found cooked rice freezes fine too. 

 

Also, risotto is surprisingly easy to make (especially if you have a non-stick pan) and quite filling and freezes well too if you want to make big batches of that, I often add some cooked chicken to a vegetable risotto recipe to include some protein. 

 

And, for cool meals in the summer quinoa can co quite a long ways, I use it to replace couscous and make like a black bean, corn, bell pepper and quinoa salad you can eat straight out of the fridge. A lighter lunch is veggies and hummus - you can make your own from canned garbonzo beans and add whatever flavors you like.

 

Good luck!
