    Default Idea's for Hubbys lunch

    Hi everyone, looking for ideas for my hubby's lunches because at the moment his work site doesn't have a fridge or microwave... he's getting a bit over fruit, nuts, muesli bars, and vegemite sandwiches lol...

    ideas?

    Default Idea's for Hubbys lunch

    Pizza delivery!!!!!

    Lol a hard one.......that tinned chicken is pretty good for a tinned product and you can get it in all sorts of flavours. I used to eat it on crackers. You can also buy small cheese wedges that don't need refrigerating. Vege chips are yum and healthier than normal chips same as rice crackers. I also like to eat corn thins with peanut butter and jam on them instead of sandwiches. You can also buy desserts in the aisle that don't need refrigeration like custard and fruits and pudding in single serves. Savory muffins, zucchini slice, quiche can all be eaten at room temp and will be fine sitting in a thermo bag with a cold block in there for a couple of hours.
    Goodluck and I hoped I helped lol

    DP works on different sites and 99% of the time there's no fridges or microwaves etc. He refuses to buy lunch.

    He has a big esky and in that esky he puts 3 frozen ice bricks and 2 x 1.25 litre bottles of frozen water to drink throughout the day.

    Then he packs foods that like to be cold, like Asian crunchy salad and he'll mix in a tin of tuna. Or he makes curried egg sandwiches (makes it the night before but makes it with frozen bread, that stops the bread going soggy). Or he makes ham, pickles and cheese sandwiches or ham, cheese and tomato sandwiches, again on frozen bread.

    He takes all varieties of salads and mixes in tuna, and he takes lots of creative sandwiches (like left over casserole, spaghetti, lasagne, tuna casserole, and makes them into sandwiches).

    If he takes like a cup of soup, migoreng or other noodles. He fills his thermos with boiling water in the morning. It stays boiling for over 24 hours.

    I would just advise him to pack his lunch into an esky or thermal bag with a large ice brick.

    I would buy a fridge to go lunch bag, it keeps food cold for 8hrs and they come in a great range of sizes, they are the only lunch bags-boxes I buy now as our son uses his for school and his food comes home still cold, they come in family sizes to.
