Better Than A Picnic Lunch

Every week when we go on the road, I make a few different meals to have on the run so we don't have to a) stop for a long period of time and b) eat fast food.

Most of the time, the food is for Ed.  He doesn't like to do frozen meals, he won't eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and he often doesn't consider it a meal unless there's meat involved.  I can eat a bowl of cereal and be happy.

Anyway...this is usually what I pack for the two-and-a-half days we're gone.  In addition to real food, I bring snacks - oranges, apples, celery, carrots, pudding, sometimes cookies - to pass the many miles.

The day before we leave I usually I spend the entire day cooking and then I label everything with the date because my mind is seriously failing and four days later if this food is still in the fridge, I'll wind up throwing it away because I can't remember when I made it.

The containers in the photo are from last week.  This week I made steak and couscous, pork lettuce wraps (ground pork sautéed with onions, red peppers, water chestnuts, garlic, ginger), roasted vegetables (peppers, onions, carrots, cauliflower), spaghetti and meatballs (so cliché), boneless pork ribs, grilled chicken breasts, and spinach.

We are living the life and eating well while doing it!

Great idea. I used to put dates on everything that went into the freezer. (And homemade onion soup in containers.)

Way healthier and better eating, and the cooking of good stuff centers one.

They all look so good-I do this when making lunches for work also!
