    Thanks!! I am the same. I get bored very easily :cry:
    I am not a great pasta lover :mad:
    I was going to make chicken breast fillets and potatoe wedges and take them in with me but not too sure if i should reheat the chicken bk up in the micro :confused:
    I hate cooking meals and having waste left over but I am not one for freezing meals. I am always scared that they are not nice when frozen and i get poisoned hehehehe :p xXx

    I was going to post the same question!

    It is so annoying cooking something nice and then having to reheat it at work, I do 3 Lates followed by 3 Earlies each week so constantly trying to think of new things.

    A few favourites that I bulk cook and that also freeze well are chilli, sweet potato and spicy bean stew, lasagne, casserole.

    Stuffed peppers heat quite well, I cook a pepper halved for about 10-15 mins, I then stuff it with Batchelours savoury rice (which I've cooked but leave more water than normal so it reheats better) and some feta cheese, I then put back in oven for another 10-15 mins until the feta is browner. Any rice that didn't fit in the pepper halves I put in Tupperware and then put stuffed peppers on top.. Lovely and quite quick to make.

    I find pasta isn't brilliant to reheat, always looking for new ideas so anticipating replies to your post as well x

    I always heat chicken back up, I think as long as it is heated up properly it should be ok, perhaps check the Food Standards website, it might say on there.

    I wish we did a week of the same shifts, this week I've got Nights Fri/Sat 22.30-7.00am, back in on a Late 1630-1.00am, then a Late starting at 13.30 followed by two Earlies, one starting at 6.30 the next at 5.30.. My body doesn't know whether it's coming or going! X
