    Hi all

    I need some packed lunch ideas for work. We do have a microwave but i'd rather not use it as i'm sure it has it's own alien life force growing inside.:eek:
    Today i had Tuna, pasta, red onion and sweetcorn mixed with a tbsp of extra light Hellmans.
    I tend to use my HXB for breakfast too.

    Any ideas gratefully recieved ;)

    I usually have pasta salads, noodle salad and rice salads. If i'm too cold for salads, I have left overs lol.

    I like a nice noodle salad me- cooked drained egg noodles, courgette, carrot, scallion, peppers with soy sauce and mixed herbs. :D I also just throw stuff together- a pile of veggies and whatever base, sometimes with meat (chicken pieces, bacon, tuna etc). :) I'm lazy so it needss to be quick for me.

    Think with the cold weather approaching, i think i'd be inclined to give the microwave a good clean so i could use it.
    Then heating up leftovers would be a good option ( purposly cook too much to incorperate 'leftovers')
    *Jacket potatoes and beans and cheese HEA or syns or any other topping you like, tuna and sweetcorn mayo, chilli con carne,

    *Frittatas and tortillias - cold or can be reheated

    *homemade soups

    salads - not boring ones, add in chopped apple, figs, oranges, grapes to jazz them up

    Leftover roast veggies and cous cous - all you need to do is pour water over the cous cous and come back in 5 minutes.

    Cook extra new potatoes and mix with extra light mayo and yoghurt, herbs, veggies and some sort of protien, even your HEA cheese to make a potato salad for 1.5 syns (mayo).

    Mix your HEA cheese in with quark the night before and in the morning grab some raw veggies for cheesy dip and crudités.

    Take a flask with soup in, heated up in the morning before you leave for work

    Invest in a food flask to keep meals warm, so you can take different things from soup if you really really dont want to use the micro.

    Personally I would clean the micro, fling in a bowl of water with a slice of lemon in. Put on full power, it will steam and freshen the micro. Good scrub, bobs your auntie.

    Wow Lexie dog! Lots of ideas there!
    Believe me i have cleaned the micro many many times and am fighting a losing battle.
    Loving the coucous with veggies and maybe i could try a special fried rice thingy?? That could work too...
    Also.... are figs free?

    Not only are they free, they are superfree and a Speed food! Fresh only mind, canned, cooked or dried would be synned.

    I have once sliced through my salad for tomorrow.

    i do a casserole in my slow cooker and bring portions to work to heat up in the microwave. I am also a fan of making a stir fry the night before, adding prawns / chicken / quorn to a bunch of veg - beansprouts, mangetout, mushrooms etc then chili, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Its divine! Today i had without noodles or rice, but you could easily add them in on a EE day.

    Other things i do is microwave omelettes, pasta n sauce reheated the next day is good too, cous cous (just add hot water!) packets of savoury rice with extra veg and quorn or chicken thrown in - the choices are endless!!

    enjoy xx
