More often than not, it's been the typical american lunch: sandwich, veggie, fruit, chips, cookies. Sometimes I make him different kinds of wraps. Every so often I would fill a hot thermos with stew or soup. But not as often as I'd like.
Tomorrow my husband begins a big hotel remodel and he'll be commuting an hour each way. So tonight I prepared him his lunch and breakfast so he'll be all set for his early rise at 4:30am. He leaves at 5:30am and waiting for him in the fridge for breakfast are my famous Berry Cream muffins and a ham and cheese quiche.
For his lunch, I made him Waldorf chicken salad on a bun, dill pickle, and some chocolate chip cookies. For extra snacking, I packed him some extra quiche, extra muffin and some of the chicken salad on a bed of greens. He'll be a long ways from home and I want him to have more than enough food to tide him over till dinner.
How about you? Do you send your husband off to work with homemade food and if so, what are your favorite ideas? I would like to pack him some stupendous lunches in the coming weeks to look forward to each day and I'm looking for yummy ideas! I'm going to try to put in some little notes, too.
