My son often times takes left overs with an ice pack, but he has access to a microwave. Simple pasta seems to be a favorite of his, so I always make extra pasta and pour some sauce over it and throw in a meatball or two. Sandwiches always work well, salads can work well. Pasta or rice dishes always reheat well. So do potato dishes.

Hi. I am Lynda. I usually eat at home and pack my own meals. However, I find that my family and I are stuck on the same things. Could use ideas for packing sack lunches for my 16 year old who is not a sandwich lover and needs to be able to survive being shoved in a backpack.
