I make Caponata a couple of days before we want to eat it, then spread on bread for a yummy lunch. It's packed full of veggies and tastes great hot, warm or cold. Travels well!

I make a grilled chicken or grilled salmon which can be made in the oven. This would be added to salad that has fresh strawberries,walnuts,gorgonzola. A lf dressing on side. You can also add other fruit to the salad like mandarin oranges,blueberries,etc. I get some whole grain bread to serve with it.
In large mixing bowl, beat eggs well. Mix in flour, milk, mustard and baking powder. When the dough is well combined, mix in cheese, spinach, and onion.
Spoon mixture into the baking dish and spread out.
Bake for 35 minutes, should be a bit golden on top
Let cool completely, at least an hour or you will have a huge melted cheese mess !! Once cooled cut into squares.

There are some awesome quinoa salads that are nice and fresh and light... and no mayo so they don't have that spoilage factor. In the SP recipes there is one with black beans, corn and a lime-cilantro vinegrette... YUMMY!!
