Lunch!

Well, Hubby is off to work for another week. The only way I can ensure he eats semi-healthy with the $15 a day per-diem he gets for working out-of-town is to send him with food as well. Seriously, the only other option for him eating 3 meals a day on that at all would be a dollar menu – and that’s not particularly healthy fare. At least, his choices on them are not!

This week, he’s got 2 containers each of turkey soup, venison stew, baked ziti, chicken with creamy basil sauce, and the tenderloin dinner we had for today as well. He also has pasta & sauce, mac&cheese, several baked potatos, tuna fish,peanut butter and jelly, bread, fruit, and a variety of canned goods to balance out the meals he cooks on the road.

During the week, when we cook, we’ll set aside plates in the freezer for him to take to work for the following week. So far, it’s working out fairly well. Of course, there are some meals we’ll have during the week that just don’t freeze very well, so we’ll double up – so to speak, on others.
