@MeganTacky2247: I’m sorry I can’t help–I’m looking for the same thing!
I pack lunches for Darling Husband during the week, and also for myself for two days during the week. Mine usually have a frozen diet-type entree, sugar free pudding, and a Diet Coke. DH gets a peanut butter sandwich, sugar free pudding, sliced apples (or baby carrots), and a Diet Coke. It’s not very exciting to eat, and I do find myself wishing we could afford to eat lunch out more often.

We love lentil soup… It’s very filling and makes a ton. I also do spaghetti with mushrooms once every couple of weeks. Tons of leftovers from that!

Our new favourite thing is “sushi sandwiches”. A local grocer does these, so we make them at home. Basically you cut up everything like you would for sushi rolls (jullienne peeler works wonders) and then roll it like sushi, refridgerate over night and cut up before packing. My fav is chicken ceaser:
-julienne carrots, cucumber
-thinly cut red pepper
-thinly cut cheese
-thinly cut chicken
-one piece of lettuce
-one large tortilla
1. Put the cheese on the tortilla. Put on the cheese. Layer in the cucumber, carrot, red pepper and chicken.
2. Wrap tightly and refridgerate overnight in saran wrap.
3. Cut into 1 inch pieces, put into a container, and serve with ranch dressing on the side.

I just make extra of what I cooked for dinner and pack it for his lunch the next day. If we went out or something then he gets a sandwich. However, I make lots of different types of sandwiches and try to liven them up. 2 days ago I took a chicken breast that I marinated in balsamic dressing grilled it and then put diced sundried tomatoes on and then a piece of mozzarella and used pesto instead on the bread instead of mayonnaise. I also make him fruit and veggie smoothies to take.

I am a little strange and I let the little kid come out in me every once in a while. Note I only pack my own lunch. But I love taking meat, cheese and crackers and making my own little sandwiches.
I also do lots of left overs.
We make our own bread in the bread maker and S loves when I make a ham the same day so he can make ham sandwiches on homemade bread.
Some times we make pita pizzas for supper and when we do that, I make an extra one and I take that for lunch the next day. (They are better if you toast it the night before. then it doesn’t get soggy)
I tried making soup once that was a fail… I may try again one day…. Maybe lol.
Ummm I am trying to think of what else…

@mwitter80: Agreed. I usually try and use the “cook once eat twice” method and pack the second meal for lunch.
I also made a quiche over the weekend and will be packing slices with a side salad.
