We love a cold pasta salad too. I take fresh minced garlic and onion with basil, olive oil and vinegar. I mix it with corkscrew pasta - really easy to eat and holds up well to the mixing. Then to make it a meal I add either homemade grilled chicken or a box of Tyson or Louis Rich fajita or southwest flavor chicken. I sometimes add fresh veggies such as celery, peppers, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, etc. Combined with a side dish of fruits and you have a really easy and tasty meal.
For breakfast I make my own biscuit sandwiches. I bake bacon and sausage patties, drain and pat off the grease with lots of paper towells and put them into baked Grands refrigerator
bicuits. We like to add cheese but I do that when I reheat them since the biscuit and the meat take different amounts of time to reheat.
We try to find as many farmers markets or local specialty shops as possible to get fresh fruits and veggies and meats and cheeses. If we cook we prefer one pan type meals. I take Ziploc bags of my homemade spagetti sauces with uncooked pasta, boxed macaroni and cheese which we add ham, salmon, tuna or veggies into, beef stew, or Italian beef. The beef can be made into sandwiches, quesadillas or shredded onto a bowl of salad greens. I sometimes make pizza from the spagetti sauce and English muffins. And there are always bags of crunchy raw veggies and crackers for a quick and healthy snack.
