Sounds good to me Mike. If there is one thing my guy's hate, it's
One thing we have really taken to is the new Lipton instant dinners,
rice and noodle based. Most of them actually taste pretty good (don't like the
Spanish rice one) and are (or should be; who knows actually) nutritional.
I have some scratch mix recipes that essentially duplicate some of these.
Another lunch idea: prepare these rolls ahead of time. It is a
Scandihoovian take-off of something introduced to us by an Oriental friend.
Get your favorite ground sausage, form into meatballs about 1" in diameter.
Cook thoroughly. Prepare bread dough, thaw out frozen kind or scratch.
Pull out chunks, as for making dinner rolls, except form around the
cooked meatballs. Bake a little longer than normal;i.e. 35-40 minutes or so.
When done, they can be frozen or refrigerated until needed.
Wrap what you need in aluminum foil when you pack, and warm them over
whatever source of heat you have. Works good for dunking in the traditional
cup-o-soup lunch, providing mid-day protein and bulk.
