I Have A Challenge for You...

milkyway4679 | Sep 23, 2008 08:54 AM

So, here's the deal. I am a college student, and as such, am living off a meal plan of 10 meals a week...I eat breakfast in my room (usually a granola bar and some Dannon Activia), but having only 10 meals for 7 days...I would need 14 meals...which I know I wouldn't use. I would love to have a 12 meal plan, but of course, they don't have one. So, I have to eat a meal in my room at least 3-4 days a week. So, I eat lunch in my room. And...of course...I am already pretty sick and tired of the junk I've been eating. Anything that can go in a microwave works for me. Also, I am limited because the best grocery store in the area is a super Wal-Mart (where they actually have a decent selection of cheese...I am currently munching on a smoked gouda:) ) challenge to you CH's is this.

-I need lunch recipes
-It needs to be cooked in the microwave
-Or not use a microwave at all
-It uses few refrigerated ingredients (not much fridge space)
-I would like it to be unique:) (If possible...)

The Super Wal-Mart actually has a lot...from breads, to cheeses, to a large Hispanic and Asian foods section (I was astonished when I first started shopping there), and the quality is the same as I would find at my supermarket near home.

So...can you help me out?
