I'd like to prepare a few simple dishes in celebration of Women's History Month at school. One of my ideas is to pick recipes from women who have influenced my food life -- maybe a recipe from my mother and a couple from my favorite female cookbook authors. Or perhaps favorite foods of women who have made history -- I'm not sure what recipes that would include though. I want the dishes to tie into the theme of Women's History Month somehow. The recipes should lend to advance preparation, easy transportation, and should also be something that can be served cold, at room temperature, or reheated with a microwave since I won't have access to a stove or oven. Any ideas?
