fun/exciting packed lunches?

Allison_ | Feb 15, 2009 09:36 PM

It's been a busy year, and my partner has been picking up a lot of slack. This week I have some time off, and want to spend it spoiling her. I'm the cook in the house, so one of the things I'd like to do is pack her nice lunches to take to the office. (Usually she throws together PB&J or a cheese sandwich.)

Unfortunately, I'm already out of ideas! I just about always eat at home, so I'm not used to packing lunches. Any suggestions?

Within reason, time isn't really an issue, because I enjoy cooking and have some time. I'm vegetarian, so preparing meat isn't my strength, but some sliced meat in a sandwich isn't out of the question. We've got a thermos, so soup will be on the menu at least one day. My partner can't handle really spicy dishes, and doesn't enjoy things very high in fat. We're also on a pretty tight budget, but I'm pretty handy with a grocery list so I can afford to splurge a little.
