I need work snack ideas

lissar | May 20, 2005 12:00 PM

My husband works overnights and 12-hour shifts, and frequently eats all his meals away from home. We've been relying too heavily on bought granola bars and fruit bars recently, and I'm trying to come up with a bunch of extras.

We're broke and don't have huge amounts of time, so everything has to be cheap, store well (either shelf-stable or freezable) and if homemade I'd prefer to make lots and lots. He's not a chowhound, and dislikes dried fruit, muffins, cake, and onions. Also, it must not need heating or cooling- no fridge or microwave. He has a thermos, and I send him with soup and stew, but i need more cold options.

So far, I've got pizza buns, trail mix, fruit, maybe home-made granola bars if anyone has a recipe, lots of baby carrots and fruit. We already go through tons of sandwiches, but interesting, preferably freezable sandwich ideas would be great.

Thank you VERY much for any suggestions.
