Our kids are picky (and school lunches are spendy) so we do a lot of thermos lunches. We save sandwich lunches for extremely busy days and field trips.
Here are some common thermos lunches around here:
-Pasta with some veggies and cheese
-Teriyaki chicken and rice
-Deconstructed burrito (filling but no shell)
-Send stuff for nachos or a taco
I make an extra batch of sauce, freeze it in ice cube trays and just make the pasta in the morning, thaw a cube in the fridge or microwave and done!
-Soup and stew
Easy to make extra!
What do you put in yours?
