In trying to adapt a 'real food' diet in our home, many challenges present themselves along the way. Lunch can be one of them with both my husband and I working outside the home. When I make dinner, I try to make things that will leave leftovers for at least me to take to lunch. Here is one meal that will stretch you a few days with pantry staples!
Dinner: Make up your favorite batch of chili & cornbread. Cook a package of spaghetti noodles up too; these will be used with tomorrow's lunch.
Lunch next day: Chili on top of spaghetti noodles, topped with cheese and sour cream for some Cincinnati style chili! I use these small canning jars to carry condiments for my lunch if I don't want to mix them in when I pack it.
Lunch day 2: By now you may have had enough Chili , especially if you stretched it more than a day! Let's completely change things up and move on to something with an Asian flare! Use up the rest of your cooked noodles to make yourself an Asian Noodle Salad for lunch!
