    so far I'm thinking taco meat w/ cheese
    left over spaghetti
    mac-n-cheese
    homemade chewy granola bars
    homemade tastycakes
    homemade brownies
    fruit
    carrots

    but what else -- I really want to stock pile -- I have a deep freeze and want to make great frugal lunches -- easily

    I use the one from the site
    but I always double it!!
    plus if I have a box of the kashi granola cereal (our food banks give it away -- a lot) --- then I will use the whole box insted of chocolate chips or oatmeal -- and the result -the kids love it and it is packed with nuts and fruit and whatever else healthy was in the cereal -- they make three different kinds
    and otherwise I just buy diffent kinds of chocolate chips -- sometimes chunks, sometimes candy coated, peanut butter etc. they get eaten always

    <FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color="#000080" size="2">sounds like some of this needs to be heated in themicrowave. Is that available at school? I know ours won't do that unless its medically necessary. I'm still looking for great/frugal ideas for lunches. Mine start 1st grade next week. They'll be done w/sandwiches by mid Sept. I'm sure.

    Cold pizza is always good. I use the flaky biscuits as the

    crust-splitting it into 2 or 3. Then I top it with spaghetti sauce

    and cheese. You could even let them choose the toppings.
