Lunch Ideas (needed)

I''m looking for lunch ideas. We did a Bahamas trip and had plenty of great food, mostly from stores, but kinda fell flat on lunches. My hubby LOVES deli type sandwiches, which can''t be had. Tunafish gets old. Soup isn''t great when it''s warm outside.

So, any new lunch ideas (besides leftover dinner) would be appreciated.

I sub out sandwich bread for bagels, pita or tortilla bread but use the same fillings.

For instance...

Leftover chicken cut up
BBQ sauce

Mix together and heat up

Put on Torilla
Slice on some cheese

Fold up and eat it.

Pita or Flat Bread is more durable for big sandwiches, but won''t last as long. I store both in the fridge if I won''t use them within a few days.

Lender''s bagels in the cold storage area in the store will last a couple weeks easy, again, just keep them in the fridge. My favorite here is my famous Bagel Burger.

Grill up a hamburger (I pre-package and vacuum seal individual burgers and freeze them) grill bagel, a little mayo, a little cheeze and I''m in heaven.

My favorite is chicken salad. Chicken comes in cans like tuna, but is a welcome change from tuna. Drives my wife nuts, since I like chicken salad too often.
The other standby is cheddar cheese, peperoni and green olives, with crackers (if its on your diet)--makes an interesting combination.
Both of these are easy to prepare, easy to eat, are a change from tuna, and reasonably interesting to eat.

Here''s a nice change that can last for a few days. Compliments of my wonderful wife. One of my favorites:

cubed feta cheese (1 small package)
pitted black olives (1 can)
chopped green onions (1/4 to 1/2 cup)
oregano (to taste)
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
paprika (to taste)
olive oil (1 cupish)

Mix all ingredients together. Serve with saltine crackers. Do not refrigerate. Cover and leave out. Lasts 2-3 days, but is usually consumed well before then. Perfect for a boat snack or light lunch.

I''ve always liked sliced meat of some kind, salami or something like that, some cheese, roasted peppers are great, some grapes. Anything easily picked up in one hand. Used to put stuff in zip lock bags for when I solo sailed. worked great and if I had to put it away fast just zipped the bags and tossed them into galley sink until later.

Package of mixed colored spiral noodles maybe two boiled. Olive oil red wine vineger make up with spices to your taste NO MAYO it will not keep. Dry salami in cubes some cheese in cubes black or green olives keeps well in sealed container for a few days. Mufalatos are good to ham capacola bologna mozerela cheeze crushed olive and permento relish in olive oil on top toast small round bread if you can get it french or italian pressed flat yummy.
Plain old grilled cheeze with tomato is real good and easy to make.

My favorite meal is a salad of:

2 plum tomatoes, cut into chunks,
1/4 sweet or vidalia onion, chopped,
1 ripe avocado, cubed,
1 doz. seeded olives,
1 clove minced garlic,
6 oz. cubed chicken (steak, ham or turkey),
1 tsp. favorite herbs, optional (I use Italian mix)
salt & pepper to taste,
1 tbsp. lemon juice,
1 oz. diced cheddar cheese to top.

Turn over gently to coat the veggies with the lemon juice and let it sit for an hour so that the tomato (very little from a plum) and lemon juices marinate with the pepper and herbs. Of course, the meat is optional.

try this one...stuffed plum tomatoes...

cut top off plum tomato (you can use other tomatoes but the plums are usually firmer and withhold bashing around a bit more)

scoop out all the seeds and insides. Take a piece of chees (approx. the size and shape of the inside of the tomato and rol a slice of salami/ham/procuitto,etc. around it and stuff it into the tomato cavity.
Low carb, no bread sandwich...
