Need meal idea

Does anyone have any good ideas.

I am looking to fix a cheap dinner for 3 tonight, but I want to cook something that I can take into work with me tomorrow. The only problem is there isn't a microwave so it will need to be eaten at room temp.

I was thinking about cooking a cut of beef and using the leftovers for a sandwich. Preferably not a pulled pork because it will take too long to cook tonight. I am not vary good with various cuts of meat, any ideas? Thanks

abj, this thread is about a French Canadian meat pie that is easy to make and tastes good at room temp. There's about 3 or four different recipes for it in here.

See whatcha think. I love this stuff.

Does not get any easier than this. Ok ok....here is one if you like cold spaghetti.

1 large Jar Prego Pasta Sauce of your choice(I like traditional)
2 pounds ground chuck
1 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

Pasta

Brown chuck...add sauce and seasonings...let simmer for 30 minutes partially covered and serve over pasta with a green salad on the side.

abj - PA Baker also posted this one - it definately fits iin the inexpensive category and if you heat it before you go to work it will still be good room temp.

One Pot Rice

AND if you'd rather use black-eyed peas or kidney beans you can do that - even add some corn or frozen carrots or whatever you have in your freezer to give it a bit more bulk.
