Since I tend to eat lower carb, I love to cook up a bunch of freah artichokes in chicken broth with some celery & tomatoes. I refrigerate them and then I have an artichoke for lunch during the day at home (messy because I dip it in a melted butter/healthy oil/soy sauce mixture). Also when making the chicken broth, I use chicken breasts w/ribs and love to snack on the cooked chicken bones! I'm a soup nut, so I love having the broth with added veggies, etc. for lunch. I always freeze it to have on hand.
I remember watching the Frugal Gourmet years ago, and he was always talking about those things that one saves for a 'private lunch'.

- Jam and cheese toasted sandwich...grew up on these.
- Ham and cheese toasted sandwich, absolutely covered in black pepper...or omit the pepper and add jam!
- Pasta with regular cheddar and tomato sauce (not a proper tomato sauce, but like ketchup, only in Australia its not so sweet) I was a real picky eater when I was a kid and this was one of the only things I really ate.

Hey I am French Canadian and I have never heard of that way of making Shepherd's Pie! It's like an upside down pie! Sounds very yummy and I will certainly try it next time.

I do many different combinations similar to the original Shepherd's Pie, but instead of frozen corn I use frozen mixed veggies - I always parboil the frozen veggies before layering them. I sometimes use rice instead of mashed potatoes...

My all time favorite is Liptons Chicken Noodle Soup with a couple of eggs added to it.

Yum!

Grilled pimento cheese sandwiches, I only eat these when I'm alone because they are very messy. But oh so good!!

Blue box mac & cheese with cut up hot dogs...I make this more for the kids than myself.

Chicken flavored ramen noodles with a can of chunk chicken added or shrimp flavored with the little frozen salad shrimp or fake crab meat added.

Grilled canned corned beef & cheese sandwiches. Another messy but good one!

Spaghetti noodles(or whatever pasta I have around) cooked then topped with butter, parmesan cheese, basil, & if I have any fresh tomateos I chop those up & throw them in too.

This is a great comfort food, but I would not serve it to guests. I like Creamed Tuna:
3 cans tuna
3 cans cream of mushroom soup
1+1/2 cans milk
3 boiled eggs, sliced

Add all to a pot and bring to just about a boil, just enough to get it hot. Serve over bread/toast or eat plain in a bowl.

Wow! I love the sound of that combination!

Can't wait to try it, I really like each and every one of those ingredients...
