for several days of food- i'd cook some lentil soup (rinsed & sorted lentils/soup-base or stock/ham/celery/onion & carrot dices/seasonings)- this & bread, mmmmm.
roast a few chix, then there is soup, sammiches of that, lettuce, tomato, mayo, chix sliced onto a lettuce salad; or a mayo-based salad on bread.
or a roast beef. beef/gravy on bread (i often use potato flakes instead of cooking taters & packets of gravy bases), soup of mirepoix/beef/wide egg noodles cooked seperately/stock or soup-base, etcetra), leftover sliced roast & sliced/cubed cheddar & some hanover pretzels & mustard.....
or bake a generous casserole of macaroni/cheese. broccoli florets.
pasta! that could be stored in zip-bags. there's so many ways a pasta gets used. could get the jarred sauces & get a couple kinds or make your own.
woah, those finals, sheesh! we get them often since my classes change so often.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
