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-

how about getting a bunch of tuna? you can make tuna melts easily, also can make tuna salads..

or you can make a huge batch of pasta salad and keep it in the fridge. a cool pasta salad recipe i made a while ago was sun dried tomatoes, black olives, basil leaves, mozarella, with a honey pomegranate glaze on top of the pasta.

Any ideas of what I can make quickly during the weekend in bulk that can last me until Thursday for lunch and dinner?
Pot of ham and beans, Chili, spaghetti with sauce.. To break up the meals keep peanut butter and maple syrup on hand. Great energy food, just put peanut butter on toast on a plate, pour maple syrup over the top. You can almost live on that stuff!
