Lunch ideas for big boys?

Aka hubbies? Lol once we get moved up north I'll be doing up lunches for dh, but we don't usually have left overs for next day lunches because he's a night eater. He spends way too much on expensive gas station lunches right now so I'm looking for ideas. He works in the oil fields so no microwave to heat anything either. Oh, and any help with heavy duty lunch containers would be great too!

I believe thermos brand makes sturdy lunch boxes. You could do soup/stew in a thermos. Maybe you could do a one day a week lunch cooking or double your dinners and freeze so you can alternate leftovers for his lunch? Big sub sandwiches or bagel sandwiches.

How about cooking up a batch of soup?sometimes dh and I will make soups or other food just for lunches. We make stuff that isn't the kids' faves. Pasta and sauce is a good backup

When I sent lunches for dh I always made sandwiches and sent pretzels and an apple with it.
If your dh works in the cold soup/stew in a thermos is a great idea. Or chili

Chili and stew would work good in a thermos for the winter, soup that isn't super thick he doesn't like. Naturally. Lol

He said hot cocoa too.

I wish we had a big freezer to prefreeze portions for him, but we'll be full time RVing and have a tiny freezer...
