• One-minute cold sesame noodle salad: Leftover noodles tossed with tahini (sesame seed butter), soy sauce, vinegar and a splash of hot sauce and sesame seeds. Add some veggies, or not.

• The BLT salad.
• Prosciutto-wrapped melon slices and a slice of prepared quiche, served warm or cold.
• Leftover rice turned into fried rice, served in a Thermos.
A big oops
And that lunchtime item I packed for my high school daughter many years ago?
A can of beer.

Lesson learned: Pack lunches the night before. Or have the kids do it.
