Thread: Food on the run.

    Default Food on the run.

    As it stands right now, we have to eat two nights a week at the dance
    studio. But that could change. They want to change the schedule on two
    days and if they do, it will be better for us in that we will get out of
    there earlier and spend less time there. But that will mean another meal
    there!

    If they make the change, it will give us a half an hour to eat dinner on
    those two nights. The other night will give us an hour.

    Although there are places to eat around there, none are really suitable for
    us. McDonald's, a Teriyaki place and Subway. Yes, I know Subway does have
    salads, but frankly I had one once and it was nasty. Plus the meat is
    suspect for Angela. Too much change of cross contamination from wheat.

    There is a grocery store in the strip mall. In a pinch we could get
    something from them. They do on occasion have plain cooked chicken breast,
    but it seems like they never do on the days she is dancing. Then there is
    always canned chicken. And they do have things like baby carrots and cut up
    fruit. They even have some gluten free bread that Angela can eat, although
    I would have to purchase a whole loaf of it. I know that sounds weird to
    say it because most bread comes as a loaf But I mail order two slice
    packets for her. And perhaps it would be a good idea to keep one of those
    in my van.

    Last year we did have one meal a week at the dance studio. Most of the time
    I just made extra of whatever we were having for dinner one night and packed
    it up for later. Sometimes I put stuff in the freezer. Angela complained
    about that. She doesn't like the quality of stuff that has been frozen and
    reheated in the microwave.

    Sometimes we took chicken nuggets, an Ian's kid's meal I (I didn't eat the
    cake that came with), green or pasta salad, soup, or if I had nothing else I
    could fix quickly, just a pouch of pre-cooked rice with some canned chicken.

    Tonight I made taco salads. Although they were really good and people were
    literally drooling over them, they were a heck of a lot of work and I used
    up a lot of plastic bags getting all of the components there. I didn't want
    to assemble them ahead of time for fear that the greens would get soggy.
    And I wanted to heat the meat.

    So now I have to think of some new things to make. Things that can be eaten
    quickly. Although her break is a half an hour on two of those days, she
    also has to change her clothes and I have to put her hair in a bun. Luckily
    I have gotten really good at doing buns and it no longer takes me a half an
    hour and a lot of cursing under my breath like it used to. Heh. Now I can
    do it in a minute or two.

    I know that a sandwich would be the obvious choice, but neither of us really
    like sandwiches. We certainly can eat them every once in a while just for
    convenience sake. I have some really good pre-cooked hamburger patties that
    I got from Costco. They heat in a minute in the microwave. We can take
    those with some raw veggies, but I will have to get her some gluten free
    buns. I don't normally keep those in the house. I can manage a small bun.
    Most of those are low enough in carbs for me. Not that I do low carb. Just
    lower than I used to eat.

    Thing is this year, I won't ever have any leftovers to bring. The two
    nights that we will be dining at home are days when we eat dairy. We're
    only allowed to have it twice a week and we eat it on set days. But I guess
    I could make extra of whatever it is I am going to make and we could eat it
    twice.

    Whatever I make has to be free of wheat, soy protein, dairy, eggs, peas,
    lentils, peanuts, almonds and oysters due to our allergies and the
    soy/thyroid problem I have.

    Anyone have any ideas? There is a microwave and fridge/freezer. I also
    have plenty of insulated containers so I could take heated food from home in
    those as well. Thanks!

    My thoughts would be a hearty soup, either home made or packaged that you
    can use and a sandwich or salad, premade at home to maximize time for
    eating and digesting a bit before starting the dance class. You could
    also do a stew that could be used on two days, say Mon adn Wed, if you are
    havign the dairy on Tues. and would only need some light salad or raw
    veggies and fruit for dessert.

    I know that when I was in high school and taking dance class 6 days a
    week I couldn't eat more that a snack before classs. I would eat when I
    got home, some years at 7:30 and others, closer to 9. On the very late
    days, my mother would put my dinner on a plate and keep it warm over a pot
    of simmering water. No microwaves in those days:-) On the 7:30 days I
    would get home while my folks were stiill eating, so I would just eat
    then. I know that Angela is in jr. HS, so younger, but the problem is the
    same. How late do you get ome from the studio?

    I alsos used to do homework in the afternoo as well as after I got home
    from class.

    I used to pack substantial homemade soups, such as lentil, in soup thermoses
    when I was taking my son straight from a music lesson to the youth symphony.
    Chili also worked. Anything that is "soupy" and you can both eat?

    The dairy is not something we would eat at the dance studio. I don't know if
    soup could be eaten that quickly but we could try.

    Some days it is 9:15 and other days 8:15. I am at the studio with her at
    the moment. So I will not be home to cook. Once she gets the hang of her
    schedule, I will be at home. The thing is, last year the parents complained
    that there was no time to eat. So this year they built in some time so the
    kids can eat. So we will be eating there.

    Angela doesn't like soup very much. She will eat chicken and noodle and I
    do have several cans of gluten free chicken and noodle. So I could make
    that for her. I can eat other canned soups. I don't really like making
    soup from scratch simply because I always wind up with so much of it! Other
    than that it is easy to make. Thanks!

    If you read what I wrote you will se tht I did NOTY suggest the dairy meal
    for the studio, but to make a stew on one day, but enough for two days.
    eat some on day one. On day two have dairy at home. On day three have
    stew again in the thermous. Two meals of stew with one cooking but you
    don't have to have the smae food two days in a row. You have the at home
    dairy meal in between.

    Oh. I see. Sorry. As it works out, the two days we will be eating there
    will be in a row. They will not be making the other change.

    What time are the dance classes? I remember when my boys played
    football. Their twice weekly training sessions didn't finish until 6.30.
    We usually didn't eat dinner on those nights until 8-8.30.

    One of my daughters did swimming training 5 mornings and evenings a
    week. They all ate breakfast at the pool in their special lockup kitchen
    after morning training and before being transported to school. In the
    evenings my daughter would eat about 9pm. Homework was done straight
    after school, then she would have a snack - bowl of cereal, toast or
    fruit or whatever (but early enough that she didn't feel bogged down
    while training).

    My daughter and myself had a favourite on the run meal. My salad bowl
    I would cut up lots of different veggies and some canned chopped
    beetroot and pineapple and usually chicken - chopped egg and cheese work
    equally well. Let it drain for a few minutes in a colander then throw in
    a tub of cottage cheese - mix well and divide into plastic bowls with
    lids. The cottage cheese ended up being purple We still love it for a
    quick and easy meal while out. My eldest daughter is 38 and she still
    takes this to work 2-3 times a week for lunch.

    Why must you eat there? Why can't you eat before or after Angela's dance
    classes? It seems that eating at home would solve all your problems. At least,
    you could eat before or after Angela's dance classes so that you wouldn't have
    to find suitable food for both for you.

    If Angela truly enjoys dance classes, she can put up with some soup in order to
    have dinner afterwards.

    If you make and freeze various types of soup, you can vacuum seal them using a
    Food Saver, which will help preserve their fresh flavor and please Angela's
    anti-leftover proclivities. Also, if you rotate your frozen soups, you'll never
    have to eat the same soup two days in a row.

    Well, no. I won't be cooking at 9:15. Nor will she be eating then! If
    they are alloting us time to eat, that's when we'll eat. Makes no sense to
    do otherwise.

    I don't have a food saver and am not likely to get one. I also don't like
    to freeze things. For one thing we don't have a very big freezer. I am
    thinking soup is probably not a very good thing to take to the dance studio
    anyway. It's pretty messy to eat, seeing as how there are no tables there.

    I don't really want to give my whole schedule in case the burgers are
    checking in here.

    But one night we get there at 4:00 and don't get out till 9:00. There is an
    hour break that night. The other night. The other night the times are the
    same but we get an hour and fifteen minute break. Technically enough time
    to go out to eat, but no place suitable for us in the vicinity.

    I am thinking next week I will give her two choices. Either a hamburger and
    then the following day a sandwich on a bun, or chicken nuggets and then
    vegan tamales and black beans. In the first three cases there will be raw
    veggies. I won't have to cook any of that stuff. Just have to buy it.

    The problem is... She has so much homework that she really needs to get
    cracking on it as soon as we get in. There is no time for her to be eating
    dinner and certainly no time for me to be cooking it.

    I suppose I could do some stuff in the crockpot if I do it overnight or just
    put it in there early in the morning and then take it out before I leave.

    At any rate, she is eating better than the other kids. Most of them just go
    to Subway, day after day. Some of them are doing this as many as four times
    a week.

    Eesh! I read that at first as, "They all ate breakfast in the pool".
    Hehehe.

    I like a lot of different veggies in my salads and also kidney beans.
    Angela's favorite is a standard "American" mix of lettuce, cabbage and
    carrots, sometimes with a radish thrown in, with black olives, canned
    chicken and a sesame dressing.

    There is no time to eat before. Plus it would be too early for me. We have
    to leave the house around 3:30. She has a snack before. Eating after is
    too late. Besides, there is a planned break for eating dinner. That's when
    they're supposed to eat! Everyone does.

    Salad works so long as you keep the greens/veggies separate from the
    dressing. I have a little screw-topped jar to take the dressing along.

    Bean stew type things reheat really well, even from frozen - so long
    as you stir 3 or 4 times when reheating.

    Most foods will stay safe in the fridge for the best part of a week,
    so long as they're reheated thoroughly - so if you make something over
    the weekend, for instance, the leftovers would be OK for Thursday.

    But it freezes so beautifully, and you can control the ingredients so
    well!

    I don't eat dressing and mostly neither does Angela so that's not a problem.

    Yes, but I don't cook over the weekend except for on Sunday and that's a
    dairy day.
