Dinner in a hurry

I have a new dilemma in the cooking department.
I had to figure out, last night, a bunch of dinners that were easy to prepare, transportable, and yummy, so we can take them along with us to Will's football practices.
Okay... here's why...
I'm cheap.
I just can't see spending the money eating out every night,
even though it would be much more convenient. Since I am really watching what I eat,
I also really don't want to
eat food that I didn't prepare myself. I would much rather drop that money at
a department store than a restaurant or fast food joint. Catch my drift?
I came up with a few things that I think will fill us up, be tasty and still not break the calorie barrier I set for myself.
Egg White Burritos, brown rice and salad
Lavash Wraps, watermelon slices
30 minute Chicken, Couscous, salad
Goat Cheese and Baguette and cucumber salad
Chicken Taco Salad, fruit kebobs, tea
Tuna Sandwiches, veggies and dip, melon
Cheeseburger Salad, oven potatoes, melon
Sweet N Sour Pasta Salad, homemade bread, fruit
We love melons, can you tell?
Each meal will be serve with their choice of either unsweetened green iced tea or water.
I own a TON of the storage containers called Lock N Lock, and let me tell you...
You can throw a full container on the floor and it won't open for anything!
So I will be using only those to put our food into.
Gonna try and save some trees while I'm at it.
So... if you are ever in Redlands from 3-7 p.m. and are hungry, give me a jingle and come eat dinner with us! I'll always have plenty!

Sounds great! We can tell we have eaten to much junk when we all crave a salad.
