I actually made lunch for R, twice!! and it was pretty tasty. It was a bean salad (she likes beans) and I used this recipe as recommended.
I still need to buy a rice cooker and maybe a toaster oven (R has been ill or on school break, so I haven't had any time to shop yet) as the next step for using some of the other suggestions.
My next goal is to make an omelette. I am planning on trying this recipe per Gigi's suggestion (except with oil instead of butter, since I'm allergic. Hopefully it won't ruin everything?).
