16 Make Ahead Lunches or Dinners


I consider myself a vegetarian foodie. The meat eaters I normally make meatless lunches for are not. A majority of these meals I made for myself. They are wonderful make ahead lunches or dinners. I love the cottage cheese potato salad in this batch so much that I am thinking about making it again soon.
