Do You Stock the Fridge for Family When You Leave Town?

We're out of town this weekend, but we left a culinarily challenged husband at home. When this happens, we try to leave a few dishes in the refrigerator that taste fine warmed up (and cost less than takeout). Do you cook for loved ones before you skip town?

We made a simple pasta dish with crumbled sausage and roasted broccoli that can be dinner one night and lunch another day. It keeps well and tastes good heated up in the microwave.

Usually, we'll also have a couple of breakfast items on hand and some snacks lying around. Maybe some good cheese or a quick dip.

Of course, he's a grown man who is certainly capable of going to the store. But we're definitely the cook in the house, so his homemade options are limited.

We're curious what go-to dishes you make and store for family members when you leave town. Do you have standbys that keep and reheat well? Any standard snacks you leave for the kids?
