Q: I have transitioned to being a stay-at-home mom and have enjoyed the challenge of cooking more of our meals from scratch. My biggest problem is weekend lunches.

Inevitably, we finally get out the door to have fun or run errands, and breakfast was hours ago and dinner is far away. What can I grab for us to eat? I am looking for five-minute-or-less prep — including any cooking in advance! — and able to be eaten in the car. Our only standby is a turkey sandwich. Help!
