So, I'm going out of town for a few days and want to leave my manfriend some food to eat while I'm gone. Otherwise, he will either A) shrivel up and die or B) eat out for all four days and spend all our monies.

What dishes are best for keeping in the fridge and reheating? I am thinking casserole type things...maybe a quiche?
He is notoriously picky. The big ones are no mushrooms, eggplant or curry. Dinner and brekkie ideas, please!

Lasagne or chilli.

I don't know about breakfast, I'm not good at it. I had cookies for breakfast this morning.

Stews like Veganomicon's Cholent are often better after a night in the fridge, and superfilling.
ETA I like stew for breakfast, too.

Second the lasagna and casserole. A casserole with lots of potato/quinoa/et.c. and he won't have to think about combining two frozen boxes of casserole and starchy thing.
Lentil stews? Thick, whith lots of vegetables he likes. Soup? He can eat them with bread.

Breakfast...nice bread and hummus? Cereal? Oatmeal? Soy yoghurt and fruit?

What about making up some taco filling and leaving him some taco shells or tortillas? You could make him a tofu or chickpea scramble for breakfast. If you make a bnuch of waffles you can freeze them. I think the same might go for pancakes and french toast but not too sure how well those will freeze. Chili is a good dinner to make a big pot of and reheat.

not that it needs to be heated, but tuNO salad (made with chickpeas or tofu) is really yummy - my spouse loves it with saltines.

i like to blend together cheezy sauce ingredients and put it in the fridge (uncooked). when it's time for cheezy sauce things my spouse heats it on the stove while he cooks pasta, makes nachos (a great idea for the taco fillings), or he'll drizzle it over a chili stuffed baked potato.

so i guess:
tuNO salad.
maybe a cheeze sauce if he'll make things to put it on.
you can get him some sammie fix'ins (fake meats, hummus, spreads, pre-slice some veggies for him, lettuce, spinach, etc.) & a yummy loaf 'o bread.
and i also agree on the chili, lasagna, and taco fillings.

For breakfast, the easiest option is to get some bagels, slice them in half and freeze them. In the morning, he can pop one in the toaster and then top it with whatever he wants (Better than Cream Cheese, Earth Balance, a pan-fried patty of gimme lean, veggies, etc). Waffles also freeze well. Scrambled tofu is easy to reheat.

I agree with lasagna and chili. I would also add that vegetable curry and bean soup are yummy leftovers.

Have you asked your partner what he wants? I've left my partner with a ton of food that was easy to reheat, with instructions and he ended up eating cold chili from a can and tortilla chips and cereal.

lots of good things already mentioned. I actually like mac n cheese made w/ Daiya better after a couple days. Stews, soups and chili made in crock pot, I also make my steel cut oats in the crock pot. That will last about a week.
A big pot of rice, and stuff to eat with it, and a few frozen meals are good in a pinch.
