We have this food jar
, and we hate it. The lid must be pried apart for cleaning, and it isn't easy to do. We want a soup-safe, insulated food jar we can just pop in the dishwasher for cleaning, but this seems to be an impossible dream. Any recommendations?

What good packed lunches have you made? I only know sandwiches and pasta salad, but I can cook. And what kind of containers/bags are cheapest/convenient? [more inside]

So some Sunday in mid June I'm going to be driving from Los Angeles to Fresno. I will meeting a vegetarian with a sensitivity to wheat and soy products for lunch. I'm thinking about finding someone in Los Angeles to prepare an Indian tiffin for me. I'll need to pick up the tiffin on Saturday afternoon in order to make it to Fresno in time for lunch. Since this mid-June I'll also pick up a basket of organic cherries. I'm looking for someone who does delicious Indian take out food that can be stored overnight. I'm open to suggestions for non-indian treats.

Is there such a thing as a "cool" lunch box or bag? Not cool as in 1970s Godzilla lunch box, but one that you would carry to work and is not a lunch sack or one of the ones you always see? I like a nice design aesthetic (if possible), and I have been unhappy with the ones I have seen.
Extra points for insulation and something that can fit in a briefcase if inclined.

What do you drink with your lunch/dinner? I'm trying to cut Pepsi out of my life (again) and serving dinner with water seems too bland.

Sometimes I am in a rush and run into a convenience store to buy lunch. Problem is, I want that lunch to be reasonably healthy (lowish fat, minimal chemicals), without resorting to buying the 'fake versions' of junk foods (like baked potato chips, low-carb candy bars etc). Those foods usually have too many ingredients with 7 syllables each for my comfort. (There's nothing healthy about 'food' created in a chemistry lab.) So basically I always end up staring blankly at the shelves, and then buy an energy bar.
So - what would you suggest for a healthy(ish) lunch from a convenience store?

What's a good, simple lunch to make when hosting a few guests? I'm looking for something nicer than sandwiches, but not something that's going to seem like dinner fare. [mi]

I'm working as an hourly contractor. I'm going to an office to do it. I'm there pretty much 40 hours a week. Does one deduct the 30 minutes it takes to eat lunch from one's billing for the day? It seems only fair to. But then, I don't have a choice. It takes me a while to drive there, and I have to eat once during the day. It's not like I bill them for commute time to and fro in the morning and evening. Should I expect them to float me 30 minutes to chomp some grub in the middle of the day? They're cool and will probably pay me whatever I ask. For this very reason, I don't want to handle this the wrong way. But I don't want to be nickle and dimed to death either. What am I supposed to do?

PackMyLunchFilter! I have spent years trying to find healthy, quick and inexpensive brown-bag lunch items (I can cook and I'm willing to try anything) that I can rotate at school and work. What are your favourites? Bonus points for those who do it on a university-student budget; I'm above Kraft Dinner, but certainly not able to pack smoked salmon every day.
