While I have for the past nine months or so eaten the food that is served up by the school canteen for lunch, what I got today has made me reconsider. I got a chicken salad baguette where the tomatoes were warm and soggy, the chicken was grey & the baguette was dry and then a muffin which smelled vaguely of meat. Yep. Call me crazy, but I don't think cakes aren't supposed to have a meaty aroma. Clearly they've been storing things where they shouldn't.
The point of this ranting is this: can you recommend me any decent microwave/just-add-water type meals that I can keep in the office? Think Pot Noodle but actually edible.
Thanks in advance!

Careful with Miso though, I personally find it to be great straight out the pot but rather nasty if it cools even slightly. Soon as it arrives at the table I down it!
Asda's own "pot snacks" are pretty good, kind of like pasta-n-sauce but in pot form, Chicken and Mushroom pasta, tomato and basil pasta, chow mein noodles, sweet and sour noodles etc etc....they are normally on 4 for £2 as well. Online Food Shopping - ASDA Groceries
I get the tins of chunky soaps from Aldi at 69p. They do a larger selection now, adding lamb with mint and chunky veg. A tin of that and a banana less than £1.00. Can't be bad. On Fridays, I have Aldi Herring in mustard or mango spice sauce. I put it on crispbread. Slightly more expensive at 89p but we all deserve the occasional treat

Soaps? I'm confused. I thought we were talking about food?
I mean the canteen food is bad, but it's not so bad I'll contemplate eating soap as an alternative!
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Pasta sachets for cups or even the larger sachets, they take 10 mins to cook in microwave but are quite substantial compared to the cup version.
Naked Noodle Ramen Noodle Soups are quite nice, as are the flavoured Uncle Bens Rices (The mushroom one is my favourite).
I think the bigger issue here is the quality and storage of canteen food being served to students - have you reported your experiences to SLT?
I have a food flask,
Prepare something at home and it's still hot at lunchtime.
Never used the canteen in 5 years.
