Sounds good DJ.
Use your recipes but put it into two or three jars for several good sized serves.
Enjoy summer or winter in your case!

This mornings breakfast in a jar from http://www.theyummylife.com/recipes/222/Banana%20Cocoa%20Refrigerator%20Oatmeal
Banana cocoa refrigerator oatmeal

1/4 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yoghurt
1.5 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsn cocoa powder
1 tsp honey (or any preferred sweetener)
1/4 cup diced ripe banana - I used a very small one for this amount

Add oats, milk, yoghurt, chia seeds, cocoa powder and honey to a jar.  Give it a good shake to combine then add the bananas and stir to mix through.  Refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days.  Eat chilled.  245 calories if you eat the lot, I only eat 1/3 of this amount.

Yum JD sounds great.
These meals salads in a jar are working well as I recover from a knee replacement.
I mix these up with thermi and put into the fridge ready for me to hobble past and grab.
They are easy to carry as I am using a walking stick.
The kids grab them for a snack.
It is a good way to eat healthily with good portion size while recovering.
They look appealing which is great as I haven't had much of an appetite.
