Last week we were all about packing food for flying, and you had some great comments and suggestions to share. As promised, this week we’ll talk about packing food for road trips. (Road trip, yeah! Ahem. Sorry—I love road trips.)
Road trips are fun. You play games, stop whenever and wherever you want, sing at the top of your voice, recline your seat as much as you want, and you can pack drinks and jellies and never have to worry about making sure they fit in a single quart-size baggie. Plus you get to remove your shoes and your belt because you want to, not because you have to.
I know many will be on the road next week, so let’s talk about road trips already, shall we?
What are your favorite tips for packing food for road trips?
We like packing homemade empanadas or other hand pies for road trips. I’ll make both savory and sweet versions, and sometimes a combination of both, like cheese and a small amount of figs or jelly. And of course, nuts and chips for when an attack of the crunchies hits. We also pack a cooler for drinks and make sure there’s extra space for any unexpected treats we may want to purchase while on the road.
We know you have your favorites too, so tell us all about them! While you’re at it, do you also have any cool games or activities to make the time go faster and the trip more fun? Any favorite road tripping memories? We want to hear them all, so come share below!
