Travel Snacks

In CategoryAdventure

We are leaving Arizona today and heading for St. Louis.

That will be a loooooooong drive.

Snacks are an important part of traveling. You gotta have something to shove in the mouths of whiny children. To distract them.


Anyway. Here is what I will be packing –

Meatballs. I like cold meatballs (made from my Best Meatloaf EVER recipe). Granola Balls (from Pinterest).

(Let’s just pause for a moment and tell ourselves all the ball jokes so I don’t get carpel tunnel syndrome typing them out. Ready? Okay.)

Diced ham, chicken, and cheese to eat with a fork – sandwiches get soggy and a picnick-y lunch is always fun for some reason. Raisins, homemade trail mix, flax crackers (gotta keep everyone regular,  you know), apple sauce, diced pears, and apple juice (ditto).

All neurotically packed in divided plastic containers.

Happy Trails, y’all! See you in St. Louis!

    Safe travels. Those are some impressive looking travel snacks. My snacks come directly from the packages, all thrown into a plastic shopping bag.

    How do you keep it all cold and how do you manage the mess/washing of containers when you get new places? I try to bring things and they become a soggy mess.

    Holy shit, woman!! Neurotic much? I dream of being that organised! For our 3 hour car trip I packed a box of (bought) muesli bars. No tupperware in sight.

    I hope there is NO whinging AT ALL. They would have their mouths stuffed full of food for at least 10 hours!
