How to Prepare Quick and Easy Lunches on the Road
How many times have you been on a road trip and did not have time to stop to wait in a restaurant because you had miles ahead of you to go? Or, you were in the middle of nowhere and there were NO restaurants. Or you were in a National Park where a lunch for 4 people could easily cost $100 or more?
In summer 2021, my family sat on our folding chairs and ate lunch while we watch Old Faithful erupt. At least 4 passing families said "What a great idea! Why didn't we think of that?"
There is a simpler alternative! First, Bring disposable plates and utensils for quick and easy clean up. Then pplan these easy lunches!
Bring easy ready made or ready to make lunches:
- Peanut Butter and Jelly - Obviously popular with kids, it's easy to make in a few minutes and doesn't require refrigeration, so nothing is taking up space in your cooler. One tip: use the squeeze tube jam or jelly for no mess.
- Ham and Cheese sandwiches and potato chips - PB&J is not everyone's preference, obviously, but who doesn't like a ham and cheese sandwich. Grab some mustard packets at a fast food restaurant and you have an easy lunch.
