As I have mentioned a million times, FI is from Montreal, so we try to visit once a month.
We are going again this long weekend, but want to cut costs by bringing our own food instead of stopping for food. Not only is it cheaper, but it also avoids that gross feeling of eating Mcds!
Anyone have any ideas that are adult/kid friendly?
I am thinking of sliced apples, cheese, kielbasa. Something that will count as our dinner. We are on the road from 4 till 9/10.

What about some predone salads? DH got some AMAZING seven grain salad from Rabba yesterday of all places! Some buns and cold meats? A baguette to go with your cheese? We’ve had some great raspberries lately.

Seven grains eh… that sounds yummy! We have a rabbas right by my daughter’s school. I am going to take a look!
And FI and our daughter LOVE raspberries I will take a look! Thanks!

Grapes are a good snack-as-you-go food. We always packed those on road trips. Healthy granola bars are also a good option.

Crackers/pretzels, grapes, carrot and/or celery sticks, and maybe some dried jerky for protein.

My sister and I did a road trip from Fl. to Colorado after I graduated from high school. We survived on PB&J and trail mix when we didn’t want to stop for food.

CHEEZ-ITZ!!!! I prefer the reduced-fat kind, they’re more crackery and less greasy – perfect for being in the car. And, Cheez-Itz and raisins (or other dried fruit) are really good together. It’s like eating cheese and grapes with wine only more ghetto and kid appropriate.
Trail mix of course, and granola bars.

Whenever we go on roadtrips, we take lunch meat, bread, salad (seperated), popcorn already popped, bagels, cream cheese, string cheese, and I really like those individual ranch dips for lunches with veggies. Weve also taken lunchables before 🙂

I’m with Tinkerbee – I love packing sandwiches (but I usually pack everything separately and make them on the road to avoid sogginess).

What about sandwiches and salads for a lighter meal and for snacks you can have fruit, sliced veggies, cookies, etc? And then when you get to Montreal you have delish Montreal bagels! MMMMMMMM!
