Road Trip Snacks!
I absolutely LOVE any kind of road trips. Even if it’s just a 2 hour drive to see my sister or dad in PA, because it means I have the excuse to pack goodies for the drive! I don’t know why I get all excited about packing lunches and snacks, I just do. Can’t imagine how I’ll be when I have kids, haha. It’s nostalgie I guess from when I was a kid going on vacations. We never stopped to get fast food….come to think of it, we barely ever stopped unless it was an absolute needed bathroom break! Our vacations consisted of long drives down to the beaches in the Outer Banks, NC – around a 12 hour drive, but my dad loved these long drives- listening to the B 52′s and the Beach Boys! …….”LOVE SHACK!!”
So my mom always made us different kinds of sandwiches for everyone, Peanut-Butter & Jelly, Ham & Cheese, Turkey & Cheese, Banana & Mayo – (yep, the banana one sounds gross but was and is still my favorite!). And of course tons of Lil’ Debbie’s and chips and juices, then packed it all in a giant blue cooler that lasted the whole trip. It was something my brother, sister and I always looked forward to….”What’s in the big blue cooler this time?!” An awaited little surprise during a horribly long drive.
Dan and I are driving down to Ocean City, MD this weekend…early start at 4:30am! It’s one of my best friends birthday’s and I actually used to live down there with her for a summer after high school about 10 years ago in the tiniest apartment ever, along with her cousin Autumn. It’s going to be a blast, I haven’t been down there since.
