Traveling for a lacrosse tournament -
Last night - ham & cheese & spinach on canyon bakehouse San Juan bread and black pepper potato chips in the seats. Later Pinot noir , dark choc and Parmesan crisps from WF.

Tonight - chicken taco salads while watching. A Go Picnic for lunch. Breakfast - 2 hard boiled eggs and strawberries. Snacks - chips, Carmel corn, grapes, hummus with pretzel sticks.



Thought it might help someone to see how to eat and travel. Didn't know this motel had microwaves and fridges or I might have done something different.

 Good stuff, K!! and good luck at the tournament! 

:)

I thought that the Udi's bread traveled surprisingly well for us last month. Did not get stale, I kept it in the fridge.

On the road is "do-able" now.

The Jif on -the- go cups, crunchmaster crackers, apples and celery sticks worked well.

Some Chobani cups and bananas for breakfast.

The Koolatron cooler in the car really helped (as did the fridge and micros in the motels). But if you find yourself stuck w/o those, it can still be done.

One hotel gave us a "welcome bag" in the room. It had bottled water, M and Ms , a granola bar and cheezits in it.

I ate the M and Ms. :) Hubs ate the granola bar (and we left the cheezits behind with a little thank you note to the manager).

When I review hotels on Trip Advisor, I keep saying the "free breakfasts" are great for traveling families, and I add nicely, but I cannot partake as I have Celiac, so I appreciate the fridges and the micros in the rooms so I can carry and store my own food..

Two managers wrote a reply" "we're hearing more about gluten free options and we're working on this".

That would be nice. Not sure they make small boxes of gluten-free Chex, however (J likes those!) ....LOL

Some of us have actually plotted to go up and kidnap her and make her the queen of our G F cult. so we can

live happily ever after, eating ourselves silly. It's just that none us really want to trudge through all that damn snow.

 

I think she is actually onto our plot, which is the reason she lives up in all that snow. Mere self preservation. She'll leave as soon as the snow is gone, flying away like a little bird, out of our reach for the summer.

 

I have my beef macaroni, which I swear isn't a casserole in the fridge that I can have for dinner. I have no idea what my husband will eat. I suppose I'll figure something out. I just sort of did a fly by night thing with the "recipe" and everything turned out great. Next time though I think I'll put a bunch of vegetables in it since my husband won't eat it anyway. I had a zucchini in the house, not sure why I didn't just cut it up and add it other than not thinking of it at the time.

Perhaps you can kidnap her at the airport on the way back from Croatia??? (let her have her holiday first, she will need to rest up before cooking for this greedy bunch :D )

  Yes, of course, we should give the poor girl some SUNSHINE and restorative rest.

 

 

Going old school/retro tonight for dinner:

 

Meatloaf 

Baked potatoes

Swiss chard

 

Might have a bit of vanilla ice cream.

 

That's  a Sunday night thing in our house since I was a wee one.

It used to be a "Sundaes on Sunday" tradition  with my Daddy --we are a family of ice cream whackos and

fortunately, I married an ice cream lover , too ! we make our own sometimes--and it carried over to just a few years ago. Those can make one a tad chubby. :unsure:   and my thighs think I do not need a sundae right now.

So, if I see a group of starved-looking greedy celiacs at the airport with ski masks and nylon stockings pulled tightly over their faces I will know what to expect.  Don't forget the black sedan getaway vehicle.  And don't forget to look inconspicious!  If not, I just might figure it out!  :lol:        :ph34r:

Someone finally picked up on that!  I was wondering when someone would figure it out.  Leave it to Addy.  :P

I love Za'atar, Dukkah, etc.  Middle Eastern cooking is one of my favourites - I have tons of superb books and I do a lot of experimenting.  :)

Middle eastern inspired chicken cooked with Zaatar (a middle eastern spice mix), purple potato fries. Yummy!

I know the plate is missing veggies, but we started off with a kale soup made with homemade chicken broth, so I can be forgiven!

CP,  you're still new here, so you are just beginning to see what she can do.

 

Our Love2 ...oh, she does not just "cook", nay,......she weaves magic!

 

She makes a plate talk and say "thank you, thank you, thank you".

She makes people drool uncontrollably on their laptops. 

Legend has it that she once caused a mass migration of nomadic people to walk through 3 feet of snow, following the wispy curl of heavenly aromas right to her doorstep.

oh no, no no......She does not just "cook".

 

She's a culinary goddess and we are merely her "wannabees".

:lol:

 

Some of us have actually plotted to go up and kidnap her and make her the queen of our G F cult. so we can

live happily ever after, eating ourselves silly. It's just that none us really want to trudge through all that damn snow.

 

Oh, Irish.  You are making me look so good!  But I DO love to cook and weave magic, my pretty.  :lol:
