Recipes That Travel Well?
Ok, long story short.... On a tight budget, traveling to my parents across the country, going by bus then train....... We're trying to keep everything as low cost as possible as coming back in the U-Haul's going to be expensive. We don't want to eat too much on the train as it's overpriced and usually not that good anyways, and the bus up to the station is an 8 hour drive through convenience store crappyness. Anyone have any suggestions for a good, filling but not too heavy dish that travels well? We have a cooler, the slim upright kind made to go between car seats, and so far I have some pop, a loaf of bread, some turkey and roast beef slices, I'm going to put a baggy of ice in with the Amish butter. This should take care of most of it, but I'd like some 'real' food. I'm thinking some rice and chopped veggies and cold baked chicken pieces? Some cookies or biscuits? Mac and Cheese? I've never traveled with my own food before and I really don't know what'll go bad/taste funny/too heavy/too light.....This is something so simple yet it's driving me crazy.
