Italy Road Trip 2013 – Food Supply!
We spent a wonderful week in Italy recently and as always before a long trip on the road, we have prepared our own “food supply”. As we are traveling at night we are eating definitely less than we would during the day, however it is better to have more, than less, you may never know how long the trip will be – anything unexpected can happen, car issues, traffic jam, etc… So this is what we took 🙂
Let’s see what is under the lids:
Now you will notice lots of sweet stuff, that is a must when you want to stay awake while driving at night 🙂 We tried to compensate with a decent amount of fruit though.
Fried chicken breast sandwiches with pickled gherkins! In home-made bread of course, these are a staple for road trips at our home. I cut the gherkins and pack them in a separate plastic box until we are ready to eat them, so as not to wet the sandwiches:
Home-made palmeritas! Cooled and wrapped in a plastic bag:
And some other sweet snacks 🙂
Melon and pineapple chunks squeezed into plastic boxes (plastic forks are a good idea to take as well):
We pack all the fruits, gherkins and chocolate in a freezer box, as well as enough drinks for 2 for a day (1 bottle of water and 1 bottle of home-made tea frozen before the trip to keep cool for longer, 1 bottle of water only refrigerated so we can actually drink something at the beginning of the journey as well 🙂 Also a bunch of energy drinks (very unhealthy, I know, but helps keep those eyes open):
All this was perfectly enough for our trip, also we actually didn’t even touch the sweet stuff 😉
When is the next trip coming???? Can’t wait to pack that freezer box again : ))
