Two weeks of family time in a Subaru
My son leads a charmed life - travel sports, neighborhood friends, doting grandparents, and a mom and dad who like to travel. For much of his eleven years, our family trips have consisted of flights to vacation hot spots and the occasional tent trailer camping trip. He's really never experienced (that he can remember) the summer road trip like I did as a kid. You know the sort, everyone piles into the car for hours and hours of driving and license plate bingo, bickering and roadside attractions.
Gluten-free road trip snacks and portable meals
This year is his year. He doesn't have a sibling to bicker with and license plate bingo has been replaced with his Kindle and hours of downloaded media, but we do have a cooler full of snacks and many miles to log. I can't wait to see some new scenery.
Eating out on the road can take a lot of time and put a strain on the travel budget so I tried to pack a couple portable meals for picnicking at rest stops or parks along the way. For the first evening of driving I made wraps for the guys and a sandwich for me using gluten-free Schar bread, which is my new favorite packaged bread. I also found some awesome pickle pouches that are gluten-free and single-serve SmartPop. For day 2 of driving I made salads in Mason jars. I got that one from Pinterest. The salads actually served a couple purposes;
Today is a lot of pavement and driving but lots of good stuff ahead.
Are we there yet?
