Lunchtime on a road trip will find you in 1 of 2 places.  That’s right.  You’re either at camp, or…somewhere else.  If that ‘somewhere else’ ends up being on the road between stops, then this is the place to start for deciding on menus that work in your vehicle, on your tailgate or while picnicking ‘somewhere else’.

While we all have different ideas about how we like to picnic, one thing I have learned is that it’s best not to try and prepare lunch while driving.  Eddie doesn’t like to talk about it, but I have the mustard stains to  prove it.

Eddie and I often eat on the road (having stopped of course), and one thing that comes in very handy is our small cooler that plugs into the truck’s cigarette lighter.  I pack what we’ll need for our lunch in the morning, and keep it plugged in until we stop.  I make sure to include disposable plates, silverware, napkins and a drink to share. We keep our water bottles handy in the front seat, so sometimes we’ll share a soda or a tea for a little variety.

One other thing that has really been handy is to pre-plan your meals a day or 2 ahead.  That way you can utilize supper leftovers for a picnic lunch the next day.
Okay!  To get started with ideas for picnic lunches on the road, we’ll look at 7 different meal options 

1). Meat (any cooked variety or Tuna) & Cheese Sandwiches, Chips (I like the small individual bags), Fruit & Drink

2). Peanut Butter & Jelly / Honey Sandwiches, Chips, Fruit & DrinkLunch on the road

3). Taco Salad (I use leftover meat from tacos), Fritos or Corn Chips, Fruit & Drink

4). Ham & Cheese Roll ups (I save some ham steak pieces from dinner and use them in the tortilla), Fruit & Drink

5). Asian Noodle Jars, Pita Chips, Fruit & Drink

6). Mexican Coleslaw with cold Pulled Pork (leftover from the night before), Tortillas, Fruit & Drink

7). Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps, (with leftover chicken from the night before), Pita Chips, Fruit & Drink

So, get creative with picnic lunches for your next road trip!  Have fun…drive safe.
