This recent post on the Fresh from the Oven blog got my attention. After reading about how Mandy bakes banana bread for her own and her friends’ road trips, I realized that perhaps one of the reasons I don’t like road trips is because we don’t have any ritual foods associated with car travel. We usually grab coffee and gas and head out on the road. If I pack a few apples or oranges, I’m having a good day. Anything else we need, we buy along the way. Usually that stuff is disappointingly bad.
What about you? Do you have special road trip foods? Do you pack a picnic lunch or deal with the horror that is roadside fast food?
