Road food

November 4, 2008

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?
