Road Food

In my experience, road trip food is rarely exciting and almost never healthy. I've done my best to combat both these things but eating from grocery stores (parking lot picnics with bagels and cream cheese or granola and yohgurt have been popular), but I admit I've stopped at a few greasy spoons along the way. Even when I try to cook for myself over my hobo stove, I end up getting something out of a can or box. Not to say there is anything wrong with this, but it can get a bit old.

Enter the oven. For the past few days, I've been hanging out with a friend who lives in Hendeson, NV. Last night, we atteneded a get together so I could meet some of her friends. It was to be a pizza party. Rather than more take out food, I volunteered to engineer the pizza, as I consider pizza one of the 6 or 7 dishes in my repertoire. We did a BBQ chicken with onions and a breakfast sausage with green peppers, both with only cheddar cheese. (Yes, of course it was on homemade dough.) The BBQ chicken esp. was met with smiles and rubbed tummies. As for me, I was happy enough to eat a meal that came from more than one package.

Next on the culinary agenda: the casino buffett!

My favorite in my road-tripping days was the spaghetti sauce sandwich, which was just that, and maybe a little cheese if I felt like splurging. There was also the hobo-stove falafel tacos.....mmmmm. I think I need a road trip.

Poor? No stove? Climbing? Gotta go with a famous Myke Hall "Hueco Wrap". Fresh tortilla, peanut butter, and bananas. Roll it up and get ready to crank v3. Take that Darlene!

Gretch, I'll have you know that the sausage and chicken purchased for said pizzas were bought on May 1st, officially after the experiment in non-meat purchasing (although, since I know you are interested, the experiment didn't go so well.)

Yes, yes, I remember how well the pizza went at the last movie night. You didn't try to cook more than one at once again did you?
