Road Trippin’

As you may know, I travel quite a bit. I’m usually flying to my work or leisure destination; but this time I’m driving.

I’m heading to a friend’s wedding a few hours away; and I’m road tripping with a male friend of the groom….who I’ve never met before. Awkward? Possibly.  Someone who won’t mind if I fall asleep 20 minutes into the ride? Hopefully.

Because we’ve got a few hours to go and he’ll be doing most of the driving; I offered to pack us up some road snacks.

Keep in mind, I’ve never met this guy and have no idea of his eating style; so I tried to get a good mix.

The salty and sweet carbs: the good, the bad and the ugly
(but delicious)

  • Kashi Fire Roasted Veggie Crackers
  • Pretzels Crisps Tuscan Three Cheese
  • Pepperidge Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookies

Sugars and Proteins: essential for staying alert and keeping our mouths busy if the conversation wanes 🙂

  • Red grapes (and SELF magazine for me, natch)
  • Baby carrots
  • Apples
  • Larabars
  • Justin’s PB paks
  • Gummy Bears
  • Twizzlers
  • (Unpictured) Bevvies: Red Bull, Coke, Diet Coke, Waters

I think I’ve put together a good assortment; no chocolate or anything that needed to be refrigerated for obvious reasons. Hopefully I have enough “boy friendly” items. I’ve been told in the past by boyfriends and children  that I buy “terrible junk food”.  What can I say? My idea of junk food is champagne, cheese and crackers!

Stay tuned for a recap of THE DRIVE and the weddin’!
Have a great weekend everybody!

“On the road again…”

    Good job avoiding any “suggestive” snacks for the car…didn’t want any awkward moments passing the TOOTSIE ROLLS

    1. Good grief. We kept everything clean and above-board. There was a sticky moment with “grape-feeding” but we got through it.
