    Default Meal ideas: to reheat....on a bbq

    I stuffed up. I book a room on the gold coast for a few nights this week for DD and !. But I looked at so many online I got mixed up and the room I booked doesn't have a kitchen or any cooking facilities (but it is right on the beach, as in we don't even have to cross a road ). So I have spent too much money on storage solutions this fortnight so I may have left myself a little short on spending money and as I won't be able to cook in the room I was thinking I may be able to take some meals that I have cooked myself and heat up (regular bbq fare would be the obvious choice but DD is such a fuss bum she wouldn't really eat it)....but the only facilities I would have access to is the bbq. I was thinking of taking some bbq sheets. Any suggestions on what I could cook to reheat? Do you think spaghetti bolognaise with the pasta already mixed in would work? Any other thoughts?

    DD won't eat creamy sauces.

    Does the room have a fridge? Mini bar type fridge even?
    Maybe do some salad plate type picnic meals for a couple of nights so you don't have to worry about the BBQ? Some salad greens, some ham or chicken, nice cheese, some cherry toms, potato salad, maybe some pre boiled eggs etc and fresh bread etc etc?

    I'd go with cold meats ( shop bought) salad, coleslaw, maybe some ready made pasta salad and crusty bread. If you have a fridge.

    What does your DD like to eat?
    Do you have a fridge?

    Little pizzas? Fish?
    So do you mean that you will be taking a whole heap of your DD's meals that you have pre cooked and frozen? How long will you be staying? If you have a fridge can't you make most meals for her fresh daily and cook them on the grill rather than reheat?

    The room has a bar fridge. DD eats cold meats but no salad of any kind....at all. So if I want to get vegetables into her it needs to be hidden in bolognaise or casserole and that sort of thing.

    She won't eat pizza (I know!!!). I would only take 2 nights woth of meals. We are staying for 3 and I will probably buy lunches and we will have breakfast in the room and have one bought dinner at the surf club.

    Well, a BBQ is basically just a hot plate so I don't see why you couldn't take a heavy based pot and re heat a spag or casserole.
