    Default Help! Food to take on holiday...no idea.

    DH and I are going on a small 3 day vacation where we will be staying in a beach house. There is restaurants, a cafe, and BBQ facilities in the resort sort of thing we are staying at but we will need to take some of our own food.

    Each morning we are having the breakfast buffet so no need to worry about that, and we are taking meat for BBQs...but I need help with other stuff like for lunch etc just convenience foods. I was thinking those cup noodles...and thats all I have come up with lol. I'll take long life milk with us too.

    So any ideas on what else we could take for lunches and snacks etc?

    ETA- The kids are staying with nanna! This is our first getaway in almost 8 years!!

    Depending on the facilities available, we grab a few things from the "ready made" section of the supermarket near the deli/produce area

    Salad kits (caesar, thai beef etc)
    Indian
    Quiche

    For snacks, antipasto, cheeses, crackers, yoghurt, fruit.

    Enjoy your trip!

    If your having the buffet for breakfast and taking meat for dinner I would be taking cheese and biscuits and dips for lunch and salad for dinner. Then just grab fruit and chocolate for snacks for after dinner.

    If you're anything like me, after those big buffet breakfasts I am chockers!

    So for lunch, I would probably have light things on hand such as lot's of fruit, like grapes, watermelon, apples etc, bread rolls, cheeses (for cheese platters and salad items so I could make up salads and maybe add some tuna in them or eggs etc. Bags of chips for snacking.

    That's me after a chinese meal, it doesn't matter if I gorge myself on chinese, 1/2 an hour after eating it I am hungry again! I think it's the MSG or something!
