we just came back from 8 days away and only ate two meals out (one breakfast and a seafood meal)

 

we are dealing with a 3 year old and we were at the beach and use a solar cooker,

 

besides that-    "non-cooked" items were -- homemade nut/fruit bars, nut butters on homemade bread and crackers, hummus, organic "lunch meats" and cheese, tuna and salmon canned, meat pie (beginning part of the week- homemade and wrapped in baked dough), avdacos, dried fruits, fresh fruits, fresh veggies, organic yogurts (small containers) and container with pineapple (natural juice)-these we bought

 

we avoid no foods- we don't have allergies but 90% of the time we "pack" our own food and only eat at places that we have researched prior- we DO avoid the things you mentioned and don't use a microwave

Thanks!  One thing that you usually see at restaurants are things like mozzerella sticks, chicken strips, etc, and I could never give that to DD!  I will for sure have her breakfast, snacks and lunch covered, but still dont know about dinner.  I dont have a ton of room to pack things.  I love organic lunch meat but it is so expensive here!  I have to order it from a town 250 miles away in bulk.  I dont even go there so a friend gets it for me.  Otherwise it is unaffordable for me:(

Anyway thanks for the tips!  Any other tips are welcome!

since you are only doing a weekend you might want to look into pickled eggs- they travel well and can be made into "egg salad" for sandwiches

scotch eggs also travel well

 

 

another good thing is to get an OLD "picnic cook book" - they have lots of ideas - one good thing to learn is how to pack a cooler- simply laying foil on the top and backing it in the center of your trunk with clothing around it (this insulated it) are really helpful things to know-IMO

 

if you have a heat source- soup can also travel well (freeze first and pack it frozen)

 

meats- can you make your own and slice? (chicken/turkey breast- roastbeef are all great cold-some people even like meatloaf-not us!)
