Make Ahead Food for Vacation

Make Ahead Food for VacationWhen I go on vacation, I want to “cation” as my daughter calls it.  This past week we went to Ocean City, New Jersey with my sister and parents for a week.  We had a great beach house but wanted to make food ahead of time so we could enjoy at stroll on the boardwalk at night and buy dessert out.  Here is a list of the things we made of the week.  Hopefully this will be a good reminder for our menu next year as well as give you some ideas for your vacation meals.

Snacks-  Most of these things were made ahead of time and then stored in zip lock bags.

  • Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Nectarines
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Squares
  • Brownies (in cup cake cups)
  • Rice Cripsy Treats

Lunch or Dinners- Most of these things were made ahead of time and then stored in zip lock bags.

  • Pulled Chicken (make in crock pot), brown rice (in bag), and canned corn.
  • Hot Dogs and Beans
  • Meatballs, chips and pretzels,
  • Meatballs and spaghetti
  • Sliced roast beef, chips, pretzels, and fruit
  • Sliced ham with sides
  • Turkey meat tacos

I would love to know your menu for vacations too!
