DH and I are planning a road trip next spring with our two kids and are trying to keep it budget and health friendly. In that effort, I'm planning on breakfast and dinner in the hotel room, and only lunches in restaurants, and I'm coming up with a menu that is easy to put together with minimal supplies. Your suggestions are welcome!
I currently have a few easy breakfasts in mind:
cereal with milk and fruit
instant oatmeal packets with milk and fruit
We'll have a cooler and possibly mini fridges in hotel rooms. I'm assuming that I can get access to microwaves at all of our hotels and use the microwave pot that I'm practicing meals in.
Lentil soup with salad and rolls (cooked ahead and frozen in quart sized bag; canned would work but we're watching the sodium level)
Pasta with tomato sauce and frozen meatballs, salad and rolls
Hummus, pita, falafels, veggies
Coconut curry tofu and veggies, rice
Chicken cacciatore, egg noodles, salad (cooked ahead and frozen in quart sized bag; reheated in microwave cooker)
What kind of things do you make with minimal supplies? Any suggestions for the hotel room gourmets among us?
