Road Trippin'

This week is coming to an end…I can feel it. I’m ready for the weekend!

My fighting breakfast actually held me all morning, so I guess war zones are beneficial sometimes.

Lunch today was an amalgamation of leftovers in the fridge and it was tasty.

I had some leftover whole  wheat pasta, some of my endless roasted cauliflower and broccoli (can you believe it’s still not gone?), and my leftover steak from the other night. I added a little soy ginger salad dressing, plus a few spears of asparagus.


Mm…I wish I had more pasta/steak leftovers so I could have this tomorrow, too! It was good and colorful with lots of textures and really filling.

I’m working on this orange right now – super juicy


If you can’t tell already, Nick and I are gone a lot on the weekends. My parents are about 6 hours from us, and his are only 2.5 hours. Needless to say, we get to visit them a lot, which we love.

The only thing I hate is the actual driving/riding in the car and having to pack/unpack, plus the rush once we get home and have no food in the house, etc.

The best things we try to do are:

  • pack the night before
  • make a list of everything we need
  • pack some snacks/drinks in the car for us so we don’t have to get anything at a gas station or fast food place unless we’re desperate
  • get gas/cash before we leave, if needed
  • try to make my grocery list/meal list for the next week during the weekend so I know exactly what I need when we get back

What are your best road trip tips?
