Question: Looking for a fun menu idea that doesn't require a lot of work. Details:?
Going on vacation to Mount Desert Island, ME this summer. It'll be a 7 hour drive to get there and we're staying on the "Quietside" of the island. Interpret that to mean few restaurants and no street lights. It's about a 40 minute ride to the other side of the island, the "Funside" but after all that driving I think we'll just want to chill out at the cottage the first night. I don't want to play vacation chef but there are VERY few restaurants on our side of the island and just about everything shuts down at 7pm.
Any ideas what we could do for dinner that first night? The only nearby pizza joint has iffy reviews or we'd just order in.


pack a cooler with snacks that you can have once you get to the cottage. eat at a restaurant on the way for your main big dinner before you get there. look on line for family dining with homecooked meals along your driving route.
i have traveled alot and always pack things like peanut butter, jelly, pretzels, celery and carrot sticks, apple slices, grapes, good munchies for eating and driving. and of course something to drink like water or juice.
buy your favorite brands before you leave, and take the staples with you like salt pepper paper towels. and baggies are very handy to have.
investing in a good cooler will make your trip there and home less expensive and more fun cause you can take a driving break at a rest stop and have a snack too.
have fun and be safe.

me, many days on the road.
