Simple Summer Meals on the Run

Simple Summer Meals on the Run! www.cobornsblog.com

We’re getting into my favorite season of the year: lake season! For those who are lucky enough to live on the water year round, perhaps the excitement doesn’t overcome them quite like it does me. This is the time of year when my family gives up dusting and vacuuming for the summer, doesn’t invite company to visit our home, and perpetually leaves the suitcases out on the coffee tables in our family room – always in packing and unpacking mode throughout the week – all summer long until the new school year starts. When each Thursday night comes, we tuck the kids into bed, then load up the car so that at 5:00 on Friday, we can hit to the road!

During particularly hectic weeks, I order groceries for the weekend menu and a bag of ice from CobornsDelivers and have them deliver my order to my office. I meet them in the parking lot with a cooler in my trunk and voila! I’m all set for the weekend.

In order to survive the madness of constantly being on the go, we plan our weekend meals to be as simple as possible. Yes, sometimes we bring a box of cereal for breakfast or PB&Js for a boat ride, but we honestly eat pretty delicious food by simply planning smart. For instance, we don’t ever bring loaves of bread – they always get smooshed; instead we use pitas, tortillas or sandwich rounds. And there’s nothing wrong with the occasional meat/cheese/crackers combo or veggie tray on the boat if it’s too nice to come in to shore for a meal.

This year for Memorial Day weekend, here’s what we are bringing.

Friday Dinner – BLT Wraps & Grapes

Time- Saving Tip: Use precooked bacon.


Saturday Breakfast – Campfire Omelets & Sliced Watermelon

Simple Summer Meals on the Run - Campfire Omelets

Time- Saving Tip: At home, mix eggs, cooked sausage, chopped peppers and onions, milk and cheese and bring along in a Ziplock.


Saturday Lunch: Tacos in a Bag

Simple Summer Meals on the Run - Tacos in a Bag

Time- Saving Tip: At home, brown taco meat and simply reheat before filling chip bags. Have kids help chop olives, avocado, lettuce and tomatoes.


Saturday Dinner: Pie Iron Pizza Pockets, Lettuce Salad & S’mores

Time- Saving Tip: Use pizza sauce in a squeeze bottle and Deli Flats for the crust


Sunday Brunch: Campfire Oatmeal, Skewered Bacon & Cut Watermelon

Time- Saving Tip: At home, combine all the dry ingredients for the oatmeal and bring along in a Ziplock.


Sunday Lunch: Tabbouleh Salad in Pitas, Celery and Hummus

Simple Summer Meals on the Run - Tabbouleh Salad in Pitas

Time- Saving Tip: At home, prepare Tabbouleh – the longer it marinates, the better the flavor.


Sunday Dinner: Sausage Hobo Dinners, Jiffy Pop & Fruit Pies on the Fire

Simple Summer Meals on the Run - Sausage Hobo Dinners

Time- Saving Tip: If you’ve caught some fish, you can easily sub fish for the sausage.
Use biscuits in a tube for pie crust – simply flatten one out inside each pie iron side, then scoop in some pie filling and close them tightly before cooking on the fire.


Monday Breakfast: Cereal, Milk, Yogurt & Leftover Fruit


Monday Lunch: Leftovers!

It never hurts to resort to PB&J if you run out of leftovers; although, I’ve never once had that happen. Ever.


 

The key to all of this is to relax and go with however the weekend flows. You might have an impromptu potluck with neighbors or a rainstorm that sends you to a nearby restaurant. Or maybe you’ll get lucky like we once did and find a fantastic wild blueberry patch and eat an entire lunch of blueberries. Wherever your summer weekends take you, make some memories without having to spend your weekend in the kitchen!
