lots of recipes on line NEW

My husband has food allergies so much of the fast food that is out there makes him sick. I find good quality rolls and bread and then I vacuum seal lunch meat in his favorite varieties. Wal-mart has AWESOME Cajun turkey breast. I then put them in the freezer so they stay fresher longer in his cooler. I make pasta salad and pack that in a tall thin Tupperware that fits in his cooler or vacuum seal it. Cookies are a must and he has said many times how setting that big bin of cookies next to him on a long haul has helped him stay alert.
Homemade breads are wonderful too for breakfast or late night snack. He balked at me making them but ate them up like crazy. I make banana, apple cinnamon, carrot, spice, and other fruit breads. They keep fairly well in a cooler and pack easily. ALSO buy V8 in the 6 or 8 pack cans. They have veggie and fruit and it is a great way for them to get something healthy on the road. I bake my breads while he is gone and throw them in the freezer. The cookies my son and I cook his last day home so they are fresher.

homemade cookies NEW

Just one suggestion. It's become a thing now before my bf leaves out I send him with a batch of homemade cookies. I think any little thing that reminds them of home helps.
