To somewhat help offset the cost of fuel we try to stop along the way to prepare a tasty sandwich in our Airstream and, depending on weather, we enjoy eating at our dinette with the door open. We sometimes alter the plan by stopping in for a Subway sandwich while fueling. This seems to make good sense for us and saves a bit of money for fuel over the long haul.
While in camp I enjoy anything prepared on the grille outdoors as it helps keep the trailer fresh and cooler in the warmer weather. Anything cooked outdoors seems better.
On occasion, we've been known to stop at Craker Barrel to enjoy a mid-day dinner followed by a simple supper in our trailer that evening. We do like the parking that the CB's provide.
Happy Trials Y'all.

We often watch for police cars. These folks live on the road, so to speak, and they're local. As they depend on restaurants for decent, but not super-expensive food, we figure they're a pretty good indicator. (Of course, they could be at a restaurant to bust somebody, but that's pretty easy to figure out.)

Yep, police cars and other first-responders, like rescue squads, firemen, etc.----we take those as a sign of good and reasonably priced food.

We like Subway, as well, and it has become a first choice when we don't feel like a sandwich from our own fixin's or are having leftovers for supper. . Good, fresh, inexpensive, low cal option. We frequently see firemen there picking up sacks of sandwiches, too.

If you balance it all out, it works well.

Hibby, I am teasing BruceB about where that tent came from (his doghouse). Best to wait for him to chime in on its origin.

Ha! I've been telling Bruce that I got it for the dogs but he keeps insisting that it's nice enough for him. So now it's so easy to put him where he belongs.

If you can't behave at the table you can finish your dinner in the tent.

First trip of the year, no salsa, no salt and pepper led to this great improvisation. Eggs with diced tomatoes, Colby cheese, pesto borrowed from previous nights linguini and pesto and a diced up leftover baked potato. kudos to DW! So good!

Salsa, eggs, cheese and potatoes are a great combo. We roast a lot of potatoes (olive oil, salt and pepper) and what a great way to use leftovers!

I pretty much never eat an egg unless it has picante sauce on it!
