Lunch on the Beach

This morning in 2 different email boxes I received updates from 4 different hotel chains on my account balance, reward points and special offers. They really know when to send them as I sit here and stare out my window at the snow dusted roofs and know that even though the sun is out, it's a balmy (eh!) 18 degree's out there! Right now you can get awesome deals at hotels all over the country from a free stay at hotels to special packages. Well, it worked. Our family is indeed planning a quick vacation later this month and I'm in the process of working up our menu and grocery list as we have a full sized kitchen in our room, complete with dishes, pots, pans - even mixing bowls and a hand mixer.

We've been going to the same hotel/resort for 15 years now so we have a certain schedule down, which includes going grocery shopping the first night we arrive. There are also certain foods we are sure to make; one of which are are huge hit and favorite - but oh so simple - sub sandwiches! We plan these for our first 'full' day at the beach. Frozen water bottles, sandwiches and chips make a quick and easy meal and since I wrap each sandwich individually they are cold and fresh and best of all? Just what each family member likes!

Sandwich Buns
turkey
ham
salami
american cheese
provolone cheese
swiss cheese
mustard
mayo
dressings - (Italian, ranch, etc.)
onions
lettuce
green peppers
tomatoes

Whatever your family likes! Make the sandwiches and wrap tightly in saran wrap. Using a Sharpie marker write on the outside which sandwich is which; ham and swiss with mayo, turkey bacon ranch, ham and american... and then pack in a cooler with frozen water bottles and fruit, etc. The water bottles will slowly thaw while you enjoy the beach and by the time 12:30 comes around the water will be ready to drink, the sandwiches cold and the fruit, delicious!



The little dots are sesame seeds of the buns... LOL.
