On vacation it can be difficult to eat the way you normally do. Especially when there are different views as to what makes good vacation food. In my case, I eat salad every day. At every meal, if possible. It is a little harder on vacation depending on the accommodation's facilities. It turns out this time that rather than the mini-refrigerator/coffee pot we were told to expect in our unit, we have a mini-refrigerator, coffee pot for herb tea, a microwave, some base cabinets and a sink in a nice counter. Things are looking up! I had brought our Instant Pot, because I assumed somewhere in the room there would a surface with an electrical outlet so we could at least heat up soup or something.
So, today I am hoping to go to a grocery store to find:
Lacinato (i.e. dinosaur) kale
Canned red beans
Something for Dear One to eat, either in the Instant Pot or the microwave if he wants hot food.
Another thing I am thinking is to get:
Canned chick peas
Lemon or lime juice
Roasted red peppers
A large bowl at Dollar Tree or some such place
The idea for this last list is to see if I can make some Avocado Roasted Pepper Hummus. Maybe.
If anyone has had any luck with different "vacation foods" in a unit without full cooking equipment, I would love to know what you made and how it turned out. Oh, and if the family liked it, too!
