Road trips can often be costly, not only is the petrol price expensive, so is the food at service stations, restaurants and drive-thru’s. Try these recipes for the ultimate padkos food, it’s all neatly packed, no one argues about where he or she wants to eat and a bonus is that you can stop along the road and take in those scenic views.
Ensure you have enough ice packs and a proper cooler bag or box to store your food items. You don’t want to use a bag of ice as this will melt and potentially leak. Pack everyone’s food individually in containers and don’t forget the wet wipes. Have a bag for all your disposable items that you can throw out in the bin at the nearest service station to avoid an overload of clutter in your car.
Coffee and drinks
