What do you bring to eat?

In a condo, resort, hotel or any lodging?
Especially that first night after traveling and before going to a grocery store?

I am going to be stocking up on those Duncan Hines Mug Cake Mixes.
They come 4 mug cakes to a package and all you add is a little liquid, like water, milk, coffee or cola, and they are designed to be microwaved and ready in minutes.

Do you have any easy, minimal ingredients, but good treats to bring on vacation?

Betty Crocker has those mug cakes, too, called Mug Treats and they have a frosting or a glaze in the box to go on the mug cakes.

Sometimes I bake a pound cake ahead of time. It's good by itself or later with fruit and/or ice cream.

usually couple days before going we make up some chocolate chip cookies, get some potato chips I guess it's pringles the one in a can that won't be smashed when get there. normally take something to drink as well, 2 ltr cokes and such are a lot cheaper than vending machine drinks.

We love the Duncan Hines mug cakes.
I saw the Betty Crocker at Big Lots for only $1.50 a box. That was $3 wasted!
I bought the chocolate/peanut butter and another chocolate variety like a lava cake and compared to the Duncan, they were positively disgusting. The peanut butter burned my throat and tasted horrible. I didn't say anything so as not to influence DD when she tried the other variety and she didn't like it either.

Oh, gosh!
Thanks for letting us know.
I would have bought the Betty Crocker, too.

Sorry for the bad recommendation on the BC Mug Treats. DH had one and liked it but I don't remember which one he had.

Betty Crocker products are usually very good.
I love their Cherry Chip Cake Mix.

In regards to the DH Mug Cakes and the BC Mug Treats, it looks as though many grocery stores in this area are discontinuing them. I keep seeing both at low prices at Big Lots and other closeout stores.

Thanks for the heads up.
If I can find them discounted, I will stick up for future road trips.

I'll check at Big Lots for the Duncan Hines.
The local Walmart stores still have the Duncan Hines for $2.50 a box the last time I saw last week. Perhaps the flavors at Big Lots are certain ones that are poor sellers.

No Duncan Hines, except for the Mug Cakes frosting packs.

I've never tried the mug cakes - sounds interesting.

I buy Toll House cookies - in the refrigerator section - they are good while warm.
I take tea bags
Usually some fruit (grapes, berries, or watermelon) and / or chopped ready to eat veggies (cucumbers, carrots, cauliflower)

If I'm really ambitious, I will pack lunchmeats, cheese, eggs and tortillas - so we can have wraps, quesadillas, burritos and or omelets.

The Cake of Cakes (really)

OK, this is all going in the "ramekin" that you just placed on the counter.
1. 3 level tbsp of your favorite cake mix. I always use chocolate.
2. 2 tbsp of chocolate chips. You can use fewer chips if you like.
3 2 tbsp of cold water.
4. Stir like crazy until the mix is no longer dry.
5. Smooth it out just a bit.
6. In the microwave for 55 seconds--(more is not better)
7. Allow to cool for about 1 minute.
8. Now the fun part. You can eat it plain (it is great) or you can do what I do and cover it with some aerosol cupcake frosting or Tru Whip is good too. Pretty much anything you would put on a cake.

It's called the 55 second cake and it is delish.
