We did it out of desperation one night and now it has become a regular quick overnight classic for cold winter travel nights.

Meatloaf is the swiss army knife of traveling food for us. Has many different possible uses for dinner and it makes good sandwiches for lunch. Plus it is real easy to make the night before you leave. Toss the ingredients into a mixing bowl, tear off a sheet of parchment to line the baking pan, shape the loaves, stick the temp probe into the loaf, set the oven temp and forget about it till it is done.
Okay, that explains it! Sorry for being dense. That sounds like a great meal. We may have to try it. Quick way to do the potato's etc!

Your response caused me to reread my recipe. I see that I missed putting a can or two of beef broth in as well. We don't use canned anything at home but the DW had what she calls rig bags which are repurposed store wine carriers loaded with canned/long shelf life food. I make fun of her "just in case packing" but they have come in handy a time or two. Don't tell her I said that.

Look to North African food for a quick and easy recipe where you can get all the ingredients from Walmart!

I've managed to cook frozen burritos (that were starting to thaw...) while rolling down the road... mostly, we pull over into a park, or rest area, crank up the generator for a few minutes so we can run the microwave. Mostly, we like to get out of the box and walk a bit... so picnic table finds are on the list, no matter what it is we eat. Almost anything else would be pretty risky to try to eat while driving besides a sandwich, burger, Hot dogs, or burrito type idea... you can do that for 2 days in a row. Bob likes that... because that's about the only time he gets cookies. They are good finger food too.

IMO stopping for 20 minutes at a rest stop to eat lunch is better than eating on the go. Taking the time for a stretch and a short relax will stand you in better stead than the few miles or minutes you can make while eating and driving.

Taking a short stop will make is seem like you are starting the trip fresh again.

It will be safer all round.

Yes, plus we will need to walk the dogs and some gas stations may not have a dog area.

I made a trip with a friend in Sept 2014 from Phx to Fresno and it was brutally hot. My wife made a big bowl of chicken salad and pasta salad. We packed some good bread and leaf lettuce. When we would stop for lunches, that cold chicken salad sandwich and cold pasta salad was a perfect and refreshing pause from such hot days of sitting in the fully windowed moho cockpit greenhouse. It is also very simple and quick to prepare that lunch when the salads are pre-made.

Lunch and supper are prety much as what we eat at home. I do like to eat out to sample the local spechials. Did you know Mcdonalds in Main has lobster rolls on their menue.

On all our long days of travel we always crock-pot a meal. This gives you either lunch or dinner depending on what your cooking. In our case we usually get a second meal for a day or so later. Best part is driving and having that wonderful smell in the coach, then as soon as we stop to unwind food is ready with nothing to due but serve it up. Wonderful way to go, simple and we feel most efficient too.

Like everyone we put it in the sink and cruise on down the road never been any problem. With so many crock-pot choices the meals are just like home, LOL we are home!

We typically have a number of quick reheat meals in the freezer. We purchased a vacuum seal machine that we keep in our sticks and bricks. When we have a trip planned, we start to make meals that we can take portions and seal them for use in the MH. Stuffed Green Peppers, lasagna, tuna casserole, Chili, or just about any type of crock pot dish that will reheat in the micro. Makes sitting down to a regular meal quick and easy after a day on the road. When we are in our destination, the grill comes out and then it is game on!

Yup, this is how I do it. I'm retired - which means two things:

1. I don't have to rush.

2. I need to really stretch about every hour.

I take a 10 minute break on roughly a one hour schedule, depending on where the stops are.

In the AM, I make up what I call "Roll-Ups". A few slices of best quality lunch meat and cheese, rolled up and pinned with a toothpick. I keep them in a small cooler with a few cold drinks that I can reach while driving. This way I can nibble on something healthy while I drive.

Wow, I never new McDonalds served lobster rolls! . . . . However, McDonalds would definitely NOT be on my list of places to stop to sample the local cuisine!

Just sayin'!
