A big component of any outing is what food you choose to bring. You don’t want to bring anything too labor intensive (no one wants to spend a bunch of time prepping food), but you also want to bring good food that the whole family will enjoy—making the trip that much better. These recipes are a combination of both—they’re easy & taste great! Take a look and begin planning your meals and snacks!
