I was researching beach food this weekend before I set up camp in sunny Malibu beach and was disappointed with what I found. It seems most people see beach food as an excuse to make shimp kabobs and elaborate yogurty fruit salads. That's just impractical.. When I pack for the beach I grab a towel, some magazines, and a big bottle of water. I can't be bottered to tote a grill, charcoal, lighter fluid, matches, raw meat, grilling utencils, seasoning, a cooler, ice, tupperware with cut fruit, etc.. Calm down people, it's just an afternoon laying on a sandy towel.. it's not you last meal or a P. Diddy beach event. Keep it simple.. Bloghungry suggests making or picking up quick a sandwich before you get there.
Bloghungry Beach Sandwich Guidelines:
1. Pick a simple deli meat or roasted veggie mix that isn't covered in a sauce that would make your bread soggy and gross if it has to sit in a backpack all morning. 2. Don't bring anything that will wilt or turn on you when warm. 3. Add fresh ingriedients that can stand up to the heat like: tomato, avacodo, pickles, peppers, or onion.
