Traveling with turkey, a scrumptious side dish, or dessert during the holiday season can be a risky proposition. Avoid spills in your car or your lap by heeding our tips for traveling with food this Thanksgiving.
Turkey or Ham
If you have been tasked with cooking a delicious turkey or ham for your family’s Thanksgiving get-together, kudos to you. That’s no easy task. However, don’t let a fast turn down a city street ruin all that work. Instead of attempting to keep it hot in a large dish that could easily spill, cook your turkey or ham the day before, slice it, and store it in smaller containers. Bring these containers to the party in a cooler and heat it up at your destination.
Don’t let your delicious sweet potato casserole overturn on your back seat. Instead, put a lid on the dish and place it in a laundry basket. Then, fill it with towels so the dish can’t move. As an added bonus, the towels will keep the casserole dish warm for your eager eaters.
Whether it’s pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie, or even peanut butter pie, your family and friends will be eager to try your dessert. Ensure it arrives safely by using an extra metal pie tin as a lid for your pie. Tape it on to protect the pie, and use tin foil to further seal the lid on.
Of course, the generally unspoken rule is to drive carefully – holidays are a busy travel time. Above all, if your vehicle needs some attention or just needs replaced, come visit us at Pischke Nissan.
