Noone mentioned grits?
Are there no self respecting Southerners on this forum.
I always bring grits from home because they are very hard to come by in Western Ski resort supermarkets. Don't get it...where does most of the corn come from? The Midwest.
Seriously and besides the grits...bring a pill container full of spices/herbs. That way, you don't have to buy the stuff at the store(you'll have enough for whatever meals you make) which costs a wad of money.
All the above are great reccomendations. I would like to add enchiladas and quesadillas to the mix of easy meals. We always do a chicken dish(chicken alfredo), so we have chicken left over from that meal and tortillas/cheese from the enchilada meal. Last nite dinner on the ski trip: Quesadillas! Voila!
I prefer Aleve, though. And for beer:stick to the local micro brews(where else can you get beer this good?) and get some Bailey's for the coffee. And tequila for marguaritas for quesadilla/enchilada nites.
We brought a plastic pitcher to the hot tub for our beer. Works like a charm. Doesn't get flat, because it goes quick.
