This week we are in the Outerbanks for vacation and our first day of vacation happened to land on JPS’ birthday. Unfortunately most of his actual birthday was spent in the car from NJ to NC but we had a birthday breakfast and a nautical themed snack bar!
fish & chips – potato chips
fishing bait – gummy worms
crab legs – pretzel sticks
seaweed – sour punch straws
Because traveling with food can be beastly I tried to think of some simple things that could be made ahead and travel easily. I baked sugar cookies, decorated them and froze them a couple of weeks ago. I transported them in a cooler so the icing wouldn’t heat in the sun and smudge. I also made glazed donut muffins and added the sweetest anchors to them.
