What snack foods to bring to the beach? Will be bringing on PB&J sandwiches since I have no lunch meat and chips but I'm at a loss of what else to bring.

PB&J sandwiches are always a favorite of mine at the beach! I also like to bring fresh fruit (peaches, plums, oranges, berries), granola bars & crackers & pretzels :)

Grapes are great on a picnic.

I love raw veggies so red bell peppers, carrots, grape tomatoes, raw asparagus and mushrooms. I like the veggies plain but hummus kept on ice is also good.

The problem is my hubs won't really eat fruit or raw veggies. He might do the grapes though. I do have some hummus in the fridge. Hubs won't eat that either but I will :)

;-( Sorry your husband doesn't like fruits and veggies.

HMMM...we can get you fed, but your husband is a bit more challenging. I was going to suggest any sort of skinned fruit, as the sand and bugs would be challenged at feasting on your foods. Cheese does not require refridgeration, (just keep it out of direct sun), so that's a protein that your guy may appreciate. Likewise some sort of wheat cracker to go with the cheese, and being sort of impervious to the weather are worth a look. Smoked sausage, like garlic sausage, fully cooked ham sausage, salami and such can be pretty ant and weather proof, and might marry up with your cheese and crackers. Doing a potato salad that is vinegar passed, instead of mayo based will work, likewise, there are these things called "thermoses" that can transport heated edibles, like soups or baked beans or similar. AS horrifying as the suggestion may be, you could look at "canned" things, that could be opened and eaten straight out of the can (I'm thinking deviled ham spread, and shrimp or chicken) What you have for a "beach" and what I think of as a beach, or "shore" lunch are probably two very different things. At our cottage, starting a small fire with deadfall to heat up or cook is pretty common...dragging a grill around is pretty unthinkable, but a hibachi grill might be how you want to do this in the long term.

Cheese and crackers is a good idea with some summer sausage. I always have that snack on hand. And he does eat ravioli straight from the can. We had a hibachi but lost it in the move. I just bought myself a truck so we are trying to spend very little money which is why we are going to the beach instead of out on the town :)

Glad to have been the tiniest piece of "help" and jogging your memory a bit, as plainly this isn't your first rodeo! With a bit of luck, the temps here will get up into the 60's and we can start on our yard work...
