Food & Beverages

    • Meat and veggies to grill. Consider marinating them before you head to the beach. And to make grilling even easier make skewers up and place them in a Ziplock bag the marinade.
    • Side salads. Macaroni/pasta salad, garden, potato, coleslaw, couscous, rice and beans, and tomato & cucumber are always winners. If you have the time you could also make up some fresh rice wrapper spring rolls.
    • Other sides and appetizers. Raw veggie platter with dip, taco dip and tortilla chips, fruit platter, pita chips and hummus, pickles, cheese, and crackers. Consider extras to add to the main meal – peppers and onions, sliced onion, sliced tomatoes, bacon toppers, blue cheese, sliced cheese.
    • Rolls. Hamburger, hotdog, or pitas.
    • Condiments. Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, hot sauces. Also, salt, pepper, steak seasoning, garlic salt, Cajun, etc.
    • Beverages. Water (lots of it), soft drinks, juices, wine, beer, mixed drinks and remember the ice! Also remember to cut up any drink extras like lemons, limes, and fruit.
