MoFoing from the road.

I'm excited to be posting my first MoFo post from a Travelodge in Edinburgh, well I say Edinburgh but really I mean a hotel in a service station just outside the city!

As I said in my 'what I'm doing for MoFo' post yesterday today is my friends wedding hence the reason that my first post is a random jumble of travel snacks!

We left London at 8pm yesterday (after watching the 49ers play American Football at Wembley Stadium - my husband's a huge fan!) to begin our drive up north!

I packed plenty of snacks to keep us going.

Oatmeal raisin cookies from VCIYCJ by Isa & Terry.




Banana bread from 100 best vegan baking recipes by Kris Holechek, I love this recipe it always comes our super moist & delicious.




Linda McCartney sausage rolls....




...I always cut these in half to make them more fun, like a party sausage roll! My favourite juice.




And last but by no means least Travel Sausages...




...now it's no surprise to me that most of you are thinking "Travel sausage? What on earth is a travel sausage?!" Well these Vegi Deli sausages are ready to eat - no need for cooking or even heating - which makes them the perfect on-the-go snack.

After a much needed sleep we cobbled together a pretty decent breakfast.




Nick pretty much has to have cereal in the mornings so we brought some Doves Farm Organic chocolate stars & some mini Alpro soya milk's. I enjoyed banana bread, tinned pears, an apple sliced up & dipped in peanut butter & a satsuma. At the front you can see my favourite knife, it's awesome for traveling as it has a cover for the blade & it's super sharp.

Tomorrow I'll be posting pictures from the Scottish castle my friends are getting married in, our vegan wedding meal & maybe even a picture of me looking fancy in a dress.

Until then happy MoFoing!

  7. Road snacks are the best! I MUST have lots to munch on when I'm traveling. Food makes boring stretches of interstate more enjoyable.

  20. Canuck, it was just me! I've always called them travel sausages & called them that when talking to Kip & Holley one day, for some reason they found it massively funny & now they'll always be called travel sausages!

  21. Jojo! My apologies because I just knew I was following your blog until I ran across it in the mofo blogroll. So I added you!

    These travel snacks look GREAT! And now I will take sausage rolls with me on the road for sure.
