Contest Over - Kim Burton and Libby's Table-Gating Giveaway.

Contest Over - Kim Burton and Libby's Table-Gating Giveaway. Winner to be announced soon.

The Burton FamilyThe Burton Family
(Jeff, Paige, Harrison, & Kim)

While track fare can be fun and easy; it is not always the healthiest solution to lunch or dinner at the race track. Also feeding your family from the track vendors can be a family budget calamity.

That is why Kim Burton has teamed with Libby’s to “Encourage Families to Share their Winning Solutions for Getting Back to the Table.” They have launched, at select speedways and online, the Libby's Table-Gating Recipe Contest, a nationwide contest that will send five lucky finalists to New York City this September to compete in the Get Back to the Table month recipe cook-off judged by country superstar Sara Evans.

Moms and dads can submit their family's favorite tailgating recipes using Libby's Vegetables at the Libby's tent at the race tracks or online at GetBacktotheTable.com. A winner from each of the four tracks (Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Phoenix, Charlotte and Dover), as well as an online winner, will compete in the cook-off and the grand prize winner will receive a family trip to Daytona, Florida! The contest ends June 30, 2009.

To learn more about Libby's Vegetables' Get Back to the Table Tent at select race tracks this spring, families can log on to GetBacktotheTable.com. The site also features tips for saving time and money at the grocery store, tools for meal planning and an interactive recipe database of easy, delicious, budget-conscious recipes.

An Outdoor Living Tailgate Kit is a perfect accessory to help you get your family back to the table while enjoying the races. This tailgate kit tucks away neatly in your trunk, yet opens up to provide a world of on-the-go convenience and fun!

This handy tote features a 15 can insulated cooler compartment for drinks and food and a compact grill with spacious grilling surface that can cook 12 hot dogs at a time. You also get a stainless steel tool set including a turning fork, easy-grip tongs and oversized spatula with a built-in bottle opener. Tote also has reinforced base, padded handle and shoulder strap for easy carrying. 19" x 7-1/2" x 12-1/2". (ARV $79.99)

HI Z,

Most of our dinner meals on the go are drive thru. For breakfast it typically consists of frozen waffles/pancakes cooked at home and then eaten in the car.

disneyluv said...

Happy belated birthday Moses! Congrats on the success at the All American Speedway Race. : )

I have a small plug-in (to the cigarette lighter) fridge. Keep homemade lemonade and sandwich fixings there. Boy, does that save money on a road trip!

taterbug said...

Unfortunately, most of our 'meals on the go' consists of fast food. If we are going to be gone for an extended period of time, I make tuna salad, potato salad, etc., and put them in leak proof containers so I can add them to the cooler along with beverages. Then I carry bread, chips, and cookies along with the cooler.

Our meals on the go have gotten a lot better since I discovered My Family Dinners. I use these dinners that I have prepared and frozen for those nights when I don't have time to cook. What a help.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

if we are traveling i do take the sandwich maker and the crockpot for th hotel but also take string cheese and cold chicken salads and salad and dressing so it is not always bread although we do also take pbj

lorides said...

usually just cold cut sandwichs and fruit, boring
harborlad@optonline.net

Pat said...

We usually pack the fixings for sub sandwiches, potato salad, macaroni salad, chips and dip, fresh relish tray with ranch dip. It is the easiest way to feed the kids and ourselves. We usually have juice, soda, and iced tea to go with it.

rrshep said...

Our meals on the go are healthy snacks like homemade trail mix.

Fixins for subs, bag of cut veggies, and juice boxes, or if we have time to eat and in a rush I pullout leftovers in the seal a meal bags that I saved especially for quick meals

Sandra K321 said...

My son plays on a premiere soccer team as well as playing sports at school. Right now he and his brother are both on the school tennis team, jazz band, band, Leo club and who knows what else. So many nights we go straight from one event to another. I try to make meals ahead of time that can just be warmed up if they have time to eat at home or that can be packed up and eaten in the car on the way t the next activity.

huggr1960 said...

Cold boxes of veggies and veggie lunch "meat" fillings. That with some fresh homemade rolls....YUMMMMMMMM

Fangirl Jen said...

We pack lunches and meals from home when we eat on the go. Yes, sometimes we resort to fast food or restaurants too.

samf36 said...

Fresh veggies and fruit are the 1 st thing in the cooler, then cheese and crackers aqnd a homemade cookies or bars.

Meals on the go should be light, easy to prepare, and No mess!
Trail mix is a great filler for a short day trip, along with fresh fruit, and lots of liquids to stay hydrated.

SimplySavvy said...

We don't have many meals on the go yet because the kids are still young but the few we have are usually fast food b/c it is the only time they get their favorite treat of "fru-fries"

camper223 said...

We live 2400 miles from our older children and other family members.
So we drive the long trip, which means trying to get there as cheap as we can so I pack a lot of food to eat while making the trip. We stop at rest stops or eat in car.
Subs, beef jerkey, fruit, cheese, water, juice and tea. We also go to the beach when family visit which means lugging a lot of stuff so this prize would be so awesome for our long trip in june and the beach.

We drive find a decent resturant. When I was a child (way,way before expressways) my mom would pack some sandwiches and we would stop at one of the roadside picnic tables placed along the highway for that very purpose.

Pam said...

Meals on the go has always been a challenge for us. We're always tempted to go through a drive through and get fast food. We have tried to cut down on that by packing a cooler of drinks and fruit and cheese cubes and crackers to eat in the van. This set would help a lot with eating on the go!!

jodene said...

We pack lunches often in the summer months and it is usually, sandwiches, cheese and crackers, fruit, pringles, juices boxes and soda or depending on where we are going maybe a bottle of wine. If we are traveling for a long distance we usually bring peanut butter, a loaf of bread, fruit, trail mix and water - nothing that has to be kept cold. The only one that can really stand fast food is our daughter so that isn't an option.

Lee said...

With a daughter who plays travel softball we always find ourselves eating on the run. A cooler packed with cheese, pepperoni, crackers, fruit, salad, sandwiches or cold chicken is our summer staple while we are on the road. Cold drinks and a thermos of coffee are a must too!

Marianna said...

Sadly, most of our meals "on the go" consist of fast food or eating out. I'd really like to get more dedicated to saving our wallets and waistlines by keeping healthier/cheaper meals packed when we know we'll be away from home.

jrrnationpres said...

Lay a piece of ham flat,place asparagus,cream cheese on it wrap it up, make plenty cause these lil guy's are good. You can also use okra or pickles but we like the taste of asparagus the best. By the way my wife makes these not me.Take care,chow.

For meals on the go, we pack a cooler of things that are easy to eat and things we don't eat every day. I cut up a couple of kinds of cheese and several different kinds of lunch meat. We place these sorted into ziplock bags. I also take a couple of kinds of crackers to eat the cheese and lunch meat with. It keeps better than sandwiches and the kids like it better. We also take grapes, raisins, cheese sticks and some cookie. Over Christmas we traveled to see family (two days of driving one way). We managed to only have to eat out once a day while traveling so this saved us a lot of money.

For meals on the go I keep a "snack" cooler in the car filled with things that travel well and that don't need to be kept cold and then I add a cold pack and some sandwiches and drinks to that to round it out.

Bonnie in FL said...

I freeze water and juice in bottles ahead of time When placed inthe cooler they keep the food cold and when thawed are then ready to drink I pack cut up veggies and dip, whole wheat crackers with peanut butter, cubes of cheese and turkey and ham. These we takw to the beach, NASCAR and the parks that we visit

tutugirl said...

A lot of times, we have to eat on the go to attend basketball practice or swim. I wind up making pancakes and have a serving of fruit to go with it. My kids get a stack of pancakes with a little syrup on the plate. It's the one thing they all can agree on.

If it's just one meal and we're driving somewhere then it's fast food but that doesn't happen very often. If it's camping then my husband packs everything! No roughing it.

Mir said...

The best way of getting your family to the table is making it a habit. Sitting down as a family every night. I grew up like that and never ever even questioned it or thought about not doing it, even as a teen and no, I'm not old! :)
Putting good food on the table is a good way too of course.

Sad to say, most meals on the go are fast food. I wish we would pack more lunches.

For longer trips we pack a cooler with sandwiches and drinks and bring things like chips and snacks. If it's a short trip we usually stop at a fast food place.

Meals on the go tend to be fast food for us. My son has recently suggested that we start packing sandwiches and stuff for long trips, though, which is a great idea and goes back to how my family did it growing up.

I make food and have snacks on hand when we're on the go. It can be anything from fruit, veggies sandwiches to chicken and homemade pizza pockets :)

Meals on the go is usually fast food, but prefer the sandwich locations where you can pick 2, e.g., salad & 1/2 sandwich or soup & salad. When I do pack a cooler, I like the turkey and bread separate & make sandwiches when needed, along with raisins & almonds.

There are times when I have to call our boys to the table. But, since they're teenagers, they're usually asking when dinner will be ready, and they're ready and waiting.

Corn is my family's favorite vegetable, and Libby's corn is always sweet and crisp.

We usually just fix sandwiches and bring chips and veggies, when we eat on the go. I love the table-gating set. I think it would be great to take fishing with us. Thanks for having the contest!

I like to prepare as much as possible for healthy meals on the go such as to have baby carrots handy and cut fruits or vegetables. I also do individual servings of nuts and have on hand Kashi bars or individual portions of Bear Naked granola.

Our first meal on the go is sandwiches and fruit in the cooler. The rest of the meals are take out or fast food places. We always have a cooler of drinks and fruit.
