I am trying to think up some food. I don't mind doing some purchasing when I get there but a) I don't want to splurge on pre-made food, like a deli tray and b) the only grocery store there is really small so pickings are slim.
The car ride will be about 7 hours and we'll have a cooler. We are making the food Wednesday night, driving up Thursday, and stashing the food in someone's house until Friday afternoon.
What are some party-friendly foods that will survive this adventure?
