Transporting Christmas Dinner
December 22, 2013 5:45 PM Subscribe
I want to do a special day after Christmas dinner for myself and my boyfriend. The only thing is, I'll be in a car for 6-7 hours heading back from my parents' before I'll be back at my house. I'm looking for ideas for a festive meal that can be transported in a cooler for that long and will reheat well once I'm home, or be really tasty served cold.

The thing is though, It's going to essentially be my boyfriend's Christmas dinner, so I want something nice. I'm a pretty good cook (intermediate?), and I'm sure my mom will let me use her kitchen, but she is not the best cook, so supplies/access to appliances are limited. Still, I can get to a grocery store. I was originally thinking of something like lasagna or ziti, but I make those a lot. So instead of pasta, I feel like I want to prepare something more either creative or at least ...impressive.
I'm open to almost anything that will meet these requirements. I'm in Florida, so I have access to a lot of ingredients and supplies.
