Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to drive to Thanksgiving dinner at a relative’s place with all those hot foods in the backseat? We’ve come up with some tricks for safely transporting holiday food to make your drive as easy and stress-free as possible.
Different dishes require different methods. A great way to transport casseroles, if you have the room in your car, is to put them inside a short, wide laundry basket on top of some towels to keep it from sliding around. While you’re at it, invest in a travel casserole dish.
Heavy things like dishes filled with food and especially slow cookers need to be strapped down in the car or in your cargo area, since in the event of a crash they can do serious damage to you and your passengers.
Pies are a popular holiday dish, and they’re easily transported when you flip a metal pie tin over and use it as a lid for your pie. And if you can put things in aluminum or wrap them in plastic wrap, do it! Reduce your risk of projectiles in the event of a crash.
