Thawed frozen burritos

Isn't a thawed frozen burrito just a burrito?

I think technically that is correct.

I dunno.  I think frozen burritos and frozen pizza are always called "frozen" even after being cooked.  I think its the law or something.

But are frozen pizzas really pizza? Or just a pizza-like substance?

 

Please see semi-annual pizza argument thread for further research......

20 years ago when I was working in Delaware we used to run up to Larue regularly.  I never tried a cheeseburger and now I regret it!

That's about the time I was there every other weekend or so. My good friends family had a couple cars and I helped in the pits keeping the cars ready between rounds. We had to race there because most legit tracks wont let an 18 year old kid run an 8 second car with all the safety equipment expired. We had a few good summers out there.

Peanut butter and jelly

Its got a lot of protein, some simple carbs and complex carbs. You wont have to worry about the ingredients spoiling if your cooler gets warm or they sit out a bit.

 

It took the third post for the right (and only) answer. This board is slipping.

Unless you are working on an extremely tight schedule, take the ingredients and make the sandwiches when you want to eat them. 12 years of school bag lunches mean I'd had all the four hour old sandwiches I want in my life, 42 years ago.

That's what I do when I have sandwiches in my work lunch. It's the only way, really.

Autocross food should inherently make your cardiologist unhappy

 

I've been a huge fan of braunschweiger and Swiss sandwiches.  Full of fat, iron, protein.  Eat two of these sandwiches and have energy for days.

My first rule of track food is try and not require refrigeration.  So PB&J was the go to. 

I've had ice packs in a $30 Home Depot cooler keep food cold enough for two day-events that it wasn't spoiled while noshing after day two.

I forgot the macaroni salad.  Great for those times when you need to inhale something but don't have time to make a sandwich.  Bonus points if it has feta cheese and spinach in it.

For a group that generally looks down on us roundy round folks there's a lot of sadness in this thread.  Racing is supposed to be fun, we bring along a guy that makes us chicken or meatball parm heros, pulled pork, grilled chicken, or cheesesteaks. On occasions he can't come I do slum it with whatever the track is serving but that thankfully doesn't happen often.

I know this thread was originally about track events, but frankly, at an all-day autocross, I'm never sitting still enough for long enough to eat anything bigger than a Lance cracker. I'm frankly astounded at the people who have time to eat a messy sandwich on site, let alone to insist on making them there.

Needs red onion slices, but that's not something I want to have to clean out of the defroster vents tomorrow.

Track events shut down at lunch time so that the corner workers can have a break.

It's been a few years since I went autocrossing, but we always had an hour or so down at lunchtime so that afternoon runners can do a course walk.

So, lunch was good! We had ham, bologna and cheese sandwiches on sweet Hawaiian burger buns. 

With lance crackers.

 

It was fantastic!

 

And prodarwin kicked my butt in my car.

More importantly, did you learn from him and get faster?

In reply to KyAllroad (Jeremy) (Forum Supporter) :

Codrivers generally win because they are slightly unfamiliar with the car, so they enter the corner a bit more timidly, so they can hit the apex properly and get on the power earlier, thereby kicking your overdriving ass.

At least that's how it works for me.

I think he did. He definitely drives different than Shaun did, and i learned a lot about going further to go faster watching him. 

He got fourth. I was, again,  dfl in class. But only by three seconds this time!

Can't go wrong with PBJ. Try peanut butter and hummus on bread for something different.

Turkey, swiss and chili dog mustard sandwiches are awesome as well.

Lunch was a win.  It tastes so much better when someone else makes it.  I'll bring the food next time.

Good event.  The car is a bit of a handful at first, but it has a lot of potential.  Sub optimal wheels and are keeping it from being super competivie however it's still a ton of fun to drive

First time I have autocrossed since 2012 (or maybe 11?) So I was a but rusty out of the gate.  It came back quickly though.

That is one of the things I like about Ohio rallycrosses... lunch is a super important affair.  There's usually burgers and hot dogs and a smorgasbord of veggies and stuff.
