"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Do you have

 certain snacks you pick up for road trips?   We like to have saladitos and limon packs in the truck when we travel.

Nearly 25 years ago Bill introduced me to saladitos and limon packs.

I am not sure how readily available these items are the further north you go, but here along the border these are items are pretty much in every gas station and store.

We take apples, bananas, almonds, and boiled eggs... and eat them with discretion.

I have heard may reports about different ones of the limon type treats containing lead. But the other one sounds good.

I've never seen these before. Must be a more regional thing.

Fun to have these kinds of traditions!

Road trip food for us is and has been since I was very small. cheese and crackers. Generally either saltines or Ritz crackers then the cheese may either be longhorn, or sharp cheddar that we slice as we go and hand them around the car... or "squeezy cheese" in the cheddar variety that again.. gets put on the crackers and passed around the car. Bottles of water for each to wash them down and here we go.

Donna-I laughed about the discretion and the boiled eggs. They would be a no no if we travel with our sons. No way never in a confined space with the methane levels!!

JD- I haven't heard about the lead levels but rest assured I will research~thanks for sharing. Cheese and crackers sounds so simple, yet perfect!

Deanna-it is most likely a Mexican snack as we are along the border. I haven't spent a good deal of time up north so I am not sure where they stop...but traditions and trips are so basic and so special aren't they?

Never, ever heard of these, so been looking them up. Given the Hispanic population here, I might be able to find and try. Though, from what I gather, people either love or hate. Do you put the limon on the saladitos? Love you sis, Anna

Anna-the saladitos are salty so no we do not add more salt. I am betting you can locate thse or something like these from the descriptions of your area. <3 you too!
