    Spring rolls are a great idea for a plane ride, never even thought of that. Even with the flying I have done, I never seem to pack my own food. I should. You are right, airplane food is terrible, and frankly dangerous too. The two worst cases of food poisoning I have seen were from airplane food.

    Great writing and photography as usual!

    what great ideas, and YUM! look forward to trying the spring rolls for lunch, even if the travel is only from the refrig back to my computer….

    Brilliant! If you were traveling longer, you could substitute baked tofu for the chicken.

    Definitely making these soon!

    I always hope to take food on plane rides, but never get past picking up granola bars, chips, etc. Really enjoyed your post and hope I do get my act together this year!

    first of all – loved those spring rolls when we went to SF! They were fantastic! And what great ideas about everything else! I always get hungry on planes (scratch that – when am I not hungry???) and I could totally just load up a bag with cheese… maybe a few cookies too!

    So THAT’S how you’re supposed to deal with those wrappers! The one and only time I tried it I ended up with something resembling library paste. Now I have to dig the package out from the back of the cabinet and give it another go.

    Gabrielle, the baked tofu idea is brilliant! Thanks for the protein/refrigeration solution!!!

    Nice work! Last year on our Xmas trip to Boston we stunk up the cabin with salami, mozzarella and artichoke hearts layered on pre-sliced ciabatta. Just remember, those ice packs are made with a gel-like substance, so they won’t let you bring them on the plane.

    Brilliant idea to have these as travel/road food! We’re usually packing candy and chips/crackers to munch during our long plane trips. Springrolls are a much better option!

    These would be great for ant lunch, not just for a road trip. Healthy too? Think these are going on the New Year Menu! Happy New Year!

    I take it this is not in America. Because in the States, outside foods are not allowed on board by security.
