Shopping list for a getaway in the countryside with friends

With the arrival of the warm weather, it's the perfect time to organise that long-awaited getaway with friends to a campsite or a country house. It’s important to plan and organise all the ins and outs of the trip in advance, and a shopping list with all the food and drink you need to bring is a good place to start. Moreover, it’s often a contentious aspect of the plan, especially when there are quite a few people participating in the getaway, as everyone has their own tastes and preferences.

You should plan your lunches and dinners well and pay attention to the ingredients you need to buy so that you don't go over the budget. This way, you can just enjoy your relaxing stay without having to worry about the shopping list.

Easy recipes for lunches and dinners with friends

To cook simple and easy lunches and dinners on your trips, you can prepare everything from original themed dinners to popular dishes that everyone will love. These suggestions are great for sharing with friends.

A classic Mexican dinner is a safe bet. Who doesn't like typical recipes such as burritos, fajitas, enchiladas and quesadillas? You can serve the nachos with different sauces or with minced meat and grilled cheese on top.

Another suggestion is homemade pizzas, which are also easy to make. All you have to do is buy the toppings and add them to the base. You can choose each person’s favourite and make a large version, or try different versions by making several smaller ones.

If the weather is good for outdoor dining, barbecues never fail. There are so many recipes you can cook on the grill with meat, fish, vegetables and even fruit. You have no excuse for not having a barbecue, even if your group of friends has many different tastes.

Group breakfast ideas

For the most important meal of the day, there is no shortage of recipes that can be prepared. Choose wisely, as it’s the food that should provide the most energy.

A classic continental breakfast never fails, with different drink options such as coffee, juice, milk and tea accompanied by two sweet and one savoury item. There is something for everyone, such as a mini sandwich with tomato and Iberian ham or a mini salmon sandwich with cream cheese along with a seasonal fruit, a croissant, a chocolate palm or a doughnut.

If you prefer to follow the latest trends, you can opt for a brunch, consisting of five dishes in total with both sweet and savoury options, always served with coffee, juice, milk or tea. For sweets, we recommend yoghurt with muesli and berries, seasonal fruit, sponge cakes or doughnuts. For savoury options, you can prepare ham and cheese toasts, avocado and salmon, mini sandwiches or mini croissants, among many other options.
