    Negative on cooking in the room or bringing food with us. We do that all week long home so our vacay is a break from many things. Cooking, cell phones, email, schedules, homework, kids activities, etc... What I will do is have Bully drop me off at supermarket so I can get somethings for the room. Snacks, cold cuts, bread, beverages. Mainly for the kids or when I wake up at 3am hungover and have the munchies. lol I do admit what you are bringing does sound very good! Nicely done on the effort you put in to that though!

    Andrea,
    We use a cooler like this, ours is Reel Legends but they do not have it any more at Bealls. We have 8lbs of Prime filets and stirips packed and ready, I put it in my carry on, we use the cooler everyday there and we pack it with Gouda to bring back home. We bring other provisions too.

    we have 2 of these (from bealls) http://www.beallsflorida.com/online/...c=onsitesearch

    we each have large rolling duffles and we each put one of the bells rolling coolers in along with our clothes etc..

    how coincidental is it that you have a bealls cooler too ?!

    We have not brought food from home nor have we cooked or ate in while on vacation. We will be staying in a timeshare this trip but it won't change anything as far as our eating routine goes. We do try to grab a couple of snacks for my son to munch on and always keep the leftovers for my son to eat. I myself don't do leftovers at home or away so I am consistent, lol. If I had the group that Andrea has I coming I would certainly have to consider other alternatives than dining out for every meal as that would get very expensive.

    yup jay
    with having a baby and a toddler it would be crazy thinking that we could go out every night.
    not so much the expense, just the hassle especially since they go to bed at 7 and are pretty cranky by 6 pm


    our plans during the first week when our kids aren't there include:
    Madam Janettes
    Hung Paradise
    The Restaurant at Tierra Del Sol
    Gostoco
    Italiana Terrazano @ Paradise Beach Villas

    with the family:
    Hung Paradise

    and Kevin and Becca alone while we babysit will go to The Restaurant at TDS or Madam Janettes

    Looks like you have it well planned out..... We both enjoy cooking at home and both love leftovers..... but not on vacation. DW is a lighter eater.... but we do 3 squares a day out while we're in Aruba.... Actually, breakfast has become just coffee and a banana on the beach. Lunch tends to be earlier so we can drink.... shouldn't drink with breakfast...!

    coffee and a banana are perfect in aruba and that is pretty much what we do here at home too.
    lunch in aruba is always something like cheese and crackers, fruit salad and a couple of frozen drinks

    we have been busy counting weight watcher points this last month so, as we know we will fall off the bandwagon in aruba in november....especially with the frozen sugary rum drinks

    I always food shop groceries for breakfast and lunches. I like to get up and make an omlette with gouda cheese, toast and enjoy coffee on the deck. For lunch a sandwich in the room with a ballashi or chill. If I get bored with the sandwiches, I buy a quesadilla at the islander grill for a change. Dinner I always go out except the first evening which is usually a take out Pizza.
    Back to Aruba in
