A versatile sandwich appeals to adults and kids alike.

The game plan: Stock a backpack with the essentials: bread knife, cutting board, and meaty Yin-Yang Sandwiches (recipe, below).

Complete the lunch by buying:

  • Carrot sticks and hummus
  • Potato chips
  • Juice boxes (for the kids) and bottled water (for the adults)
  • Ice cream from a truck
  • tip: To satisfy everyone on your outing, make a crusty hero with a split personality: ham and cheese on one half for the kids; the same, upgraded with salami and peppers, on the other half for the adults.
