OC Picnic/Box Lunch type meals

SouthOCHound | Feb 13, 200604:49 PM

With the bloated and overmarketed Valentines Day holiday tomorrow Mrs. SouthOCHound and I have continued our boycott of the bad service and crappy food on V-Day. Ordinarily we just stay home and have a nice dinner the following weekend. This year,I decided to take her for a picnic at the beach. I'm keeping it simple so I don't need anything to extravagant. Does anyone have any ideas for some kind of takeout that I can bring along? I suppose I could always grab something on the way home from just about anywhere, but keeping the food warm is a concern b/c I have to traverse the county to get home and then to the beach. Really I was thinking about keeping it simple like sandwhiches [maybe from Zov's?] or something that doesn't need to be kept warm. I've sapped all of my creative juices thinking about her V-day gift and am drawing a blank besides the sandwhich idea. Any input is appreciated. BTW, I work in Orange and live in S. County, and was thinking about going out at lunchtime to grab something. I can drive if necessary, but something too out of the way is not a viable option. Thanks again hounds!
