stocking the kitchen

We use paper plates ALWAYS; a handy tip is go to a "dollar store" and buy an arm load of different size plastic baskets. They are great for storage and organization in the cabinets. Don't use a trash can larger than a 5 gallon bucket; smaller bags are cheaper and because you fill it "often" you will get into the habit of taking it out the door when you leave. Make sure that you have a GOOD manual can opener for backup over your electric one. This may seem extreme, but when we bought our RV, we purchased an OEM replacement kitchen sink at the time. They are plastic, and one day while "on the road" if someone placed a hot pan, etc in the sink...you have a problem; it is stored under the bed in the front bedroom.

As you go on, you will learn and adapt...............

One thing we find very handy is a combination rice cooker/slow cooker. We can use it for many different meals and it easily stores under one of our bench seats. We also have a 2 gallon cooler beverage dispenser. We mix some crystal light for the kids and they are set on drinks without filling up the fridge or needing an ice chest full of soda. Like others have said we have real silverware and plastic plates, cups and even wine glasses, but use paper products a lot too. For spices I keep the minimum. I love to cook and have a large assortment at home. In the camper I try to to keep it simple. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and Tony Chacheries. With that I can cook almost anything I would want when on the road. I don't even try to be gourmet when camping. :-)
