Christmas in the rig

We leave our home base in Reno in 9 days (and counting) for Casa Grande AZ where we will be until late March early April.

I have some ideas of my own for Xmas dinner but wondering what others that are in their rig over the next holiday after Thanksgiving have in mind?

Most of the time we were in a park with a clubhouse and they sponsored Christmas dinner. The park or volunteers baked the turkey/ham and everyone brought something. It was nice to be surrounded by RVers who have things in common.


On other occasions we baked a turkey breast with the trimmings. We enjoyed being around others though.

With us having the empty nest, with my brother in tow, we go to one of the Station Casinos early for their Thanksgiving or Christmas buffet. For just she and I, the following day we will pick up a small pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from one of the local grocery stores, add small amounts of what we call the traditional fixings and best of all, her homemade stuffing. If all goes well with the sale of the house, we may be on the road during Christmas, and our plans are for our for doing the chicken and dressing.

We do not eat at pot lucks. All it takes is getting ill once and it will put you off pot lucks forever. We always cook our holiday meals at the RV.

We cook a transitional Thanksgiving meal of turkey (on the smoker), green bean casserole, oyster stuffing, home made cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and pecan pie. I try not to get too carried away so we only have leftovers for a couple of days. For Christmas, we are cooking a prime rib on the smoker and will probably have steamed broccoli for me and brussel sprouts for the hubby. Maybe even a baked sweet potato and some sort of dessert. I love holiday cooking even in the RV. We have been full timers for over 6 years and still look forward to home cooked holiday meals.

Was it 3 years ago there was a big potluck and about a dozen people were taken to the hospital? It was on all the TV news segments for 3-4 days.

There's a thousand ways to die... I think I've worked my way thru about 840 of them & I'm feeling pretty good about it but sooner or later your number comes up. Might as well enjoy a good meal until then.

A dozen people got ill in Palm Beach a few years ago eating at a high end restaurant. That's not gonna keep me from eating at Berns Steakhouse in Tampa.

Pot luck! Yummy!

Seems To Me A Great Oportunity To Make Up Your Own Tradition!!!. If You Have Always Been In Cold Weather, And Now You Are In Tropic Temps, Bar-B-Que Steaks. Or Steamed Shrimp, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!!!...
Sorry, But That's Me, We Are The Same AS You, This Is Our First Christmas & New Year In Our RV, so I'm Thinking Steamed Shrimp & Snow Crabs (EXTRA HEAVY ON THE OLE BAY) Humm, The Most Important Thing Is You Both Have "FUN"!!!...
And The Less Dishes To Wash, THE BETTER!!!...
Let Me Wish You An Early Merry Christmas...

This is a little late but file it away for next Christmas. From Walmart, we bought a frozen turkey breast you cook in a bag provided with it. We cooked it in our crock pot. Fixed Marie Calendar frozen scalloped potatoes in microwave and fresh green beans. It was easy and all very tasty. Of course, not like when we are at home with a big group and we fix everything from scratch.have eaten turkey sandwiches the past two nights. Yum!

We had a small prime rib roast cooked in Nuwave oven- yum! Roasted root vegs in the convection oven, a green salad and rolls. For dessert I made our favorite pie, lemon ice box. It was all very good and special for Christmas. Thanksgiving was traditional with turkey breast, homemade dressing, green bean casserole, and good friends who brought terrific sides.
