Easy Meal Tips- Share Yours

Just thought I'd share a few meal tips:

1. Grab something on the way out of town( no cooking or clean up.)
2. Get pull tab fruits and veggies ( saves having to use can opener)
3. If it's just the two of you. A baked chicken and bag of salad.
4. Fruit cocktail and a tub of cool whip , makes an easy side, if you have to contribute to a larger meal.
5. Cheap plastic tablecloths over the camp tables make for easy cleanup.
6. Make your own jug of tea and save buying the expensive versions and you can control the sugar.
7. Frozen ( micro) sides are easy and add a can of chicken as an entree.

And this one is nice if ladies like a bath. Portable jacuzzi for home tub, works well in our Gateway ( larger tub). ( not food related )

Share your food tips.

When out looking for a new improved model of girlfriend, always check to see if the "can cook" tab has been checked on the option list.


The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

The kind of stuff mentioned above works for a weekend. For trips of two or more weeks, I cook like I do at home. We hardly ever use our microwave, so I cook on the stove and the propane oven. That means I have a small tote of seasonings, staples such as flour, sugar (brown and white), yeast, baking soda, etc. For vegetables we use both fresh and frozen, though we have to repackage the frozen into small quantities. When we will be dry camping for periods over 3 days (frequently!), I generally bring some dehydrated meats and vegetables (made at home) so I don't have to worry about fresh meat.

Bella222..............We bought your last motor home. The stove was never used. And the fridge, it looked slightly used.

We like to smoke meats and we use a vacuum packager and freeze the excess. That way on travel days all we have to do is steam some fresh veggies and we have a great meal with the smoked meat.

I do all the cooking when the camper is involved. I enjoy it, and she deserves the time off.

On the road trip:
something quick for breakfast like cereal
sandwiches or salad for lunch
for dinner we'll either have a veggie puck (err, burger) on the grill, or I'll have some meat marinating and we'll toss it on the grill.

At the destination:
If it's a hiking trip, I'll mix up a batch of sausage scrambled eggs and hashbrowns on the first morning, and we'll have breakfast burritos the remainder of the trip. Otherwise, I'll whip up a batch of pancakes, or bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns for breakfast.
Lunch is typically something easy like a sandwich, salad, or a local restaurant.
Dinner will be something on the grill, maybe a baked potato, and some sort of vegetable. If we find some good corn at a farmers market, I'll throw that on the grill. Occasionally I'll grill up some squash and zucchini.

I suppose there's not much there that's quick and easy for the camp cook, but it is much easier for the home cook.

I cut it thick and let it soak in olive oil/spice mixture, then toss it on the grill. Sorry, can't really be much more specific on the spice mixture. My mother taught me how to cook and recipes rarely entered the equation, so I just toss in whatever sounds good at the time.
