Great idea. We use our crockpot at home a lot. Do they work well on an inverter or do you start the genny?

We went on a two week trip last year and only ate out for 2 meals. We like to make 2 - 3 soups ahead for the travel days. Lasagna or enchilada casseroles are good ones to make ahead. We also grill almost every night while we are set up at a camp site, so we carry steaks, chicken breast, pork tenderloin, etc in the freezer. I love cooking bacon, eggs, and pancakes outside on the grill in the AM. We like to check out the local grocery stores or farmer's markets for fresh produce and fruit. You run into some interesting places along the way. If all else fails, there's always a Walmart somewhere along the way.

A bit late to the party, but I will describe an approach that is quite different than what the others have described.

Since we like out of the way places, we do not always have access to a grocery store or farmers markets. We prep a lot of things in our dehydrator before our season (mostly March through October or November). I dehydrate a lot of fruits and vegetables since they store very well in less space than canned or frozen. The easiest way is to dehydrate frozen items, but if I get a good deal on fresh produce, I will dry that. We package mostly using a vacuum bag sealer. We even dehydrate sausage and hamburger which rehydrate to use (and taste) just like freshly cooked. I also take staples like flour, sugar, and lots of seasonings. Then we pretty much cook from scratch. This lets us go to the grocery store for fresh foods only once a week even though we have a standard RV refrigerator.

Extended trip food prep ?

I love this thread! Well...I'm a huge fan of the Foodsaver vacuum sealer. We love to cook great things at home so we freeze the leftover portions to take on trips. Also purchase ribeyes or filets from Costco, freeze, then seal individual steaks. A frequent thing is to grill salmon and slightly undercook it, then freeze, seal and reheat when we camp. All we need to do then is wilt a little organic spinach in garlic n olive oil for like 2 minutes and dinner is done!! We've had the most fabulous short ribs on the road, and other things; i.e. twice baked potatoes and all you have to do is put them on foil on the grill to re-warm or micro if you want. Easiest, healthiest way to go for us! I love the vacuum sealer. It has been such a great tool for us! We're going away for Easter weekend and we are going to prep bbq baby backs, freeze then take with so all we'll need to do is get the grill going and slather with sauce! This method works really well for the times you think you're going to eat at the rig but something comes up and you're out eating somewhere else! Saves food waste. Also all the smaller packages take up less space in the tiny freezer. We did a two week trip last summer and our freezer was packed with stuff that lasted the trip.....less eating out somewhere else, of course 😉
