Brilliant! We've only got one long trip this summer to Sturgis, SD, but we might just do that on the final day rolling in.

One of my favorites is Peanut Butter Chicken. Easy to make in a pressure cooker. Served over rice. Ultimate comfort food!

We will be traveling with friends this year to the Good Sam Rally in KY. We have a fifth wheel & they have a Class C.
I told her about the crockpot cooking while on the road. How do you do it? Do you have to keep the generator going while you travel?

Thanks-You guys are mean!

You guys are mean! I'm looking at the RV in the driveway and know we will probably not get away for up to three weeks. I was chomping at the bit to go camping and now I'm so darn hungry, I could eat the eastern end of a west bound skunk. LOL
We live in lobster country and are lucky to have a family member that is in the lobster industry. We seldom run out of lobster. Now cold beer, that's another story.

These are great as a side dish

My DW slices potato thin (1/8 inch) and places them in a tin foil pack with a bit of butter and Lipton dry onion soup mix. Sprinkle the soup mix and butter between potatoes and fold up foil to create a sealed pouch. Place on the barbeque and turn fairly often for the time it takes to do your steak. These are so good with a little sour cream. YUM YUM

Oh to enjoy Maine lobsters. I think the one's I had when I was there were shedders, or sheddahs as I believe it's pronounced. Uncle and Aunt live in Bucks Harbor, Maine. Been 25+ years since I went there, but getting lobsters right on the dock at the co-op and digging our own clams with my uncle. Man what a memory!

We vacationed in Maine two summers ago (Love Portland!) and about every other day DW and I would go to a lobster shack for fresh lobster, throw a steak on the grill, and surf and turf under the stars! However, the last time we did this, the lobsters were only out of the ocean a couple of hours. They were so fresh and "alive" that they fought like hell going into the pot of boiling water, sticking out their claws and grabbing the side out the pot. From this experience my wife will never cook lobster again, though she will eat them.

We keep the meals simple....(2 week trip) On the day we leave, we usually buy a couple of premade salads and have them when we arrive. Over the years we've been reading more about people using their crock pots on the road. We usually include a pork roast with veggies cooked in 7UP all day. There's always a burger night, at least a couple of chicken breast nights. We buy stuffed pork chops for one night and burritos for another. If we're in an area that has good fresh fish, we usually do some scallops and shrimp butterflied on the BBQ.

I keep boxes of side dishes like noodles and corn bread stocked in the cupboard and we bring both fresh and frozen vegetables. On a two week trip we usually eat on the raod one night and go out for a nice dinner once or twice.

I like to cook/grill everything over the fire or BBQ including breakfast. Something right about food cooked outside. Nothing fancy, a rib eye with a baked potato.

Poor Mans Steak

My grand kids love this. I take a small balogna stick and slice it 3/4 of the way through and about 3/4 of an inch slices to form a bunch of patty's. I wrap it in tin foil after putting barbeque sauce in between the slices and on the outside of the balogna. Put the foil package on the grill and turn several times.We use it just like a hamburger. The kids call it "Grampy's Poor Mans Steak". I love it to.

Another good meat dish is a piece of pork loin cooked in the slow cooker with a bottle of Coke over it.

We have a NuWave infrared portable oven we take with us in the MH. This thing is great, our favorite is Chicken Parmesan. Doesn't heat up the whole MH, great for rainy days if you want a grilled steak etc but don't want to deal with standing around getting wet.
Also a big fan of the crockpot, one of our favorites is to throw a pork roast in with an onion and a small bottle of our favorite bbq sauce. Let it slow cook about 10 hours and it just pulls apart, voila! You have pulled pork sandwiches!

That sounds a lot like us! The DW has to be on a gluten free diet, so essentially we both are. We have a micro/convection - haven't used the convection yet as we're missing the interior shelf and just haven't bought a replacement yet, but we offset that with a countertop Cuisinart oven.

The Cuisinart oven is great! We make everything in the small oven that we would cook at home - meatloaf, chicken, turkey breasts (in place of a whole turkey), oven roasts, gluten free cakes and much more. Since it's usually just the two of us, we're buying smaller cuts of meat, etc so most times the smaller oven isn't a problem at all

We've been eating gluten free for a couple of years now and we both feel great, have more energy and have lost noticeable pounds over the years. For us, removing bread, white flour and sugar from our diets has been great! So good in fact that with the change in diet and essentially just walks with the dogs I was able to go from a 40" waste on my pants to a 33" The DW has slimmed down as well ... but don't think I'm telling her weight loss here ;-)

the BBQ(charcoal, no gas) and smoker are always going when we are out.
Usually always smoke a couple briskets and a couple turkeys for the group.
Makes for a nice smell when out all day too
