Ya, you got the right idea, that is why you simply park in a hotel parking lot and use their rooms for sleeping in.... Don't want to mess up your own bedroom, and besides, who wants to DUMP, just use the facilities else ware, and why did I bring my nice home with me anyway, that wears out the engine and the tires....

That is why you need a nice RV and one that is not so nice... You can use the not so nice one to camp in so that you keep the nice one nice....

LOL

This White chicken chili recipe was a huge hit with friends and family-- and it's really, really simple! You just need a slow cooker. When I make this, I add blended jalapeņos (to taste) and use the "hot" Rotel. More chili powder can be added for spiciness too

1 can of Rotel (do not drain)
1 can of corn (do not drain)
1 can of black beans (drained/rinsed)
2 frozen chicken breasts
8 oz cream cheese
1 packet dry ranch dressing
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chili powder

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook 6-8 hours. Shred chicken, and enjoy in a bowl or in a bun!

That sounds great, will give a try tomorrow for dinner to see how the wife likes it.

Here is one that Most Marines have a fondness for I like to take toast topped with hash browns and eggs with SOS poured over top - yes it is a heart attack meal but oh it is good

This is the actual Marine Corps recipe but pared down to feed either 2 Marines or 4 normal people

SOS
1 pound ground beef
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste


1) Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, until meat is no longer pink. Drain excess fat and set aside.
2) Melt the butter or margarine in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Slowly add the flour, stirring constantly, to form a brown roux.
3) Pour in beef broth and milk, mixing well. Add ground beef, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

Just don't forget to let the BBQ cool off before loading it. I have "heard" it can melt the linoleum on the compartment floor.
I met my wife in Wichita KS in 1989 she comes from a small town in the sw corner of the state while on our first date was seeing what she liked, somehow the subject of breakfast burritos came up found out she had never even heard of them let alone having ever had one - so our second date I made her dinner of breakfast burritos (I grew up in southern California and love Mexican food) She tells everyone she married me because I cook better then her (must still be doing good Oct 1990 we got married)

2 years ago we had a wicked storm that knocked out power for 1 week, our RV was in storage 30 miles away and I was in Afghanistan, so as the freezer started thawing out she cooked everything on our outdoor grill - she got good grilling LOL

We eat about the same as at home, though leaning more toward crock pot cooked food - chili, corned beef, pulled pork, etc. - so we have time to explore. My wife bakes pies, cakes and cookies, and I make bread, to round out the grilled meals as well. We've baked a turkey, cut into pieces to fit in the oven.

Hey Ted; Does you cheek hurt? Hope not but you had to have all of your tongue in there for a bit. I think you hit the mark with your comments.

not using RV kitchen

My DH and I are both good cooks. I look forward to dirtying up our kitchen often as well as the grill outside and the firepit pots. I have firetongs that are 100 yrs old and marshmellow cookers that my Dad made over 50 yrs ago. Dad would love to know I am using them.

They will all get used and cleaned and used again. I am rethinking what Ted said about the dump though, hate cleaning toilets, maybe a tree?

Restaurants are sometimes very noisy but occasionally a convenience. I will mostly choose my own cooking.

Hope you have some great views out your windows even if you have to clean them occasionally! Lynne

I wonder when folks espouse "fine dining" when you have to line up, wait for your table, listen to the din of dining, have to ask for condiments, tip for someone to bring your food to the table and ask you if you like it, and then pay a huge price for wine and the food.

The DW is a superb cook, her pastry is phenominal, we eat what we want, spiced to our taste, the sides are to our liking, we are in comfortable surroundings, we do not line up, eat without pressure, and can hear our conversation.

We do go out to eat but mostly it confirms that we eat as well or better at home.
