Here is a special blog for this time of year. How to cook quality food while RV’ing? How to make your meals special and not feel like they are “canned” or pre-made?  We have some timely tips for your RV cookery! And a great suggestion for a January RV Adventure destination.

Here are some links to some of the most popular roadworthy recipes:

Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls, room temperature
  • 1 cup sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup thawed hash brown potatoes or shredded potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Diced onion (optional)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

Grease a pizza or jelly-roll pan. Press rolls out with fingers onto pan. Layer top of dough with sausage, potatoes, cheese and onion. Beat eggs and milk. Place pan on oven rack and pour egg mixture over the toppings, tilting pan to evenly distribute mixture. Season with pepper. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes.

  • Another is 2X4 Soup, sort of like chili, but easier and great for cold winter evenings:

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds hamburger
  • 2 cans minestrone soup
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 2 cans ranch-style beans 

Directions

Brown hamburger, drain and add tomatoes and chilies, ranch-style beans and minestrone soup. Simmer until hot and eat.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • (2) 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 stick of butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts

Directions

Combine the chocolate chips and butter in a microwavable bowl. Add the two cans of sweetened condensed milk. Cover the bowl with wax paper and microwave for about 3 minutes stirring every minute until everything is melted and smooth. Stir in the cup of walnuts. Spread the mixture evenly into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Cover and let the pan sit overnight in the fridge. Voilá, 3 minute fudge!

 

Where to go RV camping in January?

How about heading south and taking in some sunny days for your January excursion? Head to West Palm Beach for the South Florida Fair. Taking place between January 17th and February 2nd, you can take your time about getting there and see some of south Florida’s sights along the way. As for the fair, this is Palm Beach County’s largest and oldest outdoor event.

Since 1993, the themed expositions produced each year during the South Florida Fair are one of the most popular attractions of the 17-day event. The 2020 South Florida Fair will be a celebration of popular sports in the south Florida community. Experience the essence of sports – competition, fair play, and the zeal to win – at this year’s themed exposition!

Interactive and educational sports exhibits will pave the way as you stroll through the Expo Center. The Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America exhibition, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and the Florida Humanities Council, will teach our visitors the cultural impact and importance of the different sports in American communities. The National Baseball Hall of Fame’s “Picturing America’s Pastime” offers a snapshot of the photograph collection in the Museum’s photo archive, spanning almost 150 years.

And, don’t miss the exhibit at the Fair of the Highwaymen, a legendary group of African American artists who have been selling their colorful works of art along the road for 60 years. The Highwaymen, who developed a rapid style of painting that captured a romantic vision of Florida, still lives on to this day. For more information about them see Highwaymen Art Specialists.
