Working a job that tells you where to go has it’s benefits… 

We were down in Orange City, Florida for 2 weeks while Allen was working on a tower there. They finished up the Tuesday before Memorial Day and we were supposed to head to a job near Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Then the customer in Arkansas decided he didn’t want to be off the air while they worked on his line for his antenna so he was contemplating getting a standby antenna (so he could still broadcast but his signal just wouldn’t be as strong as the main one). So the company told us to sit tight while he decided. All the equipment was on the site in Orange City that they needed in Arkansas so we got a couple days off.  Continue reading

Surviving Minnesota

Comfort food is helping us survive Minnesota for sure! I’ve been making a lot of soups and warm meals for us lately. I even made a huge crock pot full of vegetable soup for Allen to take to work and share with the guys earlier this week.img_2478 Continue reading

Tried & True Holiday Recipes

I made all these for our friends and family Thanksgiving dinner… (I planned ahead, big time!) But I’d highly recommend them if you’re making Christmas dinner! They can all be made in a tiny camper kitchen (like ours) also! Enjoy and please let me know what you think if you try them!  Continue reading

Thanksgiving Dinner in an RV 

Thanksgiving dinner was a success! When we went shopping, we were planning on it only being Allen and I for dinner.  Obviously we bought WAY too much food because we wound up feeding 4 adults & 4 kids… with leftovers!

We didn’t do too bad! 

The main challenge lies in the planning stage. Continue reading

Slow Cooker Baked ZITI

Now that fall is here and the weather is getting cooler, I’m using my slow cooker a lot more.

The slow cooker is also great when I can use one of those slow cooker disposable liners. Especially when we are traveling and don’t necessarily have time to do lots of dishes (or when we don’t have a full hook up site for the camper!) Not to mention, anything you can make in one pot saves a ton of time and space, and space is ALWAYS at a premium in RVs…

This is a first for me though, making pasta in the crock pot, but it came out great! Continue reading

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin & Veggie Rice Bowl

What’s not to love about a grilled pork tenderloin? (even if it isn’t wrapped in bacon like this one) The teriyaki sauce adds lots of flavor, and it’s homemade!

Healthy, Homemade, Delicious!

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

I made these last night for dinner and Allen said “you should blog about this!” If he says that, I know it’s definitely going on the make again list… So here it is!  Continue reading

Rainy Labor Day? Shepherd’s Pie to the rescue!

Down in Florida, our rain from Hurricane Hermine is long gone, but if you’re in the path or the wake of it, you’re probably not planning a big cook out for Labor Day… So here’s an indoor dinner idea that could easily feed a crowd. Continue reading
