Wine & Whiskey
In The RV Kitchen
Our longest time in our mobile condo (30 days) means a lot of meals. While we dined out a lot we also cooked at "home" a lot. Wine likes to keep meals simple while on the road, so most of the food is cooked in cast iron or on the Blackstone grill.
If you have nothing better to do you can kill some time by watching this video with snippets of the cooking we did while in and outside of our tiny house. We should open the video by saying "This video sponsored by Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning" because we used this on almost everything.
Wine's tips for cooking while living in an RV:
Keep ingredients simple.
Stuff your freezer before you head out on the road.
Stock butter and olive oil.
Sautéing and "grilling" on the Blackstone are quick and easy ways to cook.
Plan your meals ahead of time for a few days and have everything you need on-hand.
Cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and broccoli are good veggie options because they stay fresh longer than other veggies.
Consider frozen veggies if you have freezer space.
Plan meals that use minimal pots and pans especially if you are not hooked up to water and sewer.
Rice is a handy and versatile starch; stock it for a quick side dish.
Keep seasonings simple. I made a spice rub to bring along, but also rely on Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning for quick and easy seasoning.
Pick up and cook local seafood if you are in area that offers it.
For this trip we stayed at Hilton Head Motorcoach Resort, Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort, and Harvest Hosts. The resorts don't allow campfires so that is why we relied on the Blackstone.
We like to cook over campfires when it is an option. Read about that here:
