Hello from the catering department. (MrsAdmin)
Funny how despite some changes to the domestic scene while we are on the road, for example role reversal in coffee and bed making, I am still always in charge of buying and cooking. Seems fair as he himself does all the driving, maintenance, bathrooms duties and so on. Of course he does cook at home, in fact, even has signature dishes and definitely has signature kitchen debris! That could be it, as we all know that however well our 'homes' are designed there is never quite enough room for ten chopping boards! Still it remains for me to wonder whether finding interesting and economical meals whilst travelling is left to me due to the challenge!
We have however come up with one or two recipes that do just this and thought that a collection of MH friendly meals would be helpful both to newbies and those looking for some variety. Steak and salad can be very good but not EVERY night!
We are inviting members to send in their favourite recipes that have both economy in terms of fuel consumption, simplicity and variety in mind.
For Subscribers a collection of recipes have been posted here.
Hi to all.
We have a mr d's thermal cooker which we find invaluable whilst travelling,as it needs no power except for boiling water.i just prepare the meal in advance and it's cooked when we reach our destination.
It's quite an expensive outlay but saves money on power as we use it at home as well.......
Most of my meals are cooked at home and vacuum packed so when out and about all I need is one pan of boiling water to reheat the various foods in the bag, i.e. Goulash and rice, chicken curry and rice, boiled potatoes and veg etc....
Caro I have good news! Total success with the chicken stuffed with Brie and onion chutney. I made it when we had visitors for dinner. Served with ratatouille and tray of roasted veg. Everyone enjoyed the chicken, thanks...
