Meal Planning and RV Cooking Tips for Tiny Kitchens

Meal Planning and RV Cooking Tips

Just because we live in a small RV with a tiny kitchen doesn’t mean putting out delicious gourmet meals isn’t just a pipe dream. Since downsizing to our tiny Class C motorhome, I’ve formulated a whole new way of meal planning and some RV cooking tips. From storing provisions and ingredients to my much-needed kitchen gadgets, we simply don’t have the storage we were accustomed to before which affected the way I cooked. But now that I have that all down. While we are enjoying our even more nomadic RV lifestyle, I can still chef it up in the kitchen! Just on a much smaller scale.

RV Kitchen Space Saving Storage Solutions

Kitchens in RVs, campers and boats are tiny. We all know that. But that doesn’t mean we have to compromise by limiting our kitchen necessities. It also doesn’t mean we should have to constantly worry about messes made going down the road.

How to Create an Outdoor Living Space

Improvise and adapt; a common military phrase when you start with practically nothing or something less desirable and we make it great. The same holds true in our RV lifestyle.

Living quarters in RVs and campers are quite limited. But that doesn’t mean our world or journey is. We love to be outside, especially when the weather is kind to us. So, instead of sitting inside watching tv or working, we relocated ourselves to enjoy the outdoors.

How We Shop at the Farmer’s Market

 

Before we began our full-time RV Life, we would visit Spencer County’s Farmer’s Market. In our little resident town of Taylorsville, Kentucky, we’d shop for freshly home-grown produce and other provisions.  For twenty bucks, we could fill our cloth tote bags with organic vegetables and grass fed raised beef, handmade soaps and natural tinctures. For a little treat, we’d bring home a loaf of baked bread or sweet rolls and an occasional bouquet of flowers.
