November 24, 2011–Our First Major Holiday in the RV

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Our daughter Mikayla loves keeping traditions, setting a beautiful table and making great food. I knew there was no way she would let me get away with keeping things simple for a holiday meal even though we have a tiny kitchen that consists of two burners and a stove with one rack. She spent a lot of time planning a menu and then informed me that this year, I would be her assistant. Everything would be gluten-free except for one of the stuffings.

For the menu she chose: turkey tenderloin, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, corn, punch, cranberry cheesecake and crustless pumpkin pie.

We chose to make two types of stuffing because the g-free recipe is expensive. We cut it in half and made it as a trial. It was great!

Cooking in the RV takes longer than usual. We had to be very creative today because we have one stirring bowl, a small sauce pan, a large saucepan, a very small frying pan and a large cast iron skillet. We had some empty water jugs that we cut into bowls. They worked great and it was so nice to just throw them away when we were done. Less dishes!

We had a great day! We feel so blessed to travel the country with our girls. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I’m working on sharing some of the g-free recipes we used today. Check back in a day or two.
