Motor Home Cooking
While we were kids, my brother, my father and I, had the opportunity of traveling around the countryside with our motor home to explore everything our home country had to offer to “the three musketeers;” that being our code name. Unfortunately, in most of these trips our mother was left behind as she had to work and we were given the chance to spend time with our father who as a nature lover took as almost anywhere our car and feet could lead us. These trips were our time together with our beloved father, who while we were young did everything in his power to spend as much time with us as possible. If time was not the issue back then, we tried to keep the budget under logical limits, so all these trips were made with our car that was carrying on its roof our specially designed and hand-made (by my father) tend.
During those motor home trips and since our mother was not near by to help dad feed his kids, our father was apart much more than the designated driver and the leader of our group. He was also the cook that served us some of the best meals we have ever tasted; probably because we were really hungry by the time we managed to sit down for a meal. The truth is that I still remember the taste of his pasta and if I could go back in time, I would love to experience again the thrill of singing with my brother while our dad was smiling cooking in our motor home.
Other motor home owners might agree with my remark as many support that motor home cooking can produce some of the best cooking results. Living at the country side and being able to smell all that wonderful tasty food makes mouths water with anticipation. If you are a beginner in motor home ownership, you should know that there are several different methods one can experience cooking while camping, like wood fires, camp charcoal, stoves, foil cooking or barbeque. The type of cooking method is directly related to the food you will decide to make and how you like it to be cooked. Sometimes you will have to decide based on your motor home appliances, but then again there are several cooking tips to consider before getting into a motor home vehicle.
Consider freezing the meat for instance. Freezing it ahead of time can keep the meat fresh and other foods in perfect state. My father used to be proactive like that and always planned ahead of time. He used plastic bags or containers to keep measured portions of the food that was going to be consumed safely contained. I think it is also best if you want to avoid food from sticking to the pans to apply oil on the grill. Finally, put matches somewhere safe to keep them dry as many camping cookbook recipes require the use of natural fire and there is no better way to start a fire than with matches. You can also keep your drinks in a separate food cooler as it can help preserve foods for longer periods of time while avoiding any kind of spoilage. Finally, a great tip is to keep water bottles after they are empty because they can become great camping cooking containers to put in any left over salad dressing or any other liquid substance.
