What is your favorite dish when airstreaming?

In the past we have always found a restaurant when traveling, and the grill when we are set up at a site. That gets expensive when the kids (ages 2 & 3) don't want what they asked for when ordering and say "I'm hungry" an hour after we leave the restaurant.

This year we will be taking along something to eat at a pull off with a restroom and skip the restaurants. (ie: lunch meats, chicken salad, veggies, drinks in a cooler, etc)

When we are set up at the site we tend to do the regular burgers, bacon, pork, hot dogs, etc on the grill or campfire and maybe a couple quick kid friendly sides that can be nuked or takes little time on the stove as not to heat up the AS too much.

A favorite dessert of ours is apple cobbler in a dutch oven cooked low & slow!! Maybe this year we can take the ice cream maker along for home made ice cream to go along with!!

What are some of your favorites when traveling and when set up?

In summer it's hot dogs & watermelon or anything BBQ'd.

We always travel with a supply of Black Forrest ham chips and cherry turnovers for lunch and breakfast.

In Winter it's something something BBQ'd and stew or beans. Usually beans as they warm you twice.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

We eat the usual rabbit food in the rig. And then look forward to the next place where they've got either green chili cheeseburgers or Indian tacos!

quick and cool. everything is prepped and is in containers or bags. heat the beans then build your taco. leftovers get thrown in an omelet! ( for the kiddies, use a Pita pocket and only open a small hole! You can also fill pita with cheese and sauce and etc . warm on micro!) container eating!

Sandwich when on the road and usually a nice steak on the grill. Last weekend I took 10 lbs of crawfish and boiled them up with some new potatoes and a couple of ears of fresh corn on the cob. Now that was a feast.

Anything that is a simple, one-dish, complete meal with a side of fruit, raw veggies or salad.

Many on-the-road meals use rice or beans of some sort, and frequently are freshly cooked but partly a convenience food such as canned beans, a rice mix or frozen pulled pork we have brought from home.

In hot weather, a Greek pasta salad with lots of veggies and feta cheese is cool and quick.

We keep singly wrapped chicken breasts, half pounds of lean ground beef, ham steaks and turkey breakfast sausage in our little freezer.

We save more complex meals for when we are parked for a few days with electricity, when we pull out the slow cooker and do Swiss steak, pot roast, etc., to satisfy Doug-the-carnivore. Without beef for too many days, he gets crabby.

And, a refrigerated loaf of French bread or simple cobbler bakes up nicely in our little Dutch oven, to perk up and round out leftovers or soup.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Awwww, favorite meal while camping. That's a hard one. On the last trip we had fresh caught trout. Yum!

Steaks and tators come to mind.
So does a low country boil.
Breakfast is especially yummy when camping. The smell of bacon cooking, the g-daughter dishing up her pancakes with chocolate syrup and whip cream.....or biscuits and gravy.

So many possibilities, so little time.

Ohhh, ribs!!!

My wife always precooks main dishes. She will freeze them if we are going on a long trips. Spaghetti, chili, roast chicken, enchiladas, grilled pork chops, etc. When ready for dinner we will have a fresh salad, bread and maybe a side dish. She heats the food in the microwave on the plastic dinner plates. It is quick,delicious, no pots and pans to wash and doesn't take too much time away from more important activities such as relaxing. We do try to have one nice restaurant meal on each trip if there is something close by that we like.

When we take our granddaughters with us, we stock Ramen Noodle Cups, vending-machine snack packs of cookies, peanut butter/cheese crackers, peanuts, almonds, etc., all from Costco. Also, cheese sticks make great rollups using thin deli-sliced ham or turkey. Plus, the kids have fun making these themselves.

Since we're on vacation, we don't worry about these items not being what adults consider healthy or "regular" food. It's only for a few days; and it's really convenient when you pull into a camp spot late at night and everybody's tired, or one person is hungry and everyone else isn't.

I also make up dishes ahead and freeze, spagetti sauce, enchilladas, meatloaf, casseroles, twice baked potatoes & more. We mostly BBQ a whole array of things, steaks, chicken, ribs, beef & salmon burgers, etc. Have started premaking taco meat & freeze that, we then have tacos on our final night, that way we can pack up the BBQ and not have to wait for it to cool down.
