Where our wheels take us!
We cook all the same meals in our motorhome as we did when we had a sticks and bricks kitchen. We both like our bacon extra crispy, and we've found cooking it in the microwave does a good job without burning it. We layer a pound of bacon between layers of paper towels to capture the grease. What we don't use right away is frozen for future use. The vent fans make short work of the odor.

The wife and I love charcoaled/smoked burgers/steaks occasionally seasoned with powdered Worchester sauce or Dale's Sauce, and polish sausage to where they are dark brown, slightly blackened to that perfect flavor. Since we love to charcoal and never seem to have the time at home we only charcoal when camping, both lunch and dinner. That makes camping more special. I love BBQ also but I'm not talking about BBQ where the sauce is applied before or during cooking.

In the south charcoaling is an artform. We use only real charcoal and fruit woods because propane doesn't come close to seasoning the flavor. I was the executive manager of a steakhouse for 5 years. No successful steakhouse uses gas or a griddle. That is fast food fare.

Nothing changes, i do all the cooking and refuse to call skip the dishes etc. I dont do fast food except for maybe once a month if that. Cooking on the road just takes a little longer in prep and cooking time. I dont use prepackaged anything if i can help it so when we stop for groceries im usually planning 2 or 3 days ahead but we also have the luxury of an 18cu ft fridge which helps a ton

We have a lot of salads with chicken, fish, steaks. If we have been out for a long day then we might have a tin of pre cooked chicken with some ramen noodles like a thick soup. I make chilli and gazpacho often and you can freeze these easily.

We have limited gadgets but we do use a ninja blender, a small stick blender to whip up mayo, hollandaise etc. We have 2 frying pans and 3 pots. A toaster, kettle and coffee drip machine.

We have eggs a lot for breakfast, scrambled, omelette, poached with bacon or avocado on toast.

We are trying to stay away from carbs and sugar. If you have type 2 diabetes I recommend looking up a medically researched and highly successful eating plan called Fast800. I lost 2 stones last year and am about to embark on it again as I need to get rid of more.

My wife is such a good cook but cooks outside on a skillet.

Her dad was from India and she uses spices most people have never heard off. (she's my cinnamon girl) They eat very little meat, almost vegetarian which is good for me because my blood type is A positive.

I fish so the skillet works well too and so easy to clean. She cooks, I clean and take out the garbage.

Frozen foods are great in the microwave in bad weather.

I still love hot dogs and brats on an open fire.

Saw Biden's green targets today eating only 4 pounds of red meat a year. I thought that was funny, when I was 30 I could eat an 18 ounce prime rim. As you get older you eat less red meat.

I'm pretty much a vegetarian now. When I eat meat I prefer non-breaded gently cooked fish... most people over cook fish... I can eat them raw. In Canada when I was in the boy scouts we drank water directly from the lakes and learned to clean fish really well... I love sardines...

My dad was in the military and I had two older brothers which is probably why I'm the man I am. My dad was an assistant Boy Scout master and took the troop to Canada every year. He was the greatest dad in the world but he wasn't good at riding a bicycle or motorcycle.
