Thanksgiving in an RV

Dinner time

Since we are traveling to San Antonio in Thanksgiving Day, we decided to have our meal a day early.

Less space and less time than previous years

This year is a little different than past Thanksgivings – 1. I have two kids, including a baby 2. My kitchen is much smaller. With these things in mind, I tried to streamline our dinner as much as possible.

  • Turkey: found a 3lb Butterball, pre-seasoned and only takes three hours to cook!
  • Potatoes: found some wonderful instant mash potatoes. Not as good as fresh, but fast and easy to make and still taste.
  • Cranberry sauce: canned, of course!
  • Vegetable: Freah Asparagus
  • Bread: premade from the bakery
Little-dude loved it!

In total, I spent about an hour making dinner and the result was an delicious dinner.

Having fun making ornaments outside while dinner cooks

With the extra time, I was able to spend time doing arts and crafts with the kids. Nothing amazing was made but we had fun and mini-man discovered an affinity for glitter. 

Lesson learned: work smarter, not harder.
