"What is the fanciest or most ambitious meal you've ever prepared while on the road and how did you overcome the limitations of the typical RV "kitchen"?"
Every year we travel from NC to Lakeland Florida for Thanksgiving. I cook a full meal for 14 people (sit down, buffet). Deep fried turkey, stuffing balls, butter beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, giblet gravy, small ham, pea salad, homemade buttermilk biscuits, pecan and pumpkin pie. This is all possible using counter top toaster oven, bella buffet crock pots, 2 electric pans, turkey fryer and rv stove and oven. It is a lot of work but I love doing it.
Yes we all sit down to eat in the camper. We use a 6 foot folding table at the couch (7 people) with folding camp chairs, 4 at the camper's table, 2 in the recliners with tv tables, and finally one at the flip up counter extension. It's a tight fit but everyone has elbow room and nothing wrong with family being close
So anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
