The joys of caravanning with friends are many and in the case of meals and happy hour treats the bar seems to get raised higher and higher when we dine together. With a month spent at the beach and fishing as one of the main pastimes, there are plenty of recipes tried and tested from campsite to campsite and lots of willing guinea pigs to try them.
We are lucky in our caravan to have a small pull out panty in the kitchen cabinets and in it we always keep a few staples items that are versatile ingredients and can be used for many meals. All you have to do is add a few fresh ingredients and you’re set. There is also plenty of cupboard space in the kitchen area to add in a few extra handy to have ingredients for cooking on holidays. Whenever something is used it goes onto a shopping list straight away to replace so we are always set to go at a moment’s notice.
What little luxuries do you take on holidays? Caravan and camping doesn’t mean you have to go without your favourite things. When you are travelling on a long road trip you are probably more conscious of carrying less to lighten the load but on shorter distances or longer stays why not take some home comforts.
As it draws closer to our annual end of year holiday which involves a long, crowded, noisy getaway with family and friends to a familiar beachside caravan park, I start to revisit and update my holiday cookbook. In the caravan I always keep a soft folder full of plastic sleeves that I insert quick and easy typed up recipes for use on holidays.
