Gourmet Food When ‘Roughing It’

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.

Recipes from the Caravan

We live well on holidays! Going away with a big group of family and friends lends itself to trying new recipes or perfecting those old favourites. On our annual beach holiday we are lucky enough to catch a variety of seafood and every little thing we keep is put to good use.  Between a few camps we pitch in and help each other to create some pretty special dishes in my opinion. Here are a few we love. You’ll notice there are no specific quantities mentioned and that’s because it’s pretty much a guess or done by feel and taste when on holidays.

What’s in Your Caravan or Camping Pantry?

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.

More Holiday Recipes

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.

It’s C-C-Cold – Time for Comfort Food and Astrophotography

Well it is winter, what do you expect? In reality it’s not always possible to get away road tripping as often as we want right? So in the meantime and especially in winter, there are things to do in preparation for future trips.

If the days are just too wet, cold, windy and miserable to spend much time outdoors, it can be time to try out a few more recipes that are quick and easy to prepare in the caravan. This one is a definite for my caravan recipe book. A foolproof (and don’t waste your time standing around stirring) risotto.

Permission to have fun!

Weeks of holidaying together in the same spot each year breeds familiarity, and it’s a good thing.  Everyone has their strengths and ideas are pooled (even the silly ones!)

We have a lot of shared dinners at our annual holiday and it’s because we really get to enjoy each other’s company, combine ideas for a menu for the evening meal, all help out with the prep and learn from each other. These slow, shared meals taste the best because so much time and effort has gone into them and dare I say they have that added ingredient of love, awwwww.

Eat, Sleep, Fish, Repeat.

If you’ve seen the movie Groundhog Day, you’ll be familiar with the theme of reliving the same day over and over again.

We jokingly refer to our time on holidays at Moonta Bay on Yorke Peninsula as our Groundhog Day and believe me there could be plenty worse.
