Menu Plan Monday - Hits the road!


Hey all! This is it, the big week, my dd is getting married. So we are taking a road trip, which means menus will be crazy and out of sync (and not the boys band or are they men now?) . Crazy is good, sometimes. Nuts is more like it here. I have had a stress headache since last Friday. It has been around so long, that we named it - stress buster (not to be confused with ghost busters). I am sure all the stress will disappear once we pull out on to the road, cross your fingers. We cleaned the RV last week. DH backed out of it's little hidey hole and now we are loading it. Both DH and DS are working tomorrow, as soon as they get out at 5 we are hitting the road. Good thing I learned long ago how to cook while barreling down the expressway, a la the movie "the long, long trailer"; with Lucy and Desi. Also lucky DS works at the animal clinic, so he can take the dogs to work with him and also the guinea pig. We are very blessed in so many ways, and they all lend to us even being able to come on this trip! Can't wait to share it all with you!
Here is our on the road schedule:
Monday: Salisbury patties (made w/ground turkey) w/mashed potatoes and green beans
Tuesday: Leaving for MI - Deli fried chicken (bought last nights mark down) w/home made guacamole and tortilla chips (fixed in RV)
Wednesday: Arriving in MI, depends on time - Turkey burgers w/Tatar tots and carrot sticks (fixed in RV)
Thursday: Rehearsal Dinner for wedding , dd tells me it's at local restaurant (Thanks Nana & Papa)
Friday: WEDDING DAY! Reception to follow.
Saturday: Back on the road and home, verrrrrrrrrry late! Home made pizza w/veggie sticks (fixed in RV)
Sunday: All the diet Vernor's, pickled bologna and hunter sausage we can eat; that we bought in northern Mi, since they don't sell it here in middle TN. (has to be the hunter sausage from Hop's N' Schnapps west ) LOL
When it comes to cooking in the RV, we are really lucky with our oven. Not all RV ovens are created equal. Many newer models have small ovens, because only two old people go RVing? We have a '98 Winnebago class C on a Ford Chaise. DH made sure we got a vehicle that he could fix, not a ginormous diesel pusher. Anyway, I can fit a 9 x 13 pan in my oven! So I will make two 9 x 13 pizza's while we are going down the road.
Whats for dinner at your house this week? For more menu plan Monday visit www.orgjunkie.com

Thanks Lois, I will check that out. I haven't checked our Publix since it became a publix. Before when it was a BI-Low, no dice. You have to remember you live in a ritzer spot of middle TN then we do, LOL

Vernors! Haven't heard about that in awhile. Can't get it around here, but I always remember as a kid my mom having out-of-state family members bringing some for her. :)

I am amazed at "RVing." I never knew you could cook and everything. That is SO COOL! I wanna do that!!!!!
