Food Prep

Typically we don't spend a whole lot of time packing for our time on the road. There are always odds and ends that need done at home before leaving for a long period of time, but the packing itself doesn't take long and usually ends up being kind of a last minute thing. One of the biggest projects that needs done before each trip is food prep!  We cook a lot of our own meals on the road and since there isn't a whole lot of kitchen space in the bus, anything we have done ahead of time is a huge blessing!

Right now we are getting ready to be in Iowa for the next three weeks at the Old Threshers Reunion and Family Camp. Some of our married siblings are able to come to Old Threshers again this year (which we are super excited about!) so we've been spending a lot of time in the kitchen trying to make sure we bring enough food for everyone. In one day we made dozens of cookies, bean burritos, Runzas (a Nebraska food) 20lb of grilled hamburgers, a couple batches of granola, lots of chicken, hummus, and I don't remember what else. 

Then the next day ,our neighbor called and said she has an apple tree full of apples she can't use. So Mom, Alaythia and Charissa picked them and everyone jumped in and helped turn them all into homemade applesauce. Hours later we had about 60 quarts happily canned and a whole bunch of dishes to do! We are really grateful for the blessing and variety of food and the many hands to help get things done.

"When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you." Deuteronomy 8:10

I'm curious how you rewarm the grilled hamburgers? Everything sounded great!

Do you ever share your recipes?

@Denise -- We usually just put the grilled hamburgers in a skillet with a little bit of water on the bottom and cook it on low until it's heated up again!

@Sarah -- We have shared a few recipes before, but not for a long time. If y'all would be interested I can easily start sharing some of our family favorites!!
