Since I write a travel AND mystery blog, I wanted to share moments from our six week trip from Oregon, to Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Washington and back home. 

Perhaps we will run into mysteries along the way. If we do, I'll let you know!

Many of you are experienced RVers and have your meal preparations all worked out. However, this is the first long trip we've ever taken in our fifth wheel, so I wanted to be prepared. Three days before our trip, I shopped for seven hours. Two days before we left, I cooked for 13 hours. The result of all this prep: meals were so dang easy! I kept the meat in the freezer in small bags and reheated as needed. Meal prep was quick and I had no greasy stove or counters to clean up.

I'll share some of the meals that worked great. Maybe they will work for you as well (even at home).

For our six-week trek, I planned to have Chinese Chicken Salad three times. I figured how much chicken John and I would use and sauteed it with salt and pepper. After it cooled, I bagged it in 3 baggies and labeled each.

The ingredients you see above include lettuce, mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, and Chinese noodles (it came with a plastic lid so would store well for all three meals). I also like to add cilantro and chopped green onions. I purchased Chinese Chicken salad dressing and it was delicious.

Best to you,
