Happy Thanksgiving (Canadian)
Finding a subject when you are living in an RV takes a little bit of time and effort, food is always a subject.
Why am I living in an RV? Glad you asked, you see in the summer time I live on a very busy Island called Prince Edward Island. PEI as we call it is on the EAst Coast and in Canada. My son told me once in a tone of anger that we didn't live in a home we lived in a business. He was right! Our home is a business, it's a Bed and Breakfast that also houses Grandma's Afternoon Tea Room in the Great Room. The view from the Great Room is of my gardens and My French Gardener.
On September 20th, I closed my doors for yet another season and invited my French Gardener on a trip across Canada. Afterall, I don't drive, map, plan, or cook so I thought it would be a good break for him to get out of the garden, he agreed.
RV Meals on Wheels
Just because you are on the road is no reason to eat in a restaurant, besides it can get expensive and not to mention sooner or later you will end up with the squirts, most likely from the lack of proper food preparation. How do I know this? Hum, food safety and sanitation certificates and the health department has ruled that no one should suffer the squirts and 90% of the time it is due to the handling of food.
So, What's for supper?
RV Cheesy Chicken and Rice a la Crock-Pot
1 can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup
1 1/3 cups of water
3/4 cup of Uncle Bens Tomato and Basil Rice (see below)
1 cup of frozen Italian vegetables (see below)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder, garlic powder
3/4 cup of bean medley
1/4 tsp black pepper
extra cut up vegetables left over in the fridge, I had red pepper, tomato and onion.
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless.
1/2 cup shredded old cheddar cheese
1. Stir the soup, water, rice, onion powder, pepper and vegetables the crock-pot
2. Place the chicken on top of the rice mixture.3. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Top with that old cheddar, let stand for 10 minutes. Stir and serve.
Note: this is an altered recipe from a Campbell's Soup Recipe.
After 4 hours and not to mention the smell inside the RV was amazing
We had supper ready with little or no work
Lucky I suggested the idea to my French Gardener, didn't he do an amazing job?
It sure was yummy, I almost can't wait till next Monday's Meals on Wheels.
I've had many wonderful picture taking opportunities being on the road. However come Monday's I'd like to let you see what happens on the inside of the RV.
I'll be sharing this Monday with Judith at "Mosaic Monday" at Lavender Cottage.
See you Next Monday,
Cindy & her French Gardener
