Butternut Squash Soup – RV cooking
Living in an RV doesn’t mean that you can’t cook meals for yourself and your family. It just means you must make do with conventions – for this reason, high-speed blenders, instant pots, and crock-pots are the kitchen tools of choice for preparing meals in a limited space. The same goes for my family and I; six people in a small RV makes meal prep slightly different than those in houses with full sized kitchens.
In this recipe, for example, we’ll be making an extremely easy and quick to make soup with butternut squash, onions, garlic, and a few other healthy and basic ingredients. The soup will be piping hot and silky smooth, and all we’ll be using is a pan to saute and boil, and a Vitamix for pulsing everything into a smooth concoction.

How to Make Egg Salad
Egg salad is the perfect snack, lunch, or breakfast. It can be eaten multiple ways: in sandwiches, with crackers, in wraps, or just by itself. On top of that, it is flavorful, and full of protein. And, it is very easy to make.
10 eggs (approx. 1 week old)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
First, take your raw eggs, and place them in a large saucepan with water filled up about two inches. Bring quickly to a boil, and then remove pan from heat, and let the eggs finish cooking in the hot water for about another 15 minutes.
For more details see: How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs, which is a recipe I found helpful, or see this helpful instructable: Easy Hard Boiled Eggs.
When eggs are almost done through their rest/cook time, create an ice-bath in a large bowl.
When eggs are done cooking, dunk them immediately into the ice bath.
From the ice bowl, pick them out to peel them.
After the eggs have been peeled, place each into a wire egg-cutter, and cut one way, then flip egg around, and cut perpendicularly to your last cut. This will make your egg nicely diced.
Once your eggs have been nicely diced, throw all of them into a large bowl.
Throw in the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly until combined.
Now you have a nice bowl of flavorful, protein-packed egg salad. This can be put in lettuce wraps, in between two pieces of bread as a sandwich, eaten with crackers, or just consumed completely by itself.
Store in fridge when not consuming.

1 pound ground beef
½ cup salsa
1 can black beans, or re fried beans, or a mixture of both
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 cup long grain rice, cooked ahead of time
1 large onion
1 cup monterey jack, shredded
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon oil
1 yellow bell pepper
¼ teaspoon chili powder
chopped fresh tomatoes
Mince both onion and bell pepper finely.
Heat oil in a large deep pan until hot.
Add in the onion and bell pepper to pan, and saute until very brown. Remove from pan to a small bowl.
Add the ground beef to the same pan that you had the vegetables in, and stir and break up with a spatula until meat is cooked and brown. Drain the meat juices that are shown above.
Before you add everything, if you don’t want super chunky tomatoes from the can, you can easily use an immersion blender to blend it up some. (mine basically became tomato sauce).
Then add canned tomatoes, black beans, salsa, taco seasoning, and chili powder, and previously cooked rice.
(for how to cook rice, see here: How to Cook Rice)
Stir all the ingredients until well combined.
You are now sort of done with it. Just one more thing:
For Garnishes, you can cut up some cilantro, and sprinkle that with a generous helping of your shredded cheese over the steaming top of your Burrito Bowl.
