When you leave the basic security of a home with its large kitchen, equipped with countless electrical gadgets, and condense your life into the compact galley of an RV, you must also alter your thinking to match the limitations of both space and facilities.
Along with the changes in both scenery and lifestyle, trying new and different foods will make life and the experience more exciting.
Over the years, Jim has come up with three basic rules for cooking in an RV. Rule #1: Never cook anything which takes longer to prepare than it does to eat. Rule #2: The fewer pots you use, the fewer you have to wash. Rule #3: No cosine de todo vaca por un taco. (Don’t cook the whole cow for one taco.)
Jim makes the recipes in this book easy to follow, quick to prepare and interesting enough to prevent boredom.
He also uses items which are the most likely to be found in the average RV because there will be many times when a trip to the grocery store could prove to be very difficult.
Jim Foreman is a well-known and popular member of several RV email groups and forums so you may already know that he loves to cook cowboy style.
As an avid RVer, Jim found that his cowboy recipes and style of cooking adapted well to the confines of his RV kitchen.
Jim’s Cook Book isn’t a Mexican or even a Tex-Mex cookbook, but many of the recipes are based on favorites of that region. This comes from having spent most of his life in the southwest as well as many pleasant winters camped along the beaches of Baja. The main thing Jim tries to get across in his book is: Have fun, enjoy life and Mucho Gusto.
Okay, we know what you’re thinking… Newspaper? Jim says the best thing about cowboy cooking is you can do it your way. Use parchment, waxpaper, aluminum foil or w ver, You can even use a bowl but remember a bowl is just one more thing you have to wash!
