Small Motorhome Water Tanks

Now that our Motohrome is back David has been super busy trying to work on the issues that we have always had, and have always put up with! You know that saying “Never enough time when you have the money, and never enough money when you have the time” – yeah we have had lots of projects needed to be done on our Motorhome that the very Small Motorhome Water Tanks have always been pushed to the side and forgotten about!

The tanks have started leaking again – they leaked on/off over the years and he has repaired them that many times that its not worth fixing. He pulled the three tanks out – way to small for our sized family – and decided one of them is beyond repairing and has left the other two sitting in the grass underneath to see if the leak is now fixed.

Black Forest Cake Gluten Free

David is our Cook in our family – I cook because I have to, he cooks because he wants to. And he experiments, adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that until he gets the recipe right. I cook the recipes I know, stick to them and don’t experiment with any new ingredients!

Now that we eat mostly “Gluten Free” and try to stay Sugar Free as much as possible he has lots of ingredients, and lots of ideas and puts them together. Sometimes they don’t work out {He is still experimenting with his Gluten Free Sugar Free Bases for his Pumpkin Pies}, sometimes they do work out and taste amazing.

Davids Birthday Breakfast And Dinner

Last weekend was David’s Birthday. He didn’t want to celebrate it with any fuss so I wasn’t allowed to mention to family or announce it online. So I respected his wishes and I didn’t even speak with our oldest boys to let them know – he didn’t want gifts. He wanted a day of fun, a day spent with family and Breakfast/Dinner with his favourite foods.

I was joking with him about “Getting Old” – but in actually fact he is not getting old, its only a number and you can feel as young as you like! Its actually a mindset thing – you can feel as older then age or even younger then your age. He says that he still feels like he is 21, but seen the ages of our oldest Woody Sons are around that he can’t be!

He wanted Bacon for Breakfast ::

Cooking Dinner On Our Choofer

David loves cooking. He creates meals out of the raw ingredients that could easily be added to menu’s in Restaurants, or even in a Food Van! I think he is wasting his cooking skills but we are working towards sharing them soonish. The following dish was a Creamy Mustard Vegetarian meal that was the best we have ever eaten! I think its because of the “Woody” smokey taste to the dish!

We have shared Making Dinner Outside The Motorhome before – cooking our favourite dishes and sharing them! As soon as we got our Motorhome back we all were keen to have our Choofer out of the Boot and our boys collected the wood from the paddock asap so that we could fire it up!

What To Keep When Downsizing

On the weekend we helped two beautiful people with getting as much done as possible because they needed to move out of their house. And I was itching to pack up their “Shed” which was a “homeschool Room” – now a store room but there was only so many hours in one weekend, and only so much two mamas could do! Maybe another time we will get back there and help them out again {we love them so we would help them all any time they asked}

And I was helping them move down as many “Storage Cupboards” as possible to to their new home – Storage is really important when you downsize but it got me to thinking about when we had to downsize our massive 4 bedroom house {it had two lounge rooms and massive verandas} and David {and our boys} are hoarders so we had a lot of stuff to sort through. And had to think about Motorhome Storage Space.

The Cost Of Living On The Road

Yesterday I was asked to do a Radio Interview for Wave FM Breakfast Show in Wollongong. A phone interview. At first I said No. They contacted us through our Facebook page, and thought our story/journey of buying/living in a motorhome was inspirational.

I answered with the following “Hi Russell, ¬†Thanking you so much for touching base. But we are no longer in Wollongong – we are on the Sunshine Coast. And our motorhome broke down so its being stored in New South Wales while we are waiting on the parts to be fixed! I am not that inspirational at the moment cause we are kinda stuck without our motorhome. We hope to be back in it by June”

Spicy Chicken Wings With Blue Cheese Sauce

This recipe was the inspiration from Peach Keen Mumma with her very yummy Recipe – “Franks Red Hot American Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dip” – OH my gosh I so wished I had tried it before!

Mind you I did change a few of the ingredients to suit what I already had in the fridge and purchased the rest from Woolworths…..

As we live and cook in our Motorhome I am challenged with finding new recipes that we all like, and that I can cook with such limited Space, we have a bench top oven but its not the best for heat!

World Toilet Day

Today its a Special Day….did you know there is a “World Toilet Day“? Nope I didn’t realise either until now….

You see living in a 10 Foot Motorhome with three of our five boys we don’t have a Toilet as such, we have tried a Porta Loo once, and it was so very smelly – like really bad smelly. That bad that I wrote about it, read our previous experience “Portable Toilet Cleaner, What Is That Smell“.

As you walked into our Motorhome you could smell it before even opening up the Shower Door. So David has been trying to work out how to add a proper Toilet to our shower but the limited space has made it impossible.

Munching Monday Sundried Tomatoes Chicken Pasta

Its that time of the week again! Munching Monday where I share a recipe that we make while living in our Motorhome. Mind you this was our Oldest Son’s Recipe because he stayed with us for two days last week before deployment day.

And to be honest I didn’t think to ask him how to make it….but I do know the ingredients list cause we went shopping together for the Sundried Tomatoes Chicken Pasta Dish. I never ever thought he would make a good cook….love it when I get surprises.
