What better way to celebrate 100 years of RVing than with delicious, easy-to-prepare food that you can share with friends and family on the road? “The RV Centennial Cookbook” by Evada Cooper contains 100 recipes from a life-long avid RVer. The recipes are complemented by maintenance tips and RV-related historical tidbits from the past 100 years.
Conjure up some nostalgia while reading about popular children’s games such as Kick the Can and Drop the Handkerchief and how you can play them today with your grandkids. Some of the historical facts might surprise you — did you know that Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and then-President Warren G. Harding went RVing together? As the book will tell you, they called themselves the “Vagabonds” and enjoyed camping on their trips in the early 1900s.
As far as the recipes go, they all contain ingredients that are easy to find at most supermarkets, and most of them look so good that we can’t imagine saving them just for when we’re on the road. We’re getting hungry just thinking about “Methane Madness: A Sweet Chili” and “My Favorite Taco Salad,” both of which look super simple to prepare.
The book retails for $19.95 and is endorsed by RVIA as one of its centennial promotions. It is available through Amazon and http://publishing.tstc.edu/.
