CAMPERVAN RECIPES: Sweet and Sour Chicken Kebabs

Another great recipe from Kim at Kim’s Cravings! These Sweet and Sour Chicken Kebabs look really easy and tasty as well as nutritious. In fact so quick and easy it is the sort of thing you could throw together for a weeknight, ‘sponny’* BBQ in the garden after work on a warm evening.

*’Sponny’ is the word my New Zealand friend uses to describe anything spontaneous and fun.

QUEST FOR A NEW CAMPERVAN: Getting Harder to Find Good Vans

We are getting closer now to buying the base vehicle for our next campervan and Barry, our van-hunter extraordinaire, asked us if it was important to have air con in our van.

QUEST FOR A NEW CAMPERVAN: Our New Mission – Create a Contemporary campervan for £7000

I’m always amazed at the enthusiastic reactions I get from people when I tell them about our campervan, Trev-the-Prev. Mostly I get a big smile followed by “Oh I’d love to do that!” and I realise that so many people secretly want to ‘live the (campervan) dream’. It was the same for Glyn and I when we hired a campervan on a Groupon three years ago and got bitten by the bug but just didn’t have a hope of affording any van that we’d seen. So now my mission is to create a modern campervan from a panel van for £7000 (all in) and I hope that this will inspire people without a £30k+ budget to get their own and live their dream, too. Here’s how I plan to do it…

CAMPERVAN RECIPES: More-ish Lamb Burgers from Moor-ish Dartmoor (sorry..)

We are not long back from a magical weekend on Dartmoor in Devon which is one of my favourite places to camp and explore. I had a pack of lamb mince from home which needed using up and I was trying to think of how to best use it in a campervan recipe. As it turned out it made 2 meals for us: some gorgeous healthy burgers and some meatballs for a pasta dish the next day…
