Living in an RV requires daily routines that involve words like small, manageable, and minimal. Thanksgiving dinner, no matter where you cook it, has a tendency to be big!
We are going to share our 5 Top Tips for whipping up Thanksgiving Dinner in Your RV and it involves two words: INSTANT POT!

- Get an Instant Pot! If you don’t already own an: Instant Pot, this is the time to seriously consider investing in this amazing kitchen appliance. Both Kimberly and Mary Beth were skeptical at first of one more kitchen gadget. But both are in agreement that it has transformed their RV kitchen and cooking routine for their families!
- Gather your favorite Instant Pot Recipes. Thanksgiving day is not the time to experiment with new thoughts or ideas on how to make tried and true recipes in the Instant Pot.
- Make a list and check it twice! Although living in an RV doesn’t always resonate with bulk food shopping or storing grocery items for days, this is definitely the week to find that extra refrigerator or counter space to do just that! Go through your recipes and make your shopping list. Ready, set, GO! (This is a great time to enlist the help of your roadschoolers in estimating the ingredients needed, actually handwriting the shopping list, and helping in the kitchen!)
- Don’t wait until Thursday to get the party started! Do as much pre-Thanksgiving day planning and cooking as possible. If you already own an Instant Pot, now might be the time to go out and invest in an extra pot and lid for this already amazing kitchen appliance. Go ahead and cut up any vegetables for ingredients, such as celery or onions, a few days ahead and store them in containers. If you are making deviled eggs, boil your eggs a day in advance. (Just don’t forget to go ahead and peal the eggshells so the inside yolks do not turn green.) Every minute you spend before Thursday is one more minute you can take out of the kitchen to enjoy your family on this special holiday.
- Share the Thanksgiving spirit. You don’t have to have come over on the Mayflower to share your Thanksgiving feast. This is a great time to be neighborly and take advantage of your nomadic surroundings. Sharing the cooking load with friends and neighbors takes some of the heat off your kitchen and also makes for a memorable holiday meal. Kimberly and Mary Beth shared Thanksgiving dinner together during their first Fulltime Family meetup! It’s a great time to make new traditions and memories!
