Doug has been wanting this Blackstone griddle for a long time. During our six weeks of "camping" we decided it would be nice to get it. Oh....it was so worth it.

Cottage time is over and we are back in the RV. Actually we like it better in the RV and while the screened porch was nice, we'd rather "tough it out" in limited space. Loki is less nervous now as he knew the RV as a home base. Sometimes it's hard having a rescue dog who was abused and has low confidence. That being said, he's made enormous improvement with us these past 4 months.
New to us / Doug has a very cool new griddle. It's a 22 inch Blackstone and runs off propane. So far we are loving it. More on that upcoming as we've had some great meals cooked on that bad boy.

I wanted to start off saying how sad I was to learn of Kim Bultman's death. She wrote at the blog A Little Lunch and it was always a pleasure to hear from her and visit her blog. Too young to go. Kim, you will be missed.
Well, it's now June and we have been in our RV since May 10th. We aren't completely tired of it and have enough room but it lets us know we never want to a full time RV people. Nope. I like our house. Last post I mentioned our awning broke during high winds just as Doug was about to retract it. Seriously, he said "I think I'll pull the...." that's as far as he got and the awning arm ripped off and flew on top of the RV.
With that kick to the gut Doug thought it would be nice to rent one of the cottages for a few days.
It's nice to sit on a screened porch and also nice not to hop around to different camp sites when our reservations are up.

I'm reminiscing about this meal when I still had an oven. We had it 2 weeks ago but I didn't get chance to post it and share. It's a meal you can put together using pantry items.
Gnocchi is certainly a great pantry item to have on hand. So many things you can do with it from soup to serving with pasta sauce to baking. Yes, baking. I'd never thought to bake it until I read a recipe from Joanne at Eats Well with Others.

What a crazy couple of days we have had moving furniture and boxing household goods. I told our son it was as if we were plunged into a busy, physically active nonstop warehouse job. We ache from carrying things and many many trips up and down the stairs.
Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post about the stovetop meals and my lost wallet. Now that we are settled in the RV I will be able to visit and post again. The kitchen demolition started this morning so I will be glad to see what it looks like later this week when we return to do laundry.
Here's what I brought for the In My Kitchen event at Sherry's Pickings and Weekend Cooking.
From the Indian market in Tallahassee I have these pantry staples. They were packed for this trip.

Man, what a week. It's been fun and hectic looking at things for the remodel and I planned to share that but.....all I could think about the last few days was my lost wallet.
We were walking out of Home Depot, Doug pushing the shopping cart with our fixtures and me following with Loki on his leash. I had placed my wallet in my purse and I evidently did not shove it in deep enough. Unbeknownst me, it fell out.
A mere ten minutes later we arrive at the library and I discover the absence of my wallet. Raced back to H.D. and scour the parking lot, check with customer service and a manager. It is gone. Arggh........ Everything is handled now such as getting a new drivers licence ordered, credit cards canceled, a new insurance card requested, etc.
Today I will just share the week's meals. Any who follow me on Instagram may have already seen these photos I posted yesterday. These are meals we can prepare without the use of an oven. Lately I have been making a list of skillet/stovetop meals for when we live in the the RV during the demolition.
