Cooking in a Campervan - Part 1

Part of the food adventure in New Zealand was cooking in a campervan.  This thing did not have a lot of space.  The table turned into a bed at night, and if I was in the "kitchen" cooking I either had to sit down at the table or go stand outside if Doug wanted to move to/from the table.  I might have had more counter space in this tinier kitchen though.
Cooking dinner our first night.
Setting it out on the table...
Beef sausages with spaghetti and cheddar cheese on top.
Another night cooking, using all the pots the camper came with. Yep, it only had two pots. And one tiny pan.

Oooh, street side veggie stand. I need this, and this, and this...
Our findings of the day: Bottle of Pinot Noir, Super yummy coffee, zucchini, asparagus, onions, bread, avocado, garlic, tomatoes, and mushrooms.  All of this food is a major improvement over what we find in Hawaii, where most of these items would be local, but out of my budget, or shipped in from the mainland.
A complete meal on wheels!
A New Zealand Ketchup bottle. I brought one home.
Doug is very excited about his breakfast. See, last night we took the ferry from North Island to South Island. That meant dinner was sandwiches on the boat followed by sleeping in a parking lot.  The last good meal we had was dinner two nights before.
Another street side veggie stand. Only this one is more out doors.
And you pay on the honor system.
Though you are threatened by the use of cameras.
Never seen milk in bags before.
One slice takes up the entire frying pan. The only frying pan.
Lamb sausage, alfredo pasta, and green beans. MMM
What to do if you don't feel like eating lamb sausages again? Strip their cases and make them into meat sauce.
