Honey You Shrunk My Kitchen!

IMG_0533Life in the travel trailer has been an adjustment for all of us.  One of the biggest adjustments for me has been food related.  The grocery shopping, as well as the cooking, and preparing meals is still something I am getting used to.  It definitely takes a little longer to do the shopping when you are  always in a new store.  We never know where anything is and the prices vary so much from place to place, but things are always less expensive when they are sourced locally.  It’s not a bad thing it is just different.
