Yes … it is time for a change here. For those of you who aren’t closer by I thought I would update you on the changes afoot for myself and the family. You see 3 weeks ago we got a house bus and our plan is to hit the road in it come Christmas this year!! It is super exciting and a dream that has been many years in the making however the reality is starting to hit home as I have to sort, de-clutter and prioritize what will come with us.
On the whole we don’t have that much stuff but when your kitchen space is suddenly about a quarter (maybe even less) of what you have then things start to get interesting. As I open my kitchen cupboards and begin the process of deciding what comes, what is stored and what is given away I realize just how much sits there waiting for an occasional use. Three sizes of cake tins, two loaf tins, three different kind of muffin tins …. now it will be down to one of each. Do I sell things which haven’t really been used yet …. like that Tupperware thing that looked so good at the party??!! ….. do I start using them or do I just store it to deal with later?
Even our shopping habits are going to have to change with our limited cupboard space on the bus. At the moment we do one weekly shop and a monthly bulk co-op order however I can already see that this will have to be converted to a few little shops in the week. We just don’t have the space to stockpile or have things just in case any more. Our cooking and baking will also all have to be adapted to a tiny space and while I’m welcoming the challenge I’m also aware that there are things I haven’t even considered yet. Things that I’m sure will come to bite me in the you know where once we start the shift from house to bus.
So please excuse me if the blog is a little late or non-existent in the next few weeks/months as it will be due to our focus on sorting and using up the stockpile of food, which I doubt will be that exciting to share, rather than baking up a storm and trying new recipes. Soon enough though I’m sure I’ll be in the swing of things and bringing your recipes from on the road 🙂
I’ll keep you posted and until next time, I hope this finds you healthy, happy and full of the joys of life.
