Fall is in the air and there is no better time of year to enjoy the RV lifestyle. Campgrounds all over the nation are getting into the spirit of the season by planning big events that both young and old will enjoy. In fact, I am planning to go down to Galveston for a Spooktacular Halloween weekend, complete with an RV Halloween decorating contest and trick or treating. No, I have no little ones at home anymore, but kids are always fun to watch as they get so excited about Halloween.
Of course, with Halloween coming, not just food, but creepy crawly looking food will be the order of the day. One of my favorites is Spooky Spaghetti and meatballs, but you have to make the meatballs look like little mice running through the spaghetti. Mushrooms make great mice ears and, of course, a long piece of spaghetti must be strategically places to look like the tail. Peppercorns make great eyes.
Another fun thing to do is to make Poltergeist Punch. Just mix a punch of your choice, drop a lit glowstick in it and you’ve gor yourself one paralyzing. Speaking of glow sticks, you can add an eerie green glow to your campsite by simply dropping glow sticks in water bottles and hang them around your site. I really love this idea because it is a bright, and easy way for kids to help you decorate for Halloween or anytime, really.

I love new recipes and cooking ideas, especially during the holidays! If you have any you’d like to share with RV Nana, just submit them in the comments section. I’d love to cook up something new and different during my RVing holidays.
Also, remember that most of the parks nationwide will have events and activities planned. Give your favorite parks a call and see what Spookacular Events they have planned. Then go RVing!
Oh, on a side note, but still totally related, if you are looking for great cooking gagets for RVing, check out the FireDisc at PPL Motorhomes. I never leave home without it.
