4-Day Weekend RV Menu

Menu planning is a skill that I occasionally work on and I’m certainly not adept at. My husband often requests that we have a better idea of what we’re having for dinner. I’ve read that meal planning can be very helpful. There have been seasons where I made a much better effort at doing it. Unfortunately, when I was in high school I didn’t take home economics. I certainly wish that I had! I’m sure that the skill would come much easier to me had I taken that class! Sorry Mrs. Retzer!! Fortunately, there are lots of resources available and one of these days, I’ll do some research and make myself a better homemaker!

For our recent long weekend RV trips I really needed to have a planned menu so we could grocery shop, load up the rig and stay organized. Here is our 4 day RV menu:

Snacks: Nature’s Bakery fig bars, Goldfish crackers, Lara bars, nuts, trail mix, applesauce, apples, mandarin oranges, bananas, and 6 gallons of fresh water


Dinner: pasta, marinara sauce, pesto sauce, French bread, & bagged salad


Breakfast: coffee, hot chocolate, pancakes (box mix), berries, whipped cream

Lunch: sandwiches, apples & carrots

Dinner: hot dogs, buns, chili, & bagged salad


Breakfast: coffee, bagels & cream cheese

Lunch: sandwiches, apples & carrots

Dinner: Tony’s Seafood restaurant (Point Reyes National Seashore)

Dinner: bean and rice burritos (Yosemite National Park)


Breakfast: coffee, oatmeal, cold cereal, milk & bananas

Lunch: sandwiches, apples & carrots

  1. My parents were professional chef’s and expert meal planners. They catered weddings and cooked for camp meetings every year. It was all organized in a 3 ring binder
    Secret ingredient – it takes practice and a lot of work to make it look easy

  2. Looks like you can meal plan just fine 😉 I started meal planning when we decided to live on a budget and pay off our loans before kids…and I never stopped because it saves us money and keeps stuff from going bad. I should note, unless we’re traveling I only meal plan suppers and Weekend meals. Weekday breakfasts are cereal or oatmeal and lunches are sandwiches or leftovers and fruit. With the extra stress in our lives right now I take my meal plans from archives on this site: https://www.makingthymeforhealth.com/meal-plans/ and fill in the rest of the week with my kids favorites.

  3. Do you all like grapes? They are good frozen in the summer too. I had purchased a children’s cookbook but for got to give it to you when we saw you last year. I’ll mail it with two others I’ve been saving.
