Today we venture to Disney Springs for lunch, cupcakes, and of course for Minnie’s Rock the Dots celebration. She’s getting her own star on the Hollywood walk of fame! We’ve been in the Orlando area for about a month, and have been at three different RV parks. We leave here (Sherwood Forest RV Resort) on … Read more Day trip to Disney Springs with Epic Mini Life
For this meal I had a two-step process because I used dried beans and used my Power Pressure Cooker XL to cook the beans first (see instructions below for the beans as well), then proceeded with the main dish. You could make the beans ahead of time or just use a can of refried beans … Read more Vegetarian Enchiladas
The clothing storage is fairly generous in our 5th wheel – yes I just said that, out loud. The three of us share a 5′ wide closet and four drawers. There is a small vertical (hanging) closet where we store our linens and towels. We all shared one small walk-in closet in our townhouse for … Read more Organizing small closets
I’m not a brilliant cook. My Mother wasn’t even a good cook. It’s ok, she would tell you so. My childhood menu consisted largely of red meat & potatoes, canned/boxed goods, and spaghetti. It was practically mandatory to go to the local seafood restaurant once a week (a tradition that I really loved, thanks Mom!) and … Read more Anyone can cook… in an RV oven!
This mac’n’cheese isn’t much more labor intensive than a simple stovetop version but it’s so much more yummy! And it’s geared to match your specific tastes or use up all your random bits of cheeses, which ever comes first. I personally like the “no cheese left behind” benefit! What you’ll need: 2 c. pasta noodles … Read more Crowd pleasin’ Baked Mac’n’Cheese
It’s all fun and games until your landing gear bolt snaps in two places. Just when we’ve got the hang of setup and teardown (Michael is backing in like a pro) something goes haywire… one of the two landing gear legs stops going down. This can only mean one thing… the landing gear bolt snapped… … Read more Broken Landing Gear – Epic Mini Life S1E6
In this video we document a trip to Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The audio was terrible for the most part, and we’ve included subtitles for the important parts. The rest is music! If you like it, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up! We’ve been on the road now for a few … Read more Free Range Tatanka – Epic Mini Life S1E5
For the first time since embarking on our purposeful, minimalistic adventure I had an experience of consumer guilt. But it’s not what you might expect… We have been waiting to celebrate our sticks and bricks closing with the purchase of new iPhones for all of us. Michael’s is cracked and takes forever to load apps … Read more My first experience with consumer guilt: Bells and Whistles.
Any sense of control you have in your lives is simply an illusion that you’ve allowed to persist. Your life could end in the next few minutes, or you could live to 120 with modern medicine. You can take actions to minimize exposure, but ultimately you’re here for a limited time. Worrying about “stuff” and … Read more Control and stuff, or experiences?
Well, this probably isn’t the video you’re looking for, but it’s a fun one! 🙂 We visit Marceline, MO, home of the Walt Disney Hometown Museum and his childhood home. We visit both, and share it with you! We’ve been on the road now for a few months, and we’ve learned a LOT! A LOT. … Read more Live Your Dreams – Epic Mini Life S1E4
