Try These Recipes For an Unforgettable Texas RV Park Thanksgiving

Texas RV Park | Mill Creek Ranch ResortHere at the Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we want you to be able to celebrate your holiday season with as much gusto as possible, whether you’re staying in one of our cabins or a great RV site her at the best Texas RV park. This year again, we help take some of the weight off of your Thanksgiving demands.  Join us for a potluck dinner,  Mill Creek will supply Turkey and Ham for everyone’s meal, while you get to bring and share all of your great side dishes with the other guests. If you don’t want to have a public Thanksgiving, then we’ve got you covered with some great ideas for how you can cook your own meal, even from the comfort of your RV.

Turkey is the great entree of choice for our American holidays. You may be daunted to attempt roasting this giant fowl, but have no fear, turkeys have been cooked in much worse situations than a crock pot before. In fact, RV Cooking Show offers this unique way to roast your bird with the least amount of time or effort possible in a clean trashcan. For those less adventurous, RV Free Wheelin’ offers this simple and slow cooked dutch oven option. Either recipe is tantalizing and simple, which is the perfect combination for outdoors cooking.

You are probably aware that the biggest concern with cooking outdoors is keeping the recipes simple, the clean-up minimal, and the food tasty. A few tips should give you confidence in your ability to be a camp chef. Like remembering to pack spices for your trip. Salt and pepper are obviously useful and easy to pack. Other spices may take a little forethought. Try to plan out your meals in advance so you know what you need to cook, then you can simply measure out your spices in advance. Keeping the measured amounts in sandwich baggies or ziplock bags is a great way to keep them handy and easy to pack.

“But Thanksgiving is supposed to be a huge feast,” you may be saying. “How can we keep the dishes to a minimum?” One of the best ways is to consolidate your dishes. For example, making sweet potatoes in a dutch oven is just as easy as setting the pot over hot coals for an hour or so, checking to make sure they are soft. You can add twice the Thanksgiving spirit to this dish by adding in cranberries to give the meal that special dose of tartness. Using some of the spices you packed with you, like nutmeg, cinnamon, or maple sugar. Get creative, and try out some new ideas or recipes. With a  little gumption, you may find that Thanksgiving in a Texas RV park is your favorite way to enjoy the holiday.

Planning a Reunion Near Dallas? Special Events Are Even More Special at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

special events dallasReunions can be a great way to gather your family and catch up with family members you haven’t seen in a while (or new ones you might not have met yet!). If you have a large group you’re trying to gather, the planning process can seem overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help smooth the process from the reunion planning pros at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, a Dallas special events venue.

First, if several families are involved, you will need to start talking to them early to gauge their interest and availability. You may want to start this up to six months to a year in advance, depending on how many people will be involved. While you’re talking to them, be alert for any signs that they might be willing to help! The more help, the better. Gather email addresses or start a facebook group for easier communication.

When you’ve got a good idea of when and how many people will be interested in attending, you can pick a venue. Keep in mind that Dallas special events venues can require plenty of advance notice for large groups, so call as soon as you can to make reservations for your 2014 weekend reunion. You will also want to be sure you are aware of any family members with special needs and make sure the venue you have chosen can accommodate them (wheelchair accessibility, etc). Mill Creek Ranch Resorts has kept our guests with special needs in mind in our facility designs from cabins to meeting spaces.

Once you have reservations, it’s time to plan meals and activities. Remember everybody who said they’d be willing to help? Put them to work! Some tasks to delegate could include ordering T-shirts, handling the money, organizing menus (or talking to the caterer), planning games for the kids or scheduling activities, games and prizes, handling presentations or acting as Master of Ceremonies. If you have a photographer in the family, see if they’ll take pictures. Keep everybody up to date on who’s doing what. If you’ve got an email or facebook group going, posting updates will not only keep everyone informed, it’ll keep everyone excited about the upcoming reunion. If you find that some of these things cannot be handled in the family, remember that our Dallas special events venue can help you with the planning.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, event planning is a big part of what we do. Don’t hesitate to call us and see what we can help with. Whether it’s ideas for activities, information about fun things to do in the area, catering services, or questions about our amenities, we love to help!

Call 877-927-3439 now to book your 2014 weekend reunion. Still want to give 2013 a whirl?? We are offering special rates for 2013 reunion events held on a weekday, or if your family prefers a cooler Fall weekend reunion we still have availability then too!
