Leisure Time RV Wants You to Adopt a Pet

10-19-2015-AnimalWelfare

Here at Leisure Time RV, we care about more than life on the road. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Animal Welfare Oklahoma City to help more pets get adopted this year. The Oklahoma Animal Shelter is one of the best places in the state to locate your new best friend and perfect travel companion.

Why Adopt a Pet?

Adopting a pet will likely be one of the best decisions you make in your lifetime. Not only will you save the life of an animal, you’ll gain a family member that quickly becomes your best friend. According to the United States Humane Society, adopted pets are good for your self esteem. They’ve been proven to be emotionally, physically and psychologically beneficial to their owners.

The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter makes it easy and affordable for you to leave with a new pet. You can adopt a pet from 12 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., any day of the week at 2811 Southeast 29th Street.

Find Your New Best Friend

Animal Welfare OKC makes finding your new best friend simple. In addition to stopping by the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, you can find outreach adoption services at other venues like PetCo and PetSmart. A number of the shelter’s cats are also available at the Midwest City PetSmart location every day of the week. Log onto the Animal Welfare OKC website to find out when an outreach service will be coming to a store near you.

Already Have a Pet?

Adopting a pet isn’t the only way you can help animals without a home. Those who are unable to take in a pet can make a tax-deductable donation to the shelter through the site’s Animal Welfare Donation Station.

Three Easy and Delicious Crock Pot Recipes

If you are all about having fun on vacations in your Leisuretime RV, and cooking is not a highlight in your day, a crock pot is a must!! You can throw a few ingredients in the crock pot in the morning, enjoy your day and still have a good dinner waiting at your RV home.

Here are three easy and really good Crock Pot recipes:

BARBEQUE BEEF SANDWICHES

All you need is your favorite barbeque sauce and a couple pounds of chuck roast. (Cooked low and slow, it becomes very tender and tasty.) Cut the roast into a few larger pieces and add the barbeque sauce. If you like it hot add some red pepper flakes or red chile powder. If you like garlic, add powder or chopped. The key really is to cook the meat with the chile powder or flakes and garlic with just about a quarter cup of water low and slow – at least 6 hours. Then shred the meat, add the barbeque sauce and let it flavor the meat for about an hour. The barbeque beef served on soft rolls with a green salad, or a potato or macaroni salad is a wonderful combination.

CROCK POT STEW WITH A PUNCH

You will need stew meat, potatoes (peeled or unpeeled) and chopped into bite size pieces, a few cups of frozen corn, a can of Rotel, a can of chopped tomatoes, and a can of beef broth. Combine everything in your crock pot on low and cook for at least 6 hours. You may want to add some salt and pepper to taste and garlic salt is a good addition as well. Serve with some shredded cheese on top and with warm flour or corn tortillas and enjoy. This is a particularly good recipe for fall camping!

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

This is another recipe that is a favorite for fall camping. Look for any chicken tortilla soup mix in your grocery store or mix up your own combination of garlic salt, pepper, onion flakes, cumin and red chile powder – a key ingredient – the more, the spicier. You will also need cubed chicken (you can boil your own or make it really easy and buy a roasted chicken, de-bone and cut into bite size pieces. Combine the mix with the chicken, two cans of chicken broth,a can of corn, a can of black beans (drained) and 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. If you like it a bit on the hotter side substitute one can for a can of Rotel. Because all the ingredients are cooked in advance you just need to cook this on low for a few hours to let the flavors cook through. You can top with tortilla chips, grated cheese, chopped green onion and sour cream. Really nice on a crisp fall evening!

We hope you have a chance to try these recipes and that they become some of your Oklahoma RV trip favorites!
