nukes

The other guy's might shoot me for what I'm about to reveal, but on the road I cook and Donna gets a break.
I even do the dishes, but sometimes I let her dry them.


Likewise, but often I use our solar dish dryer.;)

Our microwave is a small .6 cubic foot model that is "external", that is to say it's not built in. Obviously we use it when we have shore power but primarily we cook from scratch once all the prepared frozen meals run out. Usualy after the third or fourth day on the road. The M/oven is great for reheating left overs and milk for hot chocolate and other snacks.

It's great to have it available for those days when it's too hot inside for the stove/oven or too buggy outside for a comfortable meal preparation on the campstove.

It can be placed on a small table outside and under the awning, near the trailer's ac receptacle or in the back of the truck when not in use.

By the way - that is the Oregon coast in those pictures.
Really nice view. :)
But the view should not be paired with fried potatoes for breakfast ;)

Thanks - we enjoy the spots we select to have meals at.

As for the menu, well I'm nearly 70 and I'm not an ounce overweight. Now I do not say everyone can do this but I love my meat and potatoes when I'm hungry. I never pay a lick of heed to these trendy studies that tell us what we should or should not eat. No one will ever convince me that to graze like a goat is the way to live. If I was intended to eat a bail of veggies every day I would have been given a longer neck to reach the ground. I'll probably die of a heart attack on some mountain trail. Sobeit!

Hi Ken,
It is not my intention to prescribe you what to eat, or to hurt you.
But, only the thought of fried potatoes for breakfast is not very
attractive to me (and many continental West Europeans).
That's what I tried to communicate.
Here is a photo of my normal breakfast. Very basic, isn't it?

Enjoy your meals! :wave

Maybe I should eat fried potatoes for breakfast. Could you promise that I too "wouldn't be a ounce overweight" ? YES!!!
no? oooh:sad

Shouldn't this be in the FOOD section?

Lex! What is that black stuff on that piece of bread (?)

To each his own... but I'm with Ken on the fried potatoes. (Mind you, they're not what we call ''french fries'' but instead are generally sliced very thin and sauteed until tender and browned, in a little butter or olive oil. Mmmm. A great thing to have with an egg fried ''over easy.'')

:banana

:wave All disclaimers declared.

I understand the continental breakfast - they serve that at poolside in all the tony casinos in Vegas, fruit juice, a couple of rolls and a coffee.

Now that is about what we like to do at sunup when we begin driving for the day. We pop a thermos of freshly-brewed coffee close to the driver and some sticky buns nearby while we watch the sun come up. However, along about 9 or ten it is time to pull in and cook something more substantial. The thin discs of potatoes fried in butter are a nice compliment to the ham and eggs. And, maybe we should call this brunch because now we are free to hike or go take pictures with only a sandwich in our pack for the middle of the day.

Maybe it is just a difference in culture on the eating habits. ... no need for a microwave here!

Beautiful pictures, Ken! When you all come south, down to Oregon, let us know. We would love to have you stop by or at the least, have a meal together.

I wish I had my digital camera here so I could show you OUR typical breakfast -- at home and on the road. It is a baggie of Fiber One Cereal mixed with Good Friends Kashi Cereal, no milk. We have it every morning along with our coffee. In fact, I'm munching on it as I type right now. That's why I liked Tim's motto of:
FIBERglass people are REGULAR folks. ;)

Tea, 2 slices of bread, 1 with chocolate grains, 1 with jam. On the photo there is no second slice of bread because we ran out of bread ;-) In stead of that there is a typical Dutch bake called 'beschuit', an airy biscuit.

So Mary, the black stuff is actually brown chocolate grains.

Microwave

Lucky people,

We wish we were with you on the relaxing stops at the coast.

We are not there yet. I prepare in advance for our weekends, while working full time. We get off at 5 PM and dash down to the coast for the weekend. And then relax for almost two wonderful days.

Breakfast? We usually have a hard boiled egg, some cereal or a bagel. The eggs were boiled before we left for the weekend.

We usually grab a sub for dinner on our way to set up at the campground. No cooking. On Saturday we usually have a nice dinner that has been pre-prepared and reheated in the microwave.

During the winter at the coast you often have to face drizzle or rain early in the morning. But boy oh boy are the hiking trails beautiful. Especially with an extra nice sandwich prepared with sunflower seeds, avacadoes, some chicken or cheese. Along with a nice thermos of hot tea to warm up with after the hike. We rarely go to the coast during the summer months.

We trek to the mountains, where the weather is so beautiful that we do all of our cooking outdoors over the fire or on the coleman stove. Unless the skeeters are out. Then we retreat to our wonderful little trailer!

Short weekend trips call for a microwave! We are lucky that our Casita has such a large fridge. Holds everything we need for a weekend. Even a freezer. We need to try ice cream. Anyone tried it? A new experience for us after our coleman tent trailer and ice chest.

Ann
